Debbie, I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing. He was a wonderful man. While my visits to Windsor Locks were few over the years, I never missed a chance to visit with your mom and dad whenever I was home.

Your dad had such a big heart, always helping people. After my dad passed away I always appreciated how he helped my mom when she was living at our old home. She would call him for everything and he would take care of it for her. And I know my mom was not the only one he helped. He was a giant of a man in so many ways who will be missed by many.

Debbie, you truly come from a wonderful family. Your grandmother Ester was my favorite aunt, your grandfather Walter was my favorite uncle, your mom is my favorite cousin and your dad was my favorite “cousin-in-law”
