Dear Dad, A number of years ago I said I was proud to be your son at your retirement dinner, those words ring true today. You were the epitome of how a son, husband, father, grandfather and friend should live. Rest in peace knowing you left an enduring imprint on the many lives you touched in your lifetime. God bless you. Always in my heart, Jack
