    Karen, John and family; So sorry to hear of your dads passing, he was a wonderful man. I have such fond memories of him and your late mom from my childhood, they were both always so kind to me and always made me feel welcomed in their home. May they both rest in peace together again.🙏 With sympathy, Lorie Moran DiColo
