Dad was a hard worker his entire life and took pride in the ability to provide for his family. We cannot put into words what it has meant to us as a family to have had such incredible parents in our lives. While we will forever miss them, we take comfort in knowing that Dad has been reunited with Mom. We will honor his memory and strive to live our lives to make him proud.
