  1. I’m deeply moved by the passing of your Dad, who seemed to always know my name even when his memory was slight, his gentle smile will remain embedded in my memory of him forever.

    I will be forever grateful for allowing me to visit him the day before his passing, and sharing his last moments here on this plain, but know that his soul is finally soaring with peace and love, he can now fly with wings instead of the plane he so cherished…

    May you find solace today and always, that you served your Dad well, and I am sure he knew the sacrifices you made for his comfort.

    My heartfelt sympathy to you Barb, Sharon and Little Gussy…

    Love, Debbie
