Condolences

A bended knee, a bowed head and a sign of the cross, my condolences to you and your family. It's been awhile Bobby and I really only knew your dad in passing, still I hope you find solace in your memories. ~grm

We're so very sorry we aren't able to make it in to share in your father's celebration of his life. He was such a smart and funny man. I, Aunt Judy, loved to hear his "on the job" stories. At that last family reunion he really had some good ones! Uncle John really appreciated getting his "out of jail for free" card, along with, I'm sure, Uncle Paul and Uncle Bob. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Much love, Uncle John, Aunt Judy and family

Funny how when you get older you realize just how important people were to you. Mr. Shanahan was my evening conscious. He kept me balanced and on track. When my dad passed, he was the one capable of pushing me forward when I didn't want to. I could never repay the impact he had on me as a kid. Love you buddy. Say hello to my mom and sister when you get there

My very deepest sympathy to your family on the loss of your wonderful father. I have fond memories of many gatherings with your family. Sending much love and prayers to all of you. Love, Joanne (Gilbert) Freeborn
