    Teresa, Kenny and families,

    I am so sorry to hear about your father.  I know this is a hard time, but know he is in a much better place.  Alzheimer's is a cruel disease to those around the person, but kinder to the one who suffers from it.  Remember that and please find some solace in that. 

    I will always remember all our good times as children and early teens with all of you. 

    Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help and my love, thoughts, and prayers are with you and yours always.
