It feels like the end of an era...our families were joined by Christ, but our earthly bond that I cherish, were those weekends spent as youth, when our parents (your dad and mom, Louie and Mary, and our parents, Bob and Marty) would get together to play cards. Happy sounds of laughter, exclamations and general comraderie were in the background as we kids played together. It felt safe, warm and happy. May God comfort you all as you gather to remember and rejoice. Love you!
