to eveyone who knew my dad in the past I wish you could have known him in the last years. Especially in the last months as I did. Dad was truely a gift, a great pleasure to be around until the cancer took total control. I just wanted to say Thank You to any and all who sign this and tell you that Dad said to all those closest to him those who hurt deeply these words. Which he put on his marker. Remember Me But Let Me Go. I will Always Remember and am painfully, but yet knowing his love and his wish letting him go God Bless. With Love . His daughter, Carol
