Greg, Charlie, Diane & Family,

Please know that we’re sending our love & best wishes. I Jeff remember your Dad as a huge SJC booster who was one of those Dads who made you want to do your best just to hear him say “Nice job” & he always put a smile on my face as he seemed deep down as ornery as we all were – you could see it in his eyes & smile. He was bigger than life and BIG, too! and I, having been raised w/o a father around really truly respected a man like your Dad – I kinda lived vicariously through you guys and other buddies who had strong fathers. I have nothing but fond memories of your Dad and hope you are all well. Hoping we can see you all soon.

Love,

Jeff & Diane
