Very very sorry for your loss. It is always hard to let go. The word of "he is in a better place" does not always do the trick. Please accept my condolences.

We send deepest sympathy to all of you once again. We both have many memories of times spent with him at home in Cordaville, and the Cape. Our children thought he was great too and send their sympathies. I have many memories of him especially at home in summer making " hunters stew" ( including deer,pheasant, pigeon, squirrel, and he use to tease us about 'road kill--but I never believed THAT )Also at Christmas when he made his own special eggnog. His love of the Red Sox too.There are so many times spent with him and he will always have a warm place in our hearts. With prayers for your comfort and love , Wendell and Sandie
