Claudia, Mike, Liz, Anne Marie, Ralph- I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I have so many great memories of him from my childhood at the K of C hall, events, and at your house. I can close my eyes now and still 'hear' his hardy laugh. (And I still have no desire to eat calamari, regardless of his encouragement.) Your parents were always very caring towards my parents, my siblings and I, and I'll be forever grateful.
Know that you and your families are in my prayers.

Sue and Andy
