For Jimmy and Joe - I am so sorry to learn of your dad's passing today from Loretta. I'm sure your father was a very charismatic, sincere and kind man who worked very hard and who was worthy of all the love life offered, because I see all these wonderful qualities in the two of you. May your father rest peacefully. And may you Jimmy and Joe find peace and love through him all the days following.

My best always, Diane
