We were really saddened to hear of your husband’s passing. Although we never had the pleasure of meeting him, it sounds like he was an amazing husband, father, and grandfather; and a wonderful friend that blessed so many with his kindness. You certainly have a beautiful family and I trust you will lean on them during this difficult loss. Sending lots of prayers and comforting hugs. Connie & Joe McGovern
