Dear Wendy, and Lori:

I was saddened with the news of your father's recent passing.

His mother and mine were sisters. Although I knew my Aunt Tina and Uncle Frank fairly well, I only met "Sonny" during his east coast visit forty years ago.
Your dad and I exchanged Christmas greeting cards every year, and spoke by phone occasionally. We loved to talk about gun collecting and politics. I will miss receiving his Christmas cards and our occasional chats.
May God comfort your hearts. Amen Cousin T.J. CARNEY 111
