    You loved me first but your family loved you to your last breath. Thank you for teaching me to be the person I have become and will continue to be. As promised I will walk across the stage with you on Thursday and I will be all glitzed and glamour. I love you and mom more than you both will ever know.

    You and your family are in my heart and mind. My condolences on the passing of your father. May your memories give you peace and comfort. Despite the loss of the physical presence of your father. We know that God has assigned him to watch over you throughout your life.

    Maryellen, Dougie, and Sean and all your families. On behalf of me and my family, my most sincere sympathy to you all in your time of sorrow. Dad gave it a good fight. May he be at peace knowing there is no more fight. I hope he meets up with mom in Heaven. I will put a luminary in dad’s honor at the Relay for Life. Maybe some day we will have a cure for all cancer. Love and hugs to you all.
