    Cheryl and Cecilia, my thoughts and prayers are with you both and your children for your loss! I met your dad only a couple of times when I was younger. I always knew from family stories he was a good person. I remember him in his Navy uniform as he visited us in New Hampshire when my dad was stationed there! (Carl Weary) aka Uncle Sam, he was your grandma Floss brother. We lost him in June at 89…. Huge loss for me as I’m sure this is for you all! Again hugs and prayers to all. I wish I would have been closer to know his great character Karen spoke of. ❤️🙏

    I’m glad you and his grandchildren were able to spend an extended amount of time with your father last summer/fall. I am sorry for your loss.

    My brother, John was a great scource of inspiration, wisdom, kindness,sweetness add humor to name just a few of his qualities. It is almost inconceivable to grasp that he is the baby of our family of himself and four older sisters, that he would be the first to go to his eternal reward. Living the Faith that was installed in us, we realize that God’s plan isafter all the best! He imitated our mom with how she handled her illness and passing with ‘panache, one of his favorite words! Down to the last, that he never had to leave his woods. As i reflect on his conversations with me, they shine ever more brightly and I miss him intensely. He spoke many times about the good life he had and was grateful for it, two great daughters and their husbands,the six beautiful grandchildren, his unmathed Navy mates, brilliant coworkers at Poloroid, gun club buddies and the greatest neighbors a person could have!
    Love ❤️ him and fervently wish him eternal peace. Big Sister, Irene
