Chris, Michael and Darlene. God bless you and your family during this difficult time. I never met you but your dad told me a lot about you guys and was so proud. I will miss him dearly! His laugh and smile and smart comments about my favorite football team the Steelers. I’m sure he is looking down from heaven and watching over all of you. Sending prayers your way.
