    Madeleine, Michael, Missy and Maddie I am so sorry that your Husband/Dad passed away. He was a part of our family and more like a brother than a brother-in-law. We have had the pleasure of sharing our home in Massachusetts and Florida with him. He was always smiling and telling his jokes and making us laugh. I will miss my cribbage player.
