   Posted Sat April 12, 2014
Dad - Thank you for everything. You, yes you, Dad, have been and are my hero. I am eternally grateful for all you did for Mom, Donna, Mike and me. I hope you are having a great time with Mom, by the way. Please give her a huge hug from ALL of us. I can't express the depth of feelings, the sense of loss we are experiencing without you and Mom. Hopefully one day, we'll all be together to shoot hoops, shag flies, and have some of Mom's lasagna. Until then, We love ya's and miss ya's deeply.
vic (jr.)
