Mike, Claire and family - so sorry to hear about Don's passing. I would see him and Pat at various functions over the years and he was always such a nice man; so friendly and always took an interest in what was going on with me and my family. Great guy! Mike - I remember him being at our pee wee Giants football games - always with a cigar!

I enjoyed getting to know Pat and Donald for the short time he was on Hospice I looked forward to our visits and listening to him and how Pat would make him anything he wanted to eat then it was popsicle and coffee. 64 years together he said the other day - true love u will miss my visits with you guys. Thank you for allowing me into your lives to take care of him - Bridget ❤️
