Pam and Debbie I had a lot of great laughs with your Pop and , now that I think of it, your Mom as well. Even though their time has come to go home again and be together, there are still many laughs and joys for all of us to attain. They both would not want it any other way. Stay well and safe and I am so sure that both your parents are both so happy with the way you two helped and have conducted yourselves over the last trying years. God bless and never regret....even though its a bit rough now....life is for the living. Go Hawks...go Cubs!!!

Phil and I are so sorry for your loss. He will be missed by all. I am guessing he is by now sitting with his beloved Judy and they are now together watching down and smiling at all the joy they both brought to so many family and friends. Sending love and prayers to everyone.
