Dear Chris, Paige, and all the family,
Rose and I were so sad to learn of John's untimely death, when we lost a great friend of many years. He was my favorite neighbor in Penn National. Even after he moved from the neighborhood, we still stayed in touch, playing golf in many locations around the area, traveling to the South, and playing also with you, Chris. We also can't say enough about your mother, Trish, and our sorrow at her suffering and ultimate death from her health issues. It was truly a heartache for Rose and I that we couldn't attend your father's funeral due to medical appointments in Hagerstown, MD. Know that our thoughts were with you at that time. We loved your Dad tremendously and sent a donation in his memory to the preferred charity, the Safe Harbor Homeless Shelter, Our hearts are with all of you as you seek to recover and find peace at this difficult time.
