  2. Dear Wanda & family, thinking of you as you say a final good-bye to your Father. May you
    find comfort in remembering fond memories of the life you all shared together…

    …..Don’t think of him as gone away,
    his journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets
    this earth is only one.

    Just think of him as resting,
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years…. Ellen Brenneman

    Heartfelt sympathy to u all. Carla Volpi
