Condolence Messages

  1. To meet the six is to know the qualities of the man (and wife) who nurtured, drove, cajoled, ruled, swayed, influenced, challenged, loved and cried every step of all the lives they lived as family. He was iconic in all his flaws, his gifts, his strengths and his passions. Infuriating, loveable, laughable and unforgettable. The greatest love: his their’s, their’s his. Echoing always, every footstep in remembrance of ‘what a man, what a father’. Always. A father perfect in imperfection, realized in whole. An incomparable man of all seasons. Dad. A man standing to the last round of the last bell. Then Off! to catch the next flight. Business class of course. Mom waits.
