    Joe, memories abound of an older brother having lunch with his three younger siblings’ home from school on their lunch break from Saint Mikes, wrestling on the living room floor & watching “Lunch with Soupy”. An older brother always helping Mom & Day make an old home a place of comfort and then you were gone, missed but never forgotten, never forgotten and always loved…. Mike, John, & Paul

    Dear Family, I would like to express my sincere condolences at the loss of your dear loved one. Please be assured that your tears are not unnoticed by the Creator of Life. Although your deep pain will not easily disappear, praying to God will bring comfort to you as you grieve. The Bible tells us that God is “healing the broken-hearted ones and is binding up their painful spot (Psalm 147:3). May the “Father of tender mercies” and the “God of all comfort” strengthen your faith and give you courage to face the days ahead (2 Corinthians 1:3). My sincere condolences to the family.
