Bonnie, Dawn and Henry, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. She was truly one of a kind. She had such a big heart and was so giving. She touched so many lives. She was an amazing horse women and I had recommended many students to her over the years. She was like a second Mother to me and she always said I was one of her adopted kids. I will truly cherish the times I spent with her and all the wonderful memories of her.

Nana, thank you for all the memories we shared growing up. The good old days at the farm, the fairgrounds with pop, my favorite horses shamus and patches are just a few of them. We got through tough times together and those are some of the things that made me than man I am today. I know ill always be that little boy running through the fields to you, but rest peacefully knowing I've grown up to be an honest straight forward man. Love You Nana.

Mom, Today was a tough one, saying goodbye to you seven days ago and saying goodbye to Dad seven years ago. Our hearts are broken but knowing you and Dad are together again, no longer suffering, enjoying the beach at Seaside Heights, zooming around Lake Hopatcong with me in tow water skiing, and galloping the fields on the back of your beloved Shamus, truly warms my heart. I will love you always.
