To Pam, Michael, Brian, Linda and Patrick ~ Just heard today of your Dad's passing. Having been part of your Mom's and Dad's wedding party, we went back a long way. Most recently saw your Dad and couple of you last summer at Hollyberry's. I'd just like you all to know how loved and respected your parents were, and how proud they were of each of you. I'll keep you in my thoughts. Please accept my warmest wishes for your own success and happiness in the future and be assured I have wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad. Love, Joan Connolly
