Richard, although we only got to see you on special occasions and the coincidental times we saw you with Kevin and Stephanie and more recently with Shain, we always felt part of the family. I know how you struggled at the end, so now it is time for you to rest in peace now that there is no more pain or suffering. Your job as husband, father and grandfather have all been served well. I can still see Shain in your arms and playing with him in the basement as Kevin recovered from knee surgery. We so enjoyed catching up with Pat and you whenever we got to see you.I never enjoyed a wedding more than when Steph and Kevin exchanged vows. It was such a beautiful event from finish to end. I realize we helped a bit, but it felt like family. That was when we really got to know you and both families. Such wonderful memories. Farewell our great friend!

Uncle Tiny rest in peace. Words cant say how much you touch so many lives. As I sit and look at the rocking chair from you and Aunt Pat I am so happy to say you were Uncle Tiny. And when we came up there and you took the girls to feed those geese and shopping in Chester. My life is better for having you in it. Love ya Uncle Tiny.

Dad Wolfe - I am so very lucky to have met you and had you in my life all these years (24 to be exact). I can still remember the first dinner I had at the "Wolfe" house and how intimidated I was of you....little did I know what a big teddy bear you really are. You have helped me more than you know with difficult decisions I have had to make, supporting Kevin and me with all of our crazy moves and being so proud of me through the various stages in my life. I also liked that you enjoyed new technologies as much as I did. You probably don't remember this but you helped me set up my first Compaq computer when they were still cool (far cry from our iPads). I loved and will cherish all the great conversations we had about corporate america, politics, the newest gadgets on the market, etc. and have always valued your advice and opinions. You were always proud of me no matter how many "air headed" comments I would make. I am so grateful that Shain got to spend the time with you that he did. We were a little worried that Shain would never leave your chest when he was a baby. You are an amazing grandfather and he will miss you terribly. I know that I have an amazing husband because of what you have taught him. You are his role model. He has listened and practices many of the values that you have instilled in him and I thank you for that. It is an understatement to say that I will miss you so I will just say it is your time to rest. I Love You - Stephanie

Tiny you didn't have to be first at this, Norma is six months older and you never let her forget it. How much will you be missed, let me see, wait I can't count that high. We loved you then, and we love you now, and forever. Bill

Pop, you can now rest easy, i there aren't enough words to describe how proud i am to be your son! i will never forgot all the things you tought me threw out the years.from my first camping trip , to you and i digging for crystals in reno. my love of building and work working comes from standing there as a child watching you work in the garage on projects , when i was finally old enough you stood behind me and tought me how to do it all. laying there with you in the way as you worked on moms car in the driveway is where i learned how to wrench on cars , or peaking over your shoulder while you worked on the damn furnace. a better father roll model mentor no son could ever ask for. just know as you look down i am the proudest son in the world!proud to be your son , even prouder that your my father!! Rest easy pop i will always love you michael!
