Michael I was sitting here remembering your parents, I do not know if you remember me but I just thought the world of your mother and father. Your dad was my buddy. My kids was just talking to me about him from when I took care of them and the kids would come in and visit them. They remembered him talking to them about the war and how he met your mom!! They were both truly a blessing. I remember when Carmen had told me to call you, and we talked about me taking care of them when my son was old enough, and then when I had finally met you when I waited until you got there to be with him. I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to meet such an amazing man, and then to me his lovely wife!! My most sincere condolences always.
