I have been keeping you in my heart and prayers as Sandy continued to update me on all that has been happening to your family. Your sweet husband and father and grandfather was a special man with such a wonderful sense of humor, a warm smile, and a positive attitude. I admired him as I first became acquainted with your family when Julie was in my fourth grade classroom. As the years passed, all of his children were in my class or Sandy’s class and the relationship became a kind of friendship. We were together at celebrations that Sandy hosted and I remember how impressed I was with his intellect, his love for his family, his goodness, and his sense of humor, all of which seemed to be part of his smile that could even be detected in the warmth in his eyes.
I am deeply sorry for your loss. Words just are not adequate in situations like this to totally convey the depth of what one wants to express. Please know that I am sad for all of you and that I wish I could be there today to tell you in person. Sending love and hugs.
