Dear Peg and Family,

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband (father). He was such a kind man. Always there at St. Stan's to lend a helping hand with a smile on his face. He was so kind to my mother Victoria. She was so appreciative for all of his help with the Lady's of Charity. May God, family and friends embrace you during this tough time.

My deepest sympathy
