Holding all of you in our prayers. Your family has been constants in my life for over 40 years. You always had a seat at the table and an open door for me growing up with no extended family of my own near. My memories of watching any Cleveland sporting event with your dad is partially why I am such a sports fans to this day.

I am forever grateful to your loving and faith based family. You showed me what you can do with a strong faith which in turn helped me get on the path to seek a Christian based faith of my own. Your love and kindness helped shape me (the good parts) into the person I am today. Your mark on my life priceless.

I am forever indebted to this family and while I selfishly wish for your dad to be here, I know he is in heaven at peace with Jesus.

Love , The Boscos Tim, Veru, Zach and Julia
