You have my deepest sympathy. When we lose someone close to us, they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we’ve lost makes them part of us.

Losing a Dad is such a significant loss in ones life. Even when they are terminal and you know it is for the best, it’s still a tough loss. Thank God for our faith, knowing they are spending eternity in heaven! My heart goes out to each of you – Debbie, Jeff, Susan, and Brian. Mrs. Bole, I cannot imagine the loss of a spouse you’ve spent your married life with for 49 yrs! The first memory that came to my mind is always seeing you all sitting on the side at St Vincent’s for Mass. Having been in school with Jeff, I recall seeing Mr Bole at many different school functions, a quiet, gentle, nice man is how I would describe him. May his memory live on through each of you! May God carry you through the most difficult days of grieving. You have my deepest sympathy.
