Online Condolences


  1. Your family doesn’t know me but I knew him well as a child. We were best friends when I lived in North Kingstown, Rhode Island back in the early 70’s. Our homes were behind each other and I remember hours and hours of playing outside (and a Schnauzer name Irish as I recall). When I moved we lost touch. For some reason, he’s been weighing on my mind lately and so I did some googling and found this. I’m saddened to hear of this. Perhaps he was weighing on my mind because he came to say hello again, I really wished we could have said hello in person after all this time. Just wanted the family to know that he touched someone as a dear friend so long ago but it made a lasting lifelong remembrance of him all these years later. He was a good friend and a good kid then, I’m sure he was a wonderful man and father.

  2. Kristen, Corinne and Cassie,

    It is with a heavy heart that I express my condolences. May you find peace and comfort in the good memories you all shared. My deepest sympathies!
