I remember the first thanksgiving at your house and how you taught me to play cribbage. Little did I know how invaluable that game would become when I taught it to Donald and Liz. The times that we worked on Danny and my house and the hugs you gave to our kids. I can imagine the reunion between you, Danny and Bart was so sweet. May you rest in peace!
