    Steve and Pam and family,
    I was so sorry to read about your dad’s death. Philip talked about your parents so much. I know he spent a lot of time at your house. He talked a lot about your dad. Your dad was his sponsor when he made his confirmation. He always loved your mother’s stufed shells. He talked about life at the Fortre’s so much. My in laws always had stories about all the things they used to do there in the neighborhood. I’m sure your mother is glad to have him at her side again.
    It is never easy to lose a parent but to be able to have him for so long is a blessing. Barbara and I always stop at your mother’s stone when we’re there and now we’ll say a prayer for your dad too. RIP Mr. Forte.
