    Sorry to hear news of your father’s passing Mark.

    I’ll send this in addition to the message that my sister left on behalf of our family.

    You know that, from a young age, I admired your father’s unique energy – for his work at St. Mary’s, or reading novels, or walking, or painting paintings, and so on … and of course, the conversations – always enjoyed his insights.

    I expect that most people that knew your Dad admired him in some way.

    Of course I’ll miss visiting with him, yet I’m so glad to have known him,
    even more grateful that the two of you have had each other over the years.

    So many great memories.

    My sincere condolences. I was so sad to hear that your dad had passed.
    We worked together for so many years and after he retired he came to SMU 2 or 3 times a year to visit. He had such an outstanding work ethic, it would certainly be hard to match today.
    He was such a proud dad, proud of everything you did, and then, a proud grandfather. You gave him most of the wonderful things he had in his life.
    As you go through this difficult time, try to remember, the things that make you feel sad today, will be your precious memories in the future.
    You and all of your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I knew Matt when he worked at Saint Mary’s University. He was always ready to lend a hand or provide some helpful advice. It was a pleasure to know him. My deepest condolences.
