    It is always difficult to hear of such quick passing to an aggressive illness, to a husband and father, brother, uncle who still had much to give, to his close relatives and friends, may he find peace and happiness and continue to be loved. Our deepest sympathies, Lorraine to you and your family. France et Richard.
