Melissa, we love you guys so much. This is such a sad time as we pray for your family and hope for peace and comfort for you and the children. This is such an immense loss, the words just can't be found. He was a kind and gentle man, loving father and devoted spouse. You two made some team. Will remember all the good times from Fenway days, to Columba's, to weddings, to babies being born and family gatherings with all the kids together. So many good times to think back on. Your husband always wanted to bring good into his life and you were all that and more to him.
Much love, always know we are here for you
