    Dear Michelle and Family;

    I am sorry to hear of your loss, I truly know how much your Papa meant to all of you. I am glad to hear that God has relieved him of his pain and has taken him home to his final resting place to be with the one he loved so much.

    As I remember, your Papa was a hard working, devoted, strong and loyal family man (soft as a teddy bear on the inside), who lived a wonderfully full life and gave you all so very much to be thankful, happy and proud of.

    May all of those beautiful memories bring you closer, bring smiles to your faces and warmth to your hearts.

    Our Condolences,
    Michelle Dudley (Caizzi) & Family
