My son,josh is coming home from Korea on thurs. after having been gone for 2 years teaching English there and I will be picking him up at the airport at 6:30pm. I have fond memories of visiting all of you in Cortland as a child. My father always told me when I was scared of monsters or robbers that your dad,our Uncle Pat was a police man and wouldn't let anything happen to us. It always comforted me that he was a defender for the good guys against evil. I liked both of your parents very much. Your Dad was a very likeable man showing warmth and humor. I am glad he lived till the age of 92. I am also glad he lived to enjoy his grandchildren and also a great-grandchild. I hope all of you are a comfort to each other for your loss. Lovingly your cousin, Colleen
