    Dear Wendy, and Lori:

    I was saddened with the news of your father’s recent passing.

    His mother and mine were sisters. Although I knew my Aunt Tina and Uncle Frank fairly well, I only met "Sonny" during his east coast visit forty years ago.
    Your dad and I exchanged Christmas greeting cards every year, and spoke by phone occasionally. We loved to talk about gun collecting and politics. I will miss receiving his Christmas cards and our occasional chats.
    May God comfort your hearts. Amen Cousin T.J. CARNEY 111

    Thank you for your kind words Mr. Elliott and Mr. Carney.

    Someday, it’d be nice to come out East and visit with you Cousin Tom Carney :)
