  2. June has been like a father to me throughout my entire life and he will be truly missed. I've known him as far back as I can remember and he has always supported & loved me unconditionally. He was a kind and gentle man; full of wisdom and lots of love. Heaven just received a great man. I will miss you but I know you will be watching me and guiding me from this day forward. Love you Dad and I'll be seeing you.

    Dear Carole and family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Odalis. I am so
    grateful I had the opportunity to see him this past August at our class reunion. He was just as warm and kind as I remembered him from more than 50 years ago.
    May God bless you and your family during this time and always.
