Aunt Mary, Laurie & Duane, Sue & Wes, I am so sorry this happened. I have great memories of Daly family reunions & Charles St. was one of my favorites. Uncle D*ck was always goofing around with all of us kids, we loved him & always looked forward to seeing you all. My heart is broken for you, you are all in my thoughts & hopes. I love you all & I know this really sucks for you all right now. I know. I’m here if you need me. And Laurie, it’s like I said about my gram, you have to find the silver linings whatever they might be & focus on those. Uncle D*ck was a great man & he obviously touched many lives. We were all lucky to have him. I love you.
