Please accept my sympathy on the death of your stepfather. I didn't know him very well, but when I did see him we usually had a pleasant conversation.
I'm sure he will be missed.

Jill, Sending my condolences to you and Harvey.
I am so sorry to hear about your step dad's passing.
He was a sweet man, and I have good memories of his
visits when he use to come in to The Standard Times.
I know he was special to you and am sure you will miss him.
Joy Pereira
