Mrs Shaw, Brian, Mike, Kerry & Lauren - my deepest condolences. Your dad was a great guy and I know you will all miss him dearly. He always made me laugh and made me feel welcome in your home. Hold on to all of the great memories that you have of him - some of my favorites are from summers in Dennis.
