Jane and Stephanie, I’m so sorry for your loss. I feel fortunate I was able to spend some time with my fishing buddy over Super Bowl weekend, and I’ll always be grateful for the many trips to Rock and Iron to reflect back on.

Jane There can be no grief and sorrow had there been no joy and happiness. It is this thought that will live with you and give you relief. We could all use a hug.

Jane and Stephanie, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember going to "Aunt" Jane and "Uncle" Peter's house and laughing at all of his jokes (even the bad ones). Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the mass at St. Christopher's on Saturday. I wish I could be there to pay my respects. Please know that the entire McArdle family's thoughts and prayers are with you. With sympathy, Mike and Mary McArdle
