Tony and Vin
No words can adequately express my affection and appreciation to your Dad, nor my condolences to your family. He was my brother, Doug’s, best friend for more than 55 yrs. He loved Doug so, he included Max, myself and Ryan in many of the Pepsi golf trips and functions over the years. He has left his mark of love and generosity on family that will never be forgotten. God Bless your family in their grief. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
