  1. Words cannot express how numb I am right now. My deepest sympathy for the entire family. He will be missed more than words can ever be spoken. I enjoyed our time when we would spend the entire day together laughing, he would sing to me while we at the casino. We held hands, had lunch and talked. He was like having my Dad back in my life. I will be forever grateful for his friendship and for the family including me. Thank you for your love “Pops”. Your one in a million. Now you can be with your beautiful, wonderful wife Jo.

  2. Daddy, 87 years today, it wasn’t enough time. I wish so many things for all of us whose lives you touched in so many different ways. My birthday wishes for you this time are to thank those special few. Christine and Sal, The love of all our lives and the most special gift Dad ever left to this world is my sister Christine. The time Dad had with you were the best days of his life and he lived each one to the fullest as you do too. So Do I Christine Marie. Michael and Pam, My brother who carries the family name into history once more. He is the Patriarch of the family now. I love you Michael Phillip carry on the good work for God is with you My Captain. Gary and Gina. Oh what a special little brother you are. My father’s son for sure and a good and loving man. His days bowling with you were wonderful for him. The baby of the family and so loved just like little sister. Robert and Stacey The middle child and so like his mother. You fed Daddy well. You are Uncle Mike and Nanny and your Mom in the kitchen. Your beautiful family and the love you all had for Dad. He treasured every moment and morsel with joy. Nicolas and Maryann, Nothing was more special to Dad then Thursdays with the both of you. How wonderful for him he loved his time with you very much and told me. You carry within you generations of successful men but mostly it is your grandfather who you remind me most of. I wish you could see what we see when you Dance. You join as one out there on the floor so beautiful when you take her in your arms, gosh you both float, just like Pa but more it is in your soul. My Mother I should also mention how I appreciate her marrying my father to start with just so we could be born. Thank you Mom for your kindness and sympathy for all of us. I wish you all Peace and Love. Joy however is for my daddy for he has found it once more on a different plane then us. The most wonderful thing I can say about dying is all your sins are forgiven and people will remember all the good more than the bad. You lived life to the fullest and never stopped having fun. I will miss you Daddy and all the time we didn’t have but I remember every precious moment we did, and I will treasure those. Bless you all I hope to be able to see you all once again. ” I did it my way…” With much Love Linda Celeste Mary Paone Daring (Donald).
