    candle 5Dear Family … I have many great memories of your dad and Jacquie in Venice, Florida. As front desk concierge during both of their stays at Aston Gardens I remember many fun times and conversations. Your dad and I even spent time together at Venice Hospital in rooms next-door to each other.

    candle 1Dear Jan, Jay and Family,
    My deepest sympathy on the loss of your dad and one of my favorite residents. I know he’s smiling from ear to ear and together with Jackie whom he loved so dearly. I will always remember the two of them and wish I could be there in person for his service. Please don’t ever hesitate to call me if I can do anything for you and of course Dean. Thank you for all you did Jan, your truly an amazing daughter who stood by and devoted your time to your dad! I wish there were a lot more daughters and family members like you!
