"My deepest sympathy to my dear sister Paula and her three sons, Nick, Larry and Jason at the loss of her dear husband and father to her sons. My brother in law Larry was a loving family man and the hardest working man I have known. The last three years of his life have been devastatingly painful. He never gave up hope with the love of his family by his side. His courage and positive attitude will never be forgotten. May he now rest in peace and may God bless the dear family he leaves behind. He will never be forgotten. Diane Bernier Iskierski"
