Dear Sue, Al, Amanda, Pamela and Al, so sorry for the loss of your father/grandfather. Your family will be in my prayers. Maureen Flynn
Some of my best childhood memories were with Uncle Bill,Aunt Joan and my cousins at the Pocono house. My deepest condolences to the entire family.
JoAnn and family, I am so sorry for your loss. But as you said, he had a good life. He lived through a lot, and I always remember him with a smile. He was a good man. Hopefully, all of your good memories will ease the pain.
To the Stapleton Girls: So sorry to hear of the loss of your father. My childhood on Bingham St. was completely entwined with the Stapleton’s. The universe blessed all of us kids when your parents bought 1029, and ours got 1019.

Dear JoAnne, Ellen, Sue and Diane, I’m sorry for your loss, particularly at this time of year which is usually joyful. But this year has brought many breaks with traditions. Your family is strong, and I’m glad you have each other as you say goodbye to your dad.
Dear Sue, Diane, and Family, I am so sorry to hear about your father's passing. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
We are so sorry for your loss. We have many, many wonderful memories of your dad. He was a loving dad and fun Pop. He was a fabulous farmer, expert fix it guy,, and always thoughtful, loving and caring to your mom and his entire family. We are praying for your peace and comfort. Love to all.
Sorry to hear this news - 2020 just got worse. My brothers and I still cherish the times we spent at Promise Land Lake and the cabin on Maple Lane with Uncle Bill, Aunt Joan and the Stapleton girls. So many happy memories of those times. During the quarantine, I took a drive up there and went by the old house, the lake where the row boat was chained, the waterfalls down to the lower lake area, the beach and snack bar areas. It made my heart smile to think of the good times our parents provided to us up there with no Internet, cell phones or other electronics. Simple times and special memories. I hope Uncle Bill, Aunt Joan and my parents are enjoying Manhattans and laughing about how they could manage to take eight kids up there for weeks at a time. May perpetual light shine upon Uncle Bill.
