You will be sadly missed after 50 years of friendship. We do not have another 50 years to generate another friendship like the one we shared. Our children called you uncle Dear because you were so dear to us. We shared so much playing bridge and camping at Lincoln Pines just the tip of all the things we did together and friends we shared. Will love and miss you always. Now that you are with Maryann give her a big hug from us. We hope their children will remain close to each other and to us. Lots of love from the Sullivan and Browne families.
