Dear Mike, Erin and Gavin,
I just met your dad in November when we worked the Election Poll. After closing up, a group of us went out to get something to eat at Applebee's. I found out that your father worked at Jimmy Bryne's when my father was the day manager. We reminisced about our times there and the different people we knew working those summers.
I asked your dad if he wanted to volunteer at the Jersey Shore Dream Center in Asbury Park. Without hesitation he replied "yes" and I signed him up for the Thanksgiving dinner. Your dad did a terrific job and was a huge help.
But when there were slow moments during the dinner, your dad spoke so highly of you as his son and totally adored Gavin. He was so happy to have a baby in the family. I could feel the love that your dad had for the three of you!
In the picture I included is the Thanksgiving dinner-your dad, me (Nancy), Pastor Isaac and Debbie Vadas-Lueddeke.
I will keep your family in my prayers.
Nancy Kelly
