My brother-in-law John, after putting up an amazing fight against cancer, passed away this morning.
He came into our family in the early '70s, and he and my sister Mary were married in December 1973. This photo was taken somewhere around that time, and they stayed as happy during all those years as they look in this picture. It's hard to think of him being gone. I'll miss him a lot. He became a brother.
The family will gather in New Jersey within the next several days. I'll be leaving tomorrow for this sad trip.
