    He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 50 years, Judy. They are now rejoicing together as we grieve. But no one missed his wife more than my dad. Let us all hear the angels sing as they now shag the Boulevard together forever now! Til I see you both again Mom and Dad, love your baby daughter.
