Carrie Ann and I are pictured with her parents, Tom and Jan Grippo, and I am next to my Mother, Donna Pike (holding my Dad's Cane in his memory). He wasn't there in person, but he was definitely there in spirit. He loved Carrie Ann and her parents, so losing him a month before the wedding was tough on us all. He was happy for us, and knowing he approved of her made all the difference. Rest in peace, Dad.
