    Dad I miss you. I miss mom. I still have Meghan. I'm not sure how old she is but she has been a comfort. Having her has helped heal my heart. Losing you in 2009, and mom in 2011 was so hard. I still see glimpes of you both in others at times and it takes my breath away. I found my other Father's family and love them and Dad Eddie Hourihan. He is there too. I hope yall meet and you tell him about me. Love you Bridget

    Thank you, Grandpa, for giving the family so many wonderful memories, and for imparting to your children a love for music and for laughing. Thank you for showing your whole extended family so much love, and for always giving us your time. That spirit of yours will pass on from generation to generation and so will last as long as the Sobins. I love you, and will miss you.
