Message from the immediate family:
Thank you for all the love, prayers and support we have received which is truly heartwarming. Following the most recent public announcements from the CDC and our Governor, we have had several discussions with Chris Consoletti Director and Owner of the Wareham Village Funeral Home and our Family regarding the Coronavirus and its implications on the health and safety of all of our loved ones. As a family, we have made the painful decision to cancel the planned traditional services for March 17 and 18. We will plan a Celebration of His Life at a later date to ensure that he is honored for the incredible man that he was and life that he lived.
