In time, I hope you can replace the deep feeling of loss with the legacy of the strength he undoubtedly passed on to all of you, which was clearly demonstrated by the love and commitment you all showed him, especially in these past few years.

I’m so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. I was in town just a few days ago and was wondering how John was doing. My thoughts are with all of you.

John/Beeps was such an important part of our mom's life, and all of our lives, for so many years. We had a group chat going last night, with everyone sharing memories of the many fun times with John & Audrey/ Mom/ Nana; trips in the motor home, game nights, movies [paying for 1 movie but sneaking in to see others!] even a moment of fame at King Richard's Faire with Beeps chosen to be the Prince alongside 4 yr. old Delaney, as the Princess. Such a sweet, kind, loving man. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. So sorry for your loss!
Love from all the O'Rileys

I wanted to pass along deepest condolences from our family to all of John's children and grandchildren after the news of his passing. While Steve is unable to convey his sympathy as he too passed away, I know he'd want you to know how fond he was of of your Dad and how we always enjoyed seeing him over the years with Audrey. He always spoke of his family with such pride. As you navigate the days ahead may the memories of John bring a smile to your face and peace in your heart.
