Members of the family 

It is with sadness but also joy that I bid farewell to Blaine Havice, who I know was escorted by angels to his final reward in heaven with our Sacred Lord. He was a good friend, loving father, faithful husband, and a faithful servant to Our Lord. 2 tours in Vietnam and a Korean War Veteran; he served his country well. In the Ancient Order of Hibernians, he served as our veteran coordinator and was a member for over 10 years. I am sure he started this morning and will every morning to come with the Lord having a "cup of Joe", which never seemed far from his hand. You might not also have known this, but Blaine made an unsuccessful run for Congress. Just as well, he would not have fit in well with that element. I am sure this is going to be very tough on wife, Ann and daughter, Kelly Ann, but they will make it. He was so proud of both of them and his main concern was that they make it through all of this. They were a tight knit unit and when part of such a tea!
m leaves it is always hard on those who remain. There will be tears, but also wonderful memories to comfort them. I have lost a true friend on earth, but I have gained a great advocate in heaven. Tom Kane, the Kane Family and Members of the AOH.
