My little brother, Dave. So sorry we didn’t get to see you and give you a hug for months. Happy your pain and suffering is over though. I love you to the moon and back. Guess we shared a special bond since we spent so much time together after Mom died since Dad was a shift worker.
Kelli and Michael & families. You have our very deepest & sincere sympathy. Please don’t ever hesitate to ask if you need anything. Miss your Dad so much. Hugs, Love, & Prayers As ever, Aunt Helen & Uncle Ron & families
