Son, we are grateful that God gave you to us.  We just wish he hadn’t called you home so soon.  We were never prepared to live our lives without you.  We love you and will miss you.  You will always be in our hearts. –Mom and Dad

Brother, you always put up a hard front with your jokes and teasing but we knew you were a softie on the inside.  We love you and will miss you. –Barb, Deb and Sue

Dad, you were always there for me anytime I needed you.  I couldn’t have asked for a better dad or grandpa for Braelyn and Brynlee.  You were definitely the pick of the litter.  I love you Dad and will miss you forever. –Love Mirrissa

The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses, hospice staff and family friend, Liz, for all their care and compassion during this difficult time.
