I met Red probably 15 or more years ago through Judy, my best friend. Red loved to tease me and he always made me feel like part of the family. I know he’s happy again being reunited with Angie.

Eternal rest grant to Red,, and May his faithful soul, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace.

Uncle Red will be missed! Although I didn't live close, I thought of him often. He and Aunt Angie were wonderful God Parents, and I know they are happy now that they're together once again! Sending lots of prayers to the family for comfort and peace.
