Family,
I am grateful to all of you for taking me as part of your family for many years. I loved your Dad more than you know and I have many happy memories with him. Just like Steph, I can recall his laugh at a moment’s notice. He raised wonderful human beings who epitomize kindness. He forever touched my life and I love you all.
