Wyane, Russell, Robert and Thomas and family...words can’t begin to express all of the sorrow and love for y’all right now. Your parents were two very special people who reared their sons well and helped them become the fine men they are today. I have so many fond memories of being at their home, dinners and playing Uker, not to mention nights at the VFW with them. And though I know we are all saddened by their loss, I like to think of them as being reunited in heaven for eternity. May God’s peace and love embrace each of you during this time of sorrow.
