September 6, 2018

So many happy memories. What a vibrant personality! He would sneak up behind me in Schwegmann's & kiss me on my neck, but I always knew it was him. He truly cared about other people. I remember the time he raced to my mom when she was in an automobile wreck. He always said it was a privilege to care for his father-in-law, never complaining.
It was my privilege to know & love him. Heaven is rejoicing !
Marilyn, you were a perfect mate for this crazy guy. lol Rely on your memories for comfort.
Love you moocho.
