To Gayla, Juliana and Barry
Gauging by your many trips to Texas and stories about him and how he was doing, it’s clear that he was a sweet man who was loved. May you have peace in your hearts as you say goodbye in this life and send him safely home. No matter how old our parents are or whether or not they are ready, it’s simply never easy. Bless you all. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Kris and Patrice
