How do I begin you were such a big part of my younger years.You and my sister made me an aunt for the first time and me and Paul Neves godparents to a beautiful baby boy named Nathan who turned out to be a great young man and father to a beautiful and amazing baby boy named Noah who made you a grandpa. The many memories you, my sister Tricia and our families made will be forever cherished in my heart. I hope you are truly enjoying the streets of gold. You are among some pretty amazing family and friends up there and I know I will never forget the joy you brought us. I know your pain is no more and its sunshine all the time. Until we meet again brother in law fly high....
