I will always remember one of our last family reunions in Belle Center. You and Jerry came to look at my new granddaughter ( Raistlyn), and Jerry asked to hold her. Then you said get her back now or he will end up taking her home. She will graduate high school this coming year. The two of you were so blessed with a deep love for eachother and family. You were more loved than you could ever know. See you later cousin, you will always be remembered with love.🙏❤️
