I cannot even imagine the pain you all are enduring, as I was his friend and thought the world of him. I'm so sorry and my heart breaks for all of you. Jenny and the girls, we hug you the hardest. He was a stellar person in everyone's life, especially the class of 1983., STELLAR!! We all loved him so much and we hurt so badly for all of you. We will all miss him so much, we cannot imagine your pain. Love always and please let us/me know if you need help with anything. Love always. I'm so very sorry.
