October 20, 2021

When we were little our mom and dad gave us the opportunity to see the world. Every summer we went to a different state for vacation. We went to amusement parks and water parks. We did all kinds of things that was educational and most importantly we did these things as a family. Dad taught us that family is the most important thing in the world. He will truly be missed and is and always will be LOVED!
