We had too many memories to pick just one, but I’ll never forget when we went to downtown Knoxville and parked in a parking garage. When we got ready to leave, we couldn’t figure out which garage it was in. You were pretty worried, I wasn’t. Just another one of our adventures.

Going to miss you Mom!

The world is crazy these days and know one knows what will
happen next. You know I Love you, I will see you again.

You are now with Dad.. Happy & Pain Free and You now know the answers we are all wanting to know & When our time comes You & Dad will help us find our way once again.

This picture was taken one trip when Mom and Cindy came to visit.
We never knew what Duke was going to do next. However, one memory i have is when Mom and Cindy met Sue and Lisa and Sue drove us all around Atlanta being our Tour guide since she was raised here. She even said little things when strange folks were walking around Downtown Atlanta you never know what you may see. Sue and I still talk about that ride today. LOL We really had a good time. Memories, They will last Forever!

Fly High Mom, Fly High

Love you,
