I can't believe you are gone. You were still young and there was so much to do! I have a hole in my heart where you were that nothing will be able to fill. Now when you get too heaven, is there a table that Gramps is sitting at with his shoes untied in his white tee shirt did he ask "who are you?" Please give Grandma and Gramps, Uncle Andy and Aunt Flossie a Big hug from me. Tell Grandma Christian is going too be a daddy, she would have so loved that. Aunt Bonne, Jamie, Brian and families are here and we will look out for them. Sleep sweet Unk until we meet again.

Rest easy we have the watch now...
Until Vahalla

Love you so much and will miss you even more ❤❤

I am so going to miss the Dinner and Dunkin Donuts runs with Unk and my Dad that turned into a "Remember When" trip that all of us (Lisa, Jamie, Brian and Me) dreaded as kids. Please give Grandma and Gramps a big bear hug for me! RIP Unk .. I love you ❤!
