My fondest memories from my childhood are being your neighbor. Growing up with you and your girls as my second family, was amazing. Your joking and loving will never be forgotten. I will never forget Christmas the most, and you showing us every year Rudolph’s nose, even though it was just the water tower light, we kept that going on to the younger kids after we grew out of it. Christmas was the best with you guys. I loved you, and will hold your family close to me forever.
