You and Mrs. Sparks were the best! I don't think that I have a Rainbow memory that doesn't include you somewhere in it. Good memories - loving memories. And I treasure them. I am a better person for having known you, and blessed with the love and friendship of your children.
Through faith, I know I will see you again. It is just so difficult to see you go.
I will miss you. I will always love you
God speed on your journey forward.
