Darlene, Sheila, Brent, Michael, Debra, David and Sharon,
We are so sorry that you have lost your dad. He loved you all and your mom very much. He worked hard to provide for you all and made sure you got a good education. Keep your memories of him in your heart and always remember the good days and good times with him. We will miss him as he was more like a brother to us than a nephew and cousin. Take comfort that he suffers no more and is with your mom and God.
Love, Aunt Mae, Carolyn & Gail
