I have so many wonderful memories of you. We spent every weekend together. They were some of the best times when I was in my late teens. Your parents were the greatest and I loved them dearly. I know you are having a wonderful family reunion in heaven today, but there are many heavy hearts left behind. May God wrap his arms around your family in the days ahead and may their memories bring them comfort and ease the heaviness in their hearts.
