I miss the great times our families shared. Our Dad's worked hard and had fun when they were joking around trying to out do each other. I loved both Uncle Leon and Aunt Peggy and you were like my baby brother. Time gets away with us and I wish I could have spent more time together. I'm praying for you and your family. You were the most loved son of two of the happiest parents I've known in my life. I'm so sorry for your loss.
