Cindy and Ryan

Thinking of you at this time. Memories of happy times at family gatherings. Playing a wicked game of volleyball. His laugh that would make us all smile. His pride regarding his work.
We will all miss these special things.
Don, Lisa, Michael, Charlene, Eric and the kids send our thoughts .
