Love you Unc. You are now in the arms of Grandma again. No more pain and no more suffering. I will always remember you coming over to the house eating just a plain mayonnaise sandwich!

My dear cousin, more like a brother, as I sit here and think, words are hard to come by. I have very mix emotions of your passing. I'm happy that you are no longer in pain and I'm happy that you were welcomed by many who left us way to soon. I'm happy that after so many years of not feeling your mom's hugs, I know she was first to greet you. But I'm sad, sad that I didn't get say goodbye and tell you that I love you one more time. That's my selfish side. Karaoke will not be the same without my partner. Love you always, Judy Jo

My baby brother....

Words cannot express how much you are missed. You were my baby from the day mom brought you home. I loved you then, now and forever.
