I’m truly at a loss for words. You meant so much to so many people, you were truly loved! You were a hard working, good hearted man. A man who was well respected. One who knew how to keep people laughing & on their toes. You loved your family & only wanted the best for them. You were always there when they needed you. You & mom raised amazing children & for that I’m thankful because if it wasn’t for y’all I wouldn’t have the wonderful man that I do or my best friend. Thank you for all you’ve done! I love you so very much ❣️ Goodbyes are not forever, are not the end; it simply means I’ll miss you till we meet again!
