So heartbroken to hear about Guy Rae. It is so hard not to remember him as the long legged, tall, skinny little brother of Sheri and Shannon. Growing up in a small town and a small school, your friends brothers and sisters were like your own siblings. Always smiling and laughing! May God give you Peace that only He can provide. May He give you strength to endure the long journey ahead. You all continue to be in my prayers!
