Donald- you never met a stranger- I am
Honored to have met You. - I am humbled to have known you and your kind heart in some scary times for our boys. I was so worried you would get kicked out of the the RMH for the prairie dog but we all needed diversions!!! I pray for Melissa and the kids to remember and cherish your kind heart. It is how I will remember you for sure. God Bless

D-
You gave many wonderful memories You didn’t give that heart away freely but you loved with one of the biggest hearts I know with such gentleness, and so much kindness and understanding. A side of you many never knew. I am the women I am today because an amazing boy loved me for exactly who I was. I can’t begin to express them here or now. You gave me two of the most amazing and beautiful girls. I know it breaks your heart as it does mine that you were taken from them so soon. Like the man I loved for more than half of my life, they are brave, loyal & strong, kind & gentle, curious & smart, playful and outgoing. They are, just as you taught them to be/will teach the others to be, fiercely protective of each other. I told you a long time ago they will be raised to know the man I knew. I will shelter and protect them from harm the best way I know how.
