finally sitting down TO relax and I have a heavy heart tonight. I attended a funeral for a friend. I didn't know him well but his son holds a VERY special place in my niece's heart. Todd you haven't married Celeste yet but you are family. You may have buried your father in the ground today but he is always with you in your heart. I learned today that you have a picture of your father holding Jasper I would like to see that one day. He seemed very full of life and in love with the ones around him. I know you are hurting and I wish I could take all the pain away but like all wounds this one too will heal, and leave a scar. The scar is the memory and the truth that your father is with you always! I love you.

I am very sad to hear of David's passing. He and I were friend's throughout elementary and high school. He was a kind and caring soul.

To his family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Memories are the best gift during these times. Hold tight to the love of those close to you.

Today I lay my husband and best friend to rest. Not sure if I know how to say goodbye. Words cannot express my feelings today. I love you Davey and I know you will keep a close eye on our children. Goodbye my friend but not forever we will meet again. Save me a seat, preferably at the bar
