Some of my fondest childhood memories are of Uncle Bobby, Uncle Fred and Uncle Tommy jamming on their guitars at Grandmother and Granddad Sykes' house in Wichita. Jeff and Ronnie - you were just little tikes and Daryl, you were just a little baby. My sympathy goes to all of you. I know how painful it is to lose your Dad, but his memories will be with you forever.

Love always,
Cousin Barb
