We are so saddened by the passing of Big Bac (as we call him). Going forward, every time that we call out for Little Bac, we will be reminded of Big Bac's amazingly radiant smile. It is his smile that stood out the most to us. He laughed easily and deeply and he made you feel and share his joy. We were also moved by the way that Bac greeted us and made sure that we felt welcome wherever and whenever he came in contact with us. He made it easy for us to relax and feel that we fit in.

When you come into a new "family" by marriage, you never know how things will work out. We were indeed fortunate in how things turned out with the Trans. We will be forever grateful for Big Bac allowing us to genuinely become part of his wonderful family. And, we will miss him deeply.

With sincere sympathy and love,
John and Cindy English

Bac and I worked together side by side for almost 22 years. But we were also friends. He shared a lot; wisdom, compassion, his family. He taught me so much. I always enjoyed his smile and upbeat attitude. I'll be forever grateful and will never forget him.
