I have so many great memories that you are a part of - going to my first St. Louis Blues game at the old Checkerdome with you and Marty...riding around in the big red tank almost every single day... impromptu parties at the ditch on the farm road!!! What about the night we found the baby snake on the inside stairs at the house on N. Ingram?!?! I know we didn't get to talk very much over the past few years, but you are a part of some of my greatest memories. This world is gonna be a lot less beautiful without you in it. I'm gonna miss you so much...

Dear Reecer, I am so sad for your loss. My prayers are with you and Julie's family. I remember the first time I met Jan. We were all working in the ER that night. You and Julie had flown to Kentucky and Jan was worried because it was getting dark. You called in and gave me to message to "tell Jan were back." Not knowing who Jan was, I just announced "does anybody care if Reecer is home?" Jan said "I do. He has my daughter". We all had a good laugh over that. I still have the little wooden spoons you gave me when you guys went to Africa. I pray that peace and comfort will be with all of you. My daughter, Stephanie, and I send our love and prayer.

Jan I am so sorry to hear my Julie Bug is gone. I loved her and enjoyed her so much when we were in tech school. I am so thankful Julie and I had dinner together In December. Again I am so sorry.
