Adam and Danamarie,

I am so sorry for your loss. Your Father was a tough guy all the way to the end! It speaks to his character for the way he raised you Adam, your work ethic is second to none and, although I never had the opportunity to tell him myself, you should know how proud he should be of the person he raised.

May the many memories of your time together keep you strong throughout this time and know that we're always here for you as well.

Love,
Dave, Pam and Reagan Genske
