Thinking of you with love and prayers and remembering so many fun times together. Watching our boys shenanigans as they “played” in Stonebridge, shopping with Sherri in her black BMW, a golf trip to Ireland, 4 couples and kids on a Williamsburg weekend, and some relaxing happy hours. May your memories, love, and God’s peace ease your loss and give you strength.

Please keep in touch and let us know when you’re able to spend some time together.
