I loved hearing the story of you walking my mom down the aisle. We never had any shared memories, but that’s one story about you that made me chuckle. You fought hard and long, you’ve earned your peace. Rest easy.

Our dear brother was one of a kind. We miss him dearly but have wonderful memories of happier days filled with fun, food and laughter. May the Lord bless and keep him until we meet again.
