Mike & all family, I certainly enjoyed chatting with your dad through the years when we visited Denver. Really a special man!! I loved the part of him being so passionate about watching and score keeping the grandchildren sports. Love that. With the passing of a parent, I know the waves of emotion just flow in and it is so hard. One minute at the point of tears and another minute smiling and recalling a great memory or funny story. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

With Sympathy,
Brian Brown

I’ll never forget going to Great Aunt Micki and Great Uncle Wendy’s house before Christmas as a little girl. I remember the wonderful aroma of oyster stew in the air, although I was too afraid to try it back then. Great Uncle Dale made an appearance as Santa Claus. How I miss those times.

my grandpa was always there for me and he was at every basketball game, lacrosse game, soccer game, and dance show. I always had the comfort of knowing I would look into the stands or the audience and see him cheering me on. Although he is with God now, I still know he will be cheering me on from heaven through the rest of my life. I love you Grandpa.
