I'm writing for my husband; I know he will miss all the stories you used to tell, he would come home and tell me and we would laugh about it!! He will miss all the afternoons on the porch drinking a beer and just visiting with you... everyday I didnt have to ask, I knew where he was at and it warmed my heart to know that he enjoyed your company so much!! You will be missed greatly!! Rest in peace, we love you!! -- Amber
