I can't believe it's been 15 years. I still remember how funny and laid back you were. We were all stunned when we got the news. You just seemed to have too much life in you to be gone so suddenly.

My husband and oldest son wore your memorial cuff until the lettering was almost too faded to read and keep them to this day.

You were working my husband's district on his day off and that made the loss of you hit even closer to home. God bless you and keep you, I know you're cracking him up with your wry humor right now.
