Conrad, I can't believe that it has been 21 years since you were taken from us. You would not believe how much has changed over the years. Even with so much time that has past I remember the night you were taken from us as if it was yesterday. I know you have been watching over us and that you are so very proud of your 3 beautiful children. They have all grown up so fast and become wonderful young adults...I know you are so proud of them. Their mom has been a rock as you know. Always know that we will miss you and look forward to the day we can see each other again. RIP brother
