Today is the day after August 2nd and my heart still feels your loss. The practical jokes you played....or the consideration of help you always brought to one in need. You my son brought joy to my heart. You are thought of often and are missed significantly. You still bring a joy to have the memory I so richly enjoy and look forward. With that comes the absence of your kaugh and your sprit of giving! Our Lord brings us comfort beyond all understanding. I will always bring to mind who you are. Not were!
