Not a day goes by where I don't think of you. The times we could have had. You were taken out of this world to early and I never got the opportunity to really get to know you. I was only 5! Mom did her best to raise Kyran, Donna, and of course me. Tough time during the late 60's.

You would have loved your grandkids Ethan, Eli, Liam, and Emma. We love you!
