It's hard to believe that you have been gone from this earth 46 years, there is so much I remember about you but so much I missed. Only God knows the reason you were taken from us so soon. You left a hole in our hearts forever but we know that you are sitting with God now and rejoicing......that is my saving grace dear Brother. Until we meet again....I miss you and love you!
