Mikey it's almost quail hunting season, I bet there's plenty of quail in Heaven. Ryan has so many of your qualities from shewing on the ring around the drink bottle to not knowing how to tell time. We miss you and Todd but never forgotten. Not a day goes by without thinking about you. Things and life are so different these days. Love you forever.
