Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. We loved him. He was a dear man. Grandma Roxie and Grandpa Lee thought the world of him and the whole family. You are all special to our family.

It is hard in words to sum up a lifetime of family, experiences, joys, and accomplishments. All that has been experienced and created lives on in the people touched, taught, and influenced during the brief time here on earth. It is up to us all to remember and build on those lessons shared.

Prayers and Love to all of the family.
