    I pray that you are with the love of your life watching over all of us. You and uncle Jim meant a great deal to me. You comforted me at one of the worst times in my life. You made me feel loved and welcomed any time I came around. I am so sorry it wasn’t more often. I hope our family will do you proud and grow closer from our great loss of you. Brian, Jessica, Jacob, please call me any time. I will always be here for you as she was here for me.

    Love you all.
