However, we can keep a special place in our hearts for all of those precious memories that we have collected over the years.May the peace of God bring you comfort. Prayers, Uncle Sam and Aunt Wilma

Dearest Lisette, Rick, Donnie, and Teddy, I'm very sorry for your loss, Your Daddy was very mentoring to me and non judgemental towards me, You Boys and I grew up together feeling more like Brothers to me than merely friends and Your Daddy was as much a part of my feeling this way as anything. I believe that he seen that we were Brother like and accepted and embraced that. Much Much Respect for him always and forever. I wish that I could be there for you all but I can't make the trip as I've not worked in 5 years and SS disability barely pays the bills then add cancer fight costs leaves nothing for the trip. Know that I have tears streaming as I type this message letting you know that my heart is with you. Love you guys, Brothers forever. Peace, Love and good health to you always.
