You will be so missed. I can still see you peeking around things, trying to get Kasey to smile while we were at the campground. You were such a great help around the campground. Thinking of you Debbie

Mandie and family... I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. He was taken much too soon but will continue to live on in all of you as you continue to live his legacy and he watches over you from above. I never got to meet him in person - but I know from how he raised you to be the amazing and strong person that you are - that he had to be an incredible man. He will always be your super hero and he will always be with you in your heart!! Hugs my friend!!
