Memories & Candles
I don't think I had a dry eye once while reading through all the special memories. I can see he was one truly special guy. I never new him personally but I can see how special he was to everyone. To Jennifer and family, I will be thinking of you and I am always here when you want to talk. My deepest sympathy.

Our family connection started with the boys and baseball. How fortunate we all were to share such good times. I (amy) will never forget that deep voice shouting out to "Dude" or "Bubba". To me, he was a great example of a man...strong, caring, giving, warm smile, headstrong :), loved his family beyond words. I was honored to have shared just a small portion of a great life. May his memory go on forever in his children and grandchildren! You are all on both of our minds and in our hearts.
