  • Lori, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know he is with mom now – they were so close. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood visits on the farm and later as an adult. I’ll miss his beaming smile. He loved his family, even his southern (yankee transplanted) niece. I loved him so and will miss his playful, fun loving nature and his bear hugs. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for the family he loved. May God surround you with his love, his grace and his peace. – Cheryl
