I put my glasses on to see better but the tears keep making it hard to see. We still can’t believe of his passing, he meant so much to our family! He was certainly a great guy and we enjoyed being around him whenever we could be. We always enjoyed hanging out at the lake and were always on the same page. He was always there to lend a helping hand or words of advice. He was well respected and such a great guy. You will always be remembered buddy and never forgot. We will miss you!
