Dear Sherrie, Ashley, Brandie and Family,

I am truly saddened by hearing about the loss of such a wonderful man. I still remember the summers when I was welcomed into your home to be a part of your family. Your dad always treated be will love and kindness that knew no ends. He used aloe Vera to help heal a burn from a motorcycle ride and took me hunting on a pheasant hunt were I got my one and only game animal. He had the power to brighten the saddest of days and showed resilience when things got tough. We will all miss this amazing man.

Love always, Jessy
