We had our share of laughs together and you were always a good sport when the jokes were at your expense. Such as busting through the folding chair at Spring River and you had to wait for us to help up until we got a pic of you stuck in the broken chair lol. Now it is your time to rest but know your presence will be missed.
Sorry for the loss of your father. May he rest in peace.
