You shipped out right before I was born and died not four months later... I never had the chance to know you but was told that you were a good man. Unfortunately there is one less of those in a world where there is not enough of them. Just know you are thought of and talked about with love and God Bless...

Oh and by the way ... THANK YOU!!!
