You all have my deepest sympathy and prayers and remember he is in a good place and yu will be together again. Love to hear from Angie I am here for you. 425-6824 373-2147
I have been trying to find the words to express what I feel for you, Lacey Dawn. so instead, I’ve chosen to say this; I love you, Ty, Malena and John with every fiber of my being. You are my sister and I am never going to stop loving and caring for you all. I am here. Always and forever! All my love.
John will be missed so very much. He came into our family and immediately became someone very special and dear to all of us. He will always be in our hearts and the tears that we cry are from a great love that we all have and always will have for him. Lacey, we Love You Sweetheart and you know that we will always be here for you, Ty & Malena if you ever need anything at all. Love, Hugs & Kisses from Uncle Larry & Aunt Kathy…..
