Aunt Mary, Jenny and Family~
We can’t begin to tell you how sorry we are about Uncle Dave. Even though it wasn’t under the best circumstances, we were happy to spend time with you both during my Dad’s illness/death. Uncle Dave was like a second Dad to me…And, Heather and Brett thought of him as a Grandpa. They both enjoyed hearing his stories and spending time with him.
I am sure my Dad welcomed him up in Heaven with open arms and he probably told him that he owed him money. We had a lot of thunder storms lately…I do believe they already joined a bowling league. Sounds like they’ve had quite a few strikes.
You are in our Thoughts and Prayers.
Love,
Caryl, Kim, Chuck, Heather, Matt, Brett and Ali
