I know you are looking down on us with your beautiful & calming smile. It is a comfort knowing you have your Dad & big Sister looking out for you. I know you will be playing your bass in the big band forever . I will always miss & love you with my whole heart .


To my baby cousin I have so many wonderful memories of growning up together. I know you will be looking down on me and my son as our guardian angel. I know you are not alone you are with your Dad and sisters. I will love you always and forever.


I remember the time Keirsten, Josh and I were wrestling and broke mom’s curio cabinet. I will also miss all the times Josh and Patrick would listen to heavy/viking metal and make crazy sounds and faces! You will be dearly missed and forever loved uncle Josh!
