I offer my heartfelt condolences to Linda, Sherry, Richie, Traci, and all of the family during such a difficult time. I also offer the following:
Today is full of memories
of a brother laid to rest
and every single one of these memories is filled with happiness.
You were someone very special,
always such a joy to know, all the personal sharing we had was heartfelt, and I know there was so much pain when it was time for everyone to let you go.
That’s why this special message
is sent to heaven above, for the angels to take care of you and give you all my love and the love from so many.
Your love of music and song, all the help you gave to others, being a great husband and dad, being a great friend, will remain in the hearts of so many and will always be cherished.
Love You Brother, and will always have you in my heart.
I’m so sorry about his passing . He and your family are in my thoughts and prayers I pray for comfort and peace in your time of loss and grieving. He was loved by many and will missed greatly. Big Hug to all love Wendy
