Vicki and family,
Oh how we will miss that man! He was an honest, straight-talking,
pull-no-punches kind of guy. The Lord did not make many like him. He was always willing to do what he could to help family and neighbors, and with a great sense of humor. He was special not just to you, but to all of us. We wish you peace and God's comfort in your loss. Oh how we will miss that man!
