Dawn and family, I am truly praying that the comfort of our Lord will surround all of you as you celebrate your dad's life and mourn his passing. What a legacy he has created to live on in all of you. Take comfort in each other and knowing that he is in the presence of our precious Lord where he can forever watch over all of you. Big hugs and prayers to you and all your family!

He would call me at work just to say he wanted to hear my voice. Always told me to stay safe down there, like Arizona was in the jungle or something. He would leave me voicemails saying he just wanted to say hi. I saved every one of them. Thank God I did. He was always bragging about his girls and grands. So very proud of them. I know he always loved me and he knew I love him. That will never be taken away from me. His live was a sure thing in my life, when I was going through hell, he guided me out of it, just like a big brother is supposed to do.

I expect to see him again, this isn’t the end, just a different page.

I will love you forever, Bro.
