    Remembering so many fun times with you and my Mom. Thinking back to watching the sunset at a special place you liked to go. I have to say that view and spending the day riding lost in that bottom was one of the funniest times with you and my Mom ever. Bless your family they are so nice. You will be missed but you would want life to go on and be happy that you are in heaven. Maybe my mom will take me to see the sunset again God please comfort your kids and family iI will never forget someone who gave us all so much to remember
