So many memories I have of you from the time you were a young kid and became a part of our lives. Things may not have worked for your mom and my brother but YOU were always a part of my family. You overcame so many things in your short life. You were the light in your mom's world. I have been looking back at pictures and our days spent on the Middle Fork River and the big farm house that helped shape us all. You were a wonderful father to all your kids, a provider and husband, son and a nephew. I am so glad I had the opportunity to spend some time with you in these last few weeks. I know you were so sick when we were with you, but you put on a brave face for us. You will live on in all our memories. Sending lots of love and prayers to you ALL. Aunt Trish, Uncle Ray, Memaw Lantz, Danny, Phillip, Raetta and Mary.
