Tina and kids,
I am so sorry for your loss. The lord has received a great man. He was a great person who added so much to every life he touched. I will miss his cheese jokes. Then with that smirk after words. It would just crack me up. Words cannot describe the pain y'all must be in. I lost my father at a young age and I am here to tell you that it will soon get easier. I loved to just sit and talk to your father. He would give me some advice in coaching and would help out as much as he could. He loved you kids so much. Tina, if you need anything at all, give me a call. God bless you and your family. Words cannot express the pain I feel with his loss. I love you and the kids. Prayers.
