Love by so many. Loved by me. Your Spirit is a beautiful one that soars forever. It has touched so many hearts and has made them filled with joy. My days with you are etched into my heart as some of the most memorable times of my life. One of so many memories...
I will forever remember our little barking catfish at the cottage. Thank you for caring for me and being a good friend to me. You made my life a much more enjoyable experience. Love to you my buddy! Hugs forever... Deanna ❤ ❤ ❤

My thoughts and prayers are with the strong family. I remember when I first met you 26 years ago at leavitt tube, we both just started working there, we bonded and became best of friends pretty quickly, hanging out and stuff.You invited me numerous times to your families cottage and I remember the great times we had together, those are my fondest memories of you because I knew you loved it there so much, good times!!! just wanted to let you know I miss you! Our Cubbies did deliver!
Your union brother
