You will be missed my brother from another mother. I have know you for a very long time and one of my best friends I have had in my life. You and I have had some great times together hunting deer and groundhogs. I am going to miss you at pool which we have been shooting together for many many years. I am going to miss just sitting at the house drinking coffee and shooting the breeze. I hope you are seeing lots of groundhogs in the fields up there and getting the biggest buck you have ever seen. I know you are up there hunting with my Dad and Brothers!

Love and miss you Bro!!

Hey pops! Just wanna let you know I love you and miss you like crazy, but I promise to look out for the family because I know that is what you would want, I know you are watching over all of us. Its hard to accept that you're gone, so I wont! It will be like we went for awhile without seeing each other, but i can understand why God would have wanted you close to him, because you truly were an angel on Earth....... Until we meet again lOVE YOU
