    You were our brother-in-law for over 20 years and you never failed to bring a smile or a laugh to share. You were a good husband to my sister Lynne, a precious dad to my neices and nephew along with Papaw… to your grandkids! We will always remember you fondly and be sure to take care of Lynne and the family that you loved for 23 years. You are playing with the choir of angels.
