My heart and prayers to you all. Your mom and dad were two of my favourite people. I spent a lot of time as a kid at your house and remember a lot of good times, from making the twins hid in the back seat so we could cruise the Blvd., to Bob coming on leave and finding me sleeping in his bed( he kind of changed that story as we grew older till your mom told him to stop(lol) Love you all.
