Your antics and memories are overwhelming. Never an unkind word followed you. These memories are endless. Bill and I have shared so many. You were truly one of a kind. Speaking of kind, your kindness defined only one of your loving qualities. If I had to make a list it would include hilarious, intelligent, fatherly, mischievous, tough, strong, relentless and another brother I am missing. I will always love you forever.
