"My life has been blessed, with my beautiful daughters Sharon, and Michelle, I'm so very proud of my two girls, "my Sherbie," and "my belle," my special grandchildren also, Rachael, Jack, Charlie, and Joe, and great granddaughter Hallie, I've loved watching you all grow. What would I do without you all? I truly do not know. Through you all I will live forever, I will never really be gone, I'm part of your very existence, I will live on, and on, and on. But the most wonderful blessing of my life, was sharing the years, with Mary....my precious wife. So when it's my time to eternally rest, it's a lovely feeling to know, That I was ....truly blessed."
