    You welcomed us into your heart and home and we were grateful for that. You and my Mom are together again, just the way you wanted it to be. May you embrace the loved ones that went on before you with open arms and a joyful heart. Those you left behind will be comforted by one another.

    We love you and you are missed already. You and I had a special relationship. And I thank you for that. You opened your door to me as well as your love. And I thank you for that. Been alot of laughs through the years. You loved my Mama like no other man has and you always gave her anything she wanted. My heart is breaking but you and mama are together now and I couldn’t be happier. I love you. RIP.
