Add My Condolences

Karla, I just saw his notice today as we have moved from the area. I’m so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. He always had a special funny way about him that made me laugh. He consistently talked about his grandson and snowmobiling and his eyes were always alight with love as he spoke. My heart breaks for you all.
