My sincere condolences to Beth, Kevin and Rachel. The best neighbors in the world. When my husband Doc died 12 years ago, Brian and Beth took over taking care of me. I would tell Beth to stop him and she'd say, ' Oh, he wants to do it'. I cannot enumerate how many great things he did for me, without asking! I will miss sorely miss him but know that Brian and Doc will continue to watch over Beth and I going forward. Thank you for your service to our country and to me. Rest in Peace, no longer in pain.
"Hello there, young lady", his greeting to me every time he came out the back door. I'll think of you every time I look around the house and remember all you have done.
