Being such a large family, it's such a personal loss, to so many in each and every life, who knew him in their own personal way. Father, brother, grandfather, and friend. I only knew him for a short time, but liked the man from the first time we met. Sorry he had to leave us at such a early age. My prayers are with you all.
