and in every role there are special memories of love and laughs:

Sunday visits with McDonald's Breakfast in hand for his “girls”, Sitting

on his front porch talking to people headed to the beach or meeting

up with friends, this year round “shorts” wearing man will forever be

remembered and loved.
