    From day one he treated me like a dad, He was there for me no matter when I needed him. Even if he was on the Road He made sure I knew he was only a phone call away. He helped me out in so many ways when I had a lot on my plate and I needed advice and help with situations That happened. I am glad to say I can call him dad as he was really a standup one at that. God bless you dad and thank you for everything you brought to my life. Thank you for also giving my mom everything you had, you really knew how to keep her happy and loving life. You will be missed in more ways than I can even imagine writing. One day I will see you up there myself partner. So dad When you see me come over and say hi up there. As I promised you I will make sure I look after my mom forever.

    My prayers to Pam and Al’s family. She loved him and never left his side. They were a blessed couple to have shared such a deep love for each other. They had a lot of fun times together and my prayers are that in time, the grief will soften and the loved ones remember the happy times.
