Crystal, Sheena, Janet and Ralph: My heart goes out to each of you. You now have an angel in the sky who will help guide you and look after you just as he did here on earth. How blessed you were that he and your grandmother were ALWAYS there for you, and that they shared their hearts, love and home with each of you. Although I didn’t get the pleasure of meeting him I know that he and your grandmother are truly very special people. The wonderful memories you have of him will help sustain you through this very difficult time in your lives. Hugs to each of you in this true time of sadness.
