Rest in peace my sweet brother. I know it's been a long and hard road to travel but you have reached your resting place. Wish I could be there but I just lost your favorite brother-in-law, as you use to call him. My loving husband Duane. This has been a sad week for me but yet comforting to know both are with our Lord and Savior. Will miss you both.
