As tears roll down my face, I know you're in a better place. An Angel whispered, "Take my hand and come with me; Your watch is over and you stood tall and now it's someone else turn". You always knew just what to say to anyone having a bad day. You made us laugh and laugh and you made us cry but you never left our sides; as your loving wife, Gwen and Zoe (k-9) stayed fast by your side. Greatly missed by your brother Tim and wife Amy, sister JoAnn and our Ron. They would have carried your load had you just decided to share but you carried it all and stood tall. I don't know if I will ever understand, but it must be part of God's plan. Your Mom the proudest of them all to be blessed with you as her son. Be sure to give your Mom a sign so she knows you are in Heaven and everything is fine. Tell everyone there we send our love. You won't be forgotten for your life mattered, now you march along behind God and beside Your Dad, Rodge and Nita. Carry On Marine. Simper Fi Cousin Mary C. and Clyde
