We laughed. We laughed A LOT. We called each other names and teased mercilessly all in the name of good fun. His family was everything to him and Linda was the love of his life and his rock. He lived a great life and showed all those around him what hard work and the rewards of it, were.
Enjoy your vodka cocktail with the tinge of cranberry. We'll remember you with laughter.
