"To Charles and Sarah, Shelly and all his other family. My prayers are with you all at this time. I remember lots of good times with my sister Janice and my "other husband" (as he used to call himself to me) David. He was always ready to laugh at a funny joke or take a ride in the countryside with us. I wish I could be there with you all, but circumstances don't permit. Please know we love you all and will miss your dad as much as we miss your mom. Love, Aunt Judi and Uncle Tom"
