    It was my honor, my greatest pleasure in life in having knowing you. Chris, I recall so many memories with you, memories of us growing up together from young children and on into adulthood, these. Are all memories I’ll always cherish just like I’ve always cherish you. You Chris may had been a distant cousin of mine, a third cousin I believe is the relation between us, but none the less a relative, a friend I’ve always cherished and loved, someone I’ve always been so proud to of known, be it as a friend or a relative, nonetheless a very special, beautiful woman who’ll I’ll keep in my heart, my soul for the rest of my life. Dear Jacob and Logan, you two wonderful young men may not remember me, but I sure remember meeting both of you at a family reunion, your mother introduced both of you to me with so much love, joy and happiness in her eyes, your mother, I know as a fact really does love both of you, Jacob and Logan. Your mother may be gone physically, but she is still in everyone’s life spiritually. Both of you Logan and Jacob are in my prayers.
