I always looked up to my cousins Terry and Billy. They were such great roll models for me when I was growing up. I always wanted to be like them.

To such an accomplished man, you were Blessed with a wonderful wife whom I got to know though mutual neighbors. She always spoke highly of your times together while enjoying the wonderful cruises you partook across the world. It is evident that you raised successful children who will surely miss you but no one more than your devoted wife Carolyn. You were Blessed to have each other as many years as you did!
Your neighbor,
