    We’ve known your family for over 20 years. Where has the time gone. From our kids in grade school through spots. Sitting in the stands together and cheering on our kids. And, of course, you can’t forget all the years of taking the kids around for Halloween. Candy for the kids and of course “beverages” for the adults. Susan, Tommy, Jared I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you always.
