    They bring smiles to our faces, or tears to our eyes, and sometimes both at the same time. Losing someone is heartbreaking, but we have all been left with a special gift – our memories. They are often the only things we have left after that special person is gone. Though at times they may be painful to think about, with them, our loved ones remain a part of us forever. -Ashley

    David and Mom, My heart is with you in this trying time. I know how it feels to lose your best friend. He was a wonderful man with such a great sense of humor and a man who would give his last penny. A strong man with an unbelievably funny sense of humor. The one time I spent with him at the hospital was all I needed to know that he was one of a kind. A jokester and a kid at heart. Live on through memories and know he’s now your Angel. With the combination of Thomas Sproul and Ignacio Maldonado… God has his work cut out for Him in Heaven :-) Love you guys
