April 27, 1988 - September 5, 2007 Some days feel like yesterday, and other days...it seems like forever. We miss you, love you, and are so very proud of you. The tears are endless, just like the many memories that we all share of you. No one can ever take that from us, for you are always in our prayers, hearts, thoughts, and dreams. May God bless your sweet soul. Love, Mom, Larry, Grant, Quinn, and a grateful nation. We thank you for defending freedom. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9
