Great memories of going to your house Pam we had so much fun I'll never forget when The Lottery started you and I went back to your house and your mom and dad had just bought a few tickets they were like little kids showing us their winning tickets they headed out to buy more and I think we headed to a football game! I'm sorry for his passing but so glad you and Trixi had such a great life with him he loved you so much you could see it in his face every time you came into town and posted pics with him! Loved your mom and dad
