    I’ve come to this page twice trying to think of what to say. I don’t know what happened an honestly I don’t want to know. But what I do know is that you didn’t deserve it. I’ll miss that big smile you always had that made your eyes chinky as if you were Chinese. Smh I wish we would have conversed the last time I saw you makes me sad to know that that would be the last time I would see you living, breathing and smiling. They say not to question gods work but I would give anything to know why you? We had a different type of bond that only you and I would understand. You will truly be missed but never forgotten!! Til we meet again my friend

    Penny and Redd know that my prayers are with you and your entire family. May you continue to find some inner peace in The Redeemer. He seems like a gentle giant who loved his sports, music and had a contagious smile. This is aka: Peaches
