    My prayers are with you all through this difficult time. Hold your memories close to your heart as he’ll never be forgotten.
    I’ll always remember the summer vacations our families all went on together. We put a lot of miles on the roads from the U.P. to way down south and had a whole lot of fun doing it. Fun times and amazing memories.
    God bless

    My heart goes out to my Uncle Theodore’s family. I was very sad to hear of his passing. He was one of my favorite Uncles. I remember him visiting his brother, my dad, Melvin many times. He will be missed.
