Big Brother, I miss the Sunday morning visits to Mom and all the memories encased in jovial stories. You are with her now and other family that preceded your arrival. Hug them all and be sure to save me a seat at that table.

Sasha, You were his pride and joy. Though he curled his lip and was stern with you. You were his girl. My favorite memories are his gardening days and those softball sized tomatoes. Biscuits and tomato gravy was an enjoyable meal. Love you babygirl!! Joe you were loved and will be missed dearly.
