Amazing dad to us kids and an awesome husband to my mom. He was a very quite man but very passionate about his family and loved each and every one of us. He even took care of our silly friends back in the day lol. I love you day!!! Rest in peace and enjoy all the cardinal baseball you can and tell Robert I love and miss him too. I miss both of you more than anything. Love always your 'big boy" Justin.
