    Buddy you will be missed greatly. In this family we don’t tend to throw away the ex’s we seem to keep them. As we did with you. Never thought of you as an ex brother-in-law, you were still brother-in-law. Rest In Peace until we meet in Heaven. Prayers for the family; daughters and sisters and grandchildren. You will al be in my thoughts and prayers.
