Auntie Mim and Kevin, thinking about you and the rest of your family today. What I wouldn’t do to be able to be there to give you both big hugs and to say goodbye to Uncle Ronnie. I’ve been thinking about all the good/crazy times we had together and those are memories I will cherish forever.
Lots of Love,
Shondra (Shotsie), Radley, and Brayden xoxo
