My mom and dad were two very amazing people. They worked very hard to raise us eight children. They had two sets of twins, Jenny and Gene and Paul and Pauline the four babies like 12 days being a year apart. I can only imagine the pain and heartaches that we put these two great people through. Looking back, there is no way any of us children could ever repay them for the love and support that they gave us. Our dad was a veteran, he had this huge scar on his neck from when he was in the service he stepped on an active land mind that blew up. We are all very proud of the parents we have. Mom and Dad we send you all of our love.
If you have a few minutes please go by and leave a flower for my wife and daughter's.
