The sad note of this,his funeral was held on my sister Glenda's 10th birthday, So he is remembered every year on May 3rd. Cause of death water around the heart. Very ironic for someone who had the largest heart a person could have. We will love him untill we can be with him again.A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO NAY FOR SPONSORING MY HERO.
