Thank you everyone for writing to my dad he was a very good man and we all miss him very much. His has 5 grandson who he has never seen and my son Jordon Ray Young was blessed to born on his birthday July 29, 2008. My father would be very happy to see how much he has been missed there is not a day goes by that we do not miss to see his face. I wake up every morning to see my son Justin Ray Young who is almost 4 and born July 22, 2005. Look exactly like his grandfather. It was almost as if my father had come back when I looked into my sons eyes I felt my fathers spirt. My son act and look like his grandfather. God is good......

Cause of Death:Pancreatic Cancer

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance,
I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say, you know I might have changed it all

And now I'm glad, I'm glad didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Yes, my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd have had
To miss of the dance.

Thank You for the beautiful dance,
And the beautiful letters right before your death.I have kept them and cherished them all these years,(as well as your other letters) and I always knew you loved me.We just met at the wrong time, but as you said something beautiful came out of it.We will see each other again one day with all our loved ones.

~~~A special Thank You to Kimberly Spinelli Young and "Aunt Patti" for sharing all the pictures with me for this sight.~~~
