I remember you gut laughing with my parents; I remember seeing the Daytona 500 with you as a child; I remember Dad and you sending stuffed animals on vacation through the mail. Mostly, I remember you walking around Pennville Custom Cabinetry and being proud of the seed you planted. You leave a great legacy and huge shoes to fill.
