    One of a kind, wonderful, outgoing personality mixed with just the right touch of a keen sense of humor, Dink and I grew up together in the same neighborhood. I don’t even remember a time that I didn’t know Dink. More recently, we had kept in touch through Facebook…and believe me, he kept us all in stitches with his funny, witty remarks. Riding bikes, backyard baseball games, etc. I’ll always cherish Dink’s friendship and all the childhood memories we forged of a more simpler time. Our hearts go out to his family. We pray that our sweet Lord will bring them comfort and peace.

    Many friends are hurting and grieving with you. We also rejoice that Dink is completely healed and feeling great! I went to school with him at SHS, and he always had a kind word to say to everyone. He kept us all laughing on Facebook and brought so much joy to many people. May the Lord comfort all your family and carry you through the days ahead. It is so hard to lose someone we love but especially at Christmas time. May you sense God’s love and presence in a powerful way.
    In His love,

    DEAR EMMA LISA I CAN STILL SEE YOU DADDY LIGHTING THE CANDLES ON THE MANTLE AT MAMAS HOUSE WHEN KATHY AND TOMMY GOT MARRIED. HE WAS SUCH A SERIOUS BOY THEN I REMEMBER WHEN HE AND SUE GOT MARRIED AND THE HAPPY TIMES WHEN Y ALL WERE BORN. TOMMY WAS PROUD OF HIS LITTLE BROTHER AND THEY SHARED MANY GOOD TIMES.
    I KNOW HE IS AT PEACE NOW. KEEP THE GOOD MEMORIES AND PASS THEM ON TO YOUR CHILDREN.
