We will miss you little brother. It has bee a long time since me and Vic were allowed to help Mom feed you with a bottle.
We felt privileged that we could do that.
You talked often of your kids,grand kids,great grand kids, and great- great grand kids.
I know that you enjoyed them and were proud of them. I am glad that you had a chance to know all of them.
They will miss you a lot.
Alan was my brother-in-law and my husband Richard R. Stewart
made many trips together until my sister, Ruth Ann died at 58.
Then I visited him many times. My thoughts and prayers are with
Kelly and family and we will see him again.
