    My memories are only when you was a little guy, such a pretty baby. I use to babysit with the four of you while you mom was at work. I use to get you-all together and we would walk up to hospital, so we could walk your mom home. You had a stubborn streak. You were your mom's boy. I kind of lost track of you all after you all moved to California. But though of all of you thought's go out to your family. Aunt Betty and Uncle Bert.

  • Cindie Day-Toovey

    I have been thinking about the days when we were all younger, the fights, the games, running through the house while Raggs chased us. Jumping on beds and on to the couch (don't tell mom). I also remember you being the appointed spokes person for the 4 kids since you were the youngest. Whenever we wanted ice cream or go to a part, you were sent in to ask. Seldom were you told no. I am going to remember you with the horses, donkeys and the look on your face when you looked at your family. It was nothing but pure love. Love always, Cindie
