We only had a short time together but the time we did have I will always cherish. With all the stories that were shared by Bo, Pam, Judy, Pete, Hannah and your kids I was able to get a better idea of your character and personality. I am sad my son will never get the chance to meet and know you, but please know that we will tell him about you. I am sure he will find it just as funny as we all did when you would see Sarah “waddling” around and say “quack quack”. Those were the last words you spoke to us and I know Sarah will always cherish them. The day Elliott says “quack quack” we know you will be laughing with us. I know you’re probably tired of our “talks” but I meant everything I said and will do my best to fulfill those promises.
