Becky, I am so sorry to hear of your brother's passing. I remember you introducing me to him at your mom's calling hours and how proud you were of him. We talked for a few moments. Uncle Owen told me he had had some challenges and difficulties, and for that I am sorry too. May God comfort you with His grace and bless you for your loyal and kind care for him. I remember the happy times we had hunting for crawdads at your grandma Ruth's creek as children. With love, Lou (VanWinkle) Baker
