Our thoughts and prayers have been with your family this week. It is very difficult to lose those so dear and close to our heart, like a father, spouse, or grandparent. May the peace and love, that our Heavenly Father provides, be a reminder that your loved one has found everlasting and eternal peace.

Well, I have to admit, Heavenly Donuts and Eastside will be quieter without him harrassing me! We would often stand in line at Heavenly Donuts and I would complain about being related to him, and he would shoot right back. He WILL be missed! Take care.
