Frog, I was truly Blessed to have you in my family's life's. We have so many memories together that I could never count them. One of my favorite memories with you was when me, you , Jeff and Holly went fishing and instead of driving the boat on the water we decided to drive it on a rock ( I will never forget your laugh that day and your laugh Everytime that we talked about it). You will forever be missed
