I have no idea where to start, sometimes in life a young man is fortunate enough not to have just one dad but to have two dads! Today I lost that second dad. I will cherish all the things I learned from him, I will carry him in my heart as I move forward in life, as I have since I came to know him. I truly have a lifetime of memories of him, Mrs B (my 2nd mom)and his children that I grew up with to look back on and comfort me. Mrs B, Robert, Chuck, Beth Ann know that I love you and your families and that you are in my thoughts and prayers ! Michael
