"We’ve shared our lives these many years.
You’ve held My hand; you’ve held my heart.
So many blessings, so few tears
Yet for a moment, we must part.

The memories you’ve given me are times I’ve shared with
my best friend I’ll hold them, Love.
Right here they’ll be until we share our lives again."

Skupiewski Family, Our deepest condolences during this time. Doug always put a smile on our face. Although Adam only met him once, he immediately told me "that man is a good guy." He will be sorely missed but his memories and good nature will always live on.
