I knew your mom and dad through my work at Associated Bank. I loved listening to them talk about car shows, wood working and your mom loved to watch (and feed) the wildlife and the river go by. I didn't know your family, but I know you were loved by your parents and that's the best memory a child can have. You are in my thoughts. Bless them both.
