    I’m not sure what to say in the face of such a difficult loss. I’m deeply sorry your family is experiencing the pain of a loss like this. My heart goes out to each of you.

    Me and Dell used to do a lot together! We drive the strip on East Lincoln Highway on a Friday night and hang out all night at around the clock just drinking coffee conversating with friends. He took me under his wing when I was younger and bought me all sorts of stuff from the gas station right up the road. I’ll never forget the times we had or the laughter we shared! I love and miss you Uncle, we will see each other again!
