Bub, Lonnie, Lori and family, I have always loved your Dad. He has always been my UnCle Loren even though he and your Mom weren't married anymore. He always treated me like family and always smiled and gave me a hug. I won't be able to get off work to be there for the visitation and service, but please know I am there in spirit. My heart goes out to you all and I love you all. He will most definitely be missed.
