    Tammy, my heart goes out to you and your family at this time of need. It is a blessing that you and your father were able to spend the winter months of his life together. What a wonderful closure for you all. Your father can now rest in peace. He will always be with you, keep his memory alive.

    Love always,

    There’s no need to cry for me,
    Because I now finally see.
    That there is a special place,
    For all of us to be.
    I rode that cancer highway,
    Open throttle all the way.
    Determined to ride cancer free,
    But God had other plans for me.
    So when you smile for me today,
    You know everything will be ok.
    Because my memories will live within you,
    For each & every day.
    Till we meet again… Ride on!

    Poem by Deneen DeLong

    Paul will always be in my heart as he was there for me when I needed him the most.

    To my dear Minnesota family; I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad to know that Paul isn’t suffering any longer. I am thankful that you all got to spend his last days with him. The Lord is with you. I pray that you all will feel His love in a mighty way as He shelters you in His arms. I love each of you so much and will continue to pray for you in the days ahead.
