    Betty, Dustin and Shena
    First thing is I hope Shena is the right way to spell it. But I want you to know I loved your dad as much as you could love a uncle. Technically he is My wonderful wife Tricia’s uncle but I looked at him as mine. I feel like we had a bit of something special as and outsider, but never the less I love that guy! Fortunately I am blessed to have a lot of awesome memory hanging out with him. fishing, hunting stories, even giving each other shit. Lots of fun! I am very sad and just as heart broke as you. I hope that with all your heart break you will be able to reach out to all of us that care about you. And cherish the fact you have a family that will do anything to get you through these hard times.
    John O!
