Memories

I am so sorry to hear of this news, I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Jennifer, and her family. I will always remember the Dusek's coach and fan that was totally uncontrolable when it came to our slow pitch softball games. I am truly sorry for your loss, and I am sitting here typing remembering a time that we thought would never end.... our childhood. I will forever cherish those memories, because, we all came together for a game. We were all one, and by gosh did we have fun. I am sorry I missed the events, but please know that you are all in my prayers, and please know that Tom was important in the meaning of FUN---he was an awesome coach, and he always had a smile. Jen, I know it has been years since we spoke, but please know that I am thinking of you and your family, and that you are all in my prayers.
