When my cousin 1st started w the company he covered the 4 state area and would stay w me when working in Springfield MO. We always had a blast. He was my favorite cousin. He helped me thru my Mothers passing w his comforting way that I'm sure everyone who knows and loved him has experienced. When my voyage to heaven comes I will take great comfort in knowing he is on my team of Angels. RIP cousin!
