Well Sugarman, What a ride. So many good memories with you. Vacations, fish fries,, many (many) family get-togethers. We did have fun.
I will share one memory I'll never forget-our car trip from Texas to Florida to Tennessee. Driving up a very narrow mountain road
with you at the wheel and a map spread across the steering wheel! Only you would drive and read a map on a mountain road!
You were the love of Jackie's life and the two of you gave us Jeff and Jennifer. Good job.
We love you and will remember the good times-always.

Well Sugarman-what a ride. So many great memories with you-vacations, fish fries, many, many family gatherings. We did have fun. One memory I'll never forget, our car trip from Texas to Florida to Tennessee. Driving up the mountain on the narrowest of roads, you at the wheel and a large map spread across the steering wheel. Who drives up a mountain reading a map?
You were the love of Jackie's life, you gave us Jeff and Jennifer...GOOD JOB.
We love you and please tell Jackie I miss her everyday.
