    Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. We can’t even imagine how much you miss him.
    We only saw him once a week when he delivered at our store, but we looked forward to that brief meeting every week. He was not only the best driver we ever had but was an unbelievably awesome guy.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.
