    Hej Brosan,
    I have to confess of all my brothers you were defanently one of them.
    As we ponder our time with you and the fond memories we shared, I thank our Sweet Heavenly Father for allowing me to be your kid brother and our wonderful parents who raised us in a home of love and faith. Allowed us to follow our hearts and desires without any judgement of us.
    Dear Ronie. I know as the veil was parted you we embraced by mom and pop with mom simply saying nej men vad gör du här?
    We will miss you. We will be sad, but for a short while because as our faith in the Saviors love and sacrifice we too shall embrace and share new memories.
    All our love Dan Jenny and Family.
    PS. Thanks for the Fairlane
