In closing, I would like to say to our mom, grandmother, Aunt Juddy, Aunt Grace, and Darrell, keep popping them tops. I know y’all are finally together and having the time of y’alls lives.  We all will miss you; I know we never said we love each other much, it’s too late to say it now, but I hope you know we did. – Sean and Randall
