Make me a promise.....

...that before the sun sets today, you will tell each of your children how much you love them.


Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory, they'll live on in our heart.



Cory Wasmuth
4/3/88 - 12/21/10

Cory is Dan's youngest son and made his home in Colorado. He must have believed that his job here was finished, as he ended his life early Tuesday morning. We'll never know exactly why and that means an endless stream of what-if's for us to deal with.

Cory and I didn't always see eye-to-eye, but there will always be a special place in my heart for this fine young man.
