Judy, Curt, and Jen, I am with you in prayer as you walk forward without Soup. I have always enjoyed Soup, his humor, his passion, his love for family and making great times together. There are many fond memories of our families get-togethers. He leaves a wonderful legacy of his family and his service to others. The path forward without Soup may look dark, but it does lighten, and at the end, he will be waiting to greet you with a shout and a big hug.
