CRESPIN, RUDY JOSEPH JUDE 11 years ago today we heard you take your last breath. Mom, Dad, and me held you tight and and prayed to God to give us the strength to carry on. For ten long years we have thought of you daily and have carried on with our memories of you and the times we shared. Your generous heart stopped beating, our life of the party is gone, we miss you more with each passing season and wonder what could have been. Our hope and prayers are that God has promised we will meet again. So for now knowing we have an angel in the sky and the memories and our love for you, will carry us through. We love and miss you so very much.
