  3. Wendy love, my heart is literally broken for you!! I prayed so hard for your family during this time. God apparently needed him more. Rex was a super guy! He was always so happy going. And the love his eyes showed everytime I would inquire about you and the girls was something to see. We love you and you will continue to be in our prayers throughout the coming days.

  4. I’m so sorry for the loss of Rex the husband, Rex the son , Rex the brother, but especially Rex the father. It’s hard as an adult to wrap your head around the death of a husband, brother and son. But for a child to understand when we ourselves can not give them a tangible explanation it’s like a fantasy that they think will change when tomorrow comes.
    All we can do is love the pain to a to bearable level.
