Shocking. I wish I could be there to hold everyone of his family. He was a fun loving, sarcastic(but in a funny way). He would go out of his way to help you with anything. Miss our mornings at 4 of a Kind. RIP Ticket you surely will be missed by all. Say hey to Tim when you see him ok. Thanks buddy.
