We miss you a lot

Drew, we hardly knew you … yet we mourn your loss with so many others.

In the short year since we moved here, you have been one of the people who validated that decision. Your cheerfulness and thoughtfulness was much appreciated by these two newcomers. If our trash can was empty at the top of the drive, you brought it to the house. If the driveway was slick with snow, you hoofed the package to the door. You always had a smile for us at the house or on the street.
