Candle lit by Cheryl Brother, you will be missed more than you could possibly know. Love you!

Candle lit by Ka-ron Rick, my cuz you were/are so much more to me than just my cousin. We have had so much loss in our lives and I always believed we would have each other for so much longer. I am more than a little lost without you here and wish for just one more conversation and a big hug. Until we meet again I will keep you close in my heart and thoughts and of course humor. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Candle lit by Piper My best friend.

Candle lit by Scott & Heather Had to pick the green candle just for you (GO DUCKS)!!!! We will miss you each and every day from here on out. We know that you get be with your Mom, Jeff & Chris now but we just wish it didn't have to be so soon. Family functions will never be the same again. We won't be hearing that belly laughter or seeing that sly grin. I know for sure you are making a joke at the belly laughter comment "it's the Valdez way".... I can't thank you enough for being my rock while Scott was deployed and immediately adopting me into the family before we even truly met. You were there for me when my own family wasn't. You are such a special person and we will try to honor you with all we do. We will miss the random phone calls and check-in's & don't worry, I will always take care of your favorite ginger kid. Love you always.

Candle lit by Allison I sure miss you. Life needs more people like you, you were one of a kind. Thanks for being there for me when I really needed it, always without judgement and a funny comment.

Candle lit by ‘Iwalani Uncle Rick you have such a special place in my heart. You loved us like we were always in your life. You called at least twice a month to talk stories. Your love and rascally ways will be carried on in our hearts. You always told me I will always be family. We love you and miss you so much!!!
