We were very honored to have “Mr. B’ as our neighbor for 22 years. He was the best at everything he did (husband, dad, grandfather, landscaper and friend). He was a great role model and will surely be missed. I can hear that great chuckle of his when I recall our many conversations over the fence. God has gained an angel and I know Mr. B is waiting for us to meet again in heaven.
