I am so, so sorry! My heart, thoughts & prayers are with each of you. Mr. Hess, or as I called him many years ago, Dad...was one of kindest men I had ever met. Him & Mom accepted me into the family with open arms. If it hadn't of been for them & all of you that were so kind to me...some days I don't know what I would have done. I have wonderful, beautiful memories from my teenage years that I will always cherish. If there is anything you need, please let me know.
