A candle has been lit!

I have to add the memories of my oldest son, Bret. "he was a memorable personality! I can't eat a fat hamburger without seeing him over a bar-b-que telling me that I'll love his "Irish" burgers. I learned to water ski behind his orange, tri hull boat. He was very patient trying over and over until I got up. He was always funny and kind to us kids.
