This has taken me way too long to thank all of you....Each and every one of you! Allrecipes Gals and Guys have mentored me thru all this....without you all, I COULD NOT have survived. Marley and Me are doing okay.... It's just now 10 weeks since we lost Danny.
I'm starting to figure out the financials, the insurances, the house stuff , the car stuff....I miss his snoring!
I thank you all for the donations for the memorial bench and the beautiful Maple tree in his small town of 900 pop. in Ashley, North Dakota....you can't even imagine what it means, not only to our family, but to the town.The Lepp family were farmers for
many years until they moved to town but that is how Danny got into the Quarry and Rock business. He knew heavy equipment, parts, and how to fix them when he was younger....He drove a tractor on the farm at 8 years old and driver's license at 13. He grew up
fast.....was pregnant and married at 16,baby born at 17, worked as a Meat Cutter at the grocery store until he graduated Ashley High School in 1976.. I am a proud step mom of a gorgeous 35 year old with a smile just like his Dad's! Danny finished college in
Texas in 1980 from East Texas State (now Texas A&M) and found his way to Florida.....this is where I come in! I was 28, he was 25...taller, smarter,calmer than I was! Such a catch! And such a nice guy....teddy bear....sweet sweet man! We never fought, argued
( well not much!) it was US against the WORLD for 26 1/2 years! Super great marriage to my Best friend...We worked hard, played hard, loved a bunch....I will miss him forever...he is saving me a place in Heaven.
Thank you especially to Carrie, Baking Nana, Lady Sparkle, and our Redneckgramma....for doing all that you have done without me knowing and keeping his spirit alive! I cannot thank you all enough!
Sending everyone a KENTUCKY (((((BEAR HUG)))))) and Marley KISSES!
Love you all and thanks so much,
Danny and Cindy Lepp
