My heart breaks for Jessica, Donna, Andy, Loren, and Kraine’s extended family. My earliest memory of Kraine is one of he & Dane together in town on their bikes (we were young). They always seemed more like brothers than cousins to me. Kraine was very obviously loved by all of his cousins, his wife, and entire family. Praying for peace & comfort for all of you through this time and for years to come. So sorry for your loss.
