    I am so sorry to the family for the loss of Casey. He was always such a energetic person and loved playing jokes on people… I wish I was able to know the man Casey grew to be by watching the videos I’ve seen by his sister and sister in law you could tell he enjoyed spending time with his nephews ,so very kind hearted. He will forever be in my thoughts along with his family ❤️
