So, so sorry to hear. Mr. Voitus gave the BEST hugs, and always called me his little girl, which I remember so fondly. I also remember shared family vacations with Burger girls and Voitus boys, and I felt like an honorary Voitus. :) To me, he’ll always be a big teddy bear, generous with his love. Peace to all who will miss him. - Sharon
