Dear Berenice and Family,

Our condolences in the passing of your husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. Hank and I always enjoyed running into the two of you, Berenice, wherever this might happen. The Co-op was a definite possibility for meeting, so we were pleased to see you there not that long ago and have a catch-up visit. May you all remember the good years. Blessings, Hank and Sharon

Bernice, Charlene, Loretta and families:

Sincerest condolences on the loss of Charles. Our families spent a lot of fun times together with gymkhana, trail rides and other horse related activities. Charles always had a smile on his face, was very easy going and always had a positive outlook on life. He was a great friend to Dad for their entire lives. He will be missed.
