Dena Martin, on behalf of our family, we truly appreciate you sharing your kind thoughts and memories during this time. Our fathers were best friends, and you, Gary and your Mom were a big part of our lives for as long as I can remember. It’s not often that I think of Mom & Dad and not also think of Jack & Sonja as well. They were so close for many years and always thought of each other as family.
Again, thank you…. Barry

Joyce was one of the sweetest and kindest people I have ever known. In my 62 years, I cannot remember not knowing her. I am sad that she is gone.
In the past 24 hours, my mind has been flooded with wonderful memories. She and "Harold Fred" were very important to me and everyone in my family. I chose them both as Godparents to my first child, 42 years ago.
I hope she is happy...I am sure that she is.
To Barry, Tim, Karen, all of Munner's grands, and the rest of the family...I am so sorry for your loss, and wish for peace for you all.
