When he shall die take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heav'n so fine.
That all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.

William Shakespeare

The memories of my childhood were that much sweeter knowing this dear family; each and all, showed me great faith in God, and human kindness.

I really enjoyed the photos, it was a life well lived and loved.

Faithfully Yours,
Jeanette and Lee (18 S. Morerick)

Barb & Family - I just found out about Mr. Nick's passing from Louann. I am so sorry for your family. He was a wonderful person, in the past few years I would see him when I was walking and he was always so proud of Nick and Jenna and would fill me in on where they were in life. He will be missed.
