Grandpa, we will miss you and grandma both. I know you both together again and smiling down upon us. You will always be with me and can't wait to be reunited again.

Georgia: I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. In fact, I missed your mom's and "Teddy's" as well and don't see how that happened. Teddy was the moral compass for us. Faith Lutheran was really the best time of my life and your family helped make that possible. I still remember your mom and dad in the same seats all the time in Fellowship Hall after the services. I so missed seeing you all. Hugs as well.

I'm so sorry to read of George's passing. He was the first journeyman machinist assigned to work with me. He couldn't have been more kind & instructional, teaching me to love the work I was learning. I've always held him in highest regards because of that.
May God bless your family during this difficult time.

George and his wife, Dorothy, were very nice neighbors. They lived 2nd door from us on Taylor Ave. many years ago. Bob and I send our condolences to the family.

Betty, I am so sorry for the loss of your parents. I wasn't aware your mom had passed away too. From working with you, I know they were wonderful people. Jesse, my husband, passed away on February 23, 2012 from liver cancer. This has really been an adjustment because we had our 45th wedding anniversary on January 21, 2012. My parents have both passed away so I definitely can feel your loss. If you need a shoulder, I am here.
Hugs. Sharon Smith
