ADD A MEMORY
Carolyn Simpson

April 16, 2021

We are blessed having them in our lives. Enjoyed being friends and neighbors . So easy to just wave "Hello" or quick walk across the yard to hear recent gossip around town.
When ever I would bake or cooked something he liked, he would have a big smile for me. He would say " Save it for my coffee in the morning".
He always had kind words to share with a big smile.
He will truly be missed.

Deepest sympathy and condolence to the family.
May God bless this family during this time of mourning.
