Dear Colleen, Roxanne & Larry, Sherry & John,
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. Didn't see it in the Early Bird until Sunday. I wish I had known. I would have loved to see all of you again and be able to remember all the spin the bottle tales we had at your house in Stillvideo. Roxanne, your Mom & Dad always opened their house to all us kids. He will be sadly missed.
Love to all,
Pam & Dick Rhoades

We've lost the physical body of a great person but will never lose the wonderful memories that he brought into our lives. That crooked little smile will be truly missed but I know in my heart he will always watch over us until we meet again. Roxanne, Sherry, Billy and Johnny I wish there was some way I could lessen the pain that I know you are feeling right now, but I know he is in a much better place now and all of his pain and suffering is gone. Colleen I know you will miss him so very much but hopefully all the wonderful memories will help ease the pain somewhat. Love you all you are in my thoughts and prayers always.
