Paw Paw, you will be missed by so many people, me especially.
Anything I needed- you came right over to help or talk me through it without any questions. I was never much of a farmer, but I appreciated all the values you showed me along the way. Since I was born you have been by my side and never let me down. Now I would like to pass along the favor by taking care of Maw Maw and helping her with anything and everything she needs. I love you and you will be dearly missed.

Mr. Anderson was known in our community as someone that would help his friends and neighbors. He was always willing to help my dad (Harry Cline) when he called. It seemed as if he could handle any problem we needed assistance with.
I remember his kindness and I know he will be missed.

Mary Jane, I am so sorry to learn of Johnny's passing. He was simply one of the nicest men I have ever known. It has been a privilege to know both of you for over 50 years. God bless you and keep you.
