Claudia and Manuel,
I was sad to hear about the loss of your dad and also relieved that he no longer has to suffer. May he rest in peace. It is so hard to loose someone especially family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your cousin Marion

Claudia and Manuel, my heart goes out to you. The best thing God gives us besides salvation is faith and memories. Cherish the memories and have faith that you will see your Dad in the future in a much happier place. Lots of Love, Jill

Karl, Siggy, and my late husband Earl sure had a great time together. Anything with with a motor could get them in trouble!! He sure loved his dog and was a great note writer when he could no longer talk. He is not out of all that pain. Susie Roberts
