Mrs. ALford, Craig and Cheryl ... so sorry for your loss. I didn't know you all very well but was saddened none the less when I heard of your husband/dad's passing. May God comfort and keep you safe until you meet again.

My dear Mrs Alford, Craig and Cheryl,
I'm so sorry to hear about your Daddy.
I have so many fond memories of him and all of us from my childhood. I probably spent as much time at your house as I did at my own growing up. So many hours we spent swimming at the lake. So much fun watching the Dawgs play and your Momma cooking for us all. Precious times I'll never forget. I haven't seen you in so many years, but I think of you often and I want you all to know that I love you and you're in my prayers. God Bless Mr Alford. May your soul rest in peace in the arms of our Holy Father...

Dear Mrs. Alford, Cheryl and Craig, I grew up in Killarny Shores. I was Mrs. Drane's Granddaughter and lived four houses up from you. I was so sad to hear the passing of your Husband/Dad. I have fond memories of him and my prayers are with you and your family. May God comfort you and Bless you.

Dear Helen, Craig, Cheryl and family,

We are so sorry to hear that Forrest had passed away yesterday.

He was always such a kind, gentle and caring person particularly toward his family.

I will always remember my visits to Hartwell with Grandma (Emma) and also with Forrest's family even though they were few.

Our thoughts and prayers will be with you!

With love and memories,

Doug, Regina and Emily Alford
