So sorry to hear of your loss. I can remember the good times at Automatic Temperature Control. Your folks were always so good to call Mother at Christmas time. The last time I enjoyed their company I had taken Mother (Martha Shrimpton) and Peggy Alber to meet them for lunch at Ameristar. Good memories. Judy Shrimpton Carlson

So sorry about the loss of your your father Ron. I didn't know him, but after being you & Kelly's neighbor for ten years, he must have made quite an impression on those around him. He sure did a fine job of raising his sons! God Bless you and you family at this time of sorrow. Jacque, Douglas & Sarah Siers
