Sending condolences to the Livingston Family and Friends. Mr. Livingston was always so friendly and fun and always helping others and not wanting any recognition for that. He would come in each Friday and pick up Tiff and they would go get lunch or do something fun. All of Friday Tiff would say "is my Dad coming" and he did every Friday Tiffany wanted him too which was always. He would take a group of Tiff's friends to the Apple Orchard each year and other special kindnesses through out the year. Such a wonderful, kind and caring person. His visits will truly be missed by many. Hope he and Alice are having fun now that they are together. Much love sent to all of you-Jenny K.

Noel, Travis, Mya, Maleah, Keiko and Zeke, I’m so sorry for the loss of your grandfather. I wish I could take away your heartfelt pain. I read something the other day that stuck with me, “Death leaves a heartache no can heal, but love leaves a Memory that no one can steal.” Whatever this day may hold, remember you aren’t walking into it alone. Hold on to your beautiful memories made with your grandpa and reflect on them often. It’s the beautiful memories that get us through our hardest times. That and our precious Lord. “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31: 8 Sending you love, hugs and ongoing prayers. Love, Mama J
