A very fine man who built the kitchen cabinets in our new home in 1959 and they have never had to be repaired. He was so talented and respected by all who knew him. May he rest in everlasting peace.

Ann, we are sorry for your loss. But we are well aware that he is so much better off being with the Lord. The only regret we have is that we didn't know him longer. But we will hold to the memory he left us with. Keep the faith and we are here for you.
