There are things in my life that always bring you to my mind, and will stay in my memories. Gardening , breakfast cooking, inviting people out to eat, and a love for college basketball (or just sports), are just a few for me. Im sure there are many others, with many more than that..... Peace to You friend, rest in the arms of Jesus. Joy Eternal.

Carole & Family,
Praying that all of you find God's promises comforting in this time. That your memories too, soon will bring smiles.
Much Love from me & all my family.....

Bill and Ellen, I have so many memories of your Dad. Mostly remember him as a baseball player. He and Charles Witt would get in trouble with Grandmother Witt for playing ball on Sundays! He always has the biggest smile. He and my Mom got along well as in laws, too! Sending love to you and family.
