Scott, Toni, Kip and your families,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She certainly was a good friend to my parents. I have fond memories of her Italian cooking and get-togethers at your house. She was always sweet to us. She sure played along with your dad's jokes! You sure have had a rough month... thinking of you all! Lisa Bindley Colver

So sorry for your loss, I am so glad I got to see them both at Harrison Crossings a few months ago. I have such fond memories of bowling and having fun with them at the Elks, they were such fun. I would love to come say goodbye but I have lung problems and I am "staying at home". My thoughts and prayers will be with you. You took such good care of Chris and Don. God bless you.

I’m more than sad to know the loss of my dear friend Chris. I did not get a chance to take care of her but I did take care of her late husband Don(papa) . I got to know her more while I was taking care of her late husband and she was the most kindness and loving woman I ever met. She didn’t know me but I felt her love for me when I would give her a hug. She made me feel good while I made her feel good with that hug. You’re gonna be missed Chris but always in my heart. REST IN HEAVEN with your Don, I know you guys are happy together🙏🏽🕊💛😍
