Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Murdick. I have such fond memories of being at the Murdick home. I was always in awe of the cactus that grew in the sun room, and the huge Christmas trees they had. I remember a birthday party that was held in the backyard for Jason many years ago. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Nikki, you were there for all of us when Mom died, and I thank you for that. I offer our support to you at this time. I have no doubt that our Moms are enjoying each others company again. May God bless you all.

  2. Nikki, I'm so sorry to learn about your mom's passing. The past several months have been very tough for you, I know. Do you remember when your mom took the girl scout troop roller skating and she fell and broke her arm? That was a long time ago. I noticed your daughter's name in the obituary. We've nearly named our daughters the same name. Our daughter, Christine Lynne, lives in San Jose. With sympathy, Sandra Taylor Miller

  3. Nikki, My deepest sympathy to you on the death of your Mother, Irene. So soon after your Dad must really be hard for you. Know that they are at peace and together. Barb

  4. Nikki, Lynn, and Jason: I'm so sorry to hear the news about Irene. I cannot begin to articulate all the emotions, but I'm deeply sorry and I send you all my hugs! Your family holds a special place in my heart and my life. Some of my happiest times are around the dining room table sharing meals and stories with all of you. Having Irene there at your home made my visits with you all so very special and I will miss her. Please be safe in all your travels during this time and know that my deepest sympathies and love is with you all.
