Memories Timeline


  1. James: I am so sorry to hear about your Grandpa. I remember waiting on him when I worked at the bank. You and your family have my sympathy.

  2. Velma, so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. You and your family are in my prayers. I remember your dad from working at the State with him.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about Jay's passing. He was a patient of mine when I worked for Reiter chiropractic. He was always such a kind, soft-spoken man and I looked forward to his visit every week. The world is a less pleasant place without him in it. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, most especially Lydia & Al.

  4. We send our sympathy, prayers & cares to Mr. Cooks family. He was a nice man & a pleasant person to talk to. Jim & Dana Wampler (We are the couple who bought part of his land, accross the road.)
