I am so very sorry I just heard this. Your mom and dad were such wonderful people. your dad always remembered and spoke to me even when I had not seen him for years. I know what great friends they were to Sam and Jessie and so thankful that your dad visited Sam for as long as he could. He was the true example of a Christian. I have no doubt he is in a better, happy place and resting in peace with his Ruth!

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Dad. Ray and your Mom went to High school with us and we were involved with all the reunions. They will be remembered as two nice gentle people and their many talents. Veda and Al Orwasky

Carol, Judy and family,
We are quite saddened by the news of your father's passing. He was a fine man, and we will always have great respect for him and his many talents. Most of all, though, we appreciate the many years of friendship he and your mom had with our parents.
With sincere sympathy, Gordon and Kim
