I have known you for only a few years, yet feel fortunate to have met you while you were visiting Sue and Tom in Tabor. Both you and your husband were so sweet and kind. You will be missed by many. Sue is blessed to have had such dear parents.

Mom I miss you so so much, but you are now at peace, no pain! Little Teddy and Oscar just sit and watch out the window for you, they are dogs but they know you are not here. I know that you and Dad are finally together again for all eternity. You both will be missed every day. You left me with beautiful memories to cherish. Please give Dad a hug from us. The legacy you two left was amazing and will always be remembered. Rest in peace until we are together again........We Love You!!!!

Miss you and love you grandma. Rest well and know you will be thought of and missed everyday. Give grandpa a hug for me

Aunt Teenie (& Uncle Junior too) gave me unconditional love. No matter what else might be going on at the moment, I was always "Danny" to them. Teenie was the one person not under my roof that I knew I could tell anything (and did), and there would be no judgment, only love. That's a commodity more rare than any diamond.
