Past Comments

Madison & Liberty

Although we were not very close to our Great Grandpa we loved him and admired him. He was a strong man and lived through a lot! He has moved on to a better place where he can see, walk without pain, hopefully fish and maybe hunt:) shed tears of laughter and never feel sadness again for the things lost. We will always remember you Grandpa especially Up North where you loved to be!

When I lost my parents you became like a father to me. I enjoyed sitting with you listening to you talk about your life growing up, the jokes we shared (especially the one you always got in about the Italian watch) & listening to old country songs to which I was amazed you knew all the words, who sang it, and the year it was made. No more tears now, no sorrow, only laughter & smiles, there will always be a tomorrow. You are not alone for all who went before are there awaiting awaiting your return. Your pain is gone & you are free. We all loved you very much & will be with you again some day. I know you’ll be there awaiting our return. Love, Gayle
