Judy and Families,

It is difficult to lose our parents no matter how ill they have been.  Just imagine the joy on your dad's face when she met him in Heaven for supper last night.  They were always together here on earth, now they are together with no pain or suffering ever again.

Our prayers are with you in your time of loss.

Jim and Susan

Like one of the condolences said your Mom and Dad were always together on earth and now in Heaven.  I cn see Lou May right now laughing at Ralphs jokes and riddles.

They are gone but they both left such an impression on all whom they touched that they will always be in our hearts and minds.

God Bless
Mike Dutton
