  1. Pam and Family, My deepest sympathy to your family during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless You.

  2. Ron, I was sorry to hear of your loss. Some of my best memories as a kid growing up in our neighborhood were of sitting and talking to your grandfather. He usually was sharing a funny story about his youth or some of his business adventures. He will truly be missed. God Bless you and your family.
