  1. Mandy, I’m so sorry to hear about your grandfather. It’s been years since we were in Jr. Church at First Christian! Maybe we can get together soon! Love and prayers, Tiffany

  2. Mary Ann, I think you are the girl I went to Edgewood with in the fifth and sixth grade. You, Solidea, and I were friends. You were always smiling. I see you moved pretty far away. Anyway I’m really sorry to read about your father’s death. It’s never easy, no matter how old parents get. My sincere condolences. Naomi (Wine) Furbee

  3. John – We were saddened to hear about the passing of your Dad. You have our deepest sympathies at this time of your loss. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Vic & Nancy

  4. Dear Mary Ann, Joe, and John, I am so sad to hear of your loss, and the loss of Mamie as well. Practically growing up with your family, I have many fond memories of all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless all of you.

  5. Johnny, Carol, and Megan: First I want to let you and your entire family know how sorry I am to hear about Grandpa Joe passing. Wish I could have came into town to give my condolences, but I can’t seem to get away from school right now. I also wanted to add that I have nothing but good memories about Grandpa Joe. I can see him driving Megan and I around town in his red station wagon with Garfield hanging in the back window. And to keep Megan and I from sneaking out the basement door, he would tell us that snakes lived under the steps! Megan, I hope you get to read this and laugh. Hope to talk to you guys soon! And if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to call me or my parents! Love you!
