    Dear Uncle Larry, Mark & Dianne,Jeff & Jennie, Theresa & Chuck. Each of you, and your children, are in our thoughts and prayers. I like to reminisce about the old days and sometimes just like to drive by the old places to stir up memories. Last year drove by the old place by Trufant and remembered the apple tree out front and chasing cousins around it. Another time, drove by the place on the county road and thought about the fun we had in the barn, and the big old bull that almost did us in chasing us under the electric wire!!! Also, picking up many bags of nuts from the big hickory tree in the field. I also remember a few times when Uncle Larry and sometimes Aunt Rosie would come over late at night and have a cup of coffee or egg sandwich with my dad before he went to work at 11:00 pm. Lot’s of good memories, these and many more. Life is precious and short and is an honor to have had your family as a part of hours. God Bless.

    Dear Teresa and family, Please accept my sincere condolences regarding the loss of your Mom. She was such a wonderful woman, always went out of her way for others. I certainly remember the kindness and support that she extended to me when I needed it most. I would rather be telling this to you face to face, unfortunately I am recovering from major surgery, and I am unable to attend the funeral.
    You are in my heart and prayers, Love, Karen(Hamilton)

    Don & I wish to express our Deepest Sympathies to you Larry and your family at the untimely death of your wife and mother. Although I didn’t know Rose Ann real well, we will miss her smiling face at the flee markets, and over to the Stahl’s get togethers and picnics. Mark if you or any of your family needs to talk to someone Lee can help you as he lost his Dad without any notice, or chance to say good bye, so he knows what you are going thru.
    When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange
