  • I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Please share my sorrow and condolences to the family. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to make the services and hope you all understand. Your mom was a kind lady but strong. Like your Mom, your Dad,was a favorite of many; both always had a smile and a joke to be told. There was always laughter present. Take care and again, my sympathy to you all. Stay strong and support one another now and in the future because no matter how we look at things, present and past, family is what makes us all as one.

    Leland and Ellen Leingang and family.

  • I just learned of your Mother’s passing, I’m sorry for your loss. May all the good memories help to sustain you in this time of sorrow.

    Ron and Gary, having known you both brings your loss a little bit closer to me. I also just lost my Father, and can surely appreciate your pain. I, like you, will hold on to all the good memories and love we shared with our parents.

    May God bless and comfort you all, from this moment forward and always.
