I will always cherish my childhood memories of chatting with him over the fence and passing him homemade goodies from my mom. Life is about making memories. May the memories you cherish bring moments of comfort. My deepest sympathy

    Shirley and family our deepest condolences.

  4. IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY
    BELOVED HUSBAND & FATHER
    – One Year Ago Today –

    “Gone dear husband and father, gone forever.”

    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come To Me”. You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. With tearful eyes we watched you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating and hard working hands now rest.

    In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. How we miss your smiling face you left us to remember. Our hearts are full of memories and you will forever hold a special place. Death has left us with a lonliness that the world can never replace.

    ….Your loving wife Shirley
