Don, Deb, Shelley and Kyle..wish I could be there right now with you all. We all have so many good memories because of your Mom and Dad. They taught us so much, they shared so much with so many! Such a work ethic! both of steadfast, so frugal. Reading - the joys, pleasures, knowledge, escape to other lives and worlds. Gardening, camping in the back yard, washing dishes, homemade ice cream, floats on Saturday nights. Security - You knew what to expect. You all took care of Grandma Rose, they took care of people, they helped more people than we will ever know. Now, Aunt Kathryn and I have something in common - we like to talk and we also love to give advice even if you don't think you need it...we just want to help. Your Mom and Dads legacy will live on through our children..your Mom and Dad were memory makers...I believe that they are with the Lord waiting on us to join them one day with Randy..your Moms memory is restored, your Dad is saying "Kathryn" as he looks over his glasses and Randy is in Gods backyard in Uncle Dub's garden catching lizards and snakes..."okie Dokie", "See you later alligator" Praying for God's comfort to surround you all and the good memories to surface and make you smile through the tears. Love always, your cousin and joint heir of Jesus's love through your Mom and Dad.
