Memories Timeline


  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today. I will miss our discussions in the front yard. Harry will be missed.

  2. Praying for healing and peace of mind for Marie and family. My father, George Pettus was so proud of his nephew Duane and his accomplishments. Duane and I emailed often when he was working on the family ancestry. I treasure that experience. Our earthly life is but a blink of an eye. Looking forward to greeting Duane soon in our eternal life.
