Memories Timeline


  1. Susan and family, Kenneth and I are so sorry for the loss of your dad and mom in such a short amount of time. They were married for 68 years and needed to be together again. Susan, I know you spent so much time trying to make sure your mom and dad had everything they needed to make them as happy and comfortable as possible. It is so hard, but I know you gave them everything you had to give and they passed knowing they were surrounded by the people that loved them. I hope you and your family have found the peace your parents have found. I hope soon you will look back on all of the good times and laugh when you think about all of those cherished memories. I am so happy you were able to do everything you could to make her passing easier. Please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you. Love to all, Kenneth and Linda
