  1. We were sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. They were long-time neighbors in Shady Creek and people still ask about them. They enjoyed decorating and putting out flowers in the yard. We have often thought how much they would have enjoyed the young family now living in their home. There are lots of flowers and two little girls playing in the backyard. God bless you all.
