Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry on the loss of your Father. Monte, as a classmate of yours, there was never a time when your Dad and Mother didn't treat your friends as one of the family. After we graduated and you had moved away, I visited with them often on the phone or at the store. How proud they were of Monica and you. Wonderful person and will be missed. Thoughts and prayers are with your family.

My sincere sympathy to Monica, Jeff, Chris, Megan and their families, loved ones and friends. Charlie was a special - and "good" man who loved openly and generously. I am grateful for all the wonderful memories I'll cherish forever from knowing this kind and honest soul.

My sympathies to all the family. I was a neighbor as a child, and always enjoyed my visits to their house because both Junior and Ruth always joked and kidded with me. Good memories.
