Memories Timeline


  1. Dorothy, we are so sorry for your loss. We have happy memories of your kind hospitality and wonderful visits back when we were in the rock club. Our daughter Rebecca still has a beautiful turquoise ring Bryan made for her for her 13th birthday! Bryan was always happy to share his talents and enthusiasm for the lapidary arts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and may God's peace and comfort be with you all.

  2. I love you Daddy and always will and I miss you this 2015 Father's Day. Lots of people came through my line today buying gifts for their Dad's. All I could think was I don't have one anymore. You're always in my heart. Love Janet
