Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Veronica, Cathy, Timothy, and other Family Members,This is Cal!!!! Just wanted to give you all my condolences on the passing of your dad. I certainly have so many memories of us living on Eleanor Street and growing up together and being friends and neighbors. Please take it one day at a time and remember all the wonderful memories of your mom and dad. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you all dearly!!!Cal

  2. My prayers go out to the Guillory family. Vee, if you need anything, I am only a phone call away. I remember when your dad came to the office to see you and his feet were hurting. He told me that the doctors wanted to do a fusion. He said if I had the fusion then he would have to walk like a duck. We laughed. I knew exactly what he was saying. I went to work with my husband and saw fusions and he was right. With being said he had a great since of humor. I will keep your family in my prayers. Karen Bias
