Condolences to Barb, George, Andrew and families. May you find healing in the hearts of family and friends and the memories.

Barbara Hubbs

It is hard when a loved one passes on, but the wonderful stories that you have will help you with the healing journey. I remember sitting at grandma's house and uncle leonard doing "go to bed john" with his hands. I laughed so hard at all his stories....hopefully he is safe with other family members.

Catherine Rickey and family
