  • Dear Deb,
    You have my sincere sympathy in the loss of your husband Charles. May you feel Gods presence at this most difficult time.

  • Dear Mark, so sorry to hear of Charley’s passing. I too lost my brother Fred in 2011.
    I can still remember playing touch football with you and Charley, and the Howard kids across the street on Studer Ave.

    Our deepest sympathy, Carol & Dick Reiner

  • Debby,

    I am stunned. Charles and Don both? I am so very sorry. And now my Nick has pancreatic cancer. It’s a sad time in all our lives.

    Love you,
    Aunt Judy

  • Sending our deepest sympathy and condolences to your family. May the God of all comfort strengthen you to cope and endure this difficult time.
