  • Sorry to hear of your dad’s passing vicky. He was a super nice guy and enjoyed talking with my husband at the tomato show and the richland mall. We were always in line for the beanie babies. He will be missed…thoughts and prayers to all.

  • So sorry for you loss. We loved being neighbors with Don. I still remember him walking Bryce’s fair hog up Pinkley Road when he had escaped. The pig walked wonderfully for Don. He was a wonderful person and always had a smile on his face. He will be dearly missed. May God comfort your family Joe and Vicki at this time of grief.
