  • To our friend Jerry Eckelberry, our condolences to you and the family, Patti was a wonderful lady, if there is anything you need please call. May she rest in peace, God be with you. Sorry to hear of her passing.

  • Don’t think of her as gone away-
    her journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets-
    this earth is only one. . .
    Just think of her as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.
    Think how she must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.
    And think of her as living
    in the hearts of those she touched. . .
    for loved is never lost-
    and she was loved so much.
    RIP my friend

  • Our deepest sympathy for your loss, Jerry. We didn’t know your wife but our hearts go out to you for the loss of your best friend
