  • Dear Kathy, Delores and Joyce,
    I am embracing all of you with love. I have so many great memories of staying with your family for a week in the summers when we were little kids. Playing cowboys and indians in the woods and wood tag in the barn. When we lived in the apartment above your family on 5th avenue and I would feed sand pies to Chris in the sandbox. Working at the campground together, before it was a campground. Both of your parents were very special to my parents and to me. They both helped my folks move from the campground to Howard. You hold a VERY SPECIAL place in my heart. Imagine the celebration that is going on in heaven right now! Stay strong.
    I love you,
    Bonnie and Jeff Ike

  • Kathy,
    I am sad to read of your father’s passing. May love and laughter be what you remember most.

  • Dear Kathy, Delores and Joyce ,
    You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I have so many wonderful memories of your dad and mom and us kids as we lived on 5th Ave, and played together. We were more like siblings than cousins. Your dad was always one of my favorite uncles. His soft spoken ways made you feel special. Heaven has gained a very special angel. All my love to you ,
    Barb Davis
