We are so sorry for the families loss, Charlie was such a kind person and always made us feel welcome every time we were around him. I will miss some of the conversations I had with him whether it was politics, the past or life in general. Heaven has a special man now and I am sure he is smiling down on his family and he will be there to greet his loved ones when they are called home some day. We miss you Charlie and we thank you for the wonderful memories of your kindness and thoughtfulness. May God bless your family during their time of mourning.

Ryan, we are so sorry for your loss. We have known Nancy since she was in grade school and we attended your wedding. We live near St. Louis and are sure you do not remember us. Please know we have been praying for you and your family. We also said the Devine Mercy during the 3 o'clock hour of the funeral. Be patient with yourself and stay close to those you love and who love you. God's peace. Love and prayers. Larry and Sherlyn

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of Richard. Wally called me and told me of his passing. My husband Jerry, worked at Orscheln's, at the same time as Richard, Walley, Heffley and a few others. They were all sort of partners in crime. I still remember some of the stories Jerry, shared from work. Praying you find comfort in knowing you will be together again some day.
