I miss our talks and your words of wisdom. (I can see you shaking your head at the craziness of today's world and can only imagine what you'd be saying!) No matter what was going on, I knew you were just a call away and were always willing to listen (and advise). I love you and miss you!

We miss you being on this earth very much. You taught us so many things. There is hardly a day that goes by I don't think of some 'words of wisdom' you imparted on us and made us better. We love you.

To my brother-in-law's family, he is truly missed and was so loved. I appreciate the history lessons he shared with me over the years, his dark dry humor, and talking about how he lived on a plantation (in reference to being married to Margaret, who, in his words "ran the plantation" and he loved it immensely.

Papa Bear! I am the person I am because of you! My life could have taken so many wrong directions, but you put me on the right path. You loved "Skinny Belle" even when I know it was hard! You walked me down the aisle and gave me to my best friend, you shared in the birth of "Rocky" and "Reebok" and made me laugh when I did not want to. You showed me how to love unconditionally and not put up with any "mess". You showed me life was to be lived and not focus on the negative! I love you and will miss you! Margaret, family and friends: I pray you find God's peace, comfort and strength during this time of loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

'ALVIN'!! You were so instrumental in our lives and truly the rock that kept us on the right paths. You knew when to be strong and when to be patient and when to be the old softie (that you really were beneath that tough exterior). We love you very much. We didn't speak often enough, but you were always in our thoughts. To the Dry Family - Our prayers for peace and strength. Losing someone so full of life will leave a deafening empty place in all our hearts. Love, The Duck
