All the years of living next door to you all will be a happy memory. Your dad always coming over and talking in the kitchen or down in the basement at the bar. Checking on what my dad was doing in the garage and giving advice on how to do it better! Ha! That was your dad. He will be missed! May perpetual light shine upon him.

Dear Dawn and family, Anymore I just quick glance at the paper; however, I saw the name Chaz and read of your dad. I'm sorry, it's especially hard at holiday time. God bless you all. It was always nice knowing you.
