Memories Timeline


  1. Family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. This is a difficult time for most. There are basic things that can help anyone get through the pain no matter what age, gender or religious beliefs. Many have been helped with the twelve basics or just a few. You can go to and get the basics with no cost ever. See the article “Help for those who grieve “ in the magazine section. Anyone can get help and comfort.

  2. To all of Don’s family-I’m so sorry about Don’s passing. Don is my daughter in law’s grandfather, and, it was always fun seeing him when ever we were out there visiting. He was a special person who will always bring a smile to my face when he crosses my mind. We were both welders, so, we had a lot in common, and, had fun talking. I’m sure he passed on being proud to call you his family! May he Rest In Peace.—-Christopher V. Sakos

  3. So sorry for your loss. We were neighbors to Rose and Virgil, and George when he moved back. Also know Art and Shirley. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
