  1. Thank you to everyone. Your ongoing support has helped my family and I through this hard time. Please remember my grandfather as one of the most loving and caring gentlemen. It was his time and I am truly content with his passing. His heart and soul outgrew his body & I am happy that my grandma and him are finally together. Thanks again!

  2. Dear Danielle…(Annie Bear)
    When Marlana and I discovered the news of the passing of you Grandpa…we both wept. We know how close the two of you were and felt your pain. Marlana has many good memories of the times she spent with you and your grandpa and she shared some of those memories with me in rememberance of Mr Jones. Please know in your heart that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Nothing we can say could possibly ease your pain at a time like this…but please know that we are both here for you sweetheart. After things have calmed some for you Marlana and I would love to see you…we both miss you something terrible. You will always be my Annie Bear and one of the sweetest people I know…your grandpa will continue to watch over you (his angel) as he has done since you were a small child…he is only doing it with Jesus by his side now…what a team. God Bless you Danielle and your family…Love you always, Marlana and Mary (mom) Lamaak

  3. Millie, Tracie, Danielle and “our uncle Dan” I know how much you will miss Gary-I have missed him when I go into your store – He was always so much fun and yes, I always walked out with a purchase when he was there. You are one great family and always make people feel welcome. He will be missed greatly but you have wonderful memories to carry you on. God be with you all. Fondly Midge

  4. Dear Family:

    I am so sorry for your loss! It is very difficult for the family to loose the papa. Each one of you will feel your own loneliness for him. Stay close to one another…listen when each one needs to talk.

    We were not created to die and it is not a natural thing for us to experience. I am very sorry! My heart goes out you all!

  5. Danielle and Traci:
    We are so sorry for your loss. Your grandpa was truly a blessing! God bless you!

  6. To Millie, I am so sorry to read of your loss. A heartfelt wish for peace and comfort in the days ahead. My thoughts are with you.
