  1. John was my first best friend. We met at CFI in the late 70’s and he was always fair. I met his family and shared quality time with Marge, Cleo and once in awhile, Mike. He once helped me build every piece of furniture in my house, including a rocking chair. No idea was too large for him. Yesterday i was in my garage sanding my grandfathers chair. He would have loved this project for which I usually had no patience. But Yday I was thinking of him, and settled into the project. I carry more values instilled by him than any other person I ever met. When I heard he passed, months later, Susan and I said, “we know what Ruthie and Kenny are doing now…they are laughing together”.

  2. Cleo and family,
    I was so sorry to hear about your dads passing. Please know I am thinking about you. Love Deb

  3. What a wonderful Tribute you gave to your father today. Life gets so busy that sometimes we get lost in what’s really important. Your memorial was a profound statement and reminder. Thank you. We are here if you need anything. Love always, Nancy

  4. Dear Corsi Family,
    My sympathy to you all. My Dad, Carl McGraw, worked with your Dad at the mill. I taught school with your Mom at Hellbeck. I know my Mom and Dad both would like you to know they thought a lot of your parents. My Dad passed 21/2 years ago and my Mom is in poor health. May you find comfort with your memories and each other. God Bless you all. Sincerely, Judy McGraw Thomas

  5. So very sorry, Cleo. Be sure to let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Do you need anything cooked, or help serving? I’m available after 5:00 any day; just give me a call. With love and prayers for you and your family,
