Memories Timeline


  1. Hey Sis I will miss Michael and all of his knowledge of sport, civil war, etc. we used to talk about.

    Remember, that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make because their love leaves an imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing
    that having shared their love has enriched our lives. May your memories bring you comfort.

    Love you,

  2. I feel like I have lost my very best friend as well as a wonderful husband to my daughter and good father to 2 of my favorite grandchildren.

    We are all so sad but glad he is no longer in pain.

    I love you so much, Michael- JJ

  3. Karen,

    I am sorry for your loss, I can only imagine how difficult it must be. You and your kids are in my thoughts.
