Memories Timeline


  1. Hello Stephanie, Michelle, Scott, Gary families- I want to let you all know how sorry I am for your loss of your dad. Uncle Gary was always nice to me and my family whenever we would chance to meet. The last time I saw him was in my restaurant a few years ago. I was able to sit and chat with him for a while before he continued on his way. I know you didnt have a close relationship through your lives, but Im sure that in his own way he loved you all and thought he was doing what was right for everyone in the decisions he made. I live in Spokane, Washington with my husband and 3 boys so I will not be there in person, but just know that my thoughts are with all of you. God bless you all- Kim (Jones) Koester

  2. Throughout this grand scheme of things you get a B- for effort and hard work. Where exactly you misplaced me was in the particulars. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more true right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you exactly what did deliver the results. The writing is certainly extremely convincing and that is probably why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can certainly see the leaps in reason you make, I am not necessarily confident of how you appear to connect your details which in turn produce the conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your issue but wish in the foreseeable future you connect the facts better.
