Memories Timeline


  1. Dad our thoughts and prayers are with you. Grandma will hold a special place in our hearts. We will treasure our time together with grandma last year on our cross country adventure. Her little giggles as the three of us tumble into bed and when Scotty tried to give her her pills whole, instead of crushed. Our love goes out to you, the father who taught me how to hunt and fish and gave me memories to last forever. Love Scott and Chris

  2. Grandpa we send our deepest sympathies. Greatgrandma will be missed! We can all take comfort in knowing she had a long full life. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Jennifer

  3. Goodbye Grandma, I’ll remember all the times I stayed at your trailer when you lived in Phoenix and I was a small boy.
