    Life is a gift from God. Our children,family,friends,neighbors and strangers are all gifts to be savored. Although life some days may be difficult with hardship and sadness, each breath,heartbeat and thought illustrates the beautiful gift of life. When a loved one is lost, keep positive memories alive and thank God for blessings in our past, present and future. Thinking of you all during this time of loss, praying God will comfort you, deepest sympathy to all

    Jeff, Frank and families you have our deepest sympathy. We last saw Uncle Bill while visiting Aunt Bernice, he had apparently drive himself to Monroe. He was as spunky as ever, being sweet to me and giving Tony a hard time. Remember the fun times, take good care of each other and as my Dad would say, “keep your nose clean.” Love Tony and Audrey
