    Hi! Mrs.Monks
    I am sorry for the passing of your husband. I always enjoyed coming. into his room and offering him a snack and giving him a glass of lemonade that he loved so well. I had found me a new buddy. I will miss him as I know you and your family will miss him more. If you just need to talk or need anything let me know and I will try to help. A friend Melissa.

    Vickie,
    So very sorry for the loss of your dad. Remembering seeing him and your mom often, while they were visiting your grandparents in Booger Hollow.
    both were always so nice and friendly. May God’s grace and mercy give you and your family peace and comfort during this sad time.

    Aunt Dot, Vickie, David and Dale, I am so sorry for your loss and will pray for the whole family. I am glad that I was able to visit him last week when I was working in Huntsville. I am sorry but I will not be able to be at the funeral since I will be flying to Puerto Rico. Love, Brent
