Messages for the family

  • My sympathy to those who remain. So sorry for your loss.

  • I am so sorry for your loss Cheryl. Don was loving husband to you and a dear friend who put up with me! I will miss him.

  • In life there are times that really matter the most. Those who were able to show up and support grandma Cheryl and the rest of our family, I can not put in words how thankful and blessed we are to have you. Grandpa, I never had the opportunity to feel your warmth in my arms but I do believe you had an aura as bright as the sun. I will continue to love you.. for you brought an intelligent yet devoted son, whom I call my dad. I see you in him almost every time. I think it’s those eyes, oh how they shine in the sun. May you soar in paradise and explore beyond the horizons. I know your soul is happier than ever, watching down on us all.

    Love your 2nd oldest granddaughter
