MIXED FRUIT BASKET was sent by Charles P. Sanders.Dear Melissa, Amber and families, This seems much healthier to send than flowers that wilt away. I wish I could attend tomorrows service, I know the visitation is being held now as I write this. Love to you all, Chuck Sanders

A very good and fun to be around Brother-in-Law. Fran [ my sister ] made a good choice. I am forever grateful how you stayed beside her during her illness. This is one of the times I wish I didn't live so far away. May you rest in Peace, Rich

You all are in my thoughts and prayers.  I just can't believe that the good look took another good man.  But he needs his angels.  He was always so quiet while we were growing up.  Going to miss him.  Love you all.
