I am so sorry for your loss. Our parents are such a guide for us no matter how old we become. May God give you peace and comfort at this time and I hope that you will be able to enjoy the stories that family and friend share with you. When my dad died, we learned many things that we did not know. Cheri Thornell

Randy & Family,

I learned the meaning of hard work on your Dad's farm. Your mother also made the best sweet lemonade and brownies in the world. Thanks to your parents for great memories. My prayers are with you during these difficult times.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all - Rosemary, Randy, Kevin , David and famililies. I remember Ivan so well on his farm when visiting one summer from CT. It was such a memorable experience for me. Also the family reunions that kept us together through the years. This, I know, is a very sad loss for you.
Love, Nancy (Jason and Shannon).
