My condolences to your family. I was able to only say hi to pay through the window at Jefferson nursing home. He was my husband's roommate there. I know my husband enjoyed talking with him sharing meals and watching movies together. Iprayers for you doing this difficult time.

So sad at your loss. I remember him and Gwen dating and being out at the property in Stagecoach. There is no cure for the sadness that follows the loss of someone we love. May the best memories be the ones that you bring to mind often and relive the joy that you shared.

We were clients of Pat's with Beaumont Pest Control. He always arrived at our home and business with a big smile on his face, and always spoke of his children and Charlene. He was very proud of his family. I will be praying for all, and I am so sorry for your loss. He was such a gentle and kind person, and will definitely be missed.
