    Bella Vista ARWe love you all. We share the heart ache.
    It still doesn’t seem real. We lost a very special man in our life. I can see him and our Angels catching up on all the earthly happenings.
    I know you already know…but I will say it again…whenever….whatever you need you can call and we will be there for you.
    Gail …your my Angel and always have been, from the first time I got to hold you as a baby.
    With Love, Aunt Judy and Uncle Fred

    Words can not express how I feel right now! Orel was definitely the voice of reason just a few weeks ago and I could see though that awful experience how much he loved each of you. Wishing I was closer to give you all hugs and a few of you kisses! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers! Please know you can count on us for anything. Brandon if you don’t recognize the name “I’m the good one!” Gail and Cindy margaritas on me when I get back!

    Always remember there is a “new” ANGEL AMONG US!

    Love you guys

    Thoughts and prayers sent your way!

    Lima OHThose we love don’t go away,
    they walk beside us every day…
    unseen, unheard, but always near,
    still loved, still missed and very dear.

  10. Monique says:

    I am very sorry for your loss. Although I did not know your loved one personally, I hope knowing that they are in our loving heavenly Father’s memory will bring your family comfort during this difficult time. Very soon now we can look forward to God’s promise at a Revelation 21:4: “… Death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore, the former thing have passed away.”

    How does one say goodbye to the worlds best daddy, husband, grandpa, father-in-law, brother, uncle and friend around? Words cannot describe how much you will be missed by all around. You are loved and will be missed by all that had the pleasure to know you.
    RIP daddy I love you!
    Your loving daughter,
