Memories Timeline


  1. Cindy and Randy and families. So sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a wonderful man. We got to know them many years ago and they were always fun to see every time we saw them. From the days of seeing him helping you build your house to the flood days to the many times seeing them around town. They were always fun to talk with. Cherish your memories of them.

  3. Jim, Sheila and family- I am so sad to hear about Elvin. He was a kind considerate man. I visited at Elim and he was always so happy. He will be missed as Dad and Grandpa by your families. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Love Beverly

  4. What a great brother-in-law Elvin was. I sure miss all the winter’s we spent together in Arizona in our later years. My best memories will always be the PAGE nights we celebrated each year.. I was always dressed as Dorothy Waclawik and Elvin would come strutting in his early year clothes and we enjoyed a page night dinner. Hope you are enjoying a USED donut and coffee with John. You will surely be missed.

  5. What a great Uncle Elvin was. So glad my Mom and I got to come see you last summer. I loved hearing all the stories you could us about my Dad and Uncles in their younger years, I will surely miss them. Rest In Peace Uncle Elvin and give my Dad a hug and kiss for me.

  6. Tom, Im so sorry to hear about your Dad. We will sure miss them and think about all the things our Dads did for us. You take care and God Bless you and your Family.
