    My heart goes out to the family and all the loved ones, in this sincere time of need for your loss. I know it is not easy to deal with or to loose such a wonderful person. God felt it was time for
    him to come home to be with him. No more pain, no more suffering, no more worries of every day life. I pray God will comfort you at this time and the days that follow. Give you peace in your hearts,
    minds, bodies and souls. Amen!

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family. Sincerely, Mike and Marcia Welling. Friends from Parker Hannifin.

  • Rev. James A. Young (Thursday, September 17 15 09:44 pm EDT)

    I'm going to miss you Dad...we did not get much time to get to know each other but I loved you and thought of you often. I only wish we could have been a part of each others lives while I was growing
    up instead of when I was in my 40's. I'm so happy that you got to meet your granddaughter and she got to meet you. You will be missed greatly. On a lighter note you in Heaven with our Lord Jesus and
    you get to see my mom and your parents again.
