    Agnes and myself are so sorry to hear this sad news. It is hard to see our parents and friends go. This something we must live with as we always remember them and the good times we had growing up with them guiding and directing us as we faced our ups and downs in life. We enjoyed having a hotdog with Al and Josephine, in Costco, as we talked about how our families and our common backgrounds and relatives. Al was a good friend to us as we came into Northside community and willing to help us however he could. We all will miss Al and Josephine as we move forward with our lives. May God be with you all and bless and comfort your family as we go into this sad time with you. Take comfort that your Mom and Dad are together again in eternity.

    Richard, Mark and Family,
    Please know how much your Dad and Mom meant to us and our family. My Dad and your Dad grew up together and I have been told many stories even from your Dad. We will not even mention the friendship between Uncle Scot and Aunt Mae. He will be missed but praise God he is with the love of his life, what a reunion. We are here for you always.
    In His Love,
    Danny and Jane

    Mark & Richard, your parents were such fine examples to us over the years as neighbors. We can still hear your Dad whistling as he came by on his tractor, always with a wave and a smile on his face. We look forward to seeing them again in heaven…maybe one day soon! Much love to you all.
