I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. Both your dad and mom were very special to me and will always have a special place in my heart. It was an honor knowing your parents and to take care of both of them. Both your mom and dad were very loving. I will always remember the beautiful stories your mom would tell me and look over at your dad . You dad lit up just as much as your mom did when the story was told on when they met and their first date. Your parents always lit up when they talked about each other and every one of you. How much love your parents had for all of you. Your parents are once again together. Its been my honor to know and love both of your parents . They will never be forgotten. God bless each and everyone of you. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

We are so sorry to hear about your Father. He and your Mother were a very fun loving couple and I know that they happy to be together again. Unfortunately, Bob and I are not able to attend the services as we will be on our way up North to one of their favorite areas, Park Falls. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

Ted was so cool. We had such fun at his 90th birthday party! What stories he shared. When he started laughing, ya couldnt help but laugh along with him. I remember Bernice and Ted sitting with us on our lawn and watching the Village parade a few Julys ago. We shared some wine and laughs as we waved to neighbors. Come winter , you have to get up really early to beat Ted to the snow shoveling. Then he would walk over some of Bernices wonderful homemade baked goodies; so good and addictive, that youd have to shovel the whole Village to work it off! Ted and Bernice are togther again now. We were so blessed to have lived right next door to them for those years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you kids.
