Our condolences to my Uncle Wayne and family with the loss of such a great lady and Aunt. There are so many great memories of the times in Streator, IL and on Teegardin Rd. Times at my grandparents house, holidays, birthdays, weddings and many other special occasions are cherished for a life time, never to be forgotten.

My condolences to Nancy's family in your time of loss. We had some great phone conversations, usually about horses or hay. May you feel God's presence as you navigate this difficult time.
