"Dear Sally, Your dear friends, Kathy and Jim, called me to tell me you had gone to be with Jerry (and Bubba too). Words can't express how sad I am, knowing I won't get to say goodbye and give you my love, one last time, since your service is private. The many friends who love you and whose lives you blessed, would have been there if they could. I'm so grateful for Annie's and my trips up to Milford to see you.
I can't tell you how grateful I am to Kathy and Jim, not only for letting me know, but also for taking such good care of you these last 9 years. I always wished I didn't live so far away. In our daily phone conversations, you told me how they were always there for you.....surgeries, doctor appointments, shopping, everything. They loved you like family, sincere and true, never expecting anything in return, just your love and friendship, which I know they had! Kathy and I spoke often once you went into the center. We have promised to stay in touch, in your memory. Because of you, I have two new friends!
You and Jerry were a blessing to so many people, me and Annie included. Our 50 year friendship meant more to us than you will ever know, although you and I told each other often enough! We will never forget you, or your kind and loving heart. God bless you dear old friend. We'll miss you terribly but we're so blessed you were in our lives. You and Jerry will be in our prayers and hearts always. Don't worry about Kitty, Kathy and Jim have adopted him and are taking great care of him!
Our sincere condolences to your sister-in-law, niece, and nephew.
Love, your friends always, Doreen Dunbar and Annie from New Jersey"
There are no words to express my sadness to hear about the unexpected passing of Lewis. In the past year, he had come back to the high school…..and visited with the group of teachers who are still left there nearly twenty years after he graduated! It was wonderful to hear of his professional success, but he was most proud of his role as husband and father! Lewis’ attitude, optimism and enthusiasm for life were truly inspiring! I did ask about Debbie and Eddie….having worked with both in the high school….and he spoke just as proudly of both of you! I am out of town for the end of this week….so will not be able to join you at the services, but please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers!
My deepest, most heartfelt condolences to the Sanders' family. I never had the privilege of meeting Lewis' immediate family(Tiffany and children) although I know anyone close to Lewis had to be special too. It has been an agonizing week for me as I know it has for you all. I wish so much to be there to pay my respects but, distance does not afford me that opportunity. What a special man Lewis was! So kind, honest, hard-working and funny. He will be truly missed and his presence a loss to us all. With my deepest sympathy, Andrea
Aunt Tina will be so missed. I loved her laugh, I loved her intelligence and I miss her great cooking. So many memories in my life are centered around Aunt Tina. Too many to write. I just want everyone to know that I loved her a lot and I am so sorry for the loss everyone has suffered. Tina us now home with her beloved Lord which she looked forward to seeing one day. Gone but never ever forgotten.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Christina Quick. My mother Alberta Hallock McDowell always made sure we went to see her and her family when we were going from station to station since my father was military. I am also so glad that I had a chance to go by and visit with her with my brother the last time we were in Port Jervis. She was such a wonderful person. We even were able to have lunch with her at Texas Lunch while we were there. I know she will be missed. The Angels have another great person. My condolences to Elaine and Susan.
Aunt Tina was a special person to each of us. She was there for the good times, and when difficulties presented themselves, she was there for those too, with hugs, prayers, and encouraging words. I've always thought of her as the "glue" that held our family together. Although she is no longer present with us here on earth, I know she would want us to embrace her faith that we will be reunited with her again, someday. Her life was truly an inspiration!
Heard of Jeans passing Wanted to express my sympathy Jean was such a lovely warm and friendly person I enjoyed knowing her when I lived around the corner from her. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers Take care Barbara Edwards
To the Family of Mr. Worzel: To Kathy, Len, Matthew and all of your extended family: Our thoughts and Prayers are with you at this very difficult time. We are honored that he served in WW2 and are grateful for his service...we know how proud you all are of him and the long legacy he left you! With Love, John and Betsy DelSanto
Your Robert "Bobby" was a great person and always made me laugh. We went to school way back. I am saddened to hear of his passing. He was one of the people " you never forget." My prayers and condolences from afar.
Fran and I would like to express our deepest sorrow in Bob’s passing. Bob was a member of our senior league baseball team and Bob was in our wedding party. Bob was a good man and will be missed by his family and friends.
