Andy and Harm can now visit freely without physical hindrances as God has called them home forever. We helped him celebrate his 100th birthday and he really enjoyed folks coming to celebrate the event. We extend our sympathy to his family and friends

Dear Janice and Family:
Larry called and said your Dad had passed away. I'm so sorry for your loss. Although he lived a very long life, it is still difficult to separate from your special loved one. My prayers to you and your family as you adjust to your loss.
Love and Prayers,
Janell and Ron Beck
