  1. I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers. Losing someone so special is difficult but knowing they are in a better place makes it a little easier. Just remember all the good memories. I know he knew how much you all cared for him! HUGS!!

  2. Tom and Tim – My sincere sympathy to you and your families for the loss of your Dad. Tucker has been loved, by my family, for so many years. The great times will never be forgotten at our camps in Sigel, Jefferson County. His friendship with Frank is my favorite memory, when they were with us, putting on new shingles on the roof of our camp. Remember the time you guys thought I was dead in dear season, when I was laying down resting in the snow, because I almost got lost and rushed to get back to a familiar area. Great memories of friendship, at camp, many miles away, and living so very closeby. Tucker will never be forgotten. I know he’s hiking and hunting in his resting place. Love you guys always, Janet
