  1. Karen, Bob and Bobby – Please accept my condolences on your loss. Karen, your parents were truly special people and I will never forget the times we spent together. I often tell the story about driving to Wampum with the explicit instructions to “stop the first person you see and ask them how to get to Ralph and June’s place.” Thank you all for the wonderful memories. I will treasure them always.



  2. We are so sorry to hear of your loss. It was always nice spending time with her at the family events. It was obvious how much she loved and was so proud of her Karen, Bobby and Lilly. June was a lovely lady and will be missed. Charlotte and Gary Carrow
