  1. Donna and Diana,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I can remember your Mom and Dad and have many fond memories of them both. I still reminisce over our times on Corey lake. Prayers for comfort and healing.

  2. Mrs. Rink was a long time customer when I owned the Army surplus store in downtown T.R.. Her husband wore a certain kind of pants that I sold and she always came in and bought them for him. Mrs. Rink was a very nice lady and I always enjoyed seeing her come in. The Rinks were a great couple and it saddens me to see of their demise. To her family please accept my sincere condolences. The Rinks will be missed.

  3. You always had that warm contagious smile, witty personality. The kindness you always showed is now showing in the younger generation. You live in our memories forever. Our Condolences
