Sandra and family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. So sorry for your loss. Even though your dad had a good long life, losing a parent is never easy. Cherish the memories as you look ahead. I did not know Frank Waters was your uncle. He was a dear and close friend for many years.

We would like to offer condolences to the family of Vernon. My parents and I knew him from the Eagles club and his late wife Joy was a secretary at Lansing School district where I was a student aide who worked under her. They were both wonderful people and we are sorry for your loss. Prayers and blessings to his family in this difficult time. The Larry and Mary Walls family.
