  1. Dear Alice, David, Robyn and all your families,

    So very sorry for your loss of a wonderful husband, dad and grandfather. I have many happy memories of our families being together at Marion Lake and Branson on vacations. May Jesus surround you in His peace. Love you.

  2. Don was a favorite during his employment at Railroad Savings! We did not work together, but shared the real estate ‘industry’. May good memories bring comfort.

  3. Dear Alice & Family,
    I just learned that my Navy buddy passed on recently. Terribly sorry. We had many good times together at Hutchinson NAS, working in the dispensary.
    I will continue to remember your family in my prayers.
    Charles Abercrombie
