A bit early, but age demands that you must do what you must do when you are thinking of it.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and great health for the coming year.

Hi Vic,
I was going thru some old pictures and found pictures and found one of our fathers in their Fireman's uniforms. Would like to send you a copy, but need an address if you would like a copy. You can email me at

Thank you for sharing the news of Joyce's passing. I did not realize that she had been in a nursing facility for sometime. My prayers for her brother and nephew.

Hi Donna, I just wanted to let you know that Bill passed away on 6/28/18 in the evening.
He was diagnosed on 3/14/18 with stage IV pancreatic cancer that had metastasized to his liver and hip bone. After a few rounds of chemo with no improvement and the effects of the chemo taking a toll on his body, we decided on Hospice Care. He passed almost exactly two weeks from entering hospice. We will have a Celebration of Life in about two weeks. You may pass on if you wish. Just wanted to let you know.

Happy Birthday Donna and hoping you mark this special year with another trip to
some place special. Remember if you come East, we are only a little North and you and Doug are welcome.
