Cam thank you for remembering us. Would have contacted you, but no address to do so. Don't know if you remember, but James kept saying he was going to live to be 138 years. He did pretty well with the 91. There are lots of memories about all the family and we do remember you at this time as well. Connie
Also, Nichol, your Grandpa loved you and was so glad when you would come with your children. Grandma Minshall loved it when you would come and eat with her at noon from school. Remember she counted out the tater tots and when she got to the peas, you said, "Duz we hafta count the peas too?" You were a little one in kindergarten then. We've all got lots of memories that are coming back in at this time.. Love You! Aunt Connie

Connie and Steve, I am sorry to hear of Uncle Ed’s passing. He lived a long life. Yes, he was quite the storyteller. He liked tp visit and drink coffee. You have your memories of him to cherish . Thoughts are with you to get you through this difficult time.
Love Jo

We will always remember you as a sweet and giving person who brighten our days with smiles and knowing we were loved. My family and I will miss the visits and the hugs. I know you'll be one of the welcoming party on the other side when it's our turn. We'll have a lot of stories to share when we meet again.

My thoughts are with Nicole and family and Steven and Charlotte the passing of their Father and Grandfather. So much of our family as gone on to be with the Lord and they are all missed. I'm thankful for those who have expressed caring thoughts. Our daughter and her family, along with other nieces, nephews and others loved my brother, Eddie, but know we'll see him once more because of Jesus and the promises of God's Word.
