Tim and I would like to send our condolences. It was always a pleasure to be around pap, and we enjoyed spending time with him when he would come to camp. He is now with your mother and I'm sure the two of them are watching over all of you.

Forry Family;
My prayers are with you at your time of loss. Pap was a kind and funny man as I grew up with his grand Kids. He will be missed at the Forry Family functions. Rest in peace Pap with Gram and Dave.
