Kip,I'm so sorry to hear about your father. I know I haven't seen you in years but my folks still live in the same place and I occasionally drive by your old place on Fowler and it remindes me of the great times we had growing up. Mom always lets me know when she sees you at the eye doctor. You treat her so nice and it makes her feel special. Thanks for that. Please give your Mom and Scott my condolences. God bless you my old friend.Roger

Dear Lois and Crowell family,We were sorry to hear about Uncle Eddie's passing, and even more sorry we couldn't attend the funeral. We sure loved him and his wonderful sense of humor. He always had a smile on his face. We will miss him but are grateful to know that he will be greeted with loved ones, including Val. We love you and your family and you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Love to you all-Krista Farrington and family

Kip we were shocked to read of your father's passing. We know that he has moved to the next assignment but his sudden departure has to have caused some strong feelings with all of you. We pray that the Comforter will be with all of your family at this difficult time of parting and that your testimony of the life after this one will bring you all peace. We did not know your father that well but we know you and have to think that you share many of your father's attributes. We see his smile in your smile. What a tribute to him your life has been. You have brought honor to him by the life you live. We cherish your friendship and pray for all of you at this time.Love,Dan & Nancy Litchford

Lois and Family,We extend our love to you at the graduation of Ed to a more exalted sphere.We have surely loved and appreciated you for the past number of years in Beaver Dam and all that you have done for mother. She cherishes the memories or your adventures and trips to Logandale to the county fair, swap meets, desert excursions and most of all your love and friendship for her. You have been a source of peace and love for her. We will miss stopping buy and visiting with you. We have good memories of the both of you and your desire to serve your fellow beings.May the Lord bless and comfort you at this time of sorrow. Even though we all know that this time will come to each of us, it is not the end. Nevertheless, it still brings pain and sorrow, for you have passed through so many joys,tests and trials together. You no longer can reach out and touch and hold each other to give one another comfort. Now we rely on family and friends to help fill the void and loneliness until we meet again. Jesus Christ died that we may live again having body and spirit reuinited in perfect form, never to taste of death again, becoming immortal and through our desire to be faithful to his plan, be together as husband, wife and families forever.We Love YouGary/Larraine/Ada
