Shari, So sorry to hear of your father's passing. I just read the Post-Crescent and saw your father's Obituary notice. However, by the time I saw the notice, I missed the funeral service. I am back in the area and would love to get together and catch up with you. I'm so sorry we lost contact over these almost 20 years. I saw in the Obituary that your mother passed away a couple years ago. So sorry. I remember how close you were with your mother. Remember, God is watching over you, as well as both of your parents and smiling down on you with love. May you find comfort in all the memories you have of all the good times with your parents. My e-mail address is [email protected] I hope to hear from you... Michelle

John and Shari: I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I heard about your mom way too late, or I would have been at her funeral. She was my favorite teacher! John - if you need anything or would like to talk, feel free to look me up. Again, I am sorry for your loss and please find peace in the fact that your parents are together again in Heaven.

Your dad and loved one will be missed. He and your mother we're caring Christian role models. When I was in girl pioneer's I remember your mother as was your dad a part of boy pioneer's. A loving Christian home for their children to be a part of, and devoted to their congregation of believer's in Christ. Take care and God bless to those who will miss them. You are in our prayer's. The Tina and Rodney Kahler family

So sorry to hear about your dad. I worked for him at AAL back in 1973 through 1979 in the field payroll area. He was always a very caring and understanding boss. We occassionally talked fishing and how he enjoyed getting on the boat and relaxing.

Am so sorry to hear about your dad. I worked with Don at the pc.He was a very enjoyable man to work with and to talk with. HE ALWAYS TALKED SO HIGHLY OF HIS FAMILY AND ALWAYS HAD A SMILE WHEN HE DID. I MISSED DON WHEN HE LEFT THE PC FOR THE LAST TIME. I HOPE ALL THE GOOD MEMORIES YOU HAVE OF YOUR DAD WILL HELP YOU IN THIS TRYING TIME. YOU KNEW YOUR DAD BETTER THAN I DID BUT TO ME HE WAS ONE HECK OF A GREAT MAN. GOD BLESS YOU BOTH BECKY VANDEVOORT

Shari and John, I know that your mom, God and everyone else were there with open arms waiting to welcome your dad home. They partied like only heaven can when he arrived. You two will be ok, just remember the strength and love from both parents is still with you.
