Uncle Don, I will always remember the ride we took along with my brother Gerry in my 1970 Dodge Superbee. It was fast and you couldn't believe how fast it was! With love and memories and thinking of you and your family at this time. Tom Wolfgram

Dad - I can't even begin to write about all the memories there are over the years with visits home, you visiting us, Christmas's spent together with all of our family, vacations we took together .... to Miami for the Orange Bowl Parade that Tim marched in, to the World's Fair in Knoxville where the road ended and there you , mom and Julie were on a ferry boat with the car to get across the river. We couldn't figure out where you had gone until we saw you waving to us from the boat. And then our wonderful Christmas a few years ago at Tim and Diane's with all of our family including Dave and family from Australia. We had some wonderful times that I will always cherish. I'll miss you tremendously. Thank you for sharing your life with me. Love Always..... Mary Beth

Grampa - Even though we were separated by many miles and did not see each other often, You were loved very much and will be missed so much. The memories I have of you will live on not only with me but with your great grand children. One of the best memories I have was when I was around 7 years old and you me and dad spent over 3 hours in the boat at the cottage in pouring rain with a tarp over us almost the whole time - I remember we caught so many fish we could barely keep track. Over a hundred or more it seemed. We recently took a fishing trip with dad and Dylan and Carson down here in SC and it was a blast and made me think back to that fishing trip when i was young and I told Dylan and Carson several fish stories of that trip when i was a kid. I hope they can reflect similar memories that we had together to their kids like I have of us. Love you ,,, Jason - Dylan and Carson.
