Eric, Nancy and to your whole family - May you all find solace in the fond memories, the thoughts and the prayers of friends and acquaintances, across the miles and over time. I warmly recall the YMCA Indian Guides meetings we all participated in, camping and doing crafts together as far back as the late 1960's. Be well as you reflect on your father, on the family's good times over the years in the face of the loss earlier this year, as time marches on. Grieving is an individual experience. So, as you proceed along life's pathway, recall and review the past, examine the present, and embrace the future with all that is and has been garnered all along. Most Sincerely, Scott

Dear Jean: Faye and I would like to send our condolence in your loss at this time. When we first moved to Touchmark, you and Jim were gracious and caring, in your welcome to our new "home"...it was much appreciated. Knowing the love Jim had for "his" Badgers, I will always hold that love in my heart, everytime "we" will be watching any Wisconsin Badger's sporting event. Our thoughts are with you..with love, Faye and George Challoner.
