Memories Timeline


  1. You will be missed so much brother. You were like a father to me and I appreciate everything you have done for me. Rest in paradise Brother

  2. We love you Murf. Thank you for being a great grandpa and father in law. We will miss you forever ❤️

  3. Little brother, I am going to miss you terribly!! I enjoyed our little talks and your advice about cars. I know that you are in a better place now, and that you will be with all the family that left before you. It won’t be too long before I will join you. Meet me at the gates and lead me on! Love you always.

  4. I was thinking about my uncle, and his untimely death. It brought to mind a question that must be laid to rest. If heaven is so wonderful, perfect , pure, and true. What in the world could there possibly be for a mechanic to do? Oh, I can just see him now, tool belt, halo, and wings staring at his harp, without a single broken string, He’ll search the moon, the sun, the stars for something he can fix. He’ll come to the conclusion, it’s just Satan and his old tricks. Can you imagine the look on that ol’ devil’s face and his consternation as well? When my uncle George builds an air conditioner and sends it down to hell!!
