Condolence & Memory Journal

Craig and family, I never had the pleasure of meeting your father but I'm sure he was a great man. If you take after him I'm sure he was. Allan and I always enjoyed shopping at Bucks Hardware. He never liked going to the big box stores. Your store always had what we needed. God Bless!

Joan and family,

You have our sympathy in Bob's transition to heaven.

He was always enjoyable to talk to and even more so to listen to.

I appreciated his kindness extended to me personally in regards to church.

May your comfort be found in the many memories made over the years. We will hold your family in prayer.

Joe, Barb and Maggie Conley
