Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so happy we had new friends in Dick and Mary. We had such good times on the golf course, dining out and traveling together! It comforts me to think four good friends might be teeing up on a new course and someday we will all meet again.

I have many fond memories of both of our families on Cliffdale Ave., Black Lake, Michigan, and many more times together. Mary, I lift up what a wonderful Care taker you have been throughout all these years. Doug, Sandy, and Cindy, I lift up that your Dad is now in heaven and no longer suffers. I have no doubt Joe and Lois were there to greet him. Sincerely, Jan Mazur, 1055 Cliffdale Ave.! Now, Tampa, FLorida., 813 988-8613
