JR will truly be missed. I am so sorry for your loss. I just lost my dad this June, so I can well understand what your family is going through at this time. You will be in my prayers.

Joyce and family, Many years have past since I watched you grade papers at Mrs. Cline's house across the street from my parent's (Margaret and Clif Drescher) home on LaRose Cir. Your wedding day made a memory to me as a young girl looking at a beautiful bride who allowed me to hold her bouquet for a little while. Even in this time of sadness, may warm memories bring a smile. With sympathy for your loss, Karen Drescher Bentley
