Message: A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept my condolences, and know my "Buddy" Butch as we called each other will not be forgotten. His and my relationship at JRMC lasted for 25 years or so. I have missed him and his kind spirit since the day he retired. I regret other responsibilities will prohibit me from attending his services. I assure you there is not much that would have kept me from paying my last respects.
