Condolence & Memory Journal

I'll never forget the time that your son Mike and I were attempting to break into your car after you left your keys in the car. It was across the street from the bank where you were working, and here come the police. If you hadn't come to our rescue, we'd both have been in jail.

Lots of good memories of you and your family. Rest in Peace.
