Just thinking about my Grandfather right now. I miss him every day and keep finding myself using the wisdom he passed to me, each time a little reminder of the impact he had on my life.
Shawn Merritt

My grandfather left me with the gifts of the understanding of family history and the values of life that he passed on through my father and were passed on to me. I know he loved us very much and always showed me the most kindness of a loving Grandfather whenever we talked and saw one another. Like my father, I wish only to have had the chance to see him one last time and tell him how much I loved him before he left us. I will miss him very much.
Michael Tyzick

I remember my Father in Law as a most kind, humble and christian man. He was incredibly loving and caring to his wife Doris and children. We shall certainly miss him very much.
Claudia Tyzick

Doris and Ernie- Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless you and family. Lou and Shirlee

Cliff was the most humble, godlike man I ever met. Always polite, always considerate and loving of Doris and his family.
