I will wait all the days of my compulsory serviceUntil my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you.You will long for the work of your hands." May you have peace and comfort." JR

Dear Uncle Dave, even though I hadn't spoke to you in awhile you were always in my thoughts! I always think about the time I came to visit you in 2004 and you took me Trout Fishing and I caught a bigger one than you! LOL! Then we went to the mines and got some previous stones! I still have the little ones you sent to me! And remember the way you cooked that Trout that was fabulous! I wish I could have seen you when Mommy died but I understood why you couldn't make it! I Pray that You, Mommy, Auntie Doreen, Uncle Tommy and Nanny and Grandpa are all at peace together! I'll never forget when you came to See your Sister (my Mom) and making your Tea always in Her little Tea Pot all for yourself! You surely will be missed but memories always will keep you alive in are hearts! God Bless! Love your Neice, Angela
