JERRY and family
I am so sorry to hear the loss of your father. He was such a sweet man. I am glad that I had the opportunity to know him and to help take care of him at Asa's Neighborhood at the village at woods edge. He always had a smile no matter what. Even when he didn't feel good. He had a mind of his own and you never would know what he might would say lol. Just know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers at this time of sorrow. He will be dearly missed.

Our condolences on the loss of your beloved Donald. I knew him as a devoted Husband, Father and Friend. He was always welcoming, cheerful, generous and had many stories to tell. His greatest gift was his gift of himself to others--Joyfully. He would drive 25 miles from Franklin to take care of the property at The Well, spend 4-6 hours cutting grass, then drive back to Franklin. Don and Loretta were God's Blessings in our lives; we love them both.
