    Grandpa you were simply amazing! You loved our family more than anything and always made sure we were taken care of! I’m sure Gram was happy to have you back. We love you always and miss you already.

    i am so sorry for your loss! I remember Mr. Fortune’s TV repair days but mostly his Western Auto years. The store was so interesting to me as a kid and I enjoyed renting the “two-seater” bicycle there. Keeping you all in loving thought and prayer.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.  Uncle Jim was a wonderful man.  I'm sure Aunt Barbara, Mom and Gram B are there waiting to embrace him.  You will be dearly missed!

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is never to easy to lose a loved one to such a painful thing as death. It is our memories and the memories of others that help us cope and give us comfort. There is another hope that can give us a real comfort. Isaiah 25:8 has proved to be such a comfort for me.  He (God) will eliminate death and wipe the tears from all faces. May your own faith be a strengthen aide for you.
