Rest peacefully my dear uncle. Your laugh and smile are etched on my heart and in my memory. You were a wonderful man and I know my parents (dad, especially) will miss you terribly! Thanks for the memories you built with my husband, as you took that logging road time and time again, to get to "the best fishing spot around"! When I glance up at the peacock feathers you so loving gave to me, I will forever smile with beautiful memories of you!
As the sun goes down and the day grows dim, I feel your spirit fill the air. It is the hardest during these times. There is a huge whole in my heart that will never be filled. I love you Daddy, Be free, fly high. Someday, I’ll hear you speak me name once more.
You will be dearly missed you are now dancing with the angels now .
A man with a heart of gold we love you .My prayers are my sister and her family.
Sorry for your loss
Tammy (SEARLES) Duncan
You are free ....
"I wish you could stay; but I understand." Words that had so much meaning, and more each time you said them to me. You shall be forever in my heart!
