Memories Timeline


  1. "Fern", as we called her, was one of the most faithful members of the Living Center Sing Along—–many, many years, and even came in her wheel chair for a long time. She had a beautiful smile, a beautiful voice, and was so funny. Her husband made the stand that we still use today in our Sing Along. Rocky, may God comfort you with good memories of your mom. You were wonderful to her and she loved you dearly.

  2. Rocky – Our thoughts and prayers are with you, it is so hard to lose your Mother. Your Mom was always so kind to us, such fond memories. May God keep you and your family in His loving care. Our love and prayers, Anne, Melanie, and in loving memory of Tony

  3. Rocky, Tun, Wade, Amanda, Kaly… You are all often in my thoughts. Today you're also in my prayers during this difficult time. May God bless you with peace, and may you find comfort in the many wonderful memories you have.
