Cousin Jon:

I'm going to miss your sense of humor, stories about WV. and the way you and Karen always support my love of dogs. Who else shows up to watch their cousin and her Welsh Corgi herd sheep or all of those Jack Russell Terrier Trials?

Thanks for the great care and concern you had for my Dad. He always loved going to Masonic programs and events with you.

You fought "long and hard", and I know you are resting in peace.

Love, Cousin Judy and her doggies, Autumn Joy and Jesse James

Family of Mr.Woodford - I'm very sorry for your loss and pray for God's comfort and strength during this difficult time. I was blessed to be a band student of Mr. Woodford at GBP Elem. in the early 70's. I still have my Clarinet that I played through school. He taught me to read music - I still have a very strong love for music and enjoy sharing my gifts that he help foster.

Dear Family,
I had Mr. Woodford as the music teacher at George Cromwell Elementary School. He taught me to play the flute, my Mother is a retired school teacher and saw the announcement in their newsletter. I am so sorry for you loss. He was a good man and we alll respected him. God Bless.
