Dear Peachy, I just learned about Johnny. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was filled with so many memories of our families getting together when we were all so much younger. Johnny was always such a sweet man. My deepest sympathy to you and all your family.
Dear Muriel, we were sadden to hear of John's passing. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
In reading Mr. Bates obituary his feelings about life were so wonderful and most people take it for granted but he didn't. It made me feel so much better today because I was having a bad one. He seems to have been a great man and I am so sorry for his passing. I do not know your family but I felt I needed to tell you this because it touched my heart. Sincere sympathy for your loss and may all your happy memories live on.
I was so sorry to hear of Johnny's death, Peachy. I remember good times when our families visited, all of us kids playing in your back yard while the "grown-ups" talked. He was a kind, funny man who will be missed by many. Love, Anne Marie (Brown) Gazdik
Muriel and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you during this sad time
