Guest Book

Pam I am so very sorry for your loss. I have known JJ since he was stationed here in the Navy and worked for Wilshire, Wainright, Mathis and Ockey back in the late 60's. I know what you are going through and my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

From the time I knew him, he was such a nice guy! Prayers and Strength sent to the family.

I am so sorry to hear of Bub's passing. As a kid, I remember when he would come to Arkansas to visit. I thought he was one of the "coolest" guys, especially when he came on his motorcycle! Jeannine....Rusty... you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Bub and I graduated high school together. He was such large part of our lives then and even though thousands of miles separated us, he was still part of us. We take comfort that he found Pam and was able to live his life fully to the end. May The Lord bless you and keep you. Barbara Grimes Lewis

To Pam - He was Uncle Bub to me and I always loved his sense of humor and his wonderful laugh. Never had the opportunity to spend much time with him over the years but knew that he cared about me and our family. He loved my mom, his only sister Verna, and they had a great relationship. I'm glad that he had you with him at the end and I am sure that he treasured his time with you. We've never met but I hope that we can remedy that someday. May God be with you and all of Uncle Bub's friends...

Pam, I just learned of JJ's passing. I
am so very sorry. I would very much
like to talk with you on my next trip
to Hanford, which will be the week after
Mother's Day.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

In the short time we knew JJ, we came to realize what a gentle, caring man he was. He loved to joke and always was a gentleman. He will be missed. So sorry for your loss and we are glad you are back in Hanford.

Pam, there are never words for losses like this. I an truly sorry. My prayers for you and your family.
