Not sure what to say?

Dear Pearl,

My thoughts are with you and all of your family.

LaRene (Anderson) McHugh ( LaVern Anderson's Daughter)

Dear David, Steve and Ballot Family:
Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Father.
It's been a while since we've been in touch but know that I'm thinking and praying for all of you. The loss of a parent is no easy process so be prepared to face a few tough days ahead. It does get better.
(I can still picture your folks with Jr. and Helen Graul.) Bless all of you.

My condolences to the Ballot/Graul families . I have many fond memories of Cookie going back to my childhood and especially all the times he and Pearl frequented Debs by the Lake. Charles LOVED his deserts and as much as Pearl fussed at him, he adored her even more! They were fun and 2 of my favorite customers! I am certain he is already causing laughter and havoc in the great beyond! He will be truly missed.

Many Blessings to a wonderful family and to a man who seems to have lived a tremendous life! If Bryan is any reflection of his father, there is no doubt he was a very loved and cherished man!

Dear Aunt Pearl,

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Memories of Uncle Cookie are lasting for us,and we wish good memories of him for you and his family to help during this time.


Bryan, I had the pleasure of meeting your parents when your dad and my husband shared a room at Memorial Hospital. It was one of those odd coincidences that happen, but a pleasure. I extend my sympathies to you and your family. Take care. See you at the next class reunion.

As a former employee of Magna's audit department, I will always have fond memories of Chuck's wit and humor; but mostly his compassion and professionalism. My deepest sympathy to his family and may your memories ease your pain at this difficult time.


my sympathies. I have fond memories of you and Chuck in the pacemaker clinic at Scott AFB. My prayers for you.

Sella Roman

Pop will be greatly missed!! My deepest sympathies to the family and friends.
