Guest Book Highlights

October 26, 2016 "To the family,

The swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all.-Ecclesiastes 9:11" - Mia (TX)
October 22, 2016 "PEACE and COMFORT TO ONE" - Valenda Newell (Indianapolis, IN)
September 13, 2016 "I'm so sorry that I never had the opportunity of meeting you, Max. Our families have something in common. My sister, Carol, died of Ewings sarcoma when she was fifteen and I was thirteen. After diagnosis and treatment she lived for eight months. Perhaps you will meet and then join the troupe of angels that preceded you both. Bless you in your new adventure." - Grace Cafaro (Staten Island, NY)
September 02, 2016 "Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always." - (GA)
