"Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well." Henry Scott Holland 1847-1918

Because I am a duck hunter I met a wonderful man at the duck club that I was able to join also when I would take him home I met a wonderful lady and they were much fun in my heart and in my soul that’s where they will stay.

I did not know either of these wonderful people but their obituary is the most incredible I have ever seen.

Dear Gardner Family- Frank and Shirley were such a big part of my life since I was 13! Tons of memories in Woodland! Snapshots of a great life. You will always be so special to me. Your family will live on with parts of both in so many ways. I see them in you all. Love you - Susie Lopez
