Not sure what to say?

I remember Gale as an always jovial and mild person

To the family of Gale,
Your father was a mild and gentle acting man in our village. He was diligent about selling chicken pies for American Legion Post 544 Sandy Ridge ( they are delicious). We will miss his kind demeanor and orders for chicken pies. He continued to support our troops through his actions. He will be missed! God's blessings to all of you during this very sad time.

Gale was a friend, a mentor, partner, and advisor to me. He is one of a kind and can never be replaced.
Vickie and I send our condolences to the Millholen family and the extended family as well.
Gale will be missed but will always be remembered.
John and Vickie Moore

My deepest sincere condolences for your family. Gale was one of the good guys. The ties that bind us will only continue to get stronger through the years. One day we will also find our place along with Gale in heaven

Gale, you will be missed so very much by not only your family but we in the Combat Veterans Support Group. You always joined in at our meetings and we felt blessed by your presence. And we know the men in the Hospice unit at the VA hospital appreciated you visits and sharing, as well as listening to them, the memories our your time defending our beloved America. You are one of the Greatest Generation and we will never forget what you sacrificed for our freedoms. Our hearts and prayers go to...

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

Papa was very special, he always had an open heart and kind words of wisdom.

My friend, I will miss you as I'm sure many others will also. We had some very memorable times together, I will never forget the night we took my boat down the ICW to that remote boat yard; No moon, No lights and a tide so high we had to contend with floating islands of grass and debris, but your sense of humor could only let you complain about the cheese we had for dinner. You were the best of the best. God's speed and may you have a grand arrival at your destination of choice. My friendship...

Dear Mary & Gerry & Bill,
So sorry to hear of your Dad's death. He was quite a guy, the boys remember him well. He always reminded me of his time in Nebraska. He and Cloid were buddies. He is with Mary J. & Cloid now. He had a good long life, & remember well the trip we had with them. So glad that we got to go back there once anyway. Our love to all of you, thinking of you. And maybe later in Nebraska
Gwen, Trent, Kirby & Theron

Times has a way of slipping away & our loved ones are gone. That is the way life is. All our best,
Gwen & boys, Trent, Kirby & Theron
