RIP Dad, I want to thank you 1 last time for everything you have done for me. I am the man I am today because of you. You taught me to hunt & fish, you taught me to work on me own vehicles, you taught me that hard work always pays off and you taught me to love unconditionally. You also taught me to put family above all. You will live on through me as I raise my children they way you raised me. I love you and will never forget you. RIP

I worked with Leroy at NPP and Supply. I haven’t forgotten the good times we had there and the BSing we did in the mornings before work started. You were a good friend! I have thought of you many times over the last few years. I remember my children would call you Santa and that you always made me think of Eeyore, serious and never in a hurry. So sorry for your loss Julia.

I’ll always remember Mr. Cunningham as being a very kind and funny man when we were kids hanging out together. My thoughts are with you, Bill & Shelly, as well as Mrs. Cunningham, during this very difficult time.
