Dear Matt and Sam. I just now saw your Dad's obit and I am so sorry! He was such a good and Godly man. I'm sure he was proud of you both. Miss Martha (from the library). Take care and God Bless!

Dear Family, We have only known your dad through Kevin's marriage to Samantha, but if a man is to be judged by his children, your dad was a fine man. Glenn & Pat Kreider
