In Memory


In loving memory of Lewis Allen Ramsey on his birthday and Christmas - December 15, 1953 - August 28, 1999:

After years and years, moment to moment, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Through guilt and sorrow and the pain of truth, not a minute goes by without me missing you. If I close my eyes I see yours. I remember how you smile and the edges would wrinkle up like neatly folded creases of time. Your laugh still grabs me as it resounds through my head as the loud and exuberant as ever. Although life has gone on and change comes almost regularly, I picture you in my mind and I feel certain this image won't ever fade.

This imprint you left on me is the most wonderful part of who I become, and as I experience life's changes, you can bet I'll be taking you with me everywhere I go.

Love and miss you,



In memory of Shirley Parsons: Dear Mother,

My mind often wanders back to the times when we would all gather to swim at Mom Knepper's and spend time with many family members on Sunday afternoons.

I fondly remember our family camping trips, summer beach excursions and holiday celebrations with lots of family. I imagine how you would be bustling during the Christmas season. You would be anxious to put up new holiday decorations and bake our favorite Christmas cookies. Somehow I still expect to see you making something wonderful in your kitchen. I still imagine talking to you on the phone every day.

The hoidays, the celebrations and everything in between just aren't the same without you. You would be proud to know that your granddaughter has inherited your cooking and baking skills.

Merry Christmas, Mother. We miss you.

Love, Your family


In loving memory of Kay Seville: We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And days before that too We think of you in silence We often speak your name Gratefully we have memories And your picture in a frame Your memory is our keepsake With which we'll never part God has you in His keeping We have you in our hearts. Our love forever, Russ Shawn and Ethan Kimberly, Brian and Cabe Cole and Jen
