Thoughts from Yvonne Borreson in memory of her Mother, Irene Losinski.
"She & Dad raised 6 kids. She had a joy of cooking and baking and loved gathering family and friends at her table. A large garden and many flower beds were her pride and joy, along with sewing many of our clothes. Mom's collection of recipes were published into a family cookbook. God blessed us, with her life of 99 1/2 years! A live well lived & cherished."
Teresa Cain has great meories of her son, John Lyle Cain.
"He had such an incredible smile. A smirk that you couldn't be mad at. He also had a great love for his dog "KC."
Jodi Dougherty shared these thoughts on her loved one, Steven Dougherty.
“Steve will always be remembered by his family, friends, and coworkers for his gentle smile, his genuine care and concern, his calm and quiet demeanor, his conviction to always do the right thing, and his resolve and determination to be his very best in everything he did. He was an example and inspiration to many. Steve could tell a great story and never omitted any small details. We greatly miss him.”
Duane Fait shared this loving message about his wife, Margaret (Margie) Fait.

Catherine Gearing's special memory of Willie / Dad / Papa.
“Willie loved life, laughter, family, and friends. He was a man greatly admired by all who knew him. He had a terrific sense of humor and an infectious laugh that made everyone smile. Willie had a deep love for his family and friends - everyone was his ‘favorite’.”
Special poem shared by Basil Holder in memory of Iris McGhee Holder.
When Great Souls Die
When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile. We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly, see with a hurtful clarity. Our memory suddenly sharpened, sharpened, examines, gnaws on kind words unsaid, promised walks never taken.
And when great souls die, after a period, peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed.
Lita M. Lopez shared this memory of Commander Raymond L. Lopez.
"The leader who molded, mentored, guided, and always sharing the warmth of his hugs. Copious amounts of memories. Ride on our dear friend."
Sue Knutson shared her memory of her parents, Bob and Bonnie Byom.
