As much as we would love to see and visit with you to reminisce about a life well lived, these times of the new "normal" pose limitations and social distancing. Therefore please don't feel obligated to attend these services. Next summer there will be a burial service and a celebration where we would love for you to come to share a shot of bounce and the story of a life well lived.

Memorial donations are suggested to the Little Flower Building Fund, St. Vincent de Paul Society or Men's Club.

A celebration of life will be celebrated in larger fashion once the pandemic restrictions ease.
