    Uncle Freddy,

    I want you to know that I always thought of you as a great uncle. You always loved and appreciated the importance of “family.” You were a great brother to my mom and she really loved your phone calls and your daily chats. She would always share your chats and tell me what Midge, Robert, Kristin, Christal and Jackie were doing. Even though we didn’t see each other often I always felt connected because of those chats with “Sis.”

    Say hi to my mom and be at peace. Love, Linda

  9. To the Carley family;
    I remember your father coming to pick up your Mom from work. We’d go outside and talk about the new car, or what was new.
    What a nice, loving family you are to each other. Always talk about him, and remember that others will miss him, too. I pray you’ll find strength and comfort in this very sad time. God Bless all of you. He was a wonderful man.
    Sincerely, Susan & Tom Berrigan
