Memories Timeline


  1. Dad, you left this world so peacefully. Today we celebrated your memory on what would have been your 97th birthday. You were a man who taught me so much about nature, and I learned about gardening by watching you. Mom misses you and we are there for her, sharing stories and memories, and laughing too. I will miss the \”puffs\” on the back porch, especially late at night. Tomorrow I will fill my bird feeders to be ready for the migrating birds, as I know you enjoyed seeing them. So, fly free now and take in the universe. Say hello to the family you will meet on your journey home. Vaya con Dios! Feliz cumpleanos ! Al is enjoying your radio. Jeanne

  2. Ronnie may God Bless you so very much. You might not remember me but you were the Secretary for Kentucky Central Life Insurance where I was worked when I got married in 1987. You were such a very kind lady to me. I pray for your comfort during this hour.

  3. Prayers for comfort to you Ronnie . Mario was a kind man to our family when we lived on Sutton Lane, Lancaster,Ky My son Tyler League enjoyed talking to him. He would tell him about the birds. Mario carved me a wood piece that I still have today. So sorry for your loss. May God Comfort you at this time of sorrow. Love, Lisa Greene

  4. Carolyn and I would like to send our deepest condolences. I got to know Mario when I lived in Danville. I have very fond memories of our conversations during Lenten fish fries at the church. He was a special man and I am glad to have known him. – Herb
