Memories & Candles
I was so startled to see a death date for your dad while doing research on ancestry.com. I just finished watching your beautiful video tribute to him and want to let you know how sorry we are to hear of your loss. I recently came into possession of several pictures from Grandpa Read's ancestors and am hoping to find a way to mail them to you. Please contact me at my e-mail address above or at 925/683-2501 to get me an address please. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Dad, today we had your service, we all were there with family and friends. Jim and Audrey were there too and Jim is so lost knowing he will not be able to drive over to visit you anymore. Its just so hard Dad. Still can't believe your gone, as I looked at you laying there today you looked so peaceful and knew it was final. Letroy was there he is still in disbelief, he is such a caring loving person,

Knowing that Grandpa's spirit has returned home and is now again with Grandma brings peace to my mind.
Seeing the fine characteristics of Grandpa shining through in my family brings joy to my heart.
I love each and everyone of you, past and present.
