    The death of someone close to us leave us shocked with grief. We cannot understand how one minute this person was here and the next they are gone. The truth is that those we love are never truly gone. The body may have run its course, but the soul lives forever.

  • Dr. Dan Czelatdko I wish to give my sincere condolences to Carole and her family. I have known Skip for many years and he always made me laugh when I saw him. His funny comments and teasing were his method for communicating. He loved to be teased as well and was good at taking a joke. He will certainly be missed by my staff and I. I pray for comfort for his family and know that Skip is in a better place breathing free and without pain.
