Father, your story will live on through us children. You'll never be forgotten; you'll always be missed. You taught us great lessons: always be prepared, kill them with kindness, and never give up on your dreams.'

You could always take a bad situation, and turn it into a positive. I will always remember your smile and laughter. Your humor took us through good times and bad, and you were always the optimist for us all. You will be missed.

I will always remember their kindness to me
Dolores Denson Rawson, Family
I remember the three months I spent in Washington D,C, doing an internship at Coe College and Steve and Charlotte took me on three day trips to introduce me to the area. I will always remember their kindness to me. This was back in l982 and every time I think of D.C. I automatically connect Steve and Charlotte to that time. Thanks to you both.
