  1. I am happy to see that my birth father found happiness and built a live of joy and memories with Debra, Alisha, Zachary and Zane. Although he chose to never be a part of my life, having left his first family fifty years ago, it eases that pain to see that he was surrounded by those who so obviously loved him for the last thirty years. So sorry for your loss.

  2. We are so sorry for your loss Debbie and family.
    Sincerely, Don & Judy Gray
