Carrie, I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed your stories of your Dad, including your spot on imitation. I felt like he was an old friend thanks to your stories and "Dadisms". I know your Mom was waiting for him and the two of them are together again. Love you,

Always quick with a wave and a smile from across the street, generous with the bounty of your garden, and kind conversations come to mind. You were a wonderful neighbor. Rest In Peace with your beloved Sharon.

Joe, we have known you since our kids were babies, we remember your vegetable garden and you and your brothers having a real good time digging that patch, and our girls picking your tomatoes, we have had many good times reminiscing of you chasing Andrea around the house and couldn't catch her, she could take those corners closer than you and she never got caught. You will be missed, our hearts are saddened by your leaving, we love your girls, and their names are in our hearts, we know Sharon is waiting for you to give you a good haircut and trim, love you both so much, the Lallier Family.❤❤❤❤❤❤
