    I am so sorry for your loss.

  4. Monte Lawrence

    Dad, I will miss you for the short time we’ll be apart. I’m happy for you because you are where the rest of us will be going someday and have got to finally meet Mary, Joseph, Jesus and God as you prayed so long for. Dad, my faith in God is stronger because of you and because of that I know you are in a beautiful place. I want you to know we did everything possible for you in your last months so that you would be able to go to Jesus in peace. I hope you are pleased.
    With all my love and may peace be with you.

  5. Beverly Petrucci  (Erickson) & Vernon & Verna Eric

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad passing. We’ve known your family for so many years. My dad and your dad used to spend so many hours in the “garage”. Even my kids know about the “garage”. I remember when you first moved in. Your family would sit in the back porch and your dad would play the guitar. Everybody would have so much fun! That’s the image I will remember when I think of “Mr. Lawerence”.

  6. Beverly Petrucci (Erickson) Vernon & Verna Erickso

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad passing. We’ve known your family for many years. My dad and your dad spent many hours in the “garage”. My kids even know about the “garage”. It was a place the men could go to laugh and tell tales. I remember when you first moved in. Your family would sit in the back porch and Howie would play his guitar and sing. Everybody would have such fun! I can still see him sitting there with his black glasses and his big smile. That’s the image I will remember when I think of him.
    I already signed this guest book before, but it looks like it didn’t take so I’m doing it again.

  7. Sheila Lawrence

    Dad, may you rest in peace and go be with your family. You are in my prayers and thoughts. I Love You. Sheila

  8. Dewy & Patty Hickman

    Monte – we were so sorry to hear about your dad’s failing health and passing. Losing a parent is difficult, no matter how prepared you think you are. I know how important family is to you and how much you loved your dad. We are keeping you & your family in our prayers. You know you can call us, anytime, for anything. Love Dewy, Patty, Hayley & Robynn
