Larry and family,
We were saddened to hear of Roland’s passing. Morley told us last night at Wendy’s art opening. I tried to call you, but the number isn’t working. We would love to see you. Our deepest sympathy.

Lee, So very sorry to hear of your dad’s passing.. He was a wonderful man and a great father to you… so sorry…..
It was my parents’ pesanorl choice that they be cremated instead of being buried. The cost was under $ 1000 at that time (2004 in Daytona Beach).You don’t have to pay for a funeral since many funeral directors obviously want to give the impression that you owe it to your loved ones to provide the best service which in the end only services the funeral business. Cremation is one option.If you want the traditional funeral, many casket manufacturers such as the Batesville Casket Company offer a payment plan similar to buying any commodity such as car for example. Check with your funeral home for details.
Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my ipnhoe during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, wonderful site!
My condolences to your family.
I have many fond memories of Mr. Longtin-he was my French teacher at Lansing High School during the 60’s. He was a great teacher with a fantastic sense of humor.
