My sincere condolences to classmate & friend, Charlie Pete, and to Carol Ann.
Many of us knew Mrs. Irvin well from the dentist office.
She was a warm, friendly person, and a GREAT friend of my parents for many, many years. May she rest in peace.

We have fond memories of your parents. Your dad was always so gentle with our kids back in the 60s, and they looked forward to the trinket from his box.
What a long life for your mother.
We are thinking of you at this sad/happy time.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of both of your parents and from the time Joe and I lived in their little house for six years before building our house on Orchard St. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Pete, I have such great memories of Lenora and Doc. The Shriners Circus in Indianapolis for your early Birthday on April Fools day sometime in the 40's, my first water surfboarding behind your boat, shuffleboard in your basement, the Crosley Hotshot, that horrible drill in the second story Dental office downtown, turning our class rings silver with the liquid Mercury from the Dental office and many other family outing at an Indiana lake. People leave us but memories last for ever. My condolences are sincerely expressed for your loss. I'm glad to have known them. Jim
