Please take some time to visit these people:

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit and leave flowers for my relatives.

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4

"The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death." -Isaiah 57:1, 2

He'd be your 3rd g-uncle not your 3rd grandfather.

Archie and Mary Dykes
Hi! I notice that the obituary for Archie Dykes says he was survived by his wife, Mary. But their headstone indicates that she died first. Wonder how that mix up occurred? Do you know anything about this?
