I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a nice man. Of course I haven't seen him for almost 40 years. We were just the neighbor brats down the road. He will be missed. Roxanne Stone(Peterson)

Dear Kim, I am so sorry for your lost. It has been way to long since we have seen each other. Imagine my shock when I read about Mike in the paper. I was just talking about you to Edie and Dave Tucker and we were all wondering where you were living. This is not the way I wanted to find out, but at least I know where you are. Please contact me at 574-232-5267 anytime. I am layed off and I'm usually home or will get your message. I still live out here in Crumstown. Miss you and my prayers are with you.

Good afternoon. Condolences are extended to passing of Mr. James Boocher. My heart felt condolences is extended to the Boocher Family at your hour of bereavement on your tremendous loss. Death Is Only A Part Of Life We enter this world from "THE GREAT UNKNOWN" And GOD gives each SPIRIT a form of its own And endows this form with a heart and a soul To spur man on to his ultimate goal.... For all men are born to RETURN as the CAME And birth and death are in essence the same And man is but born to die and arise For beyond this world in beauty there lies The purpose of death which is but to gain LIFE EVERLASTING in GOD'S GREAT DOMAIN.... And no one need make this journey alone For GOD has promised to take care of HIS own. With Deepest Sympathy, CydCharisse Capron Warehouse Manager Supply Chain Management Kerzner International
