Our prayers and thoughts are with you. We love you. Marsha & Frank Carr, March 25, 2009 To the family, I am a friend of Bob and Donna's, I love the time when I met your parents. Your mother was very friendly and made my son feel like he was welcome and one of the family. Your father was funny and told great jokes. They were both warm and caring people. I'm sorry that you have lost both of your parents in such a short period of time. But they were good people and have rasied very good children. I hope that you know your parents are back together and are doing fine. Remember the good times and what they had done for you instead of the bad times. Lanna Charles, March 25, 2009 Dear Adrienne, We were only privileged to meet you father and mother once. I remember how they made us feel so welcome in their home when we were visiting you and Stan. We know you will miss him so very much and we offer all our love and prayers to you in the sad and traumatic time in your life. Tom & Betty Heintz, March 25, 2009 My Father was a loving, caring person. He was married for 52 years to my Mom, Estelle Brennan. Dad loved spending time with us kids. When we were little, he especially liked getting us into the Soap Box Derby. He enjoyed helping us build our cars and it thrilled him to see us race down the hill. My Dad took pride in taking care of our home. He liked working in the yard. Every Saturday morning, he’d be out mowing the lawn, and cleaning the pool. As we grew up, Dad especially enjoyed having family over for the Holidays. He was a caring person that would do anything for us kids, no questions asked. Dad loved watching sports on TV. He was a die hard Eagles fan. He liked nothing more than to se the Eagles beat up on the Cowboys. The last 3 years were tough for Dad; he took care of our Mom, who suffered from Alzheimer’s. That’s a 24/7 job! That’s where his loving care showed the most. He was right there beside her ‘til the end. To sum it up, there was not a more caring person on this Earth, than my Dad. I love you with all my heart. Your little girl and daughter, Adrienne PS: I’ve leaving a heartfelt note about my Mother on her page as well. Adrienne Estelle Henkle, March 24, 2009
