A neighbor for many years. Many times he would be taking a walk, and wave to me as I drove past him. Thinking of you and your family.

Our prayers are being lifted up for all the members of the Harold Kees Family. Don this is the time to recall that scripture says that when those that love the Lord are absent from the body and present with the Lord at their passing. I pulled the obit from Brown's on line on 9/3 and want you all to know that Jo and I both grieve with you.

Joyce and family
Sorry to hear the loss of your Dad, He and Your mother will be united again in heaven. They were such nice and kind to everyone.
I known your parents for a lot of years and I had the pleasure to meet you and your husband, in 20003 when I brought the house from you on Nadenbroush lane. You look so much like your mother Anna Mae.
May you have comfort knowing they are together again. Enjoy all the memories you made together over the year.
Thoughts and prayers for you and your family during this difficult time.
Gods love and blessings
