  • Gail Young says:

    Helen, Wanda and Chris- My deepest sympathy on hearing of Papa Young’s passing. He was the best father-in-law even an ex-in-law could have ever asked for. Kind-hearted, caring, funny and generous. He always made me feel as if I was special
    to him and he loved his grandkids no matter what. He didn’t say much, but he was full of meaning. My kids have lost a wonderful grandfather but we know he is at peace now. We will all miss him.

  • Grace and John Loeppky says:

    Chris was a wonderful friend. Our deepest sympathy and love go to Helen and the family.
