Mrs. Kerr was an amazing woman in and out of the classroom. I was blessed to have had her as my English teacher at Blackhawk. I still have a love of poetry thanks to her. We also volunteered at the track meets after school. It was always a blessing to talk with her about her travels to Puerto Rico and her many social activies. I will always remember her for loving and caring ways. Mr. Kehr, I am so sorry for her passing and prayers and hugs for you during this time!! 💖💖😔💖

I send my sincere condolences to the Davis family on the loss of Paul. He was a good friend of mine in high school and even stayed with me for a short time in Florida while relocating. He introduced me to a lot of cool music and media, which had a lasting effect on my life beyond high school by influencing the places I hung out and the friends I made. He passed much too young and he will be missed. I am very sorry for your loss.

My sincerest condolences, thoughts & prayers.

I have recollections of good fun & vibes, laughter and kindness spending the occasional time with Chuck (Chucky), and that smile of his, as a youth, teenager and the rare few times since then. He always seemed to make ya' feel at home, freely accepted & looked out for.

Much love & sorrow to all the family & friends,

Brent Kredel

I'm at a loss for words, my heart aches for you and your family. At a point in our lives we were in separable. Although our lifes took different paths, I've always loved you and hoped for the very best for you. You were the most loyal and loving friend. I will always be thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know you and to call you a friend. I will cherish your memory for years to come. Rest in peace sweet angel.

Ron, I was so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. Her obituary was spot on: she was a woman who cherished her family, and it was evident to all. I hope that you and your family find some comfort in knowing that her spirit lives in the memories of many others, like me.

So very sorry for your loss.
I have such fond memories of Marty from St. Mary’s and being at the Mendiicino home growing up. You are blessed to have had him in your lives and to have called him husband, dad, pap, uncle, cousin and friend. May his memory remain eternally in your hearts.
With love and prayers,
