    For 57 years we have been best buds who were always there for each other and you cannot ever be replaced. No one will ever know or understand everything we had or all we did together. Will be joining you again in awhile and we will start all over. Love you my friend Mitch

    R.I.P., Ward. I’m so glad we were friends. You were a great person, someone I always could count on, and I will miss all of our conversations. I was looking forward to seeing your home, but, sadly you were called home to Heaven. You truly were one of a kind, honest and a man of good morals and great knowledge. I will miss you, my friend….. Erin
