Karen, I don’t know what it’s like to lose a father but I definitely know how it feels to lose a parent. I am sooo sorry for you and your family. I know how much it meant to me that you were there when my mom passed and if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. There are no words that can take the hurt away but I always found comfort in knowing that my mom was no longer suffering with her diabetes anymore. I know she’s in heaven now!!!

Judy and Family,
We worked with Buel at PPG. What a wonderful man. He was always so willing to teach you the easiest way to do a job and so kind to fix your mistakes if you didn’t understand the process. He always had a wonderful outlook on life and made you feel better just for knowing him. You have our deepest sympathy.
