E, obituaries


  1. I am sorry for the loss of Everett. I’m always going to remember him on the old family farm and all holiday meals with the extended family.

  2. It is always sad to hear of loved ones passing. I will always and have always thought of Everett with smiles and laughter. I enjoyed him and the farm very much.
