Dennis and Family:

Please accept our prayers and sympathy with the passing of your mother. Dennis, I helped recruit you to The College of Wooster and have great memories of you as an outstanding athlete and person.

Denny and Deb,
I was sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was a wonderful lady.
I have many fond memories of her, and I particularly enjoyed sharing breakfast with her and Denny in Dalton several years ago.
May all of your memories help you celebrate her life.

We’re so sorry to hear of your loss, Deb, and we pray for God’s tenderest comfort for you and all of your loved ones. In just a few little visits in your home, it always seemed to me that your mom truly treasured you; and I’m sure you treasured her.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. While I was doing some genelogical research this evening on Owen Palmer Bricker (Joann's father - whom I was named after, and came upon the notice. I meet Joann and Don when I was 15 at there home, she was a very caring and sensitive person. It was the only time which I got to meet my great uncle Owen Bricker, great uncle Arthur, and great aunt Rachel. My great grandmother, Mary Lucindia Bricker (1899–1975) was Owen Bricker (1903-1988) and Arthur Bricker (1908-1985) sister. I did find a newspaper clipping from Page 3, of Daily Globe, published in Shelby, Ohio on Wednesday, July 6th, 1949, titled "Hold Shower for Joanne Bricker" which she celebrated her engagement to Don with some of her family and close friends. http://marvin.advantage-preservation.com/Viewer/?k=owen&i=f&d=01011862-1...
