To the Hernandez Family. We are so saddened for the loss of your father. He was such a gentle and kind man. Your family has always meant so much to us. You babysit our boys for years and it was always such a comfort to know they were in a loving and caring home. I remember many of times after work we would come to get them and they wanted to stay. Our boys are grown now with families of their own but will always remember Aunt Ruth and Uncle George. Love

Lynda and Jerry Schultz and family.


The Hernandez Family, So sorry to hear of the death of you Dad and Grandpa Our Prayers are with you Father and all of you. God be with you,

Deacon Bob & Pauline
