Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Joe & Becky, My sympathys go out to you and your family at this time. Ms Danchak lived a long and wonderful life. She is in the arms of Jesus waiting for the two of you to join her. God Bless.

  2. We extend to you our sympathy at the death of your mother and grandmother. Carrie was a delight to know. We attended MacArthur Park with her and visited several times with her in her apartment. The last time we were over there was during the Christmas Holidays and she wanted to stay down in the foyer and enjoy the beautiful decorations and also treat us to refreshments in the coffee room. We were always amazed that at her age she was “up on the going ons” in the world and the church. We tried to talk to her on the telephone but it became impossible for her to understand us. Please know that we are thinking of you at this time.

  3. Joe Wayne, Becky, Mike, Sharon and family: We were so sorry to hear of your loss. Carrie was a wonderful person and faithful Christian. We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Mike, Sharon, Joe Wayne, and Becky, My sympathy to you in your loss. Among many fond memories of growing up in Pearsall are recollections of your mom and dad, and the example they set as a loving, committed, Christian couple. I remember your dad’s line about meeting your mother, something about “I met my million dollar baby in a 5 & 10 cent store”, which I think was an old song. It’s a difficult time, but without doubt, your parents are in the perfect heaven with a perfect savior.
