To all my friends in the Sorensen family, I want to extend my most sincere condolences. I have so many happy memories of the fellowship I shared with the family. You made me an "Honorary" family member as I shared so many birthday parties at each of your homes. I wish it were possible to be there and share with you but Texas is just too far away. Please know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May God's blessing be with you in the coming days. You are loved Don&Shirley

To the family of Leroy,

You have all lost a wonderful man. But, I am sure you know that. I knew him during the few years I worked at GTE. He was a skilled and busy worker. He was honest and humble. I remember constantly reminding him that he looked like John Denver. He would just smile back at me. Good guy. Jim Lynch.
