We do not want to say “Goodbye,” that is too permanent and everlasting, so we will simply say “Goodnight.” When a parent says Goodnight they are assuring us that “I will watch over you until you awake and will keep you safe until I see you again.” So we will ask you to watch over each and every one of us until we leave this earth and awaken with you again.

Funeral services will be 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, August 28, 2013 in the Bradley Belltower Chapel with interment to follow at 12:00 noon in the West Lawn Cemetery, Henryetta, OK. Services are entrusted to the Bradley Funeral Service. Friends may send condolences to the family at
