Just wanted you to know that the services for Rex were wonderful. He was such a positive person and an inspiration to us all. I only hope that I may age with all the same dignity, grace, and the positive attitude that he had shown to all of us. I felt so "at home" in the church as both the memorial services for our mom and dad had been there. Rose and I both also received all the sacraments there when we were children and each of my children also recieved at least one of the sacraments there. I really felt at home. I know that Rex has gone home and that we will all go home one day. It is not a question of "if" but "when" and although I will miss Rex I have very good memories of him and his love for Rich and Rose and his over all love and respect of family and people around him. Love, Anita
