So very sorry to hear of your loss. He was so hard working, always smiling and would talk to you and was very helpful with repair work. He will be truly missed. Mrs. Strickland, we also love you. You are kind and helpful and helped keep Mr. Strickland so much in his shop. You were his strength and rock.
We are so sorry. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
An amazing man, always will remember him and his witty sense of humor. Our prayers are with your family.
We are moving Cheyenne to college this weekend or we’d come and pay our respects. He will be dearly missed.
Ron and I are sorry to hear about Strick. I always loved stopping by for a visit. He was such a kind man and will be missed by many. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
Our condolences to Frances and all the family. I found the stories Frances shared about her Daddy to be quite entertaining. God bless.
