In Loving Memory of Ricky Scheer
Jan.24, 1981 - Oct.16, 1997 
Our Precious Ricky, 
In the rising of the sun and in its going down, we remember you. 
In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember you. 
In the warmth of the sun and the peace of summer, we remember you. 
In the rustling of the leaves and the beauty of autumn, we remember you. 
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember you. 
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember you. 
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember you. 
When we have joys we yearn to share, we remember you. 
So long as we live, you too shall live, for you are now a part of us, as we remember you. 
With love, Mom and Dad Mike, Janelle, Natalie, Jay and Kevin

In Memoriam Daniel E. Eshbaugh
Oct.16, 1941 - March 30, 1998 
Happy Birthday, Dan 
Time for that bike ride.
Your Cannondale bike is ready, the weather is great.
The scenery beautiful.
Don't forget to stop for that hamburger. 
Life is filled with wonder and death is not something to be frightened of, but rather the one who taps you on the shoulder and asks for the last waltz. 
Twirling you away in the final dance of life. 
All our love, Bernadine, family and friends 
P.S. Don't forget the flowers
