We send our deepest sympathies to Uncle Book’s entire family. We were so fortunate to have such a kind, generous, and loving Uncle. He always made us feel special and left us smiling. Our memories of Uncle Book will forever hold a very warm and tender place in our hearts. Much love to his family and anyone lucky enough to have called him a friend.
Love, Jim, Angela, and Laura Cottle

“Wolfie” was more than just a relative…he may have been small-in-size but BIG in heart! He walked me down the aisle when Paul and I got married and THAT started a friendship that lasted many many years. Memories?? WOW!! From cutting down trees to make way for the bulldozer he drove, to putting up the logs to build our log cabin. He was an amazing DIY man. Plowed fields to plant our potatoes, gathered hay for the horses, and fixed our cars when they broke down. BUT we just didn’t work. We had lots of fun times too!! Horse shows with Jamie, snow-tubing down the mountain, the special “throw-in-anything” soups made outside. Paul even shared Ray’s dog Frankie - staying between his house and ours. We live in Myrtle Beach now. We won’t make it to Pennsy. But, Helen and Jamie, we want you and your family to know – our hearts and thoughts will be with you. Wolfie will be greatly missed, but with so many wonderful memories, he will never be forgotten. We love you.
