Your orneriness will definitely be missed. So many memories at Spring Creek, Clogging, Holiday celebrations and on and on. We love you and Betty like you are our family even though you're my brother's wife's family. We all just fit together. I know Pam loved her Daddy. Thankful you're in a much better place now. Keep my Mama company. So many years....🙏🙏🙏

Dear Betty & Ross Family .... I am so sorry to hear of John's passing, but I know he is happy and healthy again and being his ornery self. I have so many fond & special memories of John & Betty through out the years. John was always smiling and laughing and loved to cook cpq au vin at the cabin for the Umbargers and guests. May the many special memories you made through out the years help bring a small smile through the tears. Sending Love and Virtual hugs Sweet Betty, and may you find strength in family and friends during this sad and difficult time.

Uncle Roy, I will miss you so much! I’ll miss your hugs and your sense of humor! I’ll always remember you giving Eddie a hard time about his Springfield shotgun. 🤣 You loved that thing, for some reason! 🤪 I love you and miss you, but know that your mind and body are whole once again! And that is the best thing ever. Your niece, Debbie ♥️
