In Loving Memory of

Michael Anthony Sanderson Sr.

June 8, 1956 to January 19, 2000

The Twenty-Third Psalm

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Been missing you for 21 years. 

Love your kids,
Michael Jr., Jenny, Jeremy, & Jill

In loving memory of our dear mother, Blanche Naffziger, who passed away January 7, 1999, 22 years ago.

It’s been twenty two years since you went away, but deep in our hearts it seems like yesterday. God wanted you in Heaven, so he came and took you home. You now walk the streets of gold and see where angels roam. I miss you so much mom, but I will see you again.

Sadly missed by 

Children & Grandchildren

In loving memory of our husband, father, grandpa, great-grandpa, and great-great-grandpa, who went to his heavenly home one year ago on January 8, 2020.

We think of you with love today

but that is nothing new.

We thought about you yesterday

and the day before that too.

We think of you in silence,

we often speak your name.

All we have are memories

and your picture in a frame.

Our memories are our keepsakes

with which we’ll never part.

God has you in His keeping,

we have you in our hearts.

Loved and missed by wife, Delores, daughters and sons, grandchildren, great-grandachildren and great-great-grandchildren.

In loving memory

October 9, 1933- January 4, 2004

What makes a Dad?

God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea.

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagle’s flight.

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need.

God combined these qualities,

And there was nothing more to add,

He knew His masterpiece was complete,

And so He called it DAD!

It’s been 17 years, but we still miss you and think of you every day.

Love, your family

In loving memory of my beloved dad, Jay Cramer, who passed away from cancer 15 years ago on December 18, 2005. Almost every day, something reminds me of you – something I hear, something I see, something. Sometimes the memory makes me cry and sometimes it makes me smile. I’m so happy to have these memories. I love you with my whole being, Dad. You’ll always be my Papa Smurf.


Your daughter Robin

In loving memory of my dear friend, Barb VanHouten, who went to be with her beloved Lord and other family members who passed away before her, on November 5, 2009. I don’t know where the past 11 years have gone, but I miss you more than ever, dear Barb. I visit your grave and look at your beautiful face and I weep. You were such a joy to be around, and I could share everything and anything with you. No judgement, just unconditional love. The way friends should be. I miss our shopping trips, our birthday celebrations, our chats on the phone, our everything. Rest easy, my sweet Barbarino.

Your friend, Robin

In Loving Memory of our Mother


March 18, 1939 – September 1, 2019

A gentle wind blew across the land

Reaching out to take a hand.

For on the winds, the angels came

Calling out a mother’s name.

Left behind, the children’s tears

Loving memories of the years.

Of joy and love, a life well spent

And now to God, a mother’s sent.

On angel’s wings, a heavenly flight

The journey home, towards the light.

To those who weep, a life is gone

But in God’s love, ’tis but the dawn.

Missing from our lives for a year, such a short time but it seems forever. We look forward to a family reunion one day in Heaven.

A special note of apology for the pain caused by our Mother’s obituary not including James and Janice Westphal’s name. In our grief we did not realize their names were omitted until months later.
