Memories Timeline


  1. The Ince family. . . what a special “brand” they are! Our families share so many memories in Church, sports, Grey Y, babysitting, printing. . . Beth babysat me when I was 7 or so and made home made Barbie Doll clothes for me. . . I thot she was magical! I still have them today! She sat in the announcers booth with Dad during Little League games and did they ever have their laughs. Mike and Tom were in the same Grey Y group and I think a lot of those “kids” stay in touch today – all the families became very close. We all walked to St. Andrews to hear Rev. Cox preach for years and our parents were in the same First Watch Sunday School group. We are so thankful that Sonshine Printing has taken such good care of all our printing needs
    for so many years. It was always such a treat to drop off or pick up jobs as that ment I’d get caught up with John & Mike – always leaving a smile on my face and a lighter step in my walk. Life truly is about Moments NOT things. . . that’s how they’ve lived their lives. Now as John has gone to meet our maker . . . I’m sure Jimbo was there with an outstretched arm welcoming him. John you will truly be missed.
