Register Book

  • We have so many happy memories of our friendship with you Halbrooks back in "The Good Old Days". We wanted you to know we are thinking of you and remembering Marcus. Bill Ward (Billy Van) comes to see us frequently after visiting his Brother, John. Usually he had seen Marcus, and he kept us up on Marcus activities. When he came last July 4th he told us that Marcus' health was failing fast. One of the downsides of old age is giving up old friends, and we are sad that Marcus is gone, but we are thankful we have his memory.
