My father taught his children how to love one another. He taught me as a child how to be a lady at all times. He was a great hunter and a great fishermen. He taught his sons how to fish and hunt. He was a very good cook and taught me to cook. He was a loving husband and father. He is missed very deeply. Margarete (Beal) Brown

Louise Berger-Stephens

April 5, 1922-August 23, 2003

Everything I do in my life, I believe is guided by her touch and watched over by her spirit. I believe she smiles, cries and dreams with me.

Nanny was my only grandmother. I waited too long to tell her how I felt and learn all about her, and now, I have regrets and can't dig for enough information about her. I do believe she gives me strength when I am at my weakest points.

Dear Dad, I think about you every day and miss you very much. When I walk in the house I expect you to say, "It's about time you got here!" I Love you, T 

You came to watch us run in the Spring Lake Five several times. You loved the cookies they had for the runners. One year, you stuffed your shirt with as many as you could. I have the pictures to prove it! We laughed for days! We still laugh about it now. Love, Tina

Dolores r Mille

October 1, 1929 - January 25, 2006

The first hundred years are the hardest.

We were married 46 years. We had two children and one granddaughter who is just home from Iraq. William Miller, Sr. 

Michelle Alexis Morales

January 1985 - July 2003

Where hope grows, miracles blossom. 

Michelle had a kind, yet strong spirit. She had a loving heart, yet she did not know how she touched so many at a very early age. I never understood how someone so young could have such an impact on others, then she was taken away from us and it all became very clear. She was not born to here for too long, so she rushed through all the things she wanted to do. She was always in a hurry. I would say, Michelle, slow down, you have plenty of time and she would some times get angry with me. I just didn't know, but now I do, and I think, gee, I wish I had listen more and reacted less. She wise beyond her years, she was an old soul who came down to finish whatever unfinish business she had left behind, or to learn whatever lessons she had not learned from a previous life. Her soul knew and Michelle acted upon her gut feeling. I only wish I had known. What I do know, as I write down my thoughts, is that I am so glad she was my child. I am glad I had her for 18 years, I am so glad I was loved by such a amazing human being. I am glad I have such an advocate in heaven. I feel so blessed to have had such an amazing child.

Irene B. Morgen

October 19, 1913 - October 18, 2000

John Chap. 14 v. 2,3: In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 

The verse from the Gospel of John was my mother's favorite bible verse. Mom was the hardest working woman I ever knew, and she cared for her family with every ounce of her being. Her 86 plus years were filled with joy and sorrow, and her hands were gnarled with the labors that never ceased. When we said, "Mom, sit down and rest awhile" she would answer, "I'll rest when I'm dead." So, Mom, now, Rest in Peace with Jesus. Love, Ruth, John & Mark 

Tom Osborne

My mother was an aspiring and wise woman who loved life and loved me unconditionally.

Helen D. Reed

May 1925 - April 2004

But Those that wait upon the lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.

There are those in our lives that reach out to us with deep acts of kindness. They share with us the gift of their time, they listen, they say they care, and they give you words of encouragement.They are people like you who brings gifts of hope. A tender clasp of the hand and comforting hugs. But the most generous gift of all was knowing you. Thank you so much for opening your arms to me and making me feel welcome in the family, we will see each other in the kingdom of heaven one day. Love always, Naomi S. Reed

Richard Scott Schumann

June 3, 1986 - Feb 21, 2010

Some people walk into your life and leave as quietly as they came. Ricky, you walked into my life and left footprints on my heart that will never fade away.

I'll never forget when we first met, i was playing basketball at Woodlot Park. When I'm in south Brunswick I always pass by Woodlot and can"t help but think of all the memories we had there. You hold a very special place in my heart that no one can take. I'm greatful for every moment we shared together. I'll never forger you Ricky. You will always be in my heart! 

Gordon H. Stephens

November 13, 1915 - March 13, 1993

To the only man I call Pop-Pop, the stories of you are everlasting. I never realized how many lives a single man could change and affect. You were and always will be simply amazing.

He was my only Pop-Pop. His memories live on forever. He left so long ago and yet I still meet people now who knew him, loved him and admired him. The heart-warming stories make it seem like he's still alive and close by. I believe he is always near. I can see him in his brown sweater, white shirt, pocket full of pens, handkerchif in his hand, blue eyes staring at the Trentonian's sports section, his mouth playing with his dentures, and dinner time at the table in our row home in Trenton. I remember the old silver Ford stationwagon he used to drive me to school in every morning, the sweet little kiss goodbye and last but not least the 'dollar' he would pay me to help him clean. My mother so effortlessly helping him with his dinner plate, bathe and tuck him in in his weakest moments. Peacefulness in his body the morning he went with the Lord. But he's still here, I know it. I love you.

Russell R. Tessein

March 14, 1923 - March 15, 2008

Russell was everyone's friend. He is missed and loved by all. Shirley T. Kosztyu

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
