Memories Timeline


  1. I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Poe’s passing. I didn’t meet him until 2018 when my grandfather, Claude spent some time at Pinelake/Peak Resources after a fall (he and Mr. Poe had known each other for a long time already) but he was one of the kindest and happiest people I’ve ever met. I know he will be missed by all who knew him.

  2. To the family: Sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love,
    Harold, Pat, &Misty Clark
