DREYER -- HENRY WILLIAM "HANK" DREYER June 3, 1924 - May 9, 2005 Happy Father's Day and belated Happy Birthday I want you to know how thankful I am to have you as my Dad. I am grateful for all the wisdom you gave me about life and for the things you taught me to make me an independent person. I will always treasure my memories of you, like the songs you'd sing to us or play on a harmonica or even pick out on a guitar. Also, how much you loved your cabin, hunting and fishing. You were the person everyone liked, especially my boyfriends. I couldn't compete with you. But you were always there to rescue me when I needed it and you kept my electronics running. I miss your sparkling green eyes, your warm smile, your sense of humor and your laugh. I miss your love. It has only been a short time since you left us and I think of you all the time. I imagine that you are with Holly and your brothers and sisters, probably playing horseshoes or poker and having a great time. Know that I love you very much and that you will always be in my heart. From your daughter "Number 1", Sabra

She loved the outdoors with a passion and her garden was her cathedral where she always felt closer to God. Mrs. Graves moved to Village at Skyline in Colorado Springs in 2002. While there, she made many new friends, played bridge and continued her love of flowers by keeping her deck blooming with seasonal arrangements.
