They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill. If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane. I'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at 3:00 PM in the First Baptist Church of Calvert County, 155 German Chapel Road, Prince Frederick, MD with Pastor Ralph Nevin officiating. Interment will be private.

Should friends desire memorial contributions may be made in Bryce’s memory to:

Birth: 1931-05-31 in Bel Alton, Maryland
Residence: La Plata, Maryland
Death: Wednesday, August 04, 2010
Laid to Rest: Monday, August 16, 2010 in the Maryland Veterans Cemetery, Cheltenham, Maryland

Click to see full size photoIt is with great sadness that the family of Robert A. “Cheese” Jameson, age 79, of La Plata, Maryland, announces his passing on Wednesday, August 4, 2010 at the Civista Medical Center in La Plata. Cheese was born on May 31, 1931 in Bel Alton to the late Leon Francis and Madeline Bailey.

Cheese was raised on the Equality Farm in Faulkner where he raised tobacco and a variety of vegetables and livestock. He loved working on and studying antique cars, boating and being on the water, and fishing or gardening whenever he could. He was quite the wheel man and always had to be the driver whenever he went somewhere. He hated being the passenger and would wear out the “brakes” on that side. He loved to spend time with his family and was often eager to host family gatherings and weekly dinners at his house. Cheese and Millie would often take trips from Maine to Florida and Maryland to California, seeing all they could in between.

He graduated from Sacred Heart School in 1950 and after graduation drove the school bus for them while he worked on the family farm. Shortly after, he served a four year stint in the United States Army before returning home to join the Charles County Sheriff’s Office in 1957. Proudly wearing the number 10, only the third number assigned in the department, Cheese was a Deputy Sheriff’s Officer who did everything alongside his best friends and fellow officers. In the later part of his career he was in charge of Corrections and Civil Processing until his retirement as Sergeant in 1977. He then went on to work as a salesman for the Besche Oil Company and sold cars for Joe Monroe Automotive in La Plata. He finished his working career as a Lieutenant for the Indian Head Naval Ordinance Station Police Department in Indian Head. He retired in 1995 when he and Millie decided to take some time for themselves to travel and spend more time with their family and friends. He remained active in the Fraternal Order of Police, Francis C. Garner Lodge #24, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office Retired Officers Association and the Charles County Republican Party.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Mildred Gene “Millie” Jameson, his parents, Leon Francis and Madeline Bailey and his sons, William Lee and Robert Charles Hicks. He is will lovingly remembered by his daughter Elizabeth J. Gardiner and son-in-law, Charles G. Gardiner of Port Tobacco, MD, and son Bradley A. Hicks of Salem, VA. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Andrea L. and Christopher R. Owens of Bristow, VA; Brian A. Hicks of Lexington Park, MD, William Hicks of Roanoke, VA, Mary E. Gardiner of Alexandria, VA, Benjamin A. and Marie Hicks of Salem, VA, Jessica Hicks of Roanoke, VA and Charles G. Gardiner, Jr. of Port Tobacco, MD. He is survived by many family members and friends from La Plata, MD to Ontario, CA.

Viewing and prayers will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in La Plata, MD, on Sunday, August 15, 2010, from 2:00-4:00 P.M. and 6:00-8:00 P.M. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in La Plata, MD, on Monday, August 16, 2010, at 10 A.M. Private internment will take place at Cheltenham Veteran’s Cemetery in Upper Marlboro, MD.

Kauffman, Susan Marie

Birth: 1953-05-13 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Residence: Valley Lee, Maryland
Death: Tuesday, August 03, 2010
Laid to Rest: Thursday, September 02, 2010 in the Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia
Condolences: Click to View or Post

Click to see full size photoSusan Marie Kauffman, 57 of Valley Lee, MD passed away on August 3, 2010 at Hospice House, Callaway, MD.

Susan Marie Kauffman was born on May 13, 1953 at the Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, Pa. She was the daughter of Wilbur and Dolores Blumenshine of Columbia, PA.

Sue leaves behind her beloved, of 38 years, husband Earl H. Kauffman. They would have celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary will be on August 22nd. She and Earl have three sons: Michael S. Kauffman, married to Karen Klinger, and their two children, Jeffrey and Hannah, from Warwick, PA; Mark P. Kauffman, married to Joy Marriott, and their two children Alex and Audrey, from Sterling, VA; and Matthew D. Kauffman, married to Maia Judd, from Mt. Holly, NJ.

Working for her Great Aunt Erna (owner of a family flower shop), Sue was just a teenager when she began her career as a florist. By 1974 she was the floral designer, and helped expand the family business until her and her husband moved to Warminster, PA in 1985. Though "retired" from the floral business, Sue continued for years to use her talent and her large dining room table to create masterpieces for her friends. Sue never lost her love of receiving flowers, either.

Interesting tidbits about Sue: She was a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician for the Warminster Volunteer Ambulance Squadron for many years; She was a member of the Warminster Amateur Radio club and held a FCC license - call sign: N3EQB; She was a "Blue Star Mother" and her banner had 4 stars - one for each of her sons who has or is still serving in the military, and one star for her husband, a retired Captain in the Air Force.
Sue was a member of the Church of Christ and throughout her life attended Conestoga Valley Church of Christ in Lancaster, PA, Valley Road Church of Christ in Warminster, PA and the St. Mary's County Church of Christ in California, MD.

Over the years, Sue taught Sunday school to the children of her congregations. She also sewed baby blankets for the majority of infants and children and grandchildren of her church family. Some of those blankets have started high school and college in the last few years. Perhaps Sue's most appreciated contributions to her congregations and her community occurred in the kitchen. Sue planned, organized and cooked delicious dinners and lunches for weddings, funerals, anniversaries, Wednesday night suppers, the local"Click-it or ticket" campaigns, etc. She made putting together dinner for over 100 people seem nearly effortless.

Sue's greatest gift was teaching hospitality to the women of her congregations, both in a classroom setting and in her home. Mostly Sue taught by example; she was dedicated to helping others. No one's freezer was ever as full as Sue's, because she always wanted to be ready, at a moment's notice, to cook a full meal for anyone who needed one. She'd send a card and/or a casserole to anyone she thought could use a bit of cheering up. Until just a few weeks before her death, and though very ill herself, Sue was regularly sending out cards of encouragement to others.

Family will receive friends for Susan's Life Celebration on Friday, August 13, 2010 from
5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Brinsfield Funeral Home, P.A., 22955 Hollywood Road, Leonardtown, MD. A visitation will be held on Saturday, August 14, 2010 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Church of Christ, 44850 St. Andrews Church Road, California, MD 20619 where a Funeral Service will be conducted at 1 p.m.

Interment will be held on September 2, 2010 in Arlington National Cemetery at 10 a.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to Camp Manatawny, 33 Camp Rd., Douglasville, PA 19518 , Hospice House of St. Mary's, P.O. Box 625, Leonardtown, MD 20650 or MS Maryland Chapter, 11403 Cronhill Dr., Suite E, Owings Mills, MD 21117.
