Memories Timeline


  1. I saw Bill many times over the years at Tall Oaks. He always, always had a smile on his face. He was quick to say, “Hello!” and had such a cheerful disposition. We lost my mom two weeks ago. I am sad to see that Bill has also passed. The hallways of Tall Oaks will miss him greatly.

  2. Mr. Seckinger always had a smile and a joke for everyone. I spent many a happy days with the Seckinger Family though sleepovers, Birthday parties, recitals, weddings, and the birth of grandchildren!! Mr. Seckinger cooked me my fist over easy egg, it is still my favorite. The Seckinger home was always a great place to be with good food from Mrs. Seckinger, good laughs form Mr.Seckinger and lots of love from the current puppy in residence. Carolyn and her parents are the model of what a loving family feels like. Carolyn I’m very sorry for your loss, cherish your memories of your wonderful Dad, we all loved him.
