    The Redmond families David/Scoochie & Betsy, Eddy & Edie and Judy extend our condolences to the Tanner families. Our father Dave Tanner Redmond was a first cousin of Earl and Pete, thus making Scoochie, Eddy and I second cousins. We are ever grateful for Earl’s parents taking our father Dave under their wings when Dad was young and sometimes didn’t know where the next meal would come from. The Tanner families have always been caring and giving families. May God and his Angels watch over the families during this time. Many prayers go out to the Tanner Families from the Redmond families.
