To Tom and family,

I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. While I never had him for a teacher, he was always very friendly and always had a nice hello for everyone. He reminded me so much of Dad sometimes. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. God Bless your dad.

We remembered Charles by my Dad teaching with him, and Becky, and Tom, Tara, and Ben. He has such a wonderful family. He was around the Yale area. Thinking, missing, and praying for you all.

Dear Sandy, Danae, Sarah and Family:
My dear beloved friends, I'm so very sorry your Dad and Pappy has left this earth. I know you're sad and will miss him so very much. I'm sure your feelings are mixed; sad that you're without him physically, but happy that he's healthy, whole and in the presence of our Lord.
Please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers and that I wish I could be there to comfort and love on you. You're all so special to me!

Always loved seeing him at NMS. Such a smile, such a heart for children, a great trickster and a chuckle of laughter that can never be forgotten, along with the cowboy boots and bolo ties. I've always missed him and the way he could walk into your shoes and know when you needed a kind word or a stern correction. Hail him now to the Heavens as one of the great teachers of love and acceptance. We were better for the gift of having him here. God give you comfort in your time of grief.
