|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
|Hello Richard, I don't know if you remember me or
not from Jonesborough High School but I am so
sorry about your loss but knowing he is reunited
with his family helps the pain. I lost my mom on
the 28th of January 1997 at 69, four days before
her 70th birthday. I think of you often and wonder
what you are doing. We had such good time in
Health Class and other classes together. I miss
those day. I will remember you and your family in
prayer and hope you are dong well. Love to all. |
|Renee and family, my love and prayers are with you during this time. Your dad was a great person and has left a real legacy not only through his many friends but his great family. He was certainly a wonderful friend to my husband's nephew, Gary Broyles, and I have heard many wonderful stories about him. My love is extended to you and know you are loved dearly and surrounded by many many great friends and church family. |
||Jim Baxter and John Hayes
| James used to come to East Tenn Rent Alls and
get floor care supplies and rentals. We had a lot
of fun joking and cutting up with him. James
always put a smile on our faces. We really enjoyed
