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.

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 his visits. Jim Baxter & John Hayes
