Dear Myrle & Family,

Let me express my sympathy for your loss. Since I'm family from California, I was not able to attend the services and see you in person as I would have liked to. Gus was the cornerstone of a warm, and loving family, a wonderful father & husband. Myrle, I'm glad I was able to talk with you this week and glad that your daughters are with you now. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Jackie and family,
My heart is heavy because I know what a bright light Mr Gus was for your entire family. He was truly one of the sweetest men I have ever met. I'll never forget his tour of artwork and music that he gave me when we first met! Such a gem of a man! Find peace in knowing what an amazing legacy he has left in his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and the love & bond that he passed on to you all! Your parents are an inspiration to us all - a true love story! Wish I could be there for the services, I know they will be amazing!!! Hugs to your mom for me!

MY sincerest condolences to you Myrle, and I will miss
Gus very much. I am so glad I got to sit with him on the back pew at SPN a few months ago and sing along with him and the Choir. What a wonderful man and musician! I am sure The Lord will recognize him. My prayers to you to carry on..........Carole Lumpkin
