Kathy, Jim, Becky and Family,
Thinking and praying for all of you during this difficult time. Both of your parents were amazing teachers and I am thankful for their dedication to so many at Springfield Schools.
It was so nice to run into both of them with Jim and his wife at Bob Evans several years ago. I was complimented that Mr. Whitehead remembered me.

Mr. Whitehead was my 7th grade math teacher. I was lucky to see him at Flower Hospital after high school. He was a volunteer and I worked there. May God comfort you and give you strength, healing, and peace!

I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Whitehead's passing. My family lived next door to you for a few years in the early 70's. I would have been around 3 years old then. I spent many an afternoon visiting with Grandmother and was blessed to have Becky take great care of me when my parents needed a sitter! Thank you to your family for your kindness and generosity! I am truly sorry for your loss.

Jim was a one-of-a-kind gentleman. He was always willing to help in any way he could, and he did it with a sincere smile. I always looked forward to seeing him and his lovely wife when they came into the office. He was such a good listener, and care about what folks shared with him. May our Lord wrap His arms around you and comfort you with all the wonderful memories you have of him.

We are so sad to hear of
"Mr. Whitehead's" passing. He was such a kind, gentle, generous man and neighbor sharing his special homemade preserves and cookies! (We moved next door in 1977!) He will be greatly missed. We are sorry that we will not be able to attend services and greet family as we are in FL now. Love & prayers, Tom & Marilyn Hartman
