Not sure what to say?

Our hearts go out to you in this time of need. Take comfort in the love of friends and family that are here with you now. God bless.

I will miss the routine communications with James ...he would e-mail frequently of his activities - especially since my husband died -- they would talk in the past, so that conversation was missing. I plan to attend the memorial service.

George Salter RIP, and Godspeed to the family. EGS

He knew me on a personal basis as one of Will's closest friends. He always welcomed me into his home with open arms to the point that I was not even required to knock anymore. I thought highly of him and i believe he thought highly of me as well. I wish I could have been closer to the family in his final days but my job has me posted in Texas. He will be dearly missed and I know he is looking down on us and enjoying himself in a better place. I was proud that he allowed me to call him dad,...

North was my very first friend. From the age of about 5 or 6 until about junior high school, he and I played together almost daily, roaming the woods behind his house that seemed endless and vast, stretching down to Chewacla Creek. We made hideouts and forts, chased or hid from imaginary adversaries, and generally enjoyed some of the finer benefits of growing up in 1950s Auburn. In those days, I could walk from my house on Dumas Dr through the side and back yards to his grandparents' house...

I have fond memories of North--especially from Boy Scouts and band. Condolences to all the family.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I have been praying for your family during this time, knowing God will give you strength and peace.

I was deeply saddened to learn of North's death. He was one of my very oldest friends--from childhood birthday parties through Boy Scouts together, sharing school lockers for at least 9th and 10th grades, maybe more. Besides, North is my 5th and 6th cousin! We share Mizell ancestry--his dad did lots of genealogical work on the Mizells.
