Not sure what to say?

Dennis and David - so sorry to hear of your father's passing. We are so appreciative of his efforts in supporting the Scouts of Troop 427 and the leadership he showed at Wesley United Methodist. He wasn't necessarily in the foreground of our Troop, but fathers like him were the foundation that kept us on steady ground and provided inspiration and leadership.

David and Dennis, I am so sorry for your loss. Seeing the passing of your father brought back many memories of he and your family. We lived across the street from you on Garland with my brothers Dan, Phil and my 3 sisters. Your dad was a good man. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I remember your father and mother from Wesley Methodist Church. I was in choir with her ( remember especially when she sang the "Little Drummer Boy" one Christmas) and remember him from church. They were good friends with my grandmother, Mrs. Ailca Carpenter. Your mother and father were very nice people and always friendy. They will be missed, but not forgotten in memories by all who were fortunate enough to know them.

we loved you, Ben, You will be missed by many,
Bob & Virginia Ricky

Rest Elbert, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

Dennis, Armeta and family:
We wish that we could share this day with you, but our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Please know that the times we had with Mr. Lister were fun and enjoyable.
