Not sure what to say?

Dear Gail and Jane; Your father was one of the finest men I have known. He was a wonderful friend to my parents and always encouraged me in my love of the guitar. Although I have not been home to High Point in many years I will always have fond memories of your father.
William J. Sherman Newtown Ct

Gail and Jane, I just learned tonight of your dad's passing. I am out of town, but had to tell you that you and all of your family are in my prayers. Wonderful memories of a very special man and his family! Lot's of love to you all. Hope to see you soon.
Bill Millis and family

Dusty's passing moved me deeply. He had interpersonal skills that made him a shining example of how important it is to show respect to those you come in contact with from day to day. I was a delivery boy when I worked at Leonards, and he was the finest employer a young person could have. Hats off to Dusty and his dad, and hello to Charlotte, Serge, C. E., Elmer, Claudy, and Dan Odom. I'd like to extend my sincere personal regards to Dusty's family. Nolan Clinard, Cleveland, GA

My deepest sympathy to you all. I had the pleasure to know and work with Dusty at the Outpatient Clinic. I always looked forward to the days he was woking. Hw was a wonderful person.

Dear Jane and Gail,
Your father worked for me at High Point Regional Hospital in the Outpatient Clinic. I have never known a finer, Southern gentleman. I learned so much for him, and he became a dear friend to me and my husband, Dewey. We are sad to loose our dear friend, but know that God has a special angel in his heavens. May our God grant to you deepest sympathy and understanding during this most difficult time.
Alice and Dewey Jordan, both R.Ph.

Dearest Gail and Jane,

Although we have not seen each other in many years, I want you to know what a pleasure it was being your next door neighbors and how much I enjoyed your father over the years. Not only was he a great neighbor, but the tradition of going to Leonard's for any reason was always enriched by the conversations I would have with him, not only about health and pharmaceuticals, but celebrating when the Heels won a big game, or catching up with him about you and your...

DUSTY AND HIS DAD SERVED MY FAMIY FOR OVER 70 YEARS. I REMEMBER WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT OF THE SENION CLASS AT HIGH POINT HIGH SCHOOL. I REMEMBER HIS DAD FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS HE DID FOR THE FAMILIES IN MECHANICSVILLE.
DUSTY FOLLOWED IN HIS FOOTSTEPS DOING GOOD THINGS FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
DURING THE HARD TIMES HIS DAD NEVER TURNED ANYONE AWAY EVEN IF THEY DID NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR DRUGS.
OUR OLD NEIGHBORHOOD WAS BLESSED TO HAVE DUSTY AND HIS DAD THERE IN TIMES OF...

Dear Jane, Richard, Beau, Holly and Porter,
Dusty was such a vibrant man. I always felt his warmth and will remember him with great fondness. All of you will be in my thoughts and prayers from afar.

Margaret and I enjoyed knowing Penny and Dusty both as neighbors in Cherokee Hills and at FUMC HP. What a lovely, devoted couple!
