Not sure what to say?

On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), we offer our sincere condolences to Jane and of Homer's family and friends as you mourn his passing. May God whisper peace to your hearts and comfort and heal them. We are grateful for his service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service. "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country." -- Rev. Ray Fritz, National...

I knew Homer through our school years in Roanoke. He was always so kind and fun to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Homer was one of the funniest and great guys that I was friends with at Jefferson. We always found time to chat and laugh at the happy memories at each class reunion.Will never forget all the fun times. your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

A class act. I went to Wasena with Homer, and remember he and Monty with the steel guitars and frilly cowboy shirts, performing at an early age. Most of us had no usable talents at that time. We did play in the creek behind my house after school sometimes. Strange the things you remember. His work on Jefferson reunions helped persuade me to come back from Colorado for one. He will be missed.

Cousins in the Baldwin family always seemed to have a special connection. Sharing memories of family times always brought a grin, and Homer always added that quiet sense of humor to his stories. He will be greatly missed and always revered, but I'm sure Lewis and "Red" are happy to be with him again. Thanks Jane for all you did for him.

Homer was such a pleasant person...I always enjoyed talking with him. As others have expressed he was part of the group that organized our reunions in such a wonderful manner...he will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his family.

Dearest Jane and family, John and I are so sorry to hear of Homers' passing. Sending prayers your way.

I had the pleasure of meeting Homer during his time as a weights and measures inspector. I worked in the deli at Harris Teeter at the time, and while he was rigid and non-negotiable in enforcing the standards required, he was also a pleasant, personable and wonderfully funny man. I eventually came to enjoy his visits because I knew that, once the inspection was over, he would stay a bit to chat and talk about whatever was going on. I had the added pleasure of working with his son, Matt, at...

I am so very sorry for the loss of Homer. He was a good friend at Jefferson and I appreciated all he did working on the 61 reunion committee for several years. God Bless
