Not sure what to say?

I became acquainted with Kemp Hyers when he was my Commanding Officer in the Navy Reserve. Moreover, he was a wise gentlemen possessed of a delightful sense of humor and sense of proportion. Without his tutelage and patience I would not have reached the rank that I did. I owe him a great debt and will miss him

Courtney and Family:

Courtney, you would have no reason to remember me, but I worked with both you and Kemp when I was with Holmes & Thomson in Charleston. Not only was he a client at SCL/CSX but he was a friend and personal client as well. I am so sorry for your loss; I never met a better guy.

I hope to make the service at St. Andrew's on Saturday but also have the funeral of the mother of a former partner at Holmes & Thomson. Please let me know if there is...

Courtney and family, I am so sorry for your loss. He was one special person and had such a great sense of humor. I will forever hear his laughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I knew Kemper through his mother, Carlotta. She used to share stories about Kemper (and her grandchildren then great-grans when they came along) and she was so proud of all of you, Courtney included. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.

Courtney and Family, How sorry to hear Cousin Kemper has gone on. I know he, Patricia and his Mother are having a great reunion. Lots of laughs and stories. He will always be remembered as a wonderful joy. Love to you all.

Very sorry to hear about Kemper. Although it has been many many years since seeing Kemper, I still remember him coming to visit my parents and when he was in town we would go to Aunt Carlotta's He always had a great story to tell. Kemper's father and my grandfather were brothers. Condolences to the family
