Not sure what to say?

We are my grandfathers children and every last one of us can share enjoyable stories having been raised on 298 Hardy Hill i.e. stacked quarters for school lunch money, Muffers peaches, fishing with grandpop, sprint races with grandpop (he always won), rides in grandpops truck, picking grapes from the vine, "yes-yes" grandpop would say. Life was good for all of us and we will miss our grandpop and embrace his resting place with Muffer.

Your Always in My Prayers

To the best husband, father, grandfather, man ever.

Grandpop will continue to give to others in his next life and through his legacy.

We thank you grandpop for the sacrifices that you and Muffer made in order to provide to many. Your hearts and home were always open. You and Muffer made possible my best childhood memories.

I will love you and Muffer always and forever,
Leslie Ann Winings

Dear Mrs. Colvin,

The Armstrong family gives their greatest sympathy and prayer's to a wonderful family. I never met Rev. Field's, but what Pia has told me about her grandfather and muffer, they were faithful servants of the LORD...And I pray that Pia and I will follow their lagacy.

To the entire Fields family, our heartfelt prayers and thoughts go out to each and every one of you. Rev. Fields was the pillar in the community that we all looked up to and respected. He was truly a living saint and the love he showed to his family and friends will never be replaced. Our family spent many years under his leadership at Our Freewill and he performed wedding ceremonies for my sisters and I.
May the memories you have be a constant reminder of the legacy he has built...

Dorothea, Damian, Rhonda and family, My deepest condolences at the loss of your precious father and grandfather. What a long and fruitful life he lived. Our community is the better for having Rev. Fields a part of it.

I did not know Mr Fields personally, but living on Hardy Road Bonnie Fields rode the school bus with me. He must have been a great man of God who helped and changed those around him with his love and kindness. He is rejoicing now.

Gone.. the last of the Security Mutual Building Service crew I worked with and knew so well.. I recall fondly the 'conversations' between Les, Willie Bennett and George Archie.... smiling, laughing, people who loved life and passed that joy on to all around them. Rest in peace.

I am not going to be in town, so will not be available to be there in person to give my love and offer my support. But, know that I am there in spirit. I have great "smile makers" when I think of Muffer and Rev.Fields. What a blessing that you had them in your life for so long. I am sure they had a wonderful reunion and are looking down with pride at all of you. I know your love and faith will help in these very difficult days. Let your...
