Not sure what to say?

Dearest Daddy~almost a year ago today I lost you~the most important man in my life!!!! I miss you EVERY second of EVERY day and you live eternally in my heart and soul! May you continue to rest in peace and may your angelic soul continue to shine on us and guide us through each day without you! I love you Pop~ Your devoted Baby~

PT -- I stopped by to see you today (May 28) with no idea that you had departed us in January. You were a wonderful friend. I send my deepest sympathies to your family. You'll be missed, especially sitting at the round top at PT Hastings.

We love and miss you everyday and are reminded on a daily basis of how many lives you touched and how much you brightened other's lives! Your memory is cherished FOREVER.....

I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. He supported my father & mother in their business venture years ago! On behalf of my parents your family is in my prayers.

I'm so very sorry to hear that Mr. Hastings past away. He was a very kind man and treated me and everyone like a friend instead of a stranger. He had a warm spirit about him that you rarely find amongst people. I feel like he was distant family and he will truly be missed. Rest in paradise my friend.

We live over an hour away and are just learning of this sad news. We would always come to the store for our special occasions food. It was always a pleasure to see Mr. Hastings while in the store. We are very sorry to learn of his passing and we wish his family peace during this difficult time.

We so loved going in the shop and especially loved when PT was there. We live in Fork Union and it was one of our favorites stops when we went to Richmond to shop. We will miss him so, but will sure continue to shop there. What a fine man and we are glad we knew him.

TT (That's what we called you during our RPI days), I'm going to miss you. I'll always remember our playing intramural basketball together at RPI and how "slick" a dancer you were at all the college socials wearing those fancy Bass "weejuns." Rest in peace my friend.

PT, very sorry to hear about your dad. Remember how good he was to all of us when we were playing at Kanawha for the old Chiefs.
