Not sure what to say?

I'm so sorry to hear Mr. Tanner has passed. I remember the first time I met you guys. A hot-air balloon was landing in the OMU field behind your house and you allowed my daughter (still in a stroller) and me to go watch the balloon from your backyard. My daughter is 27 years old now but I've never forgotten how sweet you two were to us. God bless you and your family. You have my prayers. Lisa Tompkins

We are heartbroken to hear of Mr. Tanner's passing. He was such a kind, humble and God fearing man. He certainly leaves behind a beautiful Christian legacy in his children and their families. May God provide all of you comfort, strength and peace during the coming years. We love you and are praying for you.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Morton. Doesn't seem that many years ago when we were young and running around. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

Glen and Karen, I was so sorry to read about the passing of your father. Prayers for strength and comfort for you both at this difficult time.

Papaw Tanner was a gentleman with a warm smile, always so nice and welcoming. I'm so blessed to have been able to help care for him during his stay at Riverside. He will be forever missed.

Our condolences to the Tanner family! Sam was a very dear friend of mine, we rode together for many years
to Alcoa. Sam was loyal and friendly to all he knew. I didn't know Sam was ailing, I would call Sam intermittently,but it has been a while since talking to him. I know he will be sorely missed, but I am very sure he is in a better place now. May God bless and keep him! Our prayers go out to the family!
