Mr. Rearick was my favorite teacher in high school... even after high school any time I would see him he would call me by name and ask how I was doing and how my family was... he was a man who truly cared and had a great big heart! He will be truly missed! My deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved him!

Brent was a life long friend and neighbor as well as a classmate in high school. My sympathy to his family and brothers. He was such a wonderful friend and pal to me and his classmates. May he rest in peace and I know he is reunited with Jane and his parents.
