Larry and Cherrie Kilby, March 15, 2019 Susan, Caroline & Ginny - I am so sorry for your loss. I will truly miss seeing Joey out in the yard, planting flowers, pulling weeds and mowing his grass. Susan, we want to be appropriately supportive of you and even though your family is close by, please come next door if you need anything, even just a listening ear. I love you all and am praying for you during this difficult time. Much Love,
Julie Thomas, March 14, 2019 Dearest Susan, Caroline and Ginny, We are heartbroken for this loss of such an incredible man. I loved him from stories about him before l ever met him. His smile was always complimented by his servants heart, which was so evident once we had the privilege of getting to know him. Your family is being held close in our hearts these days. Knowing he is healed and perfect now brings us hope for our eternity. Love, Sherra Sherra Van Trease, March 13, 2019
