Memories Timeline


  1. I was so saddened to hear that your precious Dad passed away here but thankful that God carried him home. Only good memories do I have as Betty had taken me back to her home place many times when I was young. My deepest prayers are with you and comfort to all from the mighty God we serve.

  2. Brenda and Jason
    Uncle Mickey is at peace now and we know God had a plan for him. I have so many good memories of my growing up and the times spent with him. Jim and my prayers are for you and your families that you will always look to God knowing you will see him again. Sorry we will not be there tomorrow but in Sevierville where he and your mom love to visit.
