  18. Dear Teresa and all the Teague family,
    I will judge Gilmer Teague based on the incredible love and admiration his daughter had for him. I will always remember the smiles on Teresa’s face when her parents were in Louisville visiting in the early 90’s. His warm spirit was surely passed on to his daughter.

    These are hard chapters to close but my prayers are with you today as you remember a special man.

    God bless all of you.

  19. Mrs. Teague,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God keep you in his love and grace and give you peace and comfort knowing that your husband and father is with Him.

  20. To The Teague Family:
    I was sorry to learn of Gilmer’s death. I will always remember when I was little and he passsed in his farm truck with the tall sideboards on the way to or from the stockyard, he always waved at me. I am sure many others in the area have their own memories of him.
    With Sympathy,
    Freda Plemmons-Woody

  21. We thank the lord for the time you spent with us and value the years of friendship that you shared. We pray that the pain and sorrow will soon go away and your memory will be with us forever.

  22. Our visit with your parents at their farm, now so many years ago, is still a fresh memory, fresh in beautiful country images, Southern hospitality and friendly faces. Your father’s picture here is just as we remember him. We are so saddened by your loss and are consoled by the memory of such a good man who lived such a good life of devotion to God, family, farm. With love and prayers for your time of sadness, Dave and Karen Duehring
