Memories Timeline


  1. Tina,
    I haved loved you and called you one of my best friends since kindergarten. (WOW! Almost 29 years ago) Knowing Carol and Homer was an added bonus for me. Your daddy was very special to me and I will miss his humor, honesty and unique outlook. I have said before you are one of my heros for many reasons and the love you have for your daddy is one of those reasons. I love you and Carol and will keep you in my prayers.

  2. Carol i was so sorry to hear about Homer i just found out Saturday.My thought;s and prayers are with you all.If there is anything i can do please let me know.Love in Christ Jean

  3. Carol and family,I am sorry to hear About homer,I did not know about it until today,if there is anything I can ever do for you (please) just let me know.We will remember you in our prayers.May God make you strong enough to carry on and may his blessings be with all of you..Love and Prayers frankie Woody

  4. Carol and family, We are so sorry to know that [another good old boy from the creek] is gone home.
    Homer always had a smile on his face and a laugh in his eyes and he will be missed from the yesterdays til the present.I still see him and Jimmy singing White Lightning together and the many antics they did together..but i know they are together again doing the same things.The creek is changing from where we were all raised, but believe me, memories last forever. So hold onto those and Homer will always be with you.Love and Prayers, Pat Hensley Buckner and Family

  5. Homer was a great guy, He would make me smile even if I was having the worst day.
    I knew Homer when I worked at Kangaroo’s Citgo in 1996-97. He always talked to everyone that came into the store and asked how their family was doing. I thought he knew everybody. He was a character and I am sure those who knew him better than I did, have suffered a great loss. God be with you
    I just lost my Mother, Ruby Sherlin on Friday, April 22,2005. I can’t be positive, but somehow she knew Homer and spoke to him one day when she visited me at work. While looking online to sign her guestbook, I ran across his obituary. I hated to hear that about Homer. I was shocked because I realized that I don’t keep up with people like I should.

  6. I have not seen or heard from Homer since high school, but when I read of his death, it brought back memories of long ago. We went to school at West Buncombe and Erwin together and our dads hunted together. When I hear of one of my childhood friends passing, it brings home that time passes so fast. My dad John Johnson is 87 and I called him to tell his of Homers passing and he remembered Johnny. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. God Bless.
