  1. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. My GOD give you comfort in your time of need. He was such a wonderful man and glad to know him even for a moment.

  2. Our Heavenly Father has got one more faithful servant home with Him today. Thoughts and prayers are with you all. Tom Gentry, Iva, South Carolina.

  3. Mr. Cordery was the sweetest man. We attended Pope Drive Baptist with him. He seemed so broken hearted after his wife’s passing. He was excited to be moving closer to his son. He will be missed greatly at our church. Our deepest sympathy to you all.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss. By God’s grace and His son,
    We have the hope of being reunited in heaven. No sickness
    Or pain.

    Sending love to you Ray and Gail, and Deb and all the family.

  5. I just found out about Raymond’s passing. I was a neighbor of his in Anderson. Raymond was always a friendly person and we had several nice talks over the years. My thoughts are with your family
