We felt honored to know both your Dad and Mom through Sunday School class at Atlantic Shores. They were sweet examples of Christ's love for his children. I also (Diane) got to do ministry with your Dad in the King's Choir and enjoyed hearing him play his guitar. He will be missed but heaven rejoices! Your entire family are in our prayers. Frank and Diane Montgomery

This is from Donna Colangelo Hayes....So many memories. Camping trips,Sleepovers , church services, just having a place to hang out after school, guitar playing, and the very special time when I was going to the funeral home for my mom's funeral and my car broke down. I didn't know what to do. I called Mr. "B" and he offered to check it out. He came and replaced the alternator in a parking lot in the rain. He was an ambassador of grace sent from the Lord during a very difficult season in my life. Life and times had put miles between us, but many times I have recalled those days a good man left a very beautiful and deep imprint in my life. I am looking forward to seeing Mr "B" again in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love you!!!

Kathy, Carol, and Steve, I am privileged to have had the chance to know this quiet, faithful rock of the Lord. He certainly did enjoy the gathering of his family around him and you each have honored him so well and lovingly. I know your world is not the same without his presence. I am praying for the Comforter to bring His peace deeply to each of you in these days ahead. Love, Kimberly
