Pat was my Dad's supervisor at The Laurels when he was diagnosed with cancer back in 1993. She was the best and treated him with such care. She made sure everything was in order to make sure he continued getting a pay check. She was a class act and I always enjoyed running into her around town. My sincerest condolences to Elaine and her family.

When my Son, Brad Willoughby was a baby I asked God that when the time came for him to be married that he would have Christian and loving In Laws. With Christian in laws comes an awesome Daughter in Law. Well God showed out on this answered prayer with Debbie and Jim. Debbie was such a gracious lady who I know loved my son as if he were her own. Debbie and Jim not only accepted Brad, Phil and I have always felt accepted as well. There is absolutely no doubt Debbie is with God right now. And I will be forever thankful for the beautiful Daughter in Love I have. Larissa, you have an awesome legacy in memory of Debbie. With eternal love to the Sineath Family, Donna and Phillip Feazell

My Aunt Mary loved family. I have many fond memories of her, but one sticks out— her kitchen refrigerator plastered edge to edge with photos of children, sons- and daughters-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, grandnieces, and nephews. Indeed, one had to guess at the color of that fridge… the photos covered nearly all its surface. Think of the number of times you use your fridge each day. Then think of the joy Mary Ellen got when she used hers, and of the many fond thoughts that (whether we knew it or not) flew our way on a daily basis. She will be missed.

Steve was a kind, gentle giant who was never ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My husband and I worshipped with he and his precious family on many occasions. I know he is being held and was instantly HEALED as soon as his sweet spirit left his body. Godspeed The Comforter to hold you and your family up Tammey. You’re in our hearts, minds and certainly our prayers. John 14:2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Sandy Timmermann Bonham posted on 7/24/21

Tom was my cousin and during our childhood our families celebrated almost every holiday together. So many memories. I’m smiling now remembering when he took my childhood toys apart—and then miraculously put them back together! Or went after my poor kitty to pull her tail. He and I were about the same age and had fun together growing up. As an adult, I’ll remember him for his ability to fix anything and do it for you without your even asking, his creativity and insight, his knack for researching things, his love for his pets, his enjoyment of the outdoors, and his cooking skills and appreciation of healthy food. He liked to do things his own way— -but with such a kind and loving heart underneath it all. He should have lived longer but I’m grateful Kirsten and the family were there for him in his final weeks along with his friends and his wonderful neighbors. I will miss him and send love and sympathy to Kirsten, Karen, Enid (sister) and everyone who loved him.

Mike O'Brien posted on 7/19/21

Dear Arlo and Family: I just learned of Ted's passing and want to express my sympathy. Ted was my mentor and my friend for the sixteen years I spent in the waste industry in Palm Beach County, and he was an extremely important part of my life. I never got tired of the many opportunities to play golf together, to soak up Ted's wisdom and advice, to hear his "war stories", meet his many friends and generally and thoroughly enjoy Ted's company. I'm a pretty old man myself now - still working, by the way - and I continue to tell "Uncle Teddy" stories to my family, friends and employees. There is much to learn from Ted's anecdotes and humor. I greatly regret losing touch with Ted when my career took me to the Panhandle, Hawaii, Chicago and now, Long Island. I hope he knew that I loved him like a father. Best to you all, Mike

I met David Owen about 40 years ago when I married his brother-in-law, George Hansen. We enjoyed many visits at the family home in Kentucky and also when David and family came to Tulsa for family get-togethers. He was a great brother-in-law. He was reserved, but when he did speak it showed his intelligence and sense of humor. I am so glad George and I visited David and AnnEtte in their lovely North Carolina home in 2014. David had transitioned into a pleasant retirement with many interests. We will always cherish the memories.

He was always an accepting friend. The longer I knew him the more respect I held for him seeing his heart was what he lived by. Anyone that knew him is a better person for being around his example. Learning to love people and getting things done right. I pray God's comfort for Donna and family thru this difficult time.

 

Mike Carriker posted on 7/17/21

Steve will be remembered for his service both public and personal. Over the years and during his time at the county’s inspection office, we always took time to speak to each other. With me being an electrician and him being a plumber, there was always a little ribbing back and forth. I always admired him for his commitment to public service, and told him so often. I’ll always wish we had spent more time talking about what we had in common and what we didn’t. Amy approached me years ago about my family genealogy and how it might be tied to hers. I shared what I knew about mine and how we were connected. She thought that was “so cool”. I cried when she passed, so suddenly. I really felt bad for Steve and Lance. Life’s that way though. When you least expect it, it throws you a curve. The legacy Steve left behind will continue as a tribute to his kind heart and passion for others. I’m glad I got to know him, and share a little life with him. Well done Steve, well done. .

Judge Franks was such an amazing man. His mother Margaret was a resident at Cardinal Care Center where I worked. When he was sworn in to become a Judge he asked could I arrange it to be done at Cardinal so his mother could be there. He was such a compassionate person, loved to joke, made sure his mother had the best of everything. I will truly miss him and will always remember his love and great conversations. Prayers for all the family.

I just found out about Gary's passing and want to express my sincere condolences to his family. Gary and I were cousins on the Merrell side of the family. When I was growing up at Fruitland, I saw him often, but lost touch over the years. Just before I retired from Blue Ridge Community College, I saw Gary with one of his grandchildren at an event at North Henderson. We talked about family and old times. It was really nice seeing and talking with him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

It was quite by accident that I learned of Dr. Owen's death, and I am very saddened to hear of it. Dr. Owen was my chemistry professor at Murray State in the Spring of 1979. He loved chemistry and made it all right for me to love it, too. He was our "cool" professor, the first of the teaching generation to bring demonstrations into the classroom. I am a chemistry professor now and am contemplating retirement. But Dr. O will always remain my inspiration, and my cherished "cool" professor.

Cheryl Nichols posted on 7/13/21

My father and mother (Uncle James and Aunt Mary to David and AnnEtte) have many wonderful memories of meeting with David and my cousin AnnEtte in the Smoky Mountains and visiting their home. My mom's favorite is that after listening to my father catch him up on events, David interjected, "And now it's time to hear about Mary." Thank you, David, for making my mother laugh! Two memories that I wish to share reflect David's scientific curiosity, dedication to learning, and positive Christian faith. A few years ago, David learned that I was teaching 5th graders math and science. He felt that this was such a good age to "hook" these children - to get them excited about what math and science offer. David wrote a lesson on the Fibonacci sequence for me and provided all the materials. What a blessing! And the lesson had the desired affect! Last fall, my husband and I were able to meet David and my cousin AnnEtte at Lake Junaluska. David and AnnEtte showed us the smaller chapel that reflects the Celtic Christianity and shared the positive aspects of faith that it embraces. It was a beautiful day that focused on family and nature in the backdrop of a setting dedicated to faith in our Maker. I am grateful for David's life, for his marriage to my cousin AnnEtte, and for all of their family (biological and spiritual). And I am grateful for David's positive Christian faith and his constant curiosity and appreciation for life. David will be missed here, but greatly welcomed by those he is joining!

Jennifer and family, much sympathy for the passing of Cindy. She helped me learn that folks from above the Mason Dixon line were OK. I found her to be a caring daughter, loving mother and a true friend to animals. She formed a strong home. I remember that home getting stuck in the middle of Bearwallow Rd for awhile, but Cindy steered it to a firm foundation. Rest in peace Cindy, you have steered a positive difference in the people you befriended.

I will never forget Cindy’s always smiling face and caring heart. Just thinking about working with her and Jen during a flooring reset that first time I met them both, brings back a cherished memory that warms my heart.

Millie was such a wonderful neighbor. I always hoped she would be outside when I was coming or going just so we could greet one another. I knew she was there for me and she knew I was there for her (like the day with her golf cart) and that was peace of mind. I didn’t learn of her passing until one hour before her service today my heart goes out to each of the family members because I know she was a fun, loving person and I know you will miss her greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time.

Thought I already did this , but oh well! My mommy in the early years was the best! I will never forget the first flower garden we planed, sweet peas. Saw my first snake doing this, dad thought he was helpng so smashed the garden with a glass...boy did I yell at him! My mom always cared for me when I was sick...after I moved away from her I would cry for her when I was sick. She would play games with all of us in the neighborhood, giant steps, red light green light, etc (unitll Jennie ran bare naked for the ice cream truck jingling and came back covered in tar from the road, lol) the best was the songs she taught us to sing which I sang to my daughter, friends children and now my grandchild, the most reputable being, "the little brown sparrow" Things went crazy in life for mom , my brothers and sisters and I, yet I understood and always , always loved her! Just had to be from afar.

Dawn Barton was one of the few people in this world that truly had a kind , loving, giving heart and that is hard to find in this day and time. She was always helping others putting her own issues and problems last. weather it was giving them a ride or just sitting and talking about their problems. Anybody that truly knew her has not a bad word to say about her. Everybody considered her a friend but she was more than just a friend to me. She was my rock my support and I am PROUD to say MY BEST FRIEND. She has been there for me when I needed her more times than I can remember. We all have issues in life we have to deal with (some bigger than others )but as she struggled with her issues her loving heart never changed . She was always a compassionate person with a bigger heart than most of the people I have meet in my lifetime. I loved her and will miss her more than words can say. She will always be in my heart and my mind. I will always love you Dawn. I hope you have now found the peace and happiness you have been searching for .

Gram, you were the absolute light in my life, and I will miss you forever. I cannot thank you enough for the love you showed me my entire life. you and grampy were the most wonderful grandparents there could ever be. I am so lost without you, I will miss our dinners together, our talks, and the time we spent together my entire life. Memories of roller coasters, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios,and so many wonderful trips we made, our chicken dinners on the patio, the strawberry and goldfish plant, and asking to watch Annie, and Strawberry Shortcake over, and over with bean dip, and chips in tow. My love of CoCo, Kasey, and sweet Teddy bear Muffy, who I still miss to this day. Grampy in his green pinto taking me to Thrifty for ice cream, and letting me tool around on a golf cart at Meadowlark. So many wonderful memories flood my mind, that I will cherish forever. You were an angel on earth to me, and will forever remain my guardian angel forever watching over me. I am so at peace knowing that you are finally with Grampy as you loved him so much, and missed him terribly, and you are reunited with Aunt Bon, and Aunt Judy, Grammy, and Jim, who you also loved so much. It is that peace that will comfort me. I love you little Gram... and remember "Each day I live is a day I get closer to seeing you again" Forever in my heart... xoxoxo Jennifer

Mr. and Mrs. Fisher came into our lives by a Border Collie Puppy in 1997, we were home on leave (was stationed in Jacksonville FL with Florida Army National Guard flying helicopters) visiting my Parent's in Asheville where I grew up. We saw a small add in the newspaper (which we still have) advertising Border Collie Puppies. We went to the Fishers home and got a wonderful demonstration of herding by Mr. Fisher's dogs, we purchased a female puppy and named her Jen. She lived till 2012 a blessed 15 years of which over the course of those we visited the Fishers many times, they became and remain the dearest of our Family to this day. We actually got a second Border Collie puppy named Elly but sadly she lived only a short time. Mr. Fisher was a very special Man and I looked to him many times for advice, he had a deep kind spirit, his Wife Ms. Pat is an Angel as kind as they come. Mr. Fisher left an indelible mark on our hearts and souls and not just by his wonderful Dogs but by whom he was personally, always caring, always gentle and a Pillar of a Man that is rare ever seen today, God Rest His Soul, and he would say of his Beloved Border Collies, Job Well Done, "That'll Do".......... We Love and Miss You Sir...

My fairy godmother has been called to enjoy her eternal reward. No words can express what her love and support over the years have meant to me. AMA (Aunt Mary Ann) always planned special things for me and visited me no matter where I was living. And she welcomed me many times to her home, where she cooked extraordinary meals and made me feel so welcome. I will miss the way she so genuinely listened and cared about me. The way she was as a wife and mother made me want to have that same kind of marriage and family. Although I could never dream of being as good at it as she was! She will be dearly missed, but now I believe I have a guardian angel in Heaven. Love you so much, AMA!

I first met Ralph and his wife Pat in Florida in the early 2000’s. Pat and my recently deceased wife Diane Mantho were childhood friends growing up together in Long Island, NY. We played golf together and it was immediately obvious that Ralph was a people person. We visited Ralph and Pat after they moved to NC . Ralph and I talked about golf . Pat and Diane talked about painting as they were both artists. I only wish we lived closer to them as playing golf regularly with Ralph would have been a wonderful experience. My heart felt condolences to Ralph’s children and grandchildren.

As a small child growing up in Shaws Creek Church, a precious lady I remember so fondly made each person she encountered feel special. When I was 10, she took us to Ridgecrest for a Mission conference. 54 years later, that memory is so vivid in my mind. She truly was a virtuous woman who loved God with all her heart. I’m thankful for the times I was privileged to share with her. She is home.

I first met Ralph in 2016 when I joined the Opportunity House Golf League. He was a friendly face that I needed being new to the area. Ralph encouraged me when I was down and was playing terribly, he was the first to give me friendly grief when I played well. I will miss his 1st hole jokes, his advise in the fairway, and his genuine friendship. Ralph was a good man, a good friend, and I will miss him dearly. God's Speed Ralph.

I first met Ralph and the rest of the "Stanley Steamers" (see Dick Harmon's post) in the late 1950s as skating partners at the Hub Roller rink on the Northwest side of Chicago. These young men treated me very well, and as a shy young woman, I even felt like they put me on a bit of a pedestal. I remember going to one of Ralph's military balls when he was at Northwestern University. Bob and Dick were groomsmen when Merritt and I married, and we remained lifelong friends with Ralph, Bob, and Dick. Merritt went to school, played baseball, and graduated from Taft High school with Ralph and the other "Stanley Steamers". Even after Merritt died, I remained good friends with Ralph and Dick and enjoyed frequent calls from both and group Facetime chats. I will miss Ralph and wish my most sincere condolences to the Adams family.

Dick Harman posted on 6/11/21

There were six of us to start. Merritt Lewis (Louie), Henry Russel (Buzz) and Don Schreck, the two boys and me. Dick Harman, We all graduated from Taft High School in Chicago Illinois in 1952. Ralph along with his brother were Honor Roll students. They were two peas in a pod. It was said that Ralph could just open a book and pass the test, whereas brother Bob had to study hard and long to get the same grades. One year, don't remember exactly what year, Ralph needed a winter jacket. He told all of us if we buy them as club, we could get a discount so we bought six green jackets and called ourselves "THE STANLEY STEAMERS" . My brother was an artist and made us a logo. A great big puff of smoke on the back of our jackets with the words, “STANLEY STEAMERS" in the middle of the smoke and then he drew us a picture of a real Stanley Steamer automobile which we put put on the front of our jackets. We did many things together and became life long friends. Ralph and I played golf at his favorite golf course a few years ago. At our age the ball didn't go very far, but he always managed to hit the ball straight down the fairway. Since then we shared our memories over the phone almost every week until his passing. We had good memories of our youth and even though our path in life took us in different directions, we remained good, no, great friends. Louie, Buzz and Bob were the first to turn in the jackets, and now Ralph has decided to turn in his jacket, too. I will miss you Ralph. You served well my friend. Dick

To JoAnn’s family I went through High School with JoAnn and was a band member with her. She also was a dear friend. Several of us spent a lot of time at he home. I remember one morning at Band class, as she walked into the band hall she came up to me and with tears in her eyes, she said “Tommy I wreck my Car last night.” Bless her heart she looked so very sad. She told me what happened and that she was not hurt. After school we went different ways and I did not see her for several years. And that was at a class reunion. I was very sad when I hear that she had left this world, but after reading her obit, and realized she had a very full life. God bless all y’all.

I only had the pleasure to meet Ralph one time, and that was at his twin brothers funeral. He was an absolute delight to chat with and hear stories of his time in the service as well as the shenanigans he and his brother pulled on people. I do have to say that he threw me for a loop at his brothers funeral, seated in the front row of the church, I had to take several double takes. He and Bob were IDENTICAL Twins!

I am deeply saddened to hear of Betty's passing. She was one of the strongest people I have ever met. Over the years she was a true inspiration and great example of Faith. Many times I would confide in her and she always was able to let me know that God is the answer. She was truly a special individual and she has left a lasting impression on my life and many others that she touched. Robbie Isley

Betty was one of our Women of Hope for the Pardee Hospital Foundation. She was one of the First Ladies I met when I started working for the Foundation in 1998. She was a lovely lady who personified our Women of Hope of the Women Helping Women initiative. She will be missed greatly.

Henn Family, So sorry to read on the ACR class of 1973 Facebook page of one sweet, smart and smiling young lady, that I knew called Betty Yarborough had passed away. I saw her at a class picnic a year or two ago, and she still had that precious look and smile on her face and we had a good conversation, first time I had seen her since she graduated, now I know why, she has been one busy wife, mother, and grandmother and helping run a business, church worker, volunteer, you name it Betty was probably part of the group at Hooper's Creek. My prayers and sympathies for all of you. We all know she will have a new body and no more pain. Love in Christ, Ethel Jacobson, retired Librarian ACR High

I had the honor of working with Don while at Thos. Shepherd and Son. Loved his stories and appreciated his advice how to fit in and work in Hendersonville as I looked to him as a very good resource. He was a true gentleman and knew the business well. Aaron he was very proud of you and all your work in the Navy as a Seal. He would always talk about you and we knew he was proud. I am saddened to hear of his passing as Don did get a second chance at life when I was working with him and he went thru the heart transplant. I also was with him when he lost his wife Paula ...,and although saddened and hurt...he somehow picked up the pieces and carried on for his family. The profession lost a good one! God Bless the Rummage family and may Don rest in peace and honor.

I’ve known Julia since the early days of her involvement with the motorcycling community. Words can’t express the our sadness of the passing of such a beautiful person. She was a friend of all who met her. I especially loved her adaptation to her South Carolina and North Carolina homes. After all, how can a North Jersey lady assimilate into southern culture without learning the peculiarities of the language? Julia did! North Jersey with a southern drawl. From Nancy and Doug Evans, we’ll miss you. To Gene and her loving Family our deepest condolences. God speed gentle lady.

We remember Timmie as a little boy. We danced in the rain to prove you wouldn’t catch a cold. In the years in between Tim became a man, a loving husband, and a good father, giving so much to be proud of and leaving behind the legacy of a beautiful family. No matter what our hope is, it hurts to be separated from the ones we love. We can choose to look at it this way: the last time we got to be with Tim is the longest time we will have to be separated from him. From now on we’re just counting down til we can be reunited. Much love to you all!

I wrote "By Sweet Waters" as I drove to work in the mountains of Kentucky contemplating how much she loved her mountains, how much she loved Jesus, and how much she loved people. I imagined she would want us to think of her asleep, as in John 11:11, or walking with Jesus beside sweet waters, as in Psalm 23 and Revelation 22:1. I imagined her family kissing her eyes and singing a prayer over her. She always encouraged and inspired creativity, and I imagine her creating in heaven without limitations. Love you, Aunt Beth.

To the Davis family, please know that the lasting impact Teresa made on her students reaches far. We may graduate and move away physically, but our memories remain clear. "Ms. Smith" was more than my cheerleading coach, she was a friend and mentor. As an early career teacher, she was only 10 years older than us and we looked up to her personally and professionally. I am so grateful to have reconnected with her within the past few years. We were able to catch up at a recent reunion and I left with a few hugs. I am deeply sorry for this loss to her family and the entire WHHS community. All our prayers. Laura Alexander Page, class of 1996 Columbia, Missouri

Mrs. Davis, you have left an amazing, positive impact on my life. From the time I first moved here all the way from Memphis, TN, you made me feel very welcome and like I was part of a big family at West Henderson. You never failed to brighten my day, whether it be a word of encouragement, a humorous remark, or even an inspiring phrase that would truly make me think. You always pushed me to become the best student that I could possibly be and have always helped me whenever I needed your help. Words cannot describe how much of an amazing teacher you were. As always, I'll remember to "carpe diem" or "seize the day". Thank you yet again for all that you've done for me.

I love Beth. Have loved her for probably 45 years. Especially when she and Mike lived in Barker Heights, we shared the most wonderful times together as sisters in Christ. She was a part of one of the most special times of my life as a new Christian growing the knowledge and love of the Lord. All our "Mary Martha" Bible studies! All our after-church spontaneous "covered dish" dinners with other church friends like Dorothy and Guy, James and Sandy, and so many others who like Beth have passed through my life and left a sweet savor of God's Holy Spirit. All of us marveled at Mike and Beth's and Guy and Dorothy's salvation story and how the all ended up living down the street from me on Aycock Ave. I'm so glad the sisters had those years together. Dorothy, may your memories of that time comfort you as having been a loving gift from God that I hope will help support you during your sadness. God redeems the years the locusts have eaten. And I remember the laughter! Oh my! Beth always had a humourous animal anecdote to tell of some critter she had observed or something her dogs had done. My daughter BJ says she remembers Beth's laugh! Beth showed her adventurous side when she and I walked to town one day on the railroad tracks with Amber and BJ in backpacks! Hanging upon my wall is a special gift from Beth from 1994 - her painting of "A Large Place" from Psalm 18:19. Our loving Shepherd surely has guided Beth - and myself, and yea, all of his dear sheep - through the paths of our lives and led us into that large place. Praise his wonderful Name. My love and affection are with Mike, Amber, Leah, and the grandchildren. May God bless you as only he can during this time, and lead you into your large place. Love to you, now and always.

Beth Nelson, A precious treasure. Mary Martha Circle Mamas always getting together to pray for their children, families, each other, singing together, counting their blessings 1 by 1 (Leah, Amber, and all the children...) Lifting each other up before the Lord in dark times, Praising the Lord in good times and always - a sacrifice of praise. training up children the way they should go... Psalm 118:5 I called upon the Lord in my distress: the Lord answered me and set me in a large place. I remember that being one of her verses that was special, I think from her first heart surgery? I remember she painted a picture of a large place regarding it. I thank God for Beth and you all Nelson family. You are my God and I will praise you: you are my God, I will exalt you. O, give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures forever. Thank you God for Beth Nelson. See you soon sister

And her kindness and sweet spirit, and even keeping us all on our toes at times. But everybody loved Sis Barbara, and will surely miss her, but her spirit and memories still live in our hearts! Thank you Sister Barbara Ellen Combs for loving us! Brother Johnny, and family,, we pray that GOD will give you HIS peace that passeth all understanding!

I remember Barbara of our years growing up together. Always looking forward to seeing her at the Roberts’s Reunions, and the food she brought was fabulous. One time she gave me a delicious and beautiful strawberry icebox pie to take home with me. She was such a wonderful cook and seem to enjoy it so much. She was such a good mother and loved her family so much. Rest in peace my amazing cousin. You hold a special spot in my heart.

My time with Jerri was short, only the few years she and Tom lived nextdoor to me in Hendersoville. I enjoyed our visits, especially in the afternoons when Tom poured us each a glass of wine. She was a special person and one I’ll miss. I wish I could have had more time with her. The last months were difficult and it’s a comfort knowing she is at peace.

Dear Mike and Family: I was so very sorry to learn of Beth's passing. She stood behind me at Mud Creek in the choir and was such a joy to be around. So many things were beautiful about Beth, but a memory that comes to mind is the Easter Pageant where we were all on stage as Beth approached Jesus weeping when He had been brought down from the cross. She touched the depths of my soul, and I am sure she did many others. What a treasure! Heaven continues to get sweeter as our loved ones move on to see our blessed Savior, and praise the Lord, Beth is healed. What a time she must be having! May God bless you during this time, and keep you in His Hands with loving care. She will always be remembered. Much love,

Pat and family in my thoughts and prayers. Went to church with Tommy and Pat and called them by first names. Then i had Tommy for my science teacher and it didn't seem right saying Mr. Fisher. I told him i would just raise my hand when I needed help rather than saying his name. I served the teachers their lunch and he said I could not call him Mr. Fisher if i made sure he had two corner pieces of cornbread on his plate. Sometimes he had the third pieces.

I could not have had a better friend than Tom Fisher. He was quick to generously provide me, a stranger, space to garden in his very, very productive growing area and later a separate space of my own. Over the next 25 or so years Tom gave me an amazing variety and amount of gardening materials. (l hardly ever left his summer garden without produce.) He repaired equipment for me and made supports for bean trellis. (I could go on and on…) But most of all, I enjoyed and appreciated than our many, many garden walks and carport and home visits. We had serious and irreconcilable differences. We could never agree on the best varieties of lima beans and sweet corn, or on the right size for a digging fork! Tom was a doer, and believed in personal effort (having “grit” as he described it) and spoke with pride of his family’s achievements---I remember home building and cabinetry in particular---and their closeness to him. I hope Tom has found a new place of health and happiness where he can praise his Savior, tend another great garden, and enjoy friends in his carport. Our deeply felt condolences go to Pat and all his family.

Steve and Bob, My thoughts and prayers are with your family in the loss of your mother. As my dear neighbor at Country Ridge, she became my special “Mrs. Alice”. It was always a delight to listen as she shared activities of her grandchildren or lamented mobility and pain limitations. When we were in NC she often brought over cookies. She was a mother figure - but even more a friend. After she moved, I shared treats and occasional flowers. I couldn’t see her last February but left flowers and love. Please cherish your memories of a precious lady.

We will always cherish our warm and happy friendship with George and Martha. George and I shared many exciting flying stories, both being ‘brothers of the cloth’, former military fighter pilots. We flew the hottest machines in the world. It was a special treat and privilege for us to go flying together on a visit to San Diego. I fondly remember the time we were visiting Flat Rock and rendezvoused with him for breakfast at a local cafe where he could be found every morning after his daily hikes. There he was, holding court as usual, regaling admirers with sage pronouncements. I shouted across the room, “Are there any fighter pilots in here?” I triggered a conditioned response and as he began to rise, I shrugged my shoulders, turning away as he futilely waved, and said loudly, “Guess not!” Blue skies, George!

Mr. Fisher was one of my teachers at East Henderson. He also sold our family two of the best Border Collies, Buddy a real working cow dog that passed away at the age of 13 and Cody that's still here at the age of 15. Cody was my son's Christmas gift and Mr. Fisher allowed him the pick of the litter. That was a special treat.

Velma was a gentle, kind lady who was always ready to help others. Anne and I got to know her during her time at First Baptist. She was the prayer leader for our Sunday school group and sang in the choir, as well working as an assistant to Pastor Liner (at the time). Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Wes Davis, truly a wonderful Christian friend. You will be missed by so many . I remember you calling and singing Happy Birthday to me, wishing Hal and I Happy Anniversary on our 63rd Anniversary. You just did so much for so many. Certainly you used your talents. You claimed that Hal was your favorite Marine. How special that made him feel. I can hear you now laughing and talking after Church on Sunday's. You will not be forgotten. We are happy that you are in the arms of the Lord. No more pain and discomfort. We will meet again soon, very soon. Martha, we are praying for you and the family. Wes loved the Lord , he meant so much to so many and he loved you dearly .A wonderful Christian couple. Thank you for sharing him with our amazing Church family.

My husband and I were so grateful to have met George through his beloved granddaughter (and third generation pilot) Joy. Though our time with him was short, he was full of life and laughter. My memory of him will be as a loving grandpa and great grandpa who loved to stay active and to share memories from his life. Our heart goes out to the family, Martha, Karen, and Sharon especially. Love you all!

Though my time with Cline was sadly limited, from sporadic gatherings to those cherished Wells Family reunions, I will always remember his warm and inviting demeanor; his sense of humor and wonderful laughter; his generous spirit; and his devotion to his dedicated family. He will be greatly missed by a lifetime of friends and relatives, far too broad and numerous to mention here. Thank you for your indelible mark on my life, Cline, and I only wish I could witness you soaring higher than even you ever dreamed. Enjoy the best of family reunions, and give my Dad all our love. Godspeed, Cline, and farewell.

I love this picture! The expression on his face shows the true Wes. Though he did everything with such dedication, there was also an air of mischievousness about him. I remember his laugh.

Bernice What a friend we had in Jesus and what a friend He gave me in you! We became friends as new widows and it was such a comfort to share our thoughts, tears, time and memories. We learned to move ahead finding that God had plans for us. You reached out to other widows and started the glory girls luncheons. We learned to laugh and enjoy so many things with a wonderful ever growing group of special ladies. We enjoyed the farmers daughter trip and thanks to Cathy we made it to the Barter theater. You loved serving Him at Biltmore and at MRLEC. Yes, you touched so many lives for good and for Jesus!

Truly a 20 year friendship we enjoyed. I could be living out of state and/or 2 or 3 years go by without being in touch and drive up in her driveway to find that same Kristy welcoming me home and it was if our friendship never missed a moment in time. I felt very privileged to be her friend she didnt consider many to be her friend. I have shared many tears, many smiles and many good times with Kristy and although my heart aches right now with the loss of my dear friend, I know we will meet again and until then...I will miss you very much Kristy.

Deepest sympathy to the Justus family. I will miss Glenda at Universal Health Care. Glenda was my sister’s roommate at Universal. I spent many hours there with her and my sister before Covid . We sang lots of hymns together and many times I took Glenda to the dining room where she amazed me with her gift of playing the piano. My family has recently been able to visit my sister in a separate area from their room. But we’re not able to see Glenda. My sister is heart broken as we all are. We all loved Glenda and thought of her as family. Sympathy and prayers to all of the family. I have wonderful memories of Glenda and my sister. We had so much fun. And watching the Atlanta Braves.

Gail joined the Hendersonville Kennel Club in October 1999 and was with us for fifteen years. She served as a club officer for most of her tenure. One of my fondest memories was when Gail handed me a steaming hot cup of coffee. The HKC was hosting a "Parade of Breeds" in front of the Courthouse on Main Street. It was a bitterly cold day - My teeth stopped chattering. David, you were the best secretary a past president ever had. Sincere condolences to you and your family.

Bob was special, someone you were glad to know and see again. First met Bob in 1961 in Burlington, on the dock at the Operating Center of Duke Power. I was a new hire for Duke and I believe I heard Bob and saw him before I learned he was a Foreman with LW Routh Line Contractors. While most in the morning were quiet, Bob was greeting everyone, calling out names and hi you doing to all. Bob learned who I was sooner than I learned who Bob was. He was always friendly, warm, entertaining, and sincere in our conversations.. Bob's work was hard and heavy, before air tools and hydraulics, tough labor work, and Bob was good at it. You came to admire those that could do the work and looked to those like Bob who excelled with great respect. Through the years I always felt lifted up when I encountered Bob and his enthusiasm and positive outlook, cheerfulness to the core. It was good to have Bob in your life.

Growing up with Mrs. Owens as my second mom was amazing! She taught me many important things like how to speak with a New England accent and that Flav-R-Ice was a medicine that fixed everything from hurt feelings to cut knees or chicken pox. I have the greatest, fond, fun and loving memories of her. She would always let Linda and I ride backward in the big station wagon.....with the window down!! I can picture how she always sat so tall with her feet together, and a small smile always on her face. She would laugh out loud with....or maybe at (?) Linda and I! She would always smile and comment when Daisy would lay in my lap because she said she didn't do that with too many people. And, she let us write all over the walls before they were wallpapered!! She and my mom were great friends. The world is a much dimmer place without her in it.......BUT....imagine how heaven lit up when she showed up! Mr. Owens, Linda and Tommy....I love you guys and you will always mean so much to me. I am so sorry that you have lost your matriarch, but am also so happy that you had her all those years. What memories!

Dear Jade, Thank you for all of the smiles and laughs. I wish that you had had more time here with all of us and that you could have blessed the world with your smiles, kindness, and humor for a much longer time than you were given. Out of all of the people I have worked with over the years, you were one of my favorite people to work with. You actually wanted to get to know me and we had a lot of good conversations. On days when I was feeling anxious and sad at work, you were able to bring a smile on my face when no one else knew that I was feeling anything other than happy. We had conversations about our lives and futures and how you really wanted to go back to college. I was very happy when I found out that you were going to get to go back to school like you wanted for so long. I can't believe that you are gone and it makes me sad that we won't be able to see you again for a while. :( I wish I had gotten to know you outside of work more and spend time with you. I love you so much girl and thank you for being a blessing in everyone's life. We miss you!! I know you're watching over us now❤ Rest in peace

After meeting in high school and being close friends for 6 years, Jade and I got to do a lot of things together. To name a few; Laundry Mat Photoshoot, Monica's breast cancer party at Bold Rock, Filming youtube videos, random drives around town, going to tattoo shops together, I went with her to get more ear piercings, going to her dad's house to look at his Camaro, going to target to get matching Stranger Things keychains, going to chipotle, she introduced me to a new drink at starbucks a couple of summers ago. She loved it but I hated it, lol! It was the Mango Dragonfruit Acai Refresher. We've done so so much more and I cherish it all. We talked every other day and always made sure each others mental health was good. I had talked to her two days before she passed away. She wanted me to come over to help decorate her new apartment with that she had just moved into with Jordan. I never thought that would be the last time I spoke to her but I'm glad that we had that conversation. It'll remain dear to my heart and I will forever celebrate the life of her. Monica & Sydney- I pray for you guys everyday and hope that Jesus will continue to rest his hands over you and heal the hurt that you guys are feeling. Rest In Paradise Jade, until we meet again. <3

Matthew, Deborah and families, I have known Caroline (and Steve) for many, many years at first as a designer to renovate the cabin and then as friends. Every time they would visit Hendersonville from Maryland, we would get together for lunch to catch up. When Caroline moved to Hendersonville permanently, we had the opportunity to reconnect on a more regular basis. However, the pandemic intervened. I am so very sad to hear of her passing. She was always uplifting and joyful and always interested in others. I will miss her immensely. I hope her memories will sustain you in this tough time.

This past Sunday, April 11, at the end of our 11:00am worship at Edneyville United Methodist Church, Bob and Ruth were sitting in the pew right behind me right up front. Immediately following the closing hymn Bob went immediately to the front to talk with Sandra, our pianist, and then to Pastor Dana! Always greeting and complementing them for the music and the sermon! What a great man of God he was.

This picture is exactly how I shall always remember Caroline; full of life and excited to do everything. She and I shared some very nice moments and I was so looking forward to her being in the cabin this summer. Caroline was the heart and soul of our little group on Evans Road and will be missed terribly. I am very sad to lose Caroline, as I am sure everyone is.

Jade was one of my best friends in high school. She always knew how to put a smile on my face and any one she was around. I have a ton of memories with her so it is hard to think of one. However, one of my favorites is eating on Main Street Hendersonville with her and her mother Monica. In a day full of technology Jade was living in the moment and she didn’t touch her phone at all while we were there which really touched my heart because she cared about talking with me and her mom. My second favorite memory is going to the fair with her in 2018. We cut up, laughed, rode rides and ate food and had a blast! I always remember holding hands with her and listening to her crazy party music. We had theater class together which is where we really connected and also ate lunch together daily. I love you Jade and you will be missed dearly.

I had Jade as a student at BRCC and she was a kind and lovely person. You have my condolences as I am deeply saddened by this loss of such a bright and caring young woman.

I knew Caroline only during her last four years, as a neighbor just down Evans Road from her beloved family cabin. Such a lovely and friendly lady, dealing with life's challenges gracefully. It was my pleasure to help her out once in a while with this or that in the neighborhood. I would plow open her driveway after a winter storm or cut up a tree that had fallen across it, even if she were not there because she was a jewel in our midst who inspired the best in us.

 

Madison Stephens posted on 4/15/21

I hadn’t spoken to you since high school but I still remember sitting at a lunch table with you and when you would come sit and chat with me in the car rider line. You were a sweet girl who could turn any stranger into a friend. Rest in Paradise Jade❤️

 

Max O'Kane Kreutzer posted on 4/15/21

We only knew Jade because she visited us one year while visiting her good friend, Grace, in Chesterfield, VA. Even for the week she visited, it was obvious Jade was one of the most bubbly and warm people we’d met before. We watched Batman together and normal teenage shenanigans. Even though we only knew her this week, we stayed in contact with her, and we deeply mourn the loss of such a wonderful person. No one deserves this. Rest East, Jade- The Kreutzer & Aurand Families

Dear Pat, Suzie, Terry and Bonnie, We were devastated last year, when we learned we would be loosing JW much sooner than we were ready to. But now we realize that God had a place for him a few days ago, an he is now there with Him!....closer to Him than ever before! We hope that that is a comfort to you now, as it is for us. We hope that knowing this now can give you peace, as the same Lord wraps His arms around you to give you comfort. Please know that both you, Pat, and JW were such fun to be with through Shriner's and all those enjoyable meetings, activities and trips to support the Shriner's Hospitals for Children! We especially enjoyed meeting your three beautiful daughters grandchildren and many of your other friends at the fantastic 50'th anniversary party a few years ago. Wasn't that a wonderful event!!! JW sure had an loving impact on a lot of people, didn't he!! And what a worker he was, too! The Hendersonville Shrine Club could always count on him when anything needed to be done! His extremely hard work as co-chair of the Celebration for Children, to benefit the Shriner's Hospitals is to be commended! ...and he truly loved doing it all! Yes he was a very special man whom we will never forget! Don and I eadh send you our love and deepest sympathies at this very difficult time for each of you.

Aunt Pat, Bonnie, Terri, and Susie, It’s hard to know what to say at times like these. I love you all so much and want to be able to comfort you in some way. I want you all to know I looked up at Uncle JW with so much pride, love, and respect. He was a wonderful uncle and a loving caring husband, father, and grandfather. His life mattered to the people who knew and loved him. From the moment he was born he was loved and adored by his mother, father, and brother. He joined the Army and served his country for 20 years. We all owe him a debt of gratitude for helping keep the country safe. He married Aunt Pat and they had three beautiful daughters; Bonnie, Terri, and Susie. Then came the grandchildren so the love and admiration for him continued on. I flew on a plane for the first time with Uncle JW. I was 5 years old and I hope he saw what Bonnie saw when I took my second flight with her. She said I looked like a kid in a candy store I was so excited. It has been an honor having Uncle JW in my life. I will always hold him in my mind and heart! He believed in his lord and savior so I know he is flying high with angels in heaven and walking the streets of gold with god. Love forever, Wanda

Despite our few interactions, I came to know Buddy in a very unique way—through the eyes of his daughter-in-law. JC and I were childhood best friends; her family was my family, and I still consider her parents to be my second mom and dad. I remember when she started dating Mo, and seemingly overnight she went from zero to in love. It was so sweet to witness the beginning of their relationship, but looking back what I find most compelling about that time is the instantaneous, yet profound connection she made with Buddy. For every swoon-worthy story she shared with me about Mo, she must have shared three about Buddy. “Did I tell you the story he told us out in the garage yesterday?...” “Let me tell you what he did for Mo’s birthday last week”... “The other day, Buddy did the funniest thing...” I feel so privileged to know a version of him, just through JC’s stories. And, I can’t think of a better testament to his life. How many people do you know that would take their son’s girlfriend, not knowing if she would be around for the long haul, and make her a part of their family? Share his home with her? Treat her like a daughter? Buddy truly was a special man, the kind of man I hope to meet again one day. Take heart in knowing “No one is truly dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away” —Terry Pratchett. And, I have a feeling that the ripples Buddy caused in this world are not going anywhere.

Edward was a truly gifted artist. His meticulous works were more than worthy of a gallery exhibition. Moving to the Maxwell family farm certainly provided a natural inspiration to create. His talents extended to the beautiful landscaping he designed and planted around his home, built in large part to bring his mom, Gussie, back to her North Carolina roots following the death of his dad, Russell. He was a devoted son. Ed certainly enjoyed the summer reunions of many first cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends. He was our designated ice cream maker!! He will be missed. Sending love and prayers.

I was blessed to have known Dean & have him as my brother-in-law. He was a precious soul who was always kind, caring & helpful to all who knew him expecting nothing in return. Dean was a loving & supportive husband to my sister, Pat and a loving father to his son, Donovan of whom he spoke often with great pride, definitely a "family man". I am so very sorry for each of your sudden & unexpected loss. Take comfort that he is now in Paradise, at peace, with our Heavenly Father where there is no suffering or sorrow. I will keep all of Dean's family & friends in my prayers daily as you grieve the loss of this precious soul. Remember that he will always live in your hearts & minds.

Now,it is hard to believe, that George left such a void in Your life, in Your girls life, in your Mom's life-anybody who knew him. Memories, yes, but memories can never be and will never be enough to lessen the pain. Love you, feel for you, pray for you. Not really Sisters, but Sis, here anytime I can make your pain any less painful. Love you.

Our hearts are broken to learn of Buddy's passing. He was such a kind gentle spirit always, even as a kid. I will never forget him being one of the first to visit my brother, Steve and I when our dad passed away. Two years ago when Steve passed away, once again there was Buddy to share our grief. Buddy was truly one of a kind and he will surely be missed by our family as well as the many other lives he touched. I am bless to have called him my friend. I am sure that Steve was there to greet him at the Golden Gates and now they are fishing together on one of beautiful lakes of Heaven.

I am so very truly sorry…Tom has been despondent … Although I only had the pleasure of having met George a handful of times… He had an innate inherited knack for getting you to say things you didn’t even know you needed to get out… I guess that’s why he was mom‘s “number one son… “ He was a pillar of knowledge without being full of himself, humble yet snarky at the same time… It’s sort of like he could see in you something that you didn’t know you had and managed to get it out of you somehow… He was pretty cool… I know he saved the day at our wedding… Tom was pretty nervous and George’s presence was ever so grounding… I will be forever grateful for that memory. My deepest most heartfelt condolences to you, Stefany, Allison and your beautiful grandchildren

We never imagined there wouldn’t be ONE MORE MAUI trip where we would share Mark’s famous mai tais on our lanai, grill food (you would always bring!!) and hang out for hours just enjoying each other’s company.... and sooooo many laughs.... I know Mark will miss all the good conversations while I would massage Gab. And all the diving fun and sharing underwater camera knowledge ... my heart breaks for the girls and grandkids whom will miss his sage advice ... so freely given. George was there for me in a big way when I was going through a really rough patch in my twenties ... he talked to me for hours and I attribute those caring talks to saving my life... many years later i thanked him ... he had done so much... but he didn’t remember. That’s the kind of heart he had - gave it all with no strings attached. We will miss you George!!!

Dear Gabriella, anybody who spent any time with you, knows how much you loved George and how much George loved you. With the exception of your childhood you were always friends, partners and husband and wife. Together you brought up two strong, smart and beautiful girls and you always, always were each other’s strongest supporters in all the storms of life. I can’t believe that I will never have another „ fight“ with George about politics- just to be welcomed by him with open arms at my next visit. It is so sad for me to know that you, my friend, will now have to walk alone through these difficult times. Please trust that George will be with you, that your beautiful family will support you and that your many friends will be there for you. I‘m sorry to be so far away right now, but you are in my thoughts and prayers always. Alan and the girls send their love also.

In 1981 when I was 17, I bought a yellow '76 Ford Mustang with money i earned working after school the 2 years prior. It was a stick shift (some may have no idea what that is, google it!). I didn't know how to drive it, but it was what I could afford and was in good condition per Navio's assessment under the hood. He taught me how to drive it, and I am grateful for his patience and time.

I am happy that you and Sunny are back together again having many, many laughs. I know everyone always asked for your meatball recipe, but they should know Italians do not have recipes, we use a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Thanks for always taking us on the pontoon boat, the kids loved crabbing and finding conch shells, as well as helping us when the kids were little. I always enjoyed making apple turnovers and pizzellas for you. We have many good laughs...say hi to Suds too. Love, Diane

Navio was a good man and a wonderful husband to our mother, Sunny. Our boys grew up knowing him as "Grandpa Rap" and we had some good times with him and mom down at the beach in Rehoboth and on his pontoon out on the Chesapeake. He was a much loved member of our family and we will all miss him. It's still hard to comprehend that we won't have Rap and Sunny in our lives anymore. God speed.

I watched her grow over the years becoming more beautiful spiritually inside and out. She knew her direction and what she wanted out of life. She could not be more proud of her two beautiful children and every year she sent me a picture of each. I cherished watching them grow into adults. Lori has left a beautiful legacy in her children that will go on forever. God bless and care for each of the family.

My memories of Pete and Gertrude go back to my early childhood years at Bobs Creek Baptist Church. Pete was our song leader and Gertrude was my Sunday School teacher. Thankful for the spiritual impact they had on my beginning walk with Jesus.

I met Alice during radiation for our cancer treatments. She reminded me so much of my mother: elegant, classy, well dressed. I felt as though my mother was with me during this difficult time. We actually looked forward to radiation, just to see each other. The last treatment for both of us was on the same day. That day the machine broke down and all appointments were rescheduled. The team at Pardee Cancer center knew we had grown close and when they rescheduled our last visits, they made sure we were together. Alice loved my dog, Harriet. She made sure I brought her to our visits. I enjoyed baking and cooking things for Alice that she enjoyed. She is a bright light in my life, always. P.S. When you get to heaven please say Hi to my mom!

Clover was a wonderful neighbor and stellar person. Our kids called her "the energizer bunny" because she was always busy with something, either for The Cottages, the church, or the community. She is one of our fond memories of Bat Cave and the folks that live there who made us feel so welcome even as part-timers.

Leslie was so kind, gentle, and generous! I was blessed to work closely with her while she took on school testing responsibilities and then as a Tier tutor. Her heart for children was limitless. She was an amazing friend and caring patient listener. Above all she loved her family, dogs included! Her gentle presence is greatly missed.

I was privileged to have Mrs. Betty Brown as my senior English teacher at East Henderson High in 1968. I have never forgotten her, as she did something very special for me. I was pregnant and needed credit for her class to graduate. She allowed me to come at 4:00 for English. I got my needed credit and graduated, thanks to Mrs. Brown. Then in 1968, my son also had Mrs. Brown as his English teacher. My sister was in The Laurels in 2018 before she passed away, and saw and talked to Mrs. Brown many times. She may not have remembered me, but I will always be fond of her memory and kindness. May GOD surround you with His peace that passeth all understanding. My prayers are with all of you.

Betty Ann was one of my favorite teachers ever. At Wake Forest, we were each to give a brief overview of Sir Gawain and the Green Night for British Literature. My professor from England was so interested in my analysis which Betty taught us a few years before that she kept me speaking for nearly 3 hours over 2 days! I would go on to work as weather anchor at WSPA TV which made her very proud and she asked me to judge the Coon Dog Day parade which I was honored to do for her! She was one of a kind and I dearly loved having her as a teacher and friend.

Mrs. Brown was an excellent English teacher. I will remember her for the passion she had for teaching and I will never forget how nice she was to me over the two years that she was my English teacher at East Henderson. She was very caring, took time to help me with my studies and always pushed me to do better.

Amelia was a sweet friend and co-worker when we worked for the Clerk of Superior Court. She always had a smile and was such a comfort to others when she worked in the Estates office. She made the BEST Broccoli Casserole and every time we had a covered dish dinner at the courthouse, I always asked her to bring it. She told me one day that everyone would get tired of her bringing the same dish! I said "never" because it was so delicious. It is still one of my favorites that I cook at my own family gatherings. Prayers for the family as I know she will be greatly missed.

Charles Alan, you will forever be a light in my memory!

 

Connie Fullhart posted on 2/28/21

Where do I begin....I’ll just begin at the beginning. Charles was absolutely the sweetest and kindest kid, boy, young man, man I’ve ever known. No exaggeration. He was was talented in many ways. I liked to call him the animal whisperer. He loved animals and would rescue the injured and care for them until all ready to release or find a home for them. He was an amazing swimmer! He swam across the Mississippi River and back all at one time. He told me “Halfway back I thought, ‘ I should’ve thought about this a little more.’ “. When we were 12 & 13 yrs old, our families crossed the Mississippi River to spend the day on a sandbar. We took everything needed to spend the day having fun. I oukdnt swim (still can’t) and the current kept pulling me further out until it was getting over my head. Although I screamed frantically for help, it was perceived by everybody that I was just joking, except for Charles. He came running and swam out to me and brought me safely to the bank. He absolutely saved my life. He had a one of a kind sense of humor. He sculpted, he drew, he built. He was brave and stood up for the underdog. He was honest, he was wise. I could go on and on. We grew up together. Our families being friends, we were together almost daily. So I knew him well. He will be so very missed. I called him Charles Alan. So, Charles Alan, I will see you again one day. Until then, enjoy fishing in those beautiful heavenly waters !!

I don’t think I really appreciated my mom until I became a mother myself. In the first days at home with my first son, Joshua, she was there to help me. My husband was sick with the flu. She showed me how to hold this precious new life, how to nurse him. I was surprised how some of the mothering didn’t really come naturally as I expected. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing! But she showed me—after all she had four of her own. She showed me a trick of how to hold the baby, sitting with a propped up knee so I could eat dinner myself! Amazing trick. Then with my 2nd, Michael, who was born 2 months premature in NC away from my home in Ohio, she was there again helping to take care of Josh while I visited mike. Hubby had to return to work in Ohio. And then she came to see mike as well. Holding a premature baby helps them grow! She was an amazing mother and I believe I was a good mother because of her.

During our young family's life, mom was always busy, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry...but occasionally she would build a Barbie Doll house out of a box or teach me an embroidery stitch. I remember one time on Dogwood Dr., while the kids were still young, she hid in the coat closet in the middle of the row house and knocked on the door. We thought someone was at the front door....but no one was there. We heard the knock again and all of us ran to the back door...no one was there! She must have had us run back and forth several times, until we figured it out....we were all rolling on the floor laughing when she finally came out! She may have been hiding to get a little quiet time, but she also had a great sense of spontaneous playfulness.

I occasionally had the pleasure of working with Tony at a skilled nursing facility in Lake Waccamaw, NC. What a pleasure he was to be around! We bonded over our sensitivity to the current state of things and shared similar political opinions while on our lunch breaks. He was a sensitive soul that had a deep understanding of the complexities of human nature. He voiced his sadness at the current state of things and was perpetually concerned. I learned so much from him and still use therapy techniques that he taught me, even though he had no idea that he was teaching. He truly led by example and I am honored that I had a chance to know him. I remember he spoke of his family with affection and was really excited to be going to visit them in his folks’ new home, if my memory serves. The world is a better place having known Tony Case. If we treated one another the way that he treated me then the world wouldn’t know this pain. Love you, Brother.

I had the privilege of working with Don Ray several years back. Actually, he is the reason I got the job and was able to move to Hendersonville. Although I haven't seen him in years, he frequently crossed my mind and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet and get to know him. I will be forever grateful for what he did for me and my prayers of comfort and peace go out to you, the family. Sincerely, Devin Winburn

I also fondly remember our family visits to Uncle Don and Aunt Kate's home in Ohio - especially the "hidden" back staircase and the large open air porch. I also seem to recall that Uncle Don never finished painting that large house - just painted a different section each summer. My Mom (Pauline) & Aunt Kate were close in age and shared much with each other through the years. I always thought they could have been twins - they were so much alike in many way. Together again forever... full lives led.

We await the day when we can say, "Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away...Then I,...saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away...behold, I make all things new.” - Revelation 21:1-5

My Deepest Condolences to the entire Yarborough Family. Dan was a beautiful person very congenial to everyone. He was re-known for his ability to read every green at Etowah Valley Golf Club and if you made the putt after following his advice there would be a giggle coming from Dan. I understand he was one of those involved in starting the Shark Shootout at EVGC and he was re-known by all the golfers that came from numerous states to play in the Tournament. Dan you will be missed I hope you Rest in Peace.

Our deepest sympathy, Dottie, at the passing of your dear husband. I will always remember the many hikes in these mountains with Eben -- especially the Forty Peaks Beyond 6000' -- when he could counted on for a long coversation to help pass the day-long hikes. Our group of ten Forty Peakes nicknamed him "Walkie Talkie". We learned all about his life, his family and the young people he lovingly helped. He was one of a kind. Bless Eben and bless you, Dottie.

Pat always made us laugh with her wry way of looking at situations. And it was always interesting to see the next project Frank had in their yard. We were sad to see her move after Franks death but knew it was a better place for her at Carolina Village. They were a wonderful couple. May sweet memories sustain your family

We were so very sorry to hear the heartbreaking news about Pat Podlipec and wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the family. Although in a better place and reunited with her wonderful husband, Frank, she will be dearly missed! We can't think of a nicer and more fun-loving couple than the two of them when we were square dancers at the Southern Lights Dance Club for many years! Spending quality time and sharing many experiences and laughs together was awesome! Pat was a real sweetheart in her own special way and just as kind as she was beautiful! Her loving smile and charming ways will always be in our heart. It was both a privilege and honor to know the Podlipecs. Now that they are both together, they will be two bright and shining stars in God's holy kingdom looking down on their dear family and friends. Just know that we love you, miss you, and send "yellow rocks" to both of you until we meet again.

Jordan was smart, quick and caring. He was instantly there to help if he saw a need. He was generous and gave freely to others. He loved his family and spoke of them often. i told him with affection that I was going to adopt him. You leave a big hole, Jordan Trantham.

To my absolute favorite and best teacher of all time, Mr. Orr, thank you for your inspiration and your high expectations. As I shared with you many times, you impacted my life and made it better. I aspired to the position of professional educator and used the strengths and abilities you saw in me and refined, to teach my students. All my love and prayers for your family, the Bearcat Family, and Hendersonville. We have suffered a great loss and a heartbreak that will never mend.

Praying for God's comfort in this difficult time for all the family who gave her such excellent care during her long illness. I know Pauline is happy to be at home with Jesus and her beloved Norman. I cherish our childhood memories and will miss having our conversations we had over the years. And I'm so thankful that Jesus made a way to see her again.

The memories...Jordan giggling and playing at French Broad, smiling constantly, always cheerful, running after Jeffory, Jennifer, Chae, Laura, Andrew, Kyle & Charles. He was a joy to watch, laugh with, and hug. Remember the laughs, the hugs, the joys, the love he brought to you. He was an inspiration to me when he was a child. He was energetic, vivacious, bright red headed, and giggled so beautifully. The pain you carry is horrific but be reminded of the breath of fresh air he was! He brought life and excitement to everyone he met. Jordan, may you somehow know we all loved you with all of our being and each of us holds memories of you that has left indelible impressions on our lives. Thank you for giving so much.

You have our sympathy during this sad time!

Thank you for the beautiful card! The poem tells the story of Pat's deep faith and the strength with which she endured loss and illness. I knew Frank and Pat from exercise classes at the Hendersonville Racquet Club and we reconnected with Pat when she moved to Carolina Village. She was always cheerful and we had conversations about the times we shared in the past. She was a gentle soul with a joyful spirit. My condolences to the family and wishes for peace during this sad time.

Thank you for sending the Memorial Card notification. My condolences to you. Pat and I were friends in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin when Frank worked for Boy Scouts of America in Eau Claire. John and Mark played with my boys Kurt and Brad as little boys. We all attended Trinity United Methodist Church and our children were in Sunday School together. Pat and I were stay at home moms and often had afternoon coffee together. This was in the 1970's. Good memories. We stayed in contact on birthdays and Christmas. All the best to your family.

I too have known Pat & Frank for 20+ years. She was a wonderful lady and dear friend. We shared the same birthday and never let each other forget that day. I enjoyed all the gatherings we had together. She was a good square dancer and had her hands full keeping Frank line, as well as other things. She will be missed and I extend my condolences to the entire Podlipec family. Rest in peace with Frank.

Pat and Frank were wonderful friends, and we enjoyed the many trips to the Hendersonville Little Theater with them, always following a dinner at a local restaurant. We enjoyed her published book regarding her family life as well as many of her poems. Her passing, as well as Frank's, leaves a BIG hole in our hearts.

So from then on thats what he would call her when she came to the office. She also sends her love and prayers to the family. Love that we will see him again one day in heaven!

Michelle Gossett-Class of 1992 Mr. Orr was willing to enhance the best potential of any student willing to learn. I gained a passion for Shakespeare through his teaching and passion for Shakespeare. He made learning fun, but he was not tolerant of giving less than the best of your potential in his class. I remember making an A in his class and feeling such pride. I challenged an English teacher in college. I told him as far as English and English teachers are numbered. I did not need validation from any other instructor for the rest of my life to my literacy or competence in English. I had studied under Tom Orr and made an A which to me is the highest honor I will ever receive.

I'm so grateful that she was such a big part of my life. And I'm grateful that after a long, full life that she is finally reunited with her parents, her husband and her sister.

Wendy McDaniel Vislocky posted on 1/13/21

What I have learned about Linda, first and foremost, she is my aunt, cousin by law. My dad, Jimmie McDaniel’s mother Eula Williams McDaniel, took Linda in at 5 years and Marilyn 3, after the loss of their mother from an aneurysm at age 28 and their father by a train accident a year later. Louise was sister of Eula and Aunt Myrtice . Eula took in both girls at once and Little Jimmie, who had been alone on the plantation had immediate two new sisters! But, after a couple of years, when baby Robin was born, it was too much for Eula with Jimmie, baby Robin, and two girls that did not always get along. Myrtice decided to take Marilyn to live with her in Tampa and Eula took Linda to continue living in Tallahassee at Welaunee Plantation. The many stories are way to long to tell! My dad said Linda always blamed him for her various veins in her legs by convincing her to jump out of the top of a hayloft running from Grandma Williams! Also, a few years ago, I met a gentleman who courted Linda while at Leon high school, he was invited out to Welaunnee and stated she took him on a fabulous horse and buggy ride! Even years later, Don Ritchie was still taken by Linda and his memories of her! He even married a Linda!.... Although separated in different homes, Linda and Marilyn were together quite often with their close knit family. Aunt Linda, Uncle Johnnie, Mark and Terry visited often with lots of fun memories playing in Grama Eula’s yard and the house in Georgia. Uncle Johnny and Linda had great senses of humor and when Marilyn and her husband David Johnson were there, there was constant laughter and great times hanging out with Jimmie and Patsy McDaniel, Uncle Ronnie and others! Another great memory, Aunt Linda always remembered my birthday, she always made me feel so special almost like somehow I was secretly her favorite.... that’s how she was, she wanted everyone to feel she was only there for that one person whom she was with. I’ll never forget the warmth and happiness she gave me. The last time I went to visit her was November 2019, we traveled over from Pigeon Forge to visit Linda and take her to lunch. We had a great time! We went to Cracker Barrel, ate a lot of good food and took pie to go! We then drove around sightseeing until she was tired. I always loved how she called my honey or sweetie. Our last call on her birthday was wonderful, we talked about her blackberry pound cake and I sand a very off-key Happy Birthday song that made her laugh that beautiful fun laugh I’ll always remember. I’ll hold onto that call how happy she was! My Dad Jimmie McDaniel, was quite the brother I’m sure with pranks okayed and lessons taught and learned! He has the stories! My memory of Linda of how sophisticated she appeared when she came to visit at grandmas after her and Uncle Johnny meet. We were small kinds then... we loved playing in the huge yard at a grandmas and Granddaddy’s! Linda always laughed vivaciously

Lake Bowen Fish Camp has been one of the highlights of our annual trip to the Maxwell family farm each year. It was never a challenge to persuade JZ to act as chauffeur and as host for the drive through the beautiful countryside to this favorite, delicious destination. Although those visits to the mountains meant wonderful meals with family and friends, they also always included music. (I suspect J was a secret rock and roller). We enjoyed going with him to the Feed and Seed to hear a variety of groups and loved the Music on Main evenings in town. The farm itself was a source of pride for J and for Linda. Maintaining the wonderful property and making sure there were always living creatures to enjoy took lots of time and effort. Rounding the curve of the gravel road and seeing Grandma’s house sitting shaded by those big old trees always made me smile. More often than not, J would be waiting on the porch to make sure I arrived in one piece. He took great care of Grandma’s house so all who visited had a comfortable place to stay. It was the gathering spot for friends and family on special occasions and for occasions that were just made special by being there. JZ and Linda were a devoted husband and wife and I will take comfort knowing they are reunited again. With much love and many memories of you, Kim

Tom Orr was a good friend to me and my family. I was able to move from calling him Mr. Orr when he taught me high school English to Tom when he directed me to two of his historic courthouse plays. I was not involved in drama in high school but always wanted to be. My husband Bill was the actor. I knew Tom would wanted Bill for parts in the courthouse plays and to get to Bill, he went through me! Lol, I was a hard one to teach but he made me feel valuable to the plays. He called me his lucky penny. Tom loved my mother, Beulah Morgan. He interviewed her once for his article. They also enjoy discussing the teenage canteen and changes over the years. Tom was always so happy to see his students. I especially loved catching up with him at the annual HHSAA Hall of Fame Awards. We both loved beach music and shag dancing. Thank you Tom for making me an actress! You will be missed! I hope someone carries out his vision of having bronze statutes on Main Street commemorating folks who contributed so much to Hendersonville. He had mentioned Don Barber and Robroy Farquhar. I think a statute of Tom Orr would fit right in!

Mr. Orr had a woven Thoreau quote hanging on his wall when I was in school: “If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” I am so glad the music he heard kept him in our community for so many years. RIP, good sir. Godspeed!

He referred to me fondly as his “impudent hussy”, a nod to My Fair Lady - our senior play. I played Eliza Doolittle under his direction. He supported and honed my acting training in high school. We participated in many one act festivals statewide and those experiences gave me a foundation on which I still continue to build on. He remained a friend and cheerleader - always encouraging. I will hold on to his memory forever and I am so grateful he was one of my mentors. I will miss him deeply.

Tom Orr was the finest and most inspiring teacher I ever had, from kindergarten through graduate school. I have followed his example long into my own maturity, though I live hundreds of miles away.

 

Alton Connor posted on 1/6/21

I am so deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Tom Orr. Our lives have been connected for well more than 50 years. He was my sophomore English teacher at HHS and we saw each other out and about thru the years at the grocery store, at church, at productions he put on. He was an icon in this community and his physical presence, as well as his vast historical knowledge and his enduring friendship will be greatly missed. I'm thankful that my life was touched by him. I will always be grateful that he thought enough of me to ask me to speak at the funeral of another beloved HHS teacher, Hannah Logan Edwards. I send my love, thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to his family as they walk through this season of grief! We all grieve with his family. Tom Orr, you will be missed by many because you touched the lives of countless many. Excelsior!!!

I am heartbroken at the passing of Mr. Orr. He has been a staple in my life from my childhood as a neighbor to having him as a teacher at HHS. I have too many fond memories of Mr. Orr to list. He was a wonderful man and I learned so much from him that has enriched my life. Mr. Orr will be greatly missed in the Bearcat Family and the community at large. Rest In Peace, Mr. Orr, you blessed our lives!

What I remember the most about my Uncle Tommy was his amazing sense of humor. Even from a young age, I remember his quick wit and storytelling. Many of his stories involved memories of growing up in Hendersonville. I know he touched many lives during his tenure as a teacher at HHS and as a dedicated community advocate in his beloved hometown of Hendersonville. He was a shining example of living a life full of joy and purpose. He will be sorely missed.

I had the honor of knowing Mrs. Morris as both a friend and co-worker back in my college years. She always had a smile and kind words for me and everyone who knew her. She was an amazing role model and truly a gracious Southern lady. Most of all, her love for the Lord showed in every aspect of her life. Just imagine the jubilation in Heaven when she and Mr. Morris were reunited! I thank Cindy, Joe, Jeff, and all the family for sharing Mrs. Morris with me. My life is richer for having known her.

Cindy, Sharon and family—though your mom was really my mother’s aunt, their closeness in age made them seem more like cousins and friends. I remember fondly trips to both Waynesville and Mills River as a child, visiting Aunt Cora and Uncle Neal. No one could make my parents laugh so hard! Your mom had the best laugh, and she laughed with her eyes as well as her heart and mouth. She was always stylish and kind and welcoming. Carl and I visited a few times when we lived in Raleigh—once taking home one of your dad’s barn kittens. We named him Skeeter, and he lived a long and happy life. Your mom touched my life in ways large and small, and for that I will be forever grateful. Rest In Peace, Aunt Cora. Much love to you all, Sandy Graziano and family

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Cora and Neal in their lovely mountain home a couple of times. I remember, one of the trips consisted with four of us sisters, (Alice - Cora's sister-in-law, Kat, Grace and myself.) Cora was interesting in hearing about our trip riding up, as well as, catching up on each of our lives and families. Then, we all gathered in her living room for entertainment. Cora got her AUTOHARP, one of the greatest musical instruments, out. Cora would play and Neal joined her in singing. I heard some of the most rewarding sound, and the entertainment from these two that my ears would experience. Imagine, sitting in a room, in a home in the beautiful mountains, and hearing the chords coming from the AUTOHARP, by Cora's fingers, and the voices of both she and Neal! Well, I will always treasure this honor provided by these two. I am sending up prayers for all of Cora's family! MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

My grandpa was a great guy who loved his family. I have so many fond memories visiting him for holidays and other special events. He always wanted to make sure everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. He would tell great stories of his life and explain life lessons he learned. He also would try to understand what “all the kids” were talking about and try to figure out whatever device we happen to be into at the time. He usually didn’t quite understand but wanted to be involved with what we were doing. I’ll always remember a few years after Keven and I got married when he pulled me aside to ask how I was doing and make sure Keven was treating me well. It was very sweet. Getting together as a family will never be the same again. His passing has left a huge hole and his absence will always be felt. I’m so glad to have had him as long as I did but it doesn’t feels like enough.

Dad would alway have a list of things for us to do when we came to visit. He knew that if he didn't keep me busy I would just waste my time sleeping on the couch. The fist question after reviewing the list was where are the tools to get the job done and anyone that had been to dad's house knew he had the tools. It was the running joke that we needed to call Richards and Smith construction to get that project done. We're all going to miss you and your great wisdom and advice dad.

 

Brenda Richards posted on 12/18/20

My dad cared for his family and people whom he came in contact with during his lifetime. He loved to talk on the phone, visit church members in hospital or nursing homes, loved his church and for many years was the lawn mower guy of the property. In recent years, He would say "I don't have time, I'm retired! He cared so lovingly for our mom when she was sick with cancer and for our step mom at the end of her life. I was so proud of his U. S Army Service in the Korean War and his medals he was awarded. He was one of a kind and glad I have many of his traits. I will miss you dad with all my heart and see you at the resurrection morning when Jesus will come to raise you up and put on your new body in Him. Your favorite text: John 3:16- For God so Loved the World that He gave His only begotten Son that whoseover believe in Him will have everlasting life! Your favorite Hymn: How Great Thou Art will be my forever hymn and memories will come flooding in when I play and sing it it memory of you. See you in the morning Dad and rest in the Peace and Hope of Jesus Christ.

Don was a wonderful man, always giving to and doing for others. He was also a wonderful Hendersonville Community Band member, again following his path of giving and serving. I enjoyed his humor, his talking about his family, and the projection of happiness that he gave to others. Called him Non for years - after his email address Non Dolan. Have missed him very much since he had to leave HCB and will continue to miss him. My love to his lovely wife and to all his family.

My boys, Brad and Ben, both played trumpet in the Hendersonville Community Band as seniors in high school. Don was so kind to both of them, encouraging them as young men as well as musicians. A good man with a huge heart for others.

Grandma, I will always cherish the fond memories of hot days swimming in the pool, knowing you will always having the “good” Mac n cheese (and candy) in the cabinet in the kitchen, spending every Easter searching for the special gold and silver eggs, singing the balloon song in bed on sleep over nights & stopping and renting movies, and making the Easter egg basket cup cakes. I will carry on all these special traditions with Lillian and Eloise. I hope you and Scooter are going for some lovely walks. Xoxo miss you forever and always grandma!

I was a patient at Garrison Family Dentistry for many years. Jill assisted Dr. Garrison on several of my procedures. I always enjoyed talking to Jill and the professional way in which she handled her job. She put me at ease and always had something kind to say. I am very sorry to learn of her passing. She left way too soon. To her family, friends and the staff of Garrison Family Dentistry my deepest sympathy. Gerry Huntley. 828-318-4013. [email protected]

I've known Joe since high school and was very fond of him. We played basketball together back when he was still at Mills River. We remained friends over the years and used to meet up at least once a month at the Mills River restaurant at a breakfast group for retirees. He was highly thought of and contributed immensely to the community throughout his life. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Don and I both graduated from Syracuse University together in 1963. We played in the Syracuse Marching Band together, I believe and if so, we both went to the Cotton Bowl which Syracuse (Num. 3) won by beating the Texas Longhorns, the Number 1 College Team in the Nation. By doing so, Syracuse became the number one team in the nation. Afterwards Ernie Davis, the quarterback was awarded the Heisman Trophy. Don, along with Winford was also influential in my decision to return to the Hendersonville Community Band. I was sorry to hear of his passing.

 

Gail and Jerry Zink posted on 12/13/20

Don and I came up with solutions to many of the world's ills during our trips to and from rehearsals of the Hendersonville Community Band. We hope that someone else will take up that project in his absence. Don was a good neighbor and friend. His compassion for his fellow man was exemplary. The world needs more Don Nolans.

Dear Dot, For some unknown reason I was thinking of Dechert and Bill just now and did a Google search for Bill. I was sad to find his obituary from more than a year ago. Bill was a very important mentor to me and we had many good times together. I will always remember him (and you) fondly and only regret that we did not find the time to visit you and Bill in NC. From the other posts it is clear that Bill was well loved and we can’t ask for more. Warmly, Candy

Paul and I are so sorry for your loss of Gretchen, we first met Gretchen/Jack at the former Alykat Restaurant, when it was on Sptg. Hwy., We started talking one day, they sat behind us, after that with Jack having difficulty walking, we started saving a booth for them whenever we were there which in those days quite often (Paul still had his business). It became a joy to see them, talk to them, sometimes David was with them. Then later at the Alykat on Asheville Hwy, more seating there so when we saw them, we enjoyed "visiting" for second or two., then Jack passed away, Gretchen started having health issues walking due to a fall, I believe, she is a dear dear sweet lady. They both were wonderful to know. Now they are in heaven giving joy to all they know, and seeing Jesus face to face.....how divine. God bless your family and give comfort, knowing folks on earth loved Gretchen and Jack.

My Uncle Bill was a great man and certainly lived a full life. My Mom, Martha, would always describe her brother Bill as a rascal in his younger days growing up and I really believe he kept a part of that rascality throughout his life. Listening to his stories on hitchhiking to caddying at Kenwood Country Club, using dynamite to blow out tree stumps , and hollowing out pencils in order to place ink in them to sell to other students at Purcell High School were just some of the neat adventures he would retell. Do you know anyone else who drove a car with a third headlight in the middle that turned in the direction of the steering wheel? The fact Uncle Bill put talcum powder on the wooden steps leading up to the second floor of his house so his mother would not hear the steps creak when he came home late was genius! He was not able; however , the keep the radio low enough for Grandma not to hear him listen to “Inner Sanctum” on the radio. Uncle Bill was forbidden to listen to that particular show and grandma would catch him every time. Uncle Bill loved his Mom & Dad and was lucky to inherit his Mom’s common sense and thriftiness and his Dad’s mechanical and inventive genius abilities. The family house in Montgomery , Ohio was always a wonderous place that was full of Uncle Bill’s array of things that a kid would just love! A pond with a big raft you could stand on in the summer and ice skate on in the winter with a big bond fire. I’ll never forget when Uncle Bill and his brothers and brothers in law pushed Uncle Jerry off the raft and then Uncle Jerry came back tipped the raft over that the rest fell in the drink too! There were ponies, train ride, a massive aquarium, and tractors just to name a few of the things to do there. If that was not enough at the house …. there was more elsewhere; taking a boat ride on the Ohio River in his boat was always a fun time. I still remember hearing the stories that after everyone woke up on Christmas Morning at Uncle Bill’s and came downstairs; there would be a wonderfully decorated tree with all the trimmings to behold that was not there the night before. I have often wondered where that tree came from? Uncle Bill documented and filmed his family trip to the western states one year and watching filming those great breakfasts at rest areas along the way along with seeing the bacon and eggs cooking framed with the Badlands of the Dakotas in the background was really a pretty sight! Uncle Bill loved his food and in return trips to Cincinnati would find him sampling and bringing home bratts, metts, cottage ham, goetta , German potato salad, Perkins Sweet Cinnamon Cake and braunschweiger. Aunt Carol would always stock up on Anise for her baking. He especially liked my wife’s BBQ and we would always made sure we served it when he was in town. A few years ago when Uncle Bill and Aunt Carol were last in town we visited Findley Market where he could take in the sights and smells of all these items and take some home with him. He also loved to hit the Flea Markets with his sister Charlene on his Ohio visits. He was truly a wonderful person and will be sorely missed. I know he and my Dad are restriking having great conversations up in heaven concerning current affairs and fond memories of the past. We love and miss you Uncle Bill: The Belleman’s Ken, Kathleen, Nick, Rosie and Elizabeth

My earliest memory of Alan is making "roads" and digging "tunnels" with him in my backyard dirt pile. When I was two, my family moved from Boston to Mt Vernon Ave in Needham. Mom was pleased, I am sure, to find that a boy just three months younger than I lived across the street. Aland and I remained playmates and buddies throughout our school days.

Deepest condolences to the family, his dear friend Betty and his beloved Bugger and kitties on the passing of Ed. I was a companion for Ed for several months (until the Corona Virus) and we shared some lovely times. It was football season and Ed was a huge Gamecocks fan. I often teased him that I couldn't believe he got me back into football after 35+ years!! We enjoyed laughs about that and he was proud of it!! Ed was a sweet and kind soul and I will miss him dearly. Rest In Peace and the light of the Lord, Ed.

Our deepest condolences. I've had to crawl in the back of an ambulance on more than one occasion with her when tending to a sick child at school, and once my child at home. She was an amazing woman. She did her job, and left no room for question (because you knew she knew what she was doing), and tempered it with care and compassion. We are a part of the HFD family, and though our meetings there and at other stations, we developed a real love and respect for her. She will be missed.

Janice worked with my mom and dad for a number of years and was just a delight to be with and brought so much to the business, just like it was hers . She always took pride and ownership in all she did. She was such a kind and thoughtful person. When my parents were elderly and frail Janice came by to visit them and bring joy and goodies to them a couple times a week for many, many years. She was my moms “daughter” and confident and they had a very close relationship. She will be sorely missed by everyone that had the privilege and opportunity to know her. Cuz, Rest In Peace. You will always be remembered and loved.

Anne was a very beautiful and kind woman! I went to her home back when Jim and I were in Junior High School for a Halloween party. While bobbing for apples, I went down a bit too far and came up soaked. Anne didn't want me to spend the rest of the evening soaking wet, so she gave me a blouse of hers to wear! Funny that I still have that Halloween memory from almost 60 years ago about Jim's lovely mother! Rest in Peace!

We will always remember Mildred for her grace, kindness, and wisdom. When we moved to NC 20 years ago, we were so grateful for Hans’ and Mildred’s friendship. We had also lived in Hong Kong , and enjoyed having that experience in common with them. We also loved the faith strengthening counsel Mildred would often share with us. A beautiful lady- she will be missed by all who knew her.

We have many great memories of being with Mildred and Hans in Hong Kong and in Flat Rock. We did many things together when we were both expatriates in Hong Kong. They introduced us to the Flat Rock area when they retired there and invited us to visit with them. We decided to retire to WNC because of the help that Mildred and Hans gave us. So we are thankful to consider them good friends. We will be making a contribution to The Salvation Army in memory of Mildred.With love, Gerald and Ann

Lois' kindness and thoughtfulness was demonstrated in the fact that she always kept in touch with another volunteer from the Sandburg Home who was aging and in a nursing home. She knew that I always cared about him and sent him cards as well, and she called me regularly to update me about him. She was a crusader, always working for more comfortable uniforms or other improvements at the Sandburg barn. She will be missed.

RIP Tommy. Just heard of your passing. It is with great respect for the family to share what type of person Tommy was at work. When I first started there, he welcomed me and from that day on, we communicated on a regular basis. He would check in on me or I would check on him and just say hi. His stories were endless and when it was time to get back to work, after talking to Tommy, you were always in a better place than when you first started talking. He loved his family and talked nonstop about them. He was always there to help everyone and always did a sigh and say we will get through this because there were some rough days trying to get through the deadlines. If I always needed anything even if it was not in his territory, he would always call and say, you need help and I can do this. He will be sadly missed and know his spirit will live on in each of his children. What a very nice and genuine man.

I still can’t believe this has happened...Can’t bring myself to say the words. We are so much alike in so many ways and I always admired your strength and conviction, you’re unwavering love for you son and our shared love for his and Nico’s curls. Then there was Our Dale and Our Jimmy. You never complained through all of this nightmare. You comforted us. You fought and held true to yourself. I love you. I miss you. I know you’re here and I expect many shenanigans from you and Dale until we meet again. Throw me a prank from time to time so I know you guys are there. Love you chick! You’re the original Badass!

I was so very sorry to hear of Mr. Berg's passing. I worked for him for about four years (on and off) at Allan's Pharmacy and he truly was a great man. I still have very fond memories of him teaching me different parts of the business and a lot of those lessons have stayed with me ever since. I also really enjoyed going to Braves and Falcon's games with him when we used to charter trips down to Atlanta. My thoughts and condolences go out to his family.

Michael , I regret our family wasn’t closer ( I didn’t keep in touch ) and we didn’t see each other more. I was quite a bit older than you , but you were blood. I remember you coming to help m when I had a terrible water leak ( pipes in the kitchen) you refused to let me pay for anything more than parts. You also came with Papaw and we built the fence around my property( Papaw at like age 85 or so .) It took several days and you manned the auger. You were always willing to lend a hand. You had a big heart! God speed Michael , peace be with you now, and tell papa Taylor and Mamaw I ❤️ them !

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. I Cor. 1:3 My sincere condolences to Ron's family and dear friend, June with the passing of a wonderful man and friend. Ron was so faithful to walk my "Buffi" very early in the morning due to my physical incapabilities whether rain, snow or ice for two years. He truly loved animals and especially "The Buff" as he called her. Ron shared so much of his VERY interesting life of his work and travels around the world and had a phenomenal memory of history. I'm so thankful to God that our paths crossed here in the mts. of North Carolina for these past three years.....he definitely touched my life. I now have the comfort and assurance that Ron is resting peacefully in the arms of his Heavenly Father and he will never be forgotten. "Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." James 1:12 Ron will truly be missed, but not forgotten and I will look forward to hearing more stories when me meet again in Heaven.

I am just now learning of Brian's passing and I am so sorry. Brian was in the dorm room next to me our freshman year at ASU. We had no contact after our freshman year in college but I woke up thinking about him this morning unexpectedly for some odd reason. I casually decided to look him up online and find out what happened to him only to discover he passed away just 2 weeks ago. My heartfelt condolences to his wife and children. I know what sort of a person he was as a freshman at 18 (kind, funny, loyal), but from all the comments posted here I can say he turned into a wonderful husband, father, and friend. He will be missed!

I was so sad to hear about Allan's passing. I had known him since the early 1980's when he was running Allan's Pharmacy in Hendersonville and over the years I have tried to stay in touch with him from time to time either in person or over the phone. Back in the 1980's, Allan helped me out with a number of things and I have always liked and admired him. He was a very special man and will no doubt be missed by many people whose lives he has touched in some way. My sincere condolences go out especially to his daughters Kathleen and Donna and all of his family members as well as his many close friends.

Allan was a amazing boss and friend he was here for so many of my family members my husband, son and so many of my nephews and great nephews they would go to ball games with him twice a year they was his rat pack that is what he called them and they all loved him and would do anything for him. He was like a father to me and my husband, a grandfather to our son and great grandfather to my two grandchildren. We had birthday parties, Halloween parties and Christmas parties together he will always be in our hearts.

On Sunday a very big part of my life past away. I am so sad and broken hearted. I went to work for Allan at “Allan’s Pharmacy”and worked with him for 18 years. Allan encouraged me to better myself and insisted I become a Pharmacy Technician. He became a friend and Was by my side for the duration of his life. All of my extended Family loved seeing Allan and expected to see him at family events. I am So thankful for him being a part of our lives. Allan was with me through the death of both my parents and the birth of both my children. Allan became the God-grandparent to both Dallas & Paige. He encouraged Dallas to become a pharmacist and he got to see him graduate pharmacy school in May on the Computer, because of the virus. Allan never missed a birthday or holiday with our family. He went to soccer games and dance recitals. He even went on some vacation with us, taking Dallas on his first airplane ride & Bungee jumping and taking Paige to her to her favorite place to dance, the Jamboree in Saluda. He took my children trick or treating when they were little and had as much fun as they did. Allan helped me put the greenhouse up at Saluda School just because he wanted to help me, knowing I didn’t have a clue. When Tom needed help erecting a building Allan was there every day until it was up.The list could go on an on. My condolences to Donna, Ray and Donald and to Kathleen and Steve and all of his family. Allan was one of a kind, very kind and a very special friend to me. Allan will be missed more than anyone will ever know. May God comfort you all.

 

Sandra Stepp Hutchinson posted on 10/13/20

Always tried to help people who couldn’t pay for prescriptions I worked there for years and he taught me and I loved him so much.

You hired me and gave me a chance in Asheville during a hard time for my family, and for that I'll forever be thankful. You are and will be greatly missed.

So sorry to hear. Our Condolences to the family. She went thru RCIA with Phil in 2000, we made a friend and shared lots of laughs and stories. She was special for sure. Did not quite know what to make of Bart back then. She figured it out.

Brian dedicated his life to helping others. He was one of the kindest, and most patient people that I've ever worked with. I'm honored to have had the privilege of knowing such a compassionate soul. It isn't just anyone who can help a team of computer phobic therapists transition from paper to electronic medical records without losing patience, but he did. My thoughts and prayers are with his family that meant so much to him. I'll miss you, my friend.

Even though I only knew Brian remotely through an online community and a chat group, he was a dear friend and I considered him like a brother, he was an amazing guy, so kind hearted and I know that he loved his family so much. This is a huge loss and I am shocked, my deepest condolences to the family...

Joe, or Josiah as I knew him, was a dear friend and colleague. I met him when I engaged his services to assist us with rigging our ship for the HBO Emmy award winning series John Adams. Josiah was a great mentor and educator to me and my entire crew, teaching us how to tie knots, splice rope, sew sails, etc. He was patient and kind, warm and always humorous. His presence around our fabricating shop and on set was greatly enjoyed. His expertise was noticed by the director, Tom Hooper, who would solicit Joe's advice from time to time. Joe made an inestimable contribution to the filiming of that Emmy Award winning series, one which his family should be proud of. But then I imaginefor Joe it was just one of a long string of many wonderful accomplishements. I shall dearly miss my friend and will treause the memories of the time we spent in Mechanicsville, VA, back in 2005 and 2007.

Sending our love and condolences to my aunt, Margee Weaver and her sons, Matthew and Michael and their families. I always remember Uncle Carl being in the middle of the action, especially the fun and games, at our many backyard gatherings at Nana Weaver and Grandpa’s home in New Holland. Uncle Carl was a great cook, and together with Aunt Margee and his mother, made the food served at The Barn in Vermont as much an attraction as the skiing! I loved our ski vacations there. Our deepest sympathy to Aunt Margee and her family in their time of loss. With love, Susan and Larry Karper

I never met Jack and after reading his incredible obituary, I should have. He was obviously full of life. When he and Rich meet-up in heaven, there will be one long, knee slapping conversation. Imagine all the lives he has touched? Just teaching mechanics, I’m sure he was modeling How To Be A Good Man to so many young men. His legacy will live on in his children and their children. I’m so glad he got to enjoy those granddaughters. He won’t be physically here but his spirit will continue to watch over you all. What a blessing to have had him as your husband, father and grandfather. Till you meet again, I pray for God’s great comfort to envelop you all.

I met Charles when we were both pre-teenagers at Lake Park Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia. We became good friends and spent a lot of time together, doing a lot of crazy things. We had a couple of other friends in sort of a little clique. Charles was the”brainy” one of the group...always inquisitive...always trying to figure out how things worked. We haven’ seen each other much over the years since leaving Augusta but we did talk to each fairly frequently. I’m the last one left of that “clique.” I’ll miss talking to him here, but I’m looking forward to resuming that relationship in heaven!

I met Charlie while working at the Carl Sandburg barn. He was so helpful, soft spoken and loved the goat kids. He was a Southern gentleman white beard included. We worked together many years and then he transferred to the Sandburg house to guide the tours. He even was asked to travel out of state as a representative for the Sandburg National Historic Site. A wonderful choice.

Charlie was a good friend and mentor. He selected me to be his assistant principal, my first job in administration. I am so thankful for his faith in me. When I was a teacher at Glenn Hills High School in Augusta and Charlie was the assistant principal, the two of us were walking from the bus area after school and happened upon two young men arguing. As we walked by, Charlie said, “Knock it off, guys. It’s Friday and I don’t want to deal with this.” We walked on and the two young men did, too.” He knew which situations could be left alone.

Sherry and family, I am so very sorry to hear about Jack's passing. I live on the other side of the lake from you, and even though I have not had the opportunity to meet you, I have had many great conversations with Jack. My family and I moved here about 10 years ago and I knew of Jack via his "posted" signs about a year before I actually got to meet him. I would tell my sons, "Fon't go over there, that is Jack's land". After I did meet Jack in person and told him about that he laughed and gave me that big grin. I walk down to the lake often and was always amazed at watching him mow that steep bank - he was hard-working and fearless. If you ever wondered why it took him so long to mow down there, it was probably because we were down there talking about old cars. I admired him, my sons admired him, and I hoped that I would get many more years learning more from such a smart and kind man. My wife and I want you to know that if you or your family need anything, you just yell and we will come running. Delane, Shari, Jonah, and Landon

It really looked like a brand new Cadillac Pickup, I'll never forget that thing. Thanks for memory's Jack. God bless the family.

Sending condolences to my Aunt Margee Weaver, and cousins Matthew and Michael Weaver. I have many fond memories of Uncle Carl. When I was young he always made me laugh so much. He could be quite mischievous sometimes! I remember spending a summer in Vermont with him and his family, staying there in the winter too for skiing vacations, and of course I remember body surfing and playing games on the beach with him at the Jersey Shore. And nobody could carve a Thanksgiving turkey like Uncle Carl! Great memories that I will always cherish. May he rest in peace. Love, Scott Weaver

Thank you to the Jarvis family for sharing Jack with us. Prayers for all of you. Regards, Ronnie

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1st Thessalonians 4:13.18

We spent the ‘40’s & ‘50’s together in Miami, Florida, along with Alan Holmes and other youth. He had a crush on my sister, Barbara, (his own words) who was 4 years younger than he. Our prayers go forth for the fond memories and the progress of his luminous soul.

I had the privilege of working with Ryan for awhile at the detention center. He was very kind and funny and a very good guy. An example of his kindness and character that I will always remember is one time I was leaving work and heading to my car in the sheriffs office parking lot. I had a bunch of paperwork in my hands along with several other items, a big gust of wind came and the majority of the paperwork blew out of my arms and scattered across the entire parking lot, some even under vehicles. Even though he was in process of leaving, he got out of his car and helped me pick up every single paper, and insisted that he would get the ones that had blown under vehicles and were going to require me getting on pavement and crawling under vehicles to get. He did this without having to be asked and with a smile on his face. Even joking in attempts to make me less embarrassed about the event. It was obvious in the brief encounters that I personally had with him that he was a good man. I pray for peace and healing of the heart for all of his friends and family. I feel blessed to have been able to know him and feel sorrow at his loss of life. Blessings to his children, fiancé, parents/family.

The first time Oscar and I met Ron was at a Baha'i School in Cheraw, SC. We had become Baha'is only the month before and before we knew what happened, Ron had seen to it that we were on the planning committee for the Schools. Many memories flood in of the ways Ringleader Ron and we others on the Committee would try to create memorable fun for the children and youth. He loved to organize the games; there was a makeshift Slip and Slide; there was a greased watermelon competition; young and old ate from a very long eaves trough lined with plastic spoons and full of banana splits (we had no thought in those days of virus transmissions!). Even as his health was less robust, Ron always found a way to tell others about Baha'u'llah's message of the way to world peace. We will miss that broad smile and infectious laughter.

Thanks Mary Ann for all the time and talent both of you gave to provide the IRS with a great example for all of us.

Dear Edmonstone family, please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beloved father. He definitely was a servant of the Baha'i Faith. I met Ron in 1944, 76 years ago. We were Baha'i youth in Miami, Florida. He left Miami at the age of thirteen and moved to North Carolina. We connected again in 2001 when he was living in Asheville. He moved to Hendersonville, close to where Doris and I live. We have been very close friends ever since. We attended Feasts and other Baha'i events together. Posted by Doris and Al Holmes.

Oh!, what a Baha'i, what a Baha'i, what a Baha'i! Ron came into my life in 1964, Oh! what a lovely man he was! He talked with me about marriage and then slipped out the back door, gentle as he was .... Oh! My God! Remember this man!

to our dear servants and descendants of Ron Edmonstone; we had family prayers at the time of Ron's funeral service. He was a truly remarkable man. we never heard him complain, he was always trying to make others happy and had so much love to give. Now he is in the warm embrace of Baha'u'llah who we have heard also loved to laugh and make others happy.

To the Edmonstone Family I express my sincere condolences on the passing of your Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. What a wonderful obituary all of you wrote that captures his adventurous life. I have many fond memories of interacting with Ron in Asheville at the WNC Baha'i Center. I am praying for the progress of his soul and healing for the family.

Dear Edmonstone family, please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beloved father. As I heard his passing I was reminded of this passage of Shoghi Effendi: “He was surely very sorry to hear of the passing away of your father who was such an old and devoted servant of the Cause. Such persons, at their passing, proceed to the presence of Baha’u’llah and partake of His infinite blessings and divine bounties. They enter into a state which, should we only have the eye to see, we would envy and earnestly desire.” I have fond memories of him. He will be greatly missed. Warmest regards, Behrooz and Sima Sabet

Dear Mary and Sam, Charles T and I just heard about the loss of your precious son Sam. There are no words to express the sadness we feel for you. Praying the Lord has been a comfort to your hearts during this difficult time and will carry you along each and every day, and that you will live in the peace that only He can supply. Melissa Anne and I spent several days in Lauren Hill last month. I wish I had known and could have paid you a visit. Much love to you. Cheryl Haigh

In May 1970, I had just been a Baha'i one week - was 14. Ron took us Baha'i youth for the day out to a park or camp on Lake Wylie. I went off into the woods with a Baha'i prayer book - had my first powerful experience with the Holy Spirit! Was well confirmed. He once told me I should be a leader, but I was too shy then. I step up more now! He was so dedicated to family, faith, and outdoors! What a wonderful family and influence he made! Love and peace to you all! Thanks, Ron!

Mike will always be remembered as one of the few good guys. He was a leader who always reflected integrity, intelligence, and concern in everything he did. He also expected the same from the people who worked for him. His Irish charm was also a wonderful gift. I consider Mike a dear friend and mentor. He was simply the best as a leader and a man. Rest in peace, dear Michael.

Mike, Rest In Peace! I served as Mike’s Assistant Director in Laguna Niguel,where Mike taught me how to be a leader. My wife, Mary and I truly loved Mike as a friend, mentor and outstanding IRS Leader. My wife just spoke recently of the sword fish meal she prepared When we once shared his special swordfish. A wonderful man with a special sense of humor, and his sweet Mary Ann. . Mike, you will be truly missed.

Although I did not know her that many years, I enjoyed getting to know her these last few. She was as sweet as they come, so helpful and thoughtful. Everyone that knew her loved her. She has left a great memory on the earth with so many. I am glad she is no longer suffering and am so very sorry for your loss, Larry.

Mike was a great leader and a better person. He made working for the IRS in Laguna Niguel and Los Angeles very enjoyable. I remember the softball league he organized in Laguna Niguel to build bonds between various IRS organizations, train rides commuting to L.A. and back to San Clemente, dinners with he and Mary Anne in Dana Point, his fiery temper, but most of all his mentoring ( he encouraged me to apply to the executive development program ). He was a great boss a great leader and a better friend. Rest In Peace Mike.

The Mighty Quinn of the XD Class of 75-76. One of the true good guys liked and respected by all who had a great IRS career. Part of the Mid-Pines golf group where the stubborn Irishman, sorry that’s redundant kept hitting balls in the water on the par 3 15th until he hit one over what is now known and forever will be known as Quinn’s Quagmire. RIP peace but get strokes from the Angels. Not sure the angel Maryann you left here would give you strikes.

Mike Quinn was my District Director in Laguna Niguel Ca. He was a fine IRS executive and every employee respected him. We had a fun celebration when he turned 50 because he was the first man in his family to reach that age. Socially, he played softball with our employees and we all enjoyed his colorful golf shorts which we teased him about. Sad to learn of his passing because he was one of the good guys.

I have known Mike since 1974 when he was a Division Chief at IRS Andover Service Center. Two full-blooded Irishmen hit it off from that first day. After Executive Development we both stayed in close touch along with my Lonnie and his Mary AAnn. Ourspaths crossed in the Midwest, Washington DC, but the real memories were at Wild Dunes, MidPines and Virginia on great golf courses. Many of u gathered at MId Pines NC over a 30 year period for golf and surrounding good times, Back to IRS: Mike was District Directo at Liguna Niquel when the Commissioner and I asked him to take on one of the most challenging of IRS assignments at LA CA. He did an outstanding job. I lost a dear friend. God Bless Mike Quinn. Our deepest condolences to Mary Ann.
