I had even worried about Ben, and was very sad to find out that my worries were not unfounded. Ben was always special to me, very helpful in getting my sport psychology golf career going, to include arranging for my first appearance on then ESPN's "Inside the PGA Tour." Without his imprimatur, neither the first nor the next nine appearances would have happened. He was very kind to invite me to his house a couple of times, and we also went out to lunch. i say all this to let you know how kind and helpful he was to the little guys in the golf profession, not just to his esteemed colleagues. Thanks, Ben, and I hope to see you again on the other side.

I remember growing up hearing him sing. My mother grew up with him, he was such a loving caring man. My prayers are with you.

The world is a better place because Mona was in it, and I am a better person because Mona was my friend. Mona's infectious smile could light up a room in an instant, and her laugh was a spark of joy to all. She was always up for a new adventure, and I count myself lucky to have gone on several journeys with her. One of the most memorable being a Christmas break trip to Miami (which turned into months) when I was 16 and she was 18! We had many fun memories during our teen years, and I was fortunate to reconnect with her during the last 10 years, when we were able to enjoy many more fun times. During our monthly "girl's night out", one of her topics of discussion, always included her children. Mona was a wonderful mother who loved Maren and Andrew tremendously, and she was extremely proud of them both. I would like to send my love and sincere condolences to them and the rest of Mona's cherished family. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Back in our Hialeah High School Days I remember Theresa as lovely, fun and full of personality. My condolences to all of her family for their great loss.

Ben was born to talk and was a great golf announcer on CBS. He had an incredible voice that had meaning, like Winston Churchill or Basil Rathbone that made people listen. His Oxford accent, always without script, and his unmatched vocabulary allowed him to say what he thought off the cuff without regard to anyone. The game of golf was denied his talents for the last 20 years because of a riff with CBS but Ben Wright was THE best voice in golf as captured in the movie Tin Cup and in past Masters replays. He will be remembered whispering under the pines at Augusta, his moment under the sun.


Cyde and Sandy Ledford posted on 10/25/21

Bill was a true example of a godly man. The way he sang, testified and prayed was so uplifting. Heaven is getting sweeter every day. Praying that God's comfort and peace will surround each of you.

Prayers for the entire family. Bill will be missed here on earth. I'm sure he is with Carly now. Bill has taught me so much over the years. Such a great Christian man. Love you all.

A good man that is a treasure to those of us that grew up listening to him sing. Part of my life for more than 50 yrs. He has crossed that river.

Freida, Debbie, Misty and family, Donna and I are saddened to learn of Bill's death. He always seemed to have a positive attitude and was a pleasure to be around. He was so proud of his family, and his love of God and you was so special. Truly a unique guy that will be missed by so many. All of you are in our prayers during this heartbreaking time.

Freida, Misty, Debbie and family. We are so sorry to hear about Bill. We loved him dearly, he was always smiling. He was a awesome person in more ways than one, a Godly man and such a witness. May the Lord give you all great comfort during this time but rejoice in knowing what a time he is having now with that precious Carly, other loved ones and especially the time he is now having with his Lord and Savior. We love you all. What a Great Homecoming That Will Be.

Bill, was one gracious man to our family. “May you take comfort in loving memory and the friends and family that surround you.” “May the pain you feel now be nothing compared to joy found within the memories of (Bill) We can't express how much we loved and cherished (Bill). Our deepest condolences for your loss.”

Dr Rymer was a favorite professor while I was a student at Fruitland in the mid 90’s. His story of how a Boy Scout rescued him from quicksand and brought him to him mother is one of the most beautiful examples of grace I’ve ever heard. He was a true man of God, and he will be sorely missed.

Of all our summer vacations in Philadelphia & Upstate NY. Memories of boyfriends she liked in Philadelphia (i.e., Lester). Our trip in a rented convertible to Rhode Island to see all the Syrian relatives. She was such a beautiful person and so much a lady. I will miss my dear cousin greatly.

Linda was such an inspiration to me. Right before she left us to live in God's mansion, she taught me a lesson: Live to do what you love to do, and in humility and love, you will make a positive impact where you least expect it.


Julie Ledford posted on 10/23/21

Linda and I made music together at Fletcher Elementary for many years. She directed the chorus and I did the Orff Ensemble. What wonderful memories I have of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "Yellow Submarine," and "Count On Me." I could always count on Linda as a friend and co-worker who loved all children and gave them her best. I miss making music with you Linda, but know that now you are making beautiful music in heaven.

johnny bush posted on 10/21/21

I do not think i have ever seen her without a smile on her face. I loved running into her from time to time and having those brief moments of catching up with her and learning about what's new. From high school to present, she was one of the most loving and caring persons i have ever known, and i don't think it was even possible not to smile with her whenever you talked to her. she definitely could lite up a room with her smile and caring heart. Truly sadden by this loss for her family. But, she lives on thru each and everyone who loved her or even met her. Until we meet again my wonderful precious friend.



Petra Schörfke posted on 10/21/21

I am so grateful that I got to know you so many years ago through your daughter Myra. You and your husband gave me a home at the time I stayed with you for a few weeks and welcomed me as if I were a member of the family. I am also grateful that I was able to visit you again in 2019 after more than 30 years. But I am also infinitely sad that I am not allowed to see you again on this earth. Thank you for everything! My heart will be with you all the time!

Dr.John Rymer was my first pastor when my family joined Etowah Baptist Church in the early 80’s. He baptized both of my parents, my brother, my sister and myself. Thank you John.


Jewel Adcock posted on 10/21/21

Pastor Rymer was my pastor for 30 years. He was warm and loving as well as intelligent and an excellent pastor and teacher. What a privilege to be shepherded by this Godly man.


William and Tammy Leahy posted on 10/20/21

Sorry for your loss and we are Praying for Comfort during these times..... With Deepest Sympathy


Ken Kirkley posted on 10/20/21

I’m deeply grateful to have been one of his students. I still tell stories about him some 35 years later.


David Stikeleather posted on 10/20/21

I had the privilege of studying under Dr Rymer at Fruitland (1994-1996) and treasured a friendship with him while living on campus from 1994-1995. There is no way to understand or estimate the Gospel Impact of this wonderful Servant of God! Dr Rymer illustrated to us all the necessity of “Sticking by the stuff” as his famous sermon stated! Thank you Dr Rymer! Enjoy your Heavenly reward!


Chris Mellon posted on 10/20/21

Probably the fondest memory I have of Dr. Rymer, besides he and Dr. Tiller trading shots at each other, was an assignment we had for Old Testament where we had to write a paragraph or two from the perspective of any character involved in The Flood and Noah's Ark. I wrote mine from God's perspective and that morning in class, he told me in all his years of teaching at Fruitland, no one had ever written that assignment from God's perspective. He also told me God had given me a special gift to see things from different perspectives and put what I see into words. For a young, inexperienced, and not very confident man, that meant the world to me. He saw something in me no one else ever had and I have nothing but the greatest love and respect for such a great man of God.


Timothy Lee posted on 10/20/21

I have fond memories of Dr. Ryker. He taught me at Fruitland from 1969-1971. I always had great respect and love for him.


Lebron Crisp posted on 10/20/21

When I was at Fruitland in the early eighties I lived in one of his rental houses. The rent we paid was barely enough to pay his taxes and the upkeep on the property. He and his wife loved helping Fruitland students. One of our children was in daycare at First Baptist where Mrs Ryder worked and she payed for his care. If I did any repairs on the house we lived in he would always take it off our rent. One of the most godly influences in my life. He has gone to his reward and one day we will meet again.


Shannon and Nathan Dunlap posted on 10/20/21

We’re so sorry to hear of Tasha’s passing. Our hearts ache for her family. We had many memories on the dance team together and sleep overs that I can still remember 20+ years later. As years have passed we’ve enjoyed running into her only to see she was still her sweet, smiling self . May God wrap His arms around this precious family. We lift you up in prayer and leave you with this promise from Philippians 4:7” and the peace of God, which passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”


Pastor Brian Faison, Gladstone, Va posted on 10/20/21

What a great influence upon my ministry was made by Dr. Rymer. He was an encourager and an extraordinary example of what a pastor is supposed to be. He touched my life and made a profound impact upon my Christian walk. Truly a Man of God.



Christy Dunn posted on 10/19/21

I loved this beautiful soul. She was taken way too soon. I can only imagine how much she will be missed. May she rest in peace.


Brack Rogers posted on 10/19/21

Mr. Rymer was my pastor growing up at Etowah Baptist Church. I lived right beside the church so I saw Mr. Rymer frequently. He was a teaching pastor, staying very close to the text and using scripture to explain scripture. I learned so much about the Old Testament from his teaching mostly on Sunday nights. Teaching us the importance of the OT was his specialty as he knew it so well and taught OT at Fruitland. I appreciated his support of our youth program for many years and yes, we stretched him at times with music and more modern activities. I know he was a big Steelers fan and I was a Dallas fan so he got most of the joy from those battles, the Steelers won both matchups in the Super Bowls in the 1970's. I wrote him a letter in college seeking his advice on something and he wrote a warm letter back to me and I appreciated his effort to do so. Mr. Rymer clearly has a front row seat now with his Savior and I look forward to seeing him again in glory soon. Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master. – Matthew 25:21


Janet Lemmen posted on 10/19/21

John will be dearly missed. He was such an asset to our Sunday School class - even teaching on the spur of the moment when our teacher couldn't make it. His sense of humor was a joy to us all. Today he is with Jesus.



Lisa Ellsworth posted on 10/19/21

A smile that would light up a room ❤️ Such a beautiful soul inside and out.


PJ Coffey posted on 10/19/21

I just met Tasha and her girls upon moving here in April. She was such a bright light and a powerful force of laughter and love. Her children were number one. She had them working with her at the restaurant where we worked or at the Hendersonville Farmer's Market where we always had a laugh every Saturday. Tasha was always bubbly and laughing. She had just returned from the beach her favorite place. She will be missed. I will miss her. She is gone too soon. May she Rest in Peace. I pray for comfort for her family and friends.


Norman and Sandy Boyle posted on 10/19/21

So sorry to hear of her passing she was bright light every time we would see Tasha. Precious mother and she loved Pat..


Robin Stonecipher posted on 10/19/21

I knew Tasha in high school and although we weren’t close we were still friends. After high school we lost touch but life brought us back together again. Our boys played soccer together & Tasha & I would talk & laugh about life as we watched practice. Then life brought us together again when we started working together this year. She was a beautiful person inside & out. She had a smile & a kind word for everyone she met. My prayers are with Patrick & her kids.



Darlene & Alex posted on 10/19/21

Tasha indeed went all out to celebrate special events. Be it a birthday party, a graduation celebration or family/ friend get together. I recall the numerous occasions with tents scattered about. Food, games, face painting, decorations galore….her heart was filled with love and no one ever doubted it. She was beautiful both inside and out. A lasting impact of her love and kindness will last forever. Rest In Peace sweet lady!


Joan Frazier posted on 10/19/21

I never had the pleasure of meeting Tasha, but felt I knew her through her daughter Cassie. It’s obvious she was well loved by all her family and she celebrated and was grateful for a blessed and happy life. Cassie has regaled us with stories of voluminous decorations for every holiday, endless Christmas presents and family gatherings that always included numerous friends. Cassie and the other children reflect the best traits Tasha passed along to them. JOHN 16:22 “Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you”.


Brandi Quinn posted on 10/19/21

Tasha and I were thick as thieves our senior year. So many stories and good times from working at sagebrush and those dance team uniforms to her dropping the clutch out of my beat up old Mazda That woman was never seen without a huge smile and was always a loyal trusted friend. I hate I let the years separate us. Huge hugs and love to her kids, her family, and raised to another Angel in Heaven. You will be missed!

Nate and I moved here in 1981 and Martha and Allen were some of the first neighbors we met. Their example of community and what it meant to them shaped our future here. I spent many hours with Martha talking about this City and it's we could support and contribute to it's highest good. Her love of Saluda, family and friends will forever be etched in the lives that she touched in her 93 years. I loved her as a fellow Saludian and always will. We're sorry for the loss of such a wonderful woman....she will be missed.

Jean Allman posted on 10/16/21

Her mother, Mrs. Janie Coates was my teacher in the third grade and she was great. I still remember the Halloween poem she had us memorize. Mrs. Martha was a beloved neighbor who shared the Pond with the neighborhood, shared her love of teaching and learning with me and her students, and raised three fun-loving children. We rode bikes or skated on the blacktopped street all the time. Many great childhood memories and later Pond memories on Coon Dog Day. I could listen to her talk all day with that faint tidewater accent. She will definitely be missed.


Judith Cheney posted on 10/16/21

I will never forget Martha & Allen's warm hospitality & wonderful backyard parties, picnics, amidst their lovely flowers & rock garden, & their fascinating mineral museum. I painted them in my Saluda painting coming down the street, headed to an International Dinner at Yvonne's beloved Calico Cottage. They they will always be indelible in my cherished memories of a certain glorious time in Saluda. To Myra & all of Martha's family I send my deepest sympathies at her passing.

A few years ago when I was selling honey at the Saluda Farmer's Market, she would stop by my booth. I asked Martha if she remembered me and my class. She said that would never forget that class because Tony Morgan was in that class. Martha has stepped into the hallway and Tony chose that moment to show the class what a hair pin inserted into the electric outlet would do. Lol. Tony got shocked and the breakers were all tripped.

Just saw the news of Horace's passing. I partnered with him at Comax Industries for many years. He was a good Bible believing Christian and I still have the Bible that he and I literally wore out sharing scriptures through those years. I still miss those times and now wish God's comforting and care for all who loved him. Everyone who knew him knows exactly where he is today and will join him again soon in our coming wonderful eternal life with the Lord.

In loving memory of Uncle Horace. I can remember staying with Rhonda, Mitchell, Mark as a child. One evening before Halloween when my mother came to pick me up after supper, Aunt Connie & my Mom told us kids to go out to the front porch, so we did. Then Uncle Horace had a sheet over himself and came around the house in the dark saying “booooo” in a deep voice. All 4 of us kids ran into the house screaming. It’s one of the many beautiful memories I have of this whole wonderful family. I remember his parents Uncle Grade and Aunt Rosa, Aunt Camie Johnson (Aunt Rosa’s sister). A wonderful Christian family to this day. My sincere condolences, with much Love and prayers to the entire family.

One evening before Halloween when my mother came to pick me up after supper, Aunt Connie & my Mom told us kids to go out to the front porch, so we did. Then Uncle Horace had a sheet over himself and came around the house in the dark saying “booooo” in a deep voice. All 4 of us kids ran into the house screaming. It’s one of the many beautiful memories I have of this whole wonderful family. I remember his parents Uncle Grade and Aunt Rosa, Aunt Camie Johnson (Aunt Rosa’s sister). A wonderful Christian family to this day. My sincere condolences, with much Love and prayers to the entire family.

Dear Helen, Cal and I are so heartbroken to learn of our dear friend Ben’s passing. His contributions to the golf world were nothing short of spectacular but his contributions as a wonderful, heart warming, truly honest and caring individual overshadow everything else. Out time spent together in Connecticut at Tallwood and his commitment to coming to the “Harry” were just wonderful days. I’ll NEVER forget our round of golf when he, Kenny, Nick, Stevie and I played the celebrity and decided to set a record for drinking red 12 bottles of red wine! We all left the course that day with the best red wine stains on our golf shirts. To this day I’ve never met anyone else who could tell stories like Ben. Losing his teeth down the toilet and having “Dr Wong” make him a new set so he could do the telecast the next day with Summerhall was the best! So so many belly laughs. Our visit to Asheville and playing 18 with Ben was something I’ll always remember and cherish, you were both so hospitable. God bless Ben Wright. All my love and condolences. Thinking of you often. Ray Embury

Roger and I were dear friends for 62 years beginning at Northwestern University when we joined the same fraternity. He was quite an accomplished and skilled physician in both Vietnam and Hendersonville. But even beyond that he was a special person. Roger was kind and compassionate and made contributions to his community beyond medicine. He had a sense of humor that was unique and delightful. Each of his fraternity brothers had a Roger Story that made us laugh. Roger and I remained in close contact over the years, and I will miss him very much.

Buzzy was a dear friend and neighbor on Surry Lane. He loved petting our dogs when I walked them and after losing his precious wife, I would share our dinners with him and occasionally we would go out to eat. He always had a smile and seemed to enjoy hearing from us after we moved to KY eight years ago. We would call each other from time to time and when my husband and I visited we always tried to include a trip by Buzzy’s. He was certainly a special man and will be greatly missed. We are so sad to hear of his passing. Condolences to his precious family.

I was so saddened to follow Camrin’s journey in the ICU as she battled COVID. As her younger cousin, I had the pleasure of spending time with Camrin through the decades, celebrating holidays together and also watching her grace in dealing with tough challenges, like the passing of her parents, my beloved aunty and uncle. We recently partnered on the sale of some of her dad’s real estate, and it was wonderful to witness how she thoroughly approached different possibilities with rigor, her trademark laughter, and heart. I will miss Camrin and send my deepest condolences to Craig, Traci, and Robin as well as her North Carolina family and friends.

There are many memories I have of Mike, not the least of which was his actions when our daughter, Brie was born. She was born in March during March Madness, and living in a three story townhouse made for many trips up and down to meet both objectives, checking on us and our needs and not missing a shot. There are so many stories both told by Mike and lived. Mike had a special ability and the “gift of gab” that afforded him opportunities to talk to anyone, from all walks of life. He had a flair for the dramatic at times in telling his colorful stories but they kept anyone listening entertained and usually laughing. In looking back through pictures of Mike with Brie, there is no doubt how proud and loving a Dad he was. Mike was truly one of a kind. Your presence in our lives will be missed.

Memories of Camrin's bright smile, her confident prayers on our behalf, and hearing her give an encouraging prophetic word to a friend flood my mind. We remember her laughing around our kitchen table and chatting with our girls. She was patient, practical, and gentle, Camrin was a friend, a mentor, an encourager, and a teacher. She was an integral part of our network of churches. We don't know how we'll get on without her.

Most notably was our trip to Ireland in the midst of the major airline problems which resulted in the lack of luggage for most of the trip. Richard, Peter and I will cherish those times forever. I was glad to have had the chance to visit you and Ben in NC, only wishing I had made the effort to get back again.

Buzzy went with me to the Blue Ridge Parkway to spread the ashes of his sister Marie. She sincerely wanted to be near her husband, whose ashes were also spread there. He was so kind and tender with the process we followed (according to the BRP rules). Such a caring man. I had kept in touch with him since that time in 2019. Last talked with him two weeks ago. He was positive and happy to be living closer to his daughters. I admire and respect Buzzy Hoegger. Rest in peace, my friend.

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Ben. I remember all those wonderful days of golf. My fondest memory being when you exclaimed after hitting a terrible shot that you were playing like a two titted loon. It was such an outrageous characterization we all laughed uproariously. I’m sure other golfers thought we had lost our collective minds. To memorialize the occasion we promptly formed the Royal and Ancient Society of the Two Titted Loon. From a fellow Loon goodby old friend. Rest In Peace.

To the Hyder Family I was very deeply saddened to here of Mitchell's passing. He was one of the most even tempered persons I have known in my life. Mitchell had a calmness in his spirit that always brought me peace. Mitchell was one of the Best Teammates I worked with at Berkeley Mills. There was never a time that he was not willing to help and always had a positive attitude. I feel honored and humbled to have been his friend. God Speed to you Mitchell!

Winston Hefner posted on 8/26/21

He was married to my cousin Olin Hefner's daughter Gwen, and I don't know how he fit in with her mom and dad, but I can tell you this, each one could tell a lot of stories. First met Mike at a Fourth of July Hefner Reunion not long before he started having his health issues, and he made a great impression on me. There's one thing for sure he led an exciting life, so sorry to hear of his passing, and there's one thing for sure he loved his Brie...


Becky Chewning Garnett posted on 8/25/21

Brie & David, Your dad's legacy will live on in the forever etched memories in your heart. Share those memories and times with your boys. I remember going four wheeling in Uncle Mike's jeep on the power lines near Granddaddy & Grandma's. It was blue if I remember right. Uncle Mike driving, Uncle Irvin riding shotgun with JR, Wayne & myself on the backseat. Giggling and laughing the whole way; bouncing off the seat attempting to hold on tight. The wind blowing in our hair and faces. Well, we hit a bump and little too hard and JR'S nose hit the roll bar. His nose started bleeding. We went back to the house to put ice on it. Boy Aunt Scherry was mad! The ER doctor had to set it. JR's nose was broke. But we still had fun. It was worth the memories. Also, I tasted my first Heineken with Uncle Mike. Too this day, everytime I see a Heineken commeecial or on the shelf I think of him. A smile comes across my face and the memory warms my heart. We probably had a taste of Granddaddy's homemade wine too! He was always playing games with the nephews and nieces, smiling, laughing having a good time.

I'm glad that when he passed, he was doing what he liked with people that he liked. Sorry for his loss to his family.

I met Frank at On Target Pistol Range. He finished shooting as I was talking with Jeff the shop owner. Jeff asked Frank his last name for range membership. Frank said KRAMARSKI. I looked over at Frank and asked "What's you last name?" In typical Chicago style Frank replied "KRAMARSKI, Got a problem with that?" Jeff looked a bit startled at two strangers sizing one another up for a gun fight in his shop. I said " Let's back up, my name is Mike DiLuigi. I'm from the south side of Chicago. My mother's maiden name is Obcowski and I have not heard a Polish name in a year. It was like music to my ears". We shook hands and he explained he was also from Chicago. Jeff laughed and said " It must be a Chicago thing. One minute you are about to draw guns and the next you two guys are like old buddies". We all had a good laugh. Now for the rest of the story. I went home for dinner and told my fiance' Vickie, I met a guy from Chicago. Last name is Kramarski. She had a funny look on her face. I asked "What's with the look?". She said that earlier that same day, she had interviewed Louise for an accounting position at her firm. What are the chances? We have been friends ever since. Frank was a good man, a dear friend, devoted husband and loving father. His friendship was a treasure and he will life forever in our hearts.

What a beautiful photo and tribute! Uncle Frank was always kind to me personally and the infectious love he had for his beloved ( Aunt Lou) was my favorite thing to see! A couple who lasted the tests of marriage, kids, life and all the things that brings… his passion for her warms my soul… A great man , a loving husband, father, grandfather and uncle… I treasure our time together on recent visits and watching them laugh and take each day as a gift! Truly a remarkable career of serving and selfless care for others! I am grateful he had such loving family surrounding him every day …..that they took that as a privilege to keep him safe and well In his final years… His son and his wife did such an amazing job loving him every single day… so “Butchie & Tracy…. You are blessings for sure! He enjoyed and spoke to me how much he enjoyed being with you guys every day . He is now in heaven and with no pain….my love and support to you all …. Rip Uncle Frank….

Dear Harry Papazian Jr family My mom, Bessie Paul, grew up in Cornwall on Hudson and knew the whole Papazaian family. She was extremely sad when she read the obituary on Harry Papazian Jr in the Cornwall local paper. She talked about the family every day since she read it and told me stories she remembered of them. I asked if she wanted to contact your family and share her memories but she didn’t want to, I don’t know why. I sadly share with you that my mom passed away last month on July 6, her birthday. Even though I never met any of you, I share in your loss through my mom. Katina, Bessies daughter.

Kevin was one of my best friends. He was a brother to me. My biggest regret was not being there for him towards the end when he needed people that loved him the most. I’m sorry for his mom and sister and step dad. I’m sorry Savannah as well. I feel the the most sorry for his 3 boys. They will have to grow up without their dad. But I will always be there to tell them about their dad. I’ll tell them how funny he was. And how awesome he was. There is no one like Kevin. I love you brother! I will always remember you and all the good times we had and the laughs we shared. I’m so sorry Kevin

I remember when Leland led a group of us Dove Hunting that I was allowed to be a part of when I was just a kid. There are many fond memories of Leland who wore a big smile and was full of adventure. I always enjoyed the Family Reunions and watching the 4th of July Fireworks from Leland's hangar when I was able to be there. The last thing I remember Leland saying to me a couple of years ago was "Do what you love to do!" Betty, Elmo, Barry & Susan, I wish I could be at Leland's Homegoing Service. I love you all and may the peace of God flood your hearts and minds!

When I first met Ron, he and I were working for the Henderson County Board of Election for early voting at the early voting site at Etowah. Ron would sometimes ride his red three-wheeler to come to work. One of my greatest memories is when Ron would recognize that a new 18 year-old voter would come into to vote, and say, “First-time voter!” It was a wonderful time. You could just hear the pride in his voice when a young voter came into to vote for the first time. Also, Ron stayed up many nights to cook bar-be-que for the Shriners to make money for the Shriners Hospital in Greenville. Since our-great niece had been taken care of by the Shriner’s in Greenville since her birth, we had a wonderful connection about his care and loving for the children at the Shriners there. Ron also was part of the Shiner’s Apple Fest Breakfast at the Methodist Church to raise money for the Shriner’s. In addition, Ron was a great wood-worker. One of my most treasured gifts from Ron is a pen which he made out of pecan wood, which I chose because the pecan wood is a special tree from Texas. I will never give that pen up. Ron was a special person. He made a special place in my life. Thank you, Ron, for all you have done for Henderson County and the Shriners. I am going to miss you very much. In your “quiet’ way, you helped to make Henderson County what it is. I will never forget your laugh, smile and humor. Jim and I will miss you very much.

What a legacy he left behind for many people! I am so glad that I knew him.

My prayers go out to Cory and those precious children. Brianna touched the hearts of so many by showing us her love for her high school sweetheart and their beautiful children. She had a passion for showing others how to live healthier and have financial freedom but most of all, she showed us her faith in God always. Eventhough we may feel cheated that she is no longer with us here on earth, God had greater plans for her. See you on the other side sweet mama!

My Dad, the late Francis Huntley from Fairview in east Buncombe county, was also born in 1921 and also served in the Army Air Corp. in WWII. He was on the island of Tinian and was part of the ground maintenance for the Enola Gay and other B29s. Such a small world! Perhaps he and Mr. Collins met some time over the years at a reunion. True American heroes. I realize that more every day after what happened January 6 at our precious Capitol. They gave up part of their youth so we could be free.To the family of Mr. Collins my deepest sympathy. Gerry Huntley. 828-318-4013.

Very seldom in my 63 years of life have I ever met someone that no one, absolutely no one, had a negative thing to say about that person. Brianna was one of the few. Such a sweet caring person, always a smiling face, always ready to help someone in need and a person who dearly loved her husband and children and showed that love whether with them, talking to them or talking about them. I will miss our occasional chats on the computer but as I read the comments from others, I know that I will see her once again "in a little while". I pray for God's comfort because as humans we have no words to take away the pain of the loss of someone that touched so many people's lives always on a positive way. It is so difficult to quit writing about Brianna. There is just too many good things to say. God Bless those that she left behind..

Ever since I met Ron I just knew he was the kind of friend that would have your back and stand up for you if you were right. We worked together for several years and he was a hard worker and made work fun. I will always remember him as a great friend. I couldn’t visit him in nursing home after COVID until a few weeks ago and he was very weak. When I left he reached out with a strong handshake. I left with tears knowing I would probably lose a great friend before I could get back. God bless Fran and his whole family.

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.”

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.

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.

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. .

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.

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!

I'm so sorry to hear of his passing but I found the Doctor who brought me into this world so many years ago, who knew? May his spirit and love of life be lifted up and praised and shared with all who have passed and knew of him before. I hope the best for the people who he left behind and my sincere condolences go out to all those left behind, I just wished I had gotten the chance to get to know the man who brought me into this world, Thankyou and RIP

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.

Gwendolyn Dowsey posted on 6/30/21

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.

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.

If you ever needed a story or a joke - Ralph was there. If you ever needed advice on what club to use or how to play the rough - Ralph was there. If you ever had a life question - Ralph was there.

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 so sorry for your loss, he was a truly neat guy. Thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Adams family.

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 miss you terribly as well and I’m sad I don’t get to see you anymore. I hope I’ll see you out one day so I can give you a hug because no matter how bad things were, a hug from you could always make everything right in the world, even if it is only for that moment.

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

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! With our sincerest condolences to Martha and the Wells Family, Howard and Carroll Young

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. But above all else he will be remembered for his obedience and faithfulness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sending hugs and prayers to Martha and the entire family.

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! I know Kim and Tim will be comforted knowing many grieve with them and pray for them.I truly miss you ! Linda

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.

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.

We are so sorry to learn of Tim’s untimely passing. He certainly fought the good fight on this earth during his life . We always counted him as a friend since all the way back to the eighth grade. May God comfort the family now and in the future.

I just have no words that are sufficient for this kind of loss. To see your sweet Jade and my sweet Lex standing together in the West Spirit Week picture here.....breaks my heart. Two beautiful, beautiful souls. I remember Lex talking about her friend Jade. Love and prayers to all who mourn this indescribable loss. "It's not's until next time." Lexie's Mama

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.


Bruce A Mackintosh posted on 4/15/21

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

I remember being in science class with you just laughing away, and getting in trouble with the teacher for laughing. You never failed to light up a room with your smile and contagious energy.

We stayed at Walt's inn many times in the 90's and early 2000's until we moved to Texas. We always enjoyed every minute we spent with him. His retreat by the river was a great weekend getaway. I knew the inn had closed but didn't learn of Walt's death until 2021. He's still alive in our favorite memories of staying with him in the wonderful Bat Cave/Chimney Rock/Lake Lure area.

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

Brandi Martin posted on 4/3/21

My time spent with Buddy was limited. We spoke occasionally at birthday parties, and once he rescued Mo, JC and I after a particularly silly night out on the town (my idea, I’m sure). 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.

Go figure only the Murphy’s and the Ball’s would know. Take care my friend and live on your dad’s legacy as it will be shown in everything you build in life.

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.

Buddy, you were a second dad to me. I will always be thankful for having the best father-in-law that a girl could ask for. You always brought a smile to everyone's face and that will always stick with me. We will see you again in Heaven one day. I love you.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved , still missed and very dear. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, LOVE leaves memories no one can steal. Gaby, my deepest sympathy to you and your girls and family. My thoughts and prayers of peace are with you.

Dear Gabriella, honestly can not even express my sorrow for you and your family. Friday was talking with Mommy, and like always, praising you and George, how good you are to her. 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.

While I did not have the pleasure of meeting Buddy, I can tell from his son Blake what type of father and friend he was to those who knew and loved him. Buddy’s love for life, his strong work ethic, congenial personality and helping his community will live on for years to come. I send my deepest condolences and sympathy to his family and friends. Buddy can now rest with the Lord as he continues to watch over all who loved him.

Love you so much dad. I just feel like the world should stop now.


Mark Middleton posted on 4/1/21

So so sorry to see this and to realize that our great George has moved on. I really enjoyed George's wit, intelligence, humor, care for his family and real-world experiences. I had really hoped to spend more time diving with him and just hanging out and talking with him about Abraham and living pono life :). I'm so sorry that George is gone. We toasted several to him on the lanai Saturday night, so many fun times there with you two. Our love and aloha to Stef and Allison and all the grandkids as well.

Evelyn was an amazing and inspirational lady. My wife and I met her in Hendersonville in the 1990s, while she was serving as the President of Blue Ridge Literacy Council. She was a caring, intelligent and hard-working lady who supported our community with all her heart and soul. Her husband Bob adored the ground she walked on. They will be cherished by all those who knew. Heart-felt condolence to the family!


Gale Souther Barnett posted on 4/1/21

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.

Rap was tough as nails and had so many great, funny stories. Took bullshit from no one. A special memory I have of Rap was when he gave me his recipe for Ricotta Cake. He had it hand written so nicely. He even ended the recipe with the words “Eat and Enjoy” It was one of the best cakes I have eaten. I hope your eating ricotta cake with Sunny in heaven! ♥️✝️

We are so shocked and saddened to hear that George passed away. Every time I run through all the names of the 7 Greene siblings I still say Jack, George, Barbara, Jim, Marilyn, Tom, & Shayla. You are so missed and will be in our hearts forever Barbara and Ken Bradford

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


Susan & Paul Mason & family posted on 3/31/21

Gaby, Stephany, and Allison, We were so shocked and upset to hear about George’s unexpected passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time. Hoping that the many wonderful memories you have from over the years will sustain you through your grief. Hugs to all of you, Susan (Farmer) Mason & family


Shayla posted on 3/31/21

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!!!

Chris , thank you for your service, and your friendship. I am really going to miss seeing you, and having someone to give me a hard time. I pray for your family and friends that are still here, and I pray that you are no longer in any pain. I'm going to miss you buddy.

Dear Gabriella, Stefany, and Allison, I’m thinking of you all so much right now and can hardly believe the news. For my entire life, there were always the four of you, the Greenes, that felt more like extended family than just friends. I can’t believe there are now only 3 of the original 4. Gabriella, you and George built such a beautiful life and a wonderful family that has only grown larger and more wonderful with time. I know you all brought him great pride and joy and filled his life with love. Sending so many hugs to you three during this difficult time.
