I can’t believe I didn’t get a call that you were in hospice . We talked every 2 -3 weeks and I would have been there, but maybe that’s why I didn’t get that call . I have so many memories with you . I went through your parents passing and your brother Dick when I made you go to SC and you got your brother in hospice with the help of his daughter. I know you have gone through so much in such a short time . There will always be those funny memories that I will never forget , especially the time you got the fish hook caught in your ear lobe and you told me to take the needle nose pliers and get it out no matter what . I truly wish I would of known about your memorial . Rest In Peace My Friend , I will never forget you . Susan

What fun times were shared with Penny. Both of us enjoyed playing bridge and whenever a game was suggested, we were available. Winning was never as important as playing. Twice a week was an always, overage happily accepted. When LYC volunteers were needed, Penny’s hand flew up. Besides bridge, Penny was always busy, from New Year’s Eve parties to knitting.

Beverly, Dawson and Landon may the good lord watch over, protect and be with you guys through this hard time, i am very sorry for what happened. I will always remember Richard and his voice and how we were the best friends. Every morning I would run into him at the op center and he would have the biggest smile on his face saying ‘Tyler son, whatcha doing’ we would always pick on each other about getting each other breakfast for one another! He’d say boy you didn’t bring my biscuit! I loved Richard, he has taught me a few things in the power line industry and help my start my career with duke energy! He was the one I look up to, he was a very great man and will be dearly missed!

When my family moved here in '95 I met Jay. His yard was always full of animals. My son would visit a horse and marvel at the eyes of his goats by We met Jay in '95 when we moved in across from his mini farm. My son would like to pet the horse and the goats next to Early Rd across from us. He was always friendly. Rest in Peace Jay. We will remember you.


Alice and John Comer posted on 5/18/22

We are so very sorry to read about Penny’s passing. Penny was such an integral member of LYC. She was a mentor to me when I served as Women’s Committee chair. She was a talented knitter and was happy to share her knowledge and skills with others. She was secretary during John’s Commodore term and kept him appraised of all important information. Five past commodores were eager to nominate the Hahn’s for Emeritus status. When I last spoke with her in December Penny reminded me of our sailing lesson experience of capsizing in the Puffer and we still had a good laugh. Our prayers and thoughts are with Fred and her Family. Sincerely Alice and John Comer


Bob & Kate Fierro posted on 5/18/22

Condolences to the family. The LYC race committee will miss Penny at the finish line. May her memory be a blessing.


Joe & Judy Farfalla posted on 5/18/22

Penny was such an integral part of LYC. She was on the membership committee when Joe & I were chairpersons & had been for years. As secretary you could always count on her to ‘record’ the meetings on the recorder she always used. Penny could be seen volunteering at various events. My funniest time spent with Penny was our decision to take a sailing lesson on one of the club boats. We capsized & tried to get back in the boat, but we were laughing so hard it didn’t go very smoothly. We will miss her & our heartfelt sympathies go out to Fred & their family.


Joe & Judy Farfalla posted on 5/18/22

Penny was such an integral part of LYC. When Joe & I were membership chairs Penny was part of our committee & had been in previous years. She was a great secretary. I remember she used a recorder at meetings so as not to miss anything. You would always see her serving food or volunteering at various club events. My first & funniest time with Penny was our decision to take sailing lessons on the club boat. We capsized & tried to get back in the boat, but we were all laughing so hard we didn’t make it! We will miss her & we send our sincere condolences to Fred & their family!

I worked with her in Membership and I remember she and Fred for years on WPI as well as LYC The Wright family owned a home just down the street from their “Swiss Chalet” style home on Pershing Blvd! Many memories Enjoyed Penny’ s energy and spirit! I did not know she was an educator and supervisor which does not surprise me one bit! Peace, Suzy Wright and Brian Emmanuelle


Pat Wright posted on 5/17/22

The first time I met Penny she was House Treasurer as my husband I were House chairs at LYC. She later went on to be the Club Secretary when I started creating the LYC directory. She was wonderful at both roles and helped us immensely. Later she taught me how to play Mahjong, a game I now love. I will miss you!


Phyllis Arrington posted on 5/17/22

I met Jay & his family when we moved out Warrior Mountain on Earley Rd. He had that huge barnyard of all kind of animals, ducks, and fowl. His peacock screaming would make the hair on my harms stand up. Jay was always kind and would help us out anytime we needed it. He pulled my car outta my yard one time when I got it mired up. My daughter, Melinda, would go over to visit Jay with her granddaddy, Roy Morgan. Jay would lead her around on a small donkey & let her play with any thing she could catch. Roy Morgan and Jay were best friends. You're home now Jay with Ronda. Rest peacefully.


Kathy Tucker Searcy posted on 5/17/22

We are so sorry to hear of Stan's passing. We were so close to Stan and Gail many years ago (1970-1971) in Towanda and Sayre, PA. Spent nearly every weekend together. Stan and I honed both our BBQ sauce and our miserable golfing skills week after week. Stan I guess became a BBQ expert - I doubt either of us achieved much success with our golf. Cathy and I were just talking about those days this weekend and the fun times we had when we were so young those many years ago. Time flies and our lives are fleeting, but we do not forget those who were important to us and who leave good memories behind. Best wishes and God Bless to you Bradley. P.S. if you wouldn't mind, please email us with information about your mother.

I had the pleasure to meet Wilma 10 years ago through our volunteer work with WCC. She was unapologetically herself: lover of coffee, a good G&T, and spending time with family and friends. I will miss her daily coffee posts, groaners, and kind soul. Wilma, I know you’re having some spectacular reunions up in heaven while still looking out for us here (while making sure we get into a proper amount of mischief). I will remember you always.


Daniel Dunne posted on 5/14/22

I just heard of Isaac's passing and had to leave my condolences. We worked together for several years, and I sat right next to him, so we got to know each other very well. He was a good friend and a good person, always willing to lend a hand or an ear. Always ready with a smile or a joke. He is greatly missed.


Pam Harris posted on 5/13/22

I met Wilma thru WCC & the Asheville Pack back 2018! She welcomed me to WCC & I will fondly remember our get togethers via zoom to do Zentangle & dot painting! She was hilarious & did have a great laugh! Our last get together was just a few weeks ago for a sushi meal at Umi in Hendersonville! We shared our laughs about the pups & what was happening in our lives! Loved her fb posts & our next WCC graduation will not be the same w/o her but I think if there’s a way she will send us a sign that she is watching over us! Until we meet again Wilma! Love, Pam

Barbara was a dear colleague at George Mason Regional Library. We shared a love of reading mysteries, baking and cats. She shared her recipe for Deep Dark Chocolate Cake, simply the best cake ever and essential for birthday celebrations since the first taste. I will remember Barbara for her grace, her kindness and her gentle humor.

We got to know Mr. Levi when a close friend was in the same facility as Marsha. For approx a year I was priviledged to watch Homer as tended to his daughter Marsha. Day in and day out for years, he drove across the county to pour his heart and soul into her in a variety of ways. I watched as he came in her room. The sound of his voice caused visible joy and excitment in her mind and body. He was her reason to live with joy and expectancy. The sight of her and the squeels she let out when she heard/saw him, gave him unmistakable joy. She gave him reason to live! Neither cared what the other could give them, they just wanted to be together - 2 people who had an authentic intimate connection - true love and devotion. Watching them over time was so inspirational. I stepped in to hang out with Marsha a few times when he had appointments etc. I got very little reaction from Marsha. I understood but it was intriguing. Mr. Levi was a rare for-real godly man who had his priorities 100% in order. So thankful to have known him and to have witnessed his devotion to his daughter.


Maggie Belsan posted on 5/13/22

Barbara's love of mysteries and her recommendations meant a lot to me when we would meet with other friends on a monthly basis for coffee and booktalking. She was amazing with all she could remember about characters and plots. Her dry wit was such fun!

I am sending my thoughts and prayers to all of Ruth's family and friends as you adjust to a world without her loving graceful presence walking this Earth. She was a wonderful woman who was devoted to family, friends and all of those whom she met with a smile! Her cooking was always a joy to share especially because it meant you got time to share stories, laughter, comfort and love with her. She was always ready with a smile when you met her and a kind word. She was so proud of her family and friends. I remember many shared moments around the table eating, talking or playing cards. She listened with an open heart and gave advice when asked with truth and kindness. Ruth's heart and soul were always on display for those who were near her. Her memories will live in my heart and soul as long as I walk this Earth and beyond! My world was forever changed because I knew her and had the grace of her loving presence in my life! Honestly, I always thought of her as an Earth Angel. i like to think of her looking down on us now watching over us continuing her legacy of loving, nurturing, and guiding us only now she has no pain because she has just transitioned from Earth to Heaven. May you find comfort in your memories of her especially the sound of her laughter and the sparkle in her eyes! I am grateful for the Elizabeth house who helped her transition and all they have helped over the years! May we all find our own way to honor her by living lives that would make her proud! She will be greatly missed. Love, hugs, and blessings to her family as they walk a path through this challenging time.

She was a part of my life from the day I was born. Her and Arthur were my 2nd parents. From the camping trips, the beach trips, the ball games, church, and family dinners, they were there for me and loved me as their own. My life is filled with memories of her baking me pineapple upside down cakes, reading to me, teaching me how to garden and cann vegetables and being there for me no matter what she had going on. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Ms. Hazel, Jim, Alicia and family. I love you mommy and will never forget your love and kindness.

I've only known Wilma for about 10 years, but it seems like I've known her my whole life. We bonded through the Warrior Canine Connection and she was a fellow North Carolinian. We began having gatherings in North Carolina and we had so much fun. Wilma was loved by so many and we all had so many fun times. However, the WCC was not her only volunteer work - she was involved with many other organizations and made a difference in so many lives. I miss you, my dear friend. I so much enjoyed our conversations and visits. Love ya'!

It’s taken me all week to write this. I cannot believe Wilma is gone. I met her through WCC about 10 years ago- but feel like I’ve known her all my life! We connected through the WCC mission but had so many other things in common- like our love of a good Jersey Diner!! I could always count on her to read a situation and know exactly what was needed and how she could help- even if that help was a spot on sarcastic remark for the moment!!! Oh the fun we had- she had such a smart wicked sense of humor!!! I told her once I wanted to grow up and be just like her- and that is still true!! God’s speed Wilma- you were a good and faithful servant!!

I was a friend of gene since 1995, I started at ford and worked on his line and we became good friends throughout those years. The last time I spoke with gene was sometime at the end of March 2022. When I noticed his phone was going to voicemail I knew something was not good. My condolences to the family. I'll never forget Gene, and I told him I'd be up there right behind him so keep the gate open for me. Gene was a great guy and great setup guy. I'll miss my friend, god speed my friend.

Wilma and I were Facebook friends but we had so much in common we decided to get together with a few other Facebook friends for coffee, stories, and laughter. It was a great afternoon and we talked about our love of animals and rescue work. We continued as Facebook friends and shared silly cartoons as well as tales of great heart and caring. I will miss her and her wonderful sense of humor so much.


Lisa Pendleton posted on 5/11/22

To say losing Wilma has impacted MANY, MANY people is a huge understatement. Wilma was larger than life and loved by everyone who knew her. She was my warrior, my touchstone, my friend. God how I’ll miss her. Thank you, Wilma for the love, the laughs, the talks, the politics, and for being such an amazing woman. There are very few in this world like Wilma and I’m so very blessed and grateful that I could call her my dear friend. Rest well, Wilma….until we meet again.


Kim C posted on 5/11/22

I met Wilma through WCC. I saw her every September when the EPW's gathered for graduation. She had a way of making every person she met feel like we were special and important. She cared about everyone she met. She volunteer and raised awareness for many causes. Never asking for anything in return. I will think of you each morning when I drink my Christmas Coffee from Baltimore Coffee and Tea Company. You introduced me to new spices and coffee's. I will miss you and 'Rabbit Rabbit'.


Lisa Pendleton posted on 5/11/22

To say losing Wilma has impacted so many people who loved her would be a huge understatement. Wilma was larger than life and I for one will miss her light. She was my warrior, my touchstone and a fierce, funny, and strong confidant. God how I’ll miss her. Thank you, Wilma for the love, the laughs, the pep talks, the politics, and most of all your friendship. There aren’t many in this world like you and I’m so very grateful I was blessed to know and love you. Rest well, my dear friend….until we meet again.

I met Wilma in person only once. She was the same feisty, funny person as she was online. The day before she left us, she made a contribution to my birthday fundraiser to help feed people caught up in the war in Ukraine. And that’s who Wilma was: feisty, funny and caring. Miss your daily coffee memes, Wilma.


Alice Finn posted on 5/11/22

I met Wilma at a graduation gathering for Service Dogs. She just knew how to make you feel comfortable from the first moment you spoke with her. Wilma was a of a kind Jersey girl and loved by all. Miss you Wilma.


Karen Maitland posted on 5/11/22

As another member of the "Facebook people who knew Wilma because of our shared love of service dogs group" I can only remark on what a huge crater has been left in our lives with Wilma's passing. Wit and wisdom, coffee and commentary, simpatico and sass - what a blessing to have had our paths cross, even if only virtually. For all who knew this remarkable human, her memory will always be a blessing. The second cup every morning will continue to begin with a thought of all I learned from this most special person. You are loved, my friend.


Kit S. posted on 5/11/22

Oh, I miss her. Something special...that was Wilma. Although my relationship with her was mostly virtual, having met in person only once, we made the best of our shared interests, and she always left me smiling. So kind, so smart, so sassy and sarcastic...just a lovely, magnetic lady with a wonderful passion for things in life that brought her joy. Wilma will be greatly missed by many.


Julie F posted on 5/11/22

I met Wilma through WCC Facebook page. Although I never met her in person Wilma had a great sense of humor and a very nice person to chat with . She was always supportive. Wilma will be missed. May Wilma be forever remembered.


Sandy Goga posted on 5/11/22

Wilma, you will be missed. You were an angel on earth. You may have had a snarky sense of humor, but you had a heart of gold. You put your heart into your beliefs and into your friendships. I know you are in Heaven already working on a cause close to your heart. Our loss is Heaven's gain!


Shirley Yount posted on 5/11/22

Wilma and I were Facebook friends. Though we never met in person, we bonded over WCC dogs and books. When I was diagnosed with cancer and facing surgery, she messaged me with some wonderful advice. She had been in a similar place and made me feel less scared about what was about to happen. I looked forward to her book recommendations and always smiled at her many coffee memes. I will miss her words of wisdom!


Heidi Brown posted on 5/11/22

There are people you meet and it feels like you have known them forever. While I never met Wilma in person she was one of those people. As others have said Wilma was the wise, wonderful old friend that was a comforter, supporter, humorist, coffee loving, Yellowstone watching friend. You are missed by all that knew you and all of ours lives are better for the pieces you gave us and the Wilma fabric which ties us together. God bless until we meet again! ❤️


Margaret Moran posted on 5/11/22

Wilma was the friend I never knew I needed until she came into my life. She was an understanding shoulder to cry on but was willing to give you a kick in the butt when she knew you needed it. She got me through one of the worst times in my life and never asked for anything in return. I will miss her every day but have such gratitude for her love and support. RIP my dear friend. Gone much too soon.


Toni Statile posted on 5/11/22

I met Wilma in a Facebook group that trains service dogs for our veterans, over the next 10 years we met many times with our mutual group and also got together for lunch whenever she was in town. I admired her for so many things, her honesty, intelligence, her friendship, she made everyone feel special and I knew the minute I met her she was something really special. I hope she knows how much I loved her.


Gayle MacDonald posted on 5/11/22

There are so many of us in deep mourning for the loss of a good friend with a mischievous but kind sense of humor who always had a kind, wise word for everyone. I so admired her deep convictions, her high principles, her value for her fellow humans. She was deeply committed to healing those around her in so many ways in a thousand times a thousand ways. Her snarky sense of humor could lighten the mood in a difficult situation. Her appreciation of a great cup of coffee was legendary as was her savoring of a well made G & T. She listened with tolerance, counseled with great wisdom and didn't put up with any nonsense. I will miss her to the end of my days. As I write this I am tearing up again. I am so heartbroken to not be able to be there to pay the respect she so richly deserves. I will look for you my dear, dear friend at the bridge. Love, Gayle


Lily W posted on 5/10/22

Wilma and I became friends over service dogs in training puppies and her generosity shined through as we supported several causes including providing holiday gifts and cheer for military families for the past five years. I still cannot believe she is gone as we were looking forward to our next visit. She was one to live her life to make a difference between the dashes..from the day she was born to the day she passed away. I know you would tell me to stop crying..but I'm sad you won't be here for wontons. We love and miss you, Wilma!


Lisa (Angel) Berg posted on 5/10/22

WIlma had a very gentle soul that always made me feel completely loved and accepted no matter our differences. We chatted about anything and everything and I always felt supported and heard. I will miss her sweet nature, her 'groaners' and I can no longer see any reference to coffee without thinking of Wilma. I miss you, dear soul mate.


Terri C. posted on 5/10/22

I don’t know where to start…… yes I do……coffee and WCC……I “met” Wilma on Facebook, and when I found out that she lived a few miles away, we made a date to meet….over coffee…..and that was that. When the pandemic hit, and we were in lockdown, I would drive over to her condo….I brought my lawn chair, and coffee for both of us, and we would sit outside properly distanced and chat. As so many have already said, she was so caring, always concerned about the other person, all the while dealing with her own serious health issues. So many times our conversations reached “enthusiastic” levels (I was agitated) but Wilma, being the wise, level headed woman that she was, always brought things back to center. We had a coffee date this week…… I will miss her so very much.


Phyllis Bagdonas posted on 5/10/22

Wilma was a humble woman in the sense about her accomplishments and wasn't a bragger. She shared her experience of nursing working in poison centers, nursing and during the AIDS epidemic, providing her expertise and her loving and caring heart to those affected. A woman with special gifts and obviously the gift of sharing her knowledge and caring for humanity. Wilma also had a great sense of humour and loved her coffee! Wilma will be truly missed. May she rest in eternal peace.


Julie Hansen posted on 5/10/22

To sum up Wilma's life with her death and her birth leaves out a whole lot of wonderful in the middle. Though I only knew her the last 10 years of her life, I witnessed an infectious laugh, a beautiful smile, an uncanny ability to make everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. Wilma was a force to be reckoned with. I can only imagine how much she shook up the world in her heyday. If she saw a cause to further, she did it. If she saw an injustice to stand up to, she was first in line. A bigger heart I will never know and a friendship I will never be able to replace. Wilma Pomerantz will not be forgotten.


Robin posted on 5/10/22

Wilma was that women who always knew. She knew when you were sad and would crack a snarky joke, if you were on the edge, she would offer to give you a little push to get you going. I could talk to her about anything at anytime. She has left such a void in my life and a hole in my heart


Karen Ball posted on 5/10/22

She had friends far and wide and I'm thankful to have been one of them. She was always so fun to be around at WCC events. She always tried to help where she could. Wilma will be missed by many.

Malisia, I am heartbroken to hear of Chris's passing. You may not remember me, but I used to work at the lab in Redlands. You and Chris would always bring me brownies and spend a little time talking about your plans for the house. I am still in amazement at how Chris would tell me jokes and encourage me to finish college while he was going through so much. I wish I was able to tell him that I did finish, and became an Oncology RN. I know we have not spoken in years, but I think about you guys often and wanted to let you know what an impact you had on my life. May Chris Rest In Peace and you be surrounded by love.

Rest in peace my friend, I have many great memories of our fishing and hunting adventures. The way you cared for your parents all those years after retiring from FORD MOTOR COMPANY and the way you took care of the older people in your neighborhood proved to me you were a changed man. You loved your daughters greatly throughout all the trials you endured as you worried about what would happen to them when you were gone. You were gifted athletically as evidenced in your running ability and the way you could catch a football. BUT in all the years I coached and watched football you were the only one who punted the ball BACKWARDS! Love ya and will miss our phone conversations and the way you could make me laugh.

To her family: About 4 or 5 years ago, as a Geriatric Care Manager I was asked by a friend to assist your mother when she was at The Laurels in rehab to help her get back home. i felt, with support services, she would be okay, but the facility seemed to think she needed to go to Independent Living. Well, that was absolutely not on her agenda!! We were able to get her home with assistance from Council on Aging, visits from caseworker, Marina, Meals on Wheels and some nutrition supplies. Kindred Home Care was there for physical therapy, assist with her walking skills and were willing at my request to increase the aide time for personal care so she didn't have to shower alone. They continued therapy for an extend period of time. I made several more visits.... I so enjoyed her spunk and laughter.. she was home and happy... and my job was done. My condolences to all of you. Lisa. K.

Great Uncle Plato was a gentle soft spoken man who deeply loved and cared for his entire family. He has called my Dad everyday for a very long time to check on him and make sure he was ok. Dad looked forward to that call each day. He will miss that call and conversation from his Uncle that he loved so dearly. Ask Dad (Don Young) or Aunt Ethel about the story of Plato coming to know Jesus as his personal Savior so many years ago. It will touch your heart for sure. We loved Plato dearly and Aunt Ethel we are here for you as you embark on your life without this sweet husband of yours. We love you all!

The legacy of a quiet man.... Uncle Plato thought carefully before he spoke or acted and as a small child I thought that was just his "nature". My understanding of this remarkable man was limited. As an adult I realize how much this Godly man taught me in his quiet moments. He listened twice as much as he spoke...he never criticized or judged and thought carefully before he said anything at all. I never witnessed anger ..only patience and kindness in this gentle wonderful man that I was blessed to know and love.Thank you uncle Ping Pong for showing me how to be Christlike. Love Linda Lou

Cheryl, I was so sorry to hear of Owen's passing. It has been 38 years since I worked across the hall from you at Bruce Drysdale School. My husband, Jon, and I remember being in a Hallmark card shop at the mall in Asheville. Across the aisles, we could hear laughter. There you were! You and Owen had come in, not to purchase cards, but to read the cards and get a few laughs. Blessings from Neenah, Wisconsin.


Christopher Wilson posted on 4/25/22

I didn't connect with many math teachers while in school, but this guy right here was the first teacher to show/teach me that math was a cool subject. The other two teachers are Mrs. Norman and Mrs. Betsy Copolillo. He was my 8th grade algebra teacher, and in all honesty it was the first time I actually passed a math class with an "A". After that connection, I was forever appreciative of the man, the myth, the legend that is Mr. Brendell. After moving back home to take a AP spot at my Alma Mater, I gave Mr. Brendell a phone call. I wanted to thank him for everything he did for me as a kid who struggled in math, but also helping me navigate those awkward pre-teen years at Hendersonville Junior High. We talked and laughed for about an hour on the phone on that day...........I am so fortunate to have had the chance to say thanks. Anyone who was raised in Hendersonville during the 1980s and 1990s had some pretty amazing teachers. I didn't realize how lucky we all were until joining the ranks myself. The reason I am in year 21 now is because of all the great educators I had in my life. We love you and will miss your dearly Mr. Brendell. ❤❤

Mr. B was one of my absolute favorite teachers. Also one of my favorite people.

Cheryl and Stephanie, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for God's peace and comfort for you.

"Mr. B." as we lovingly called him was such a joy. Always a smile and answers for my grandsons about the Bible when we were walking at the mall. He loved music, and I loved being able to play the piano at the church for him, with a song he requested. Heaven continues to get sweeter; and we shall miss his laughter and kind voice. Blessings to you Mr. "B"! You are well and home, and we will see you again!!

Sad to say I just discovered this fact. Mr. & Mrs. Freitas welcomed me and were wonderful to me. Mr. Freitas' knowledge, energy and zeal were evident in everything he did. Sunday meals with his family were always interesting and fun. It will always bring a smile to me when I think of him, his wife, Anne and the children who most likely grew up to be phenomenal individuals.

I worked with Ed when he volunteered for many years at the ABCCM Medical Ministry in Asheville, NC. The ministry cares for poor, uninsured patients of Buncombe County, N.C. In addition to seeing patients, Ed bought batteries for home blood sugar meters to be distributed to patients. He also provided hard candy for patients to carry who might experience low blood sugar symptoms. Ed will be missed.

Kenneth was always one I looked up to. He was one of my hero’s, and one of the best friends I ever had or will ever have. I was blessed to work with him throughout much of my life. He was one of the toughest and hardest working men I have ever known, and a master of automotive collision repair. I learned many, many things from Kenneth. Not just about repairing vehicles, but about hard work and how to be a true friend to someone. He taught me so much about so many things. Bass fishing was a passion we both shared, and Kenneth was one of the very best. On many occasions over the years, when I found myself on the lake struggling to find and catch fish, Kenneth could tell me over the phone where they were and what to throw. I would be catching fish within just a few minutes after talking to him. He was a very gifted man. There is no doubt that Kenneth was one of the greatest bass fishermen ever. If he had wanted it, he could have easily been a professional bass fishermen. On the worst of days, being around Kenneth for just a few minutes made everything better. When I didn’t feel like laughing or even being in a good mood, Kenneth always changed that. The best part was, he didn’t even have to try. There was just a something about Kenneth that had a huge impact on me. He was absolutely hilarious! He had a natural sense of humor unlike anyone I have ever known. Just walking in the room with him put a smile on my face. He could make me laugh without even trying. Kenneth was a dear friend to me. I love you Ken. I sure will miss you. You will never be forgotten. Your friend, Patrick Case

Oh Ron and Beth. I was just heartbroken to hear about Judi. She was a large part of our life in Algiers Point. I remember putting signs up in AP when she turned 50! We spent time together down in the basement of city hall researching our home's history. Live in a Landmark tours. Oh and our group Mardi Gras family reunion shirts. Just the best. It seems like a lifetime ago. Good memories though. Terrific memories that will always bring a smile to my face when reflecting back on them. Sending our love.

Betty, I am so sorry I can’t attend Ed’s memorial service this Saturday because of prior commitments. Ed was a wonderful man, a man from the first time you met him you knew that he was kind and thoughtful. Some one you wanted to know to know better because of his life time experience. I was my honor to know Ed when he enrolled in the Master Pomologist Course to learn more about the science of tree fruit production. He was one of the “regular crew” who volunteered at the Apple Variety Block consistently ever Tuesday for over twenty years. Working in the Block: planting new varieties, training, pruning, harvesting fruit and evaluating post-harvest fruit quality. Through his work and others, local growers through the NC Cooperative Extension Center helped educate local growers about how apple and peach varieties preform in our region of WNC. Because of his dedication, he was honored by the NC Cooperative Extension Service as Volunteer of the Year! Late in his life, because of medical issues we saw Ed less and less at the Block. Even if he couldn’t join us, he would tell Betty “It’s Tuesday morning, I must get ready to go to the Block”! Yes, Ed is miss by all who knew him. But, I know we will meet again, when we pick up our pruners and continue working together again. Ed, RIP Your friend, Marvin

What a great man! I will never forget my time and wonderful talks with Tommy at the campground. One time I had run out of fishing hooks and Tommy searched until he found some and I believe he gave me the last little bit of fishing tackle he had. That's just the kind of man he was. Our family will miss seeing you at the campground and and our prayers are with you all.

Charles and Ann Wheeler posted on 3/22/22

Charles and I have spent many hours over the years, rocking in those chairs in the campground office, sharing life stories with Tommy. He and Charles were especially fond of their “Ford truck” ventures, their jaunts to the hardware…just men being men. Our last visit during Covid will play forever in our minds. Just four friends laughing over the aches and pains and robotic body parts that elderly life has given us. Tommy’s positive upbeat attitude will always be a reminder for us to live life to its fullest. Praying for comfort and strength for all who love him.



Michael & Dawn Lovelace posted on 3/22/22

Henry was a brilliant man full of knowledge and wisdom who added significantly to our brotherhood. He will be missed and I regret not hearing of his passing as to share his impact with his family. He was special and active and had a rare intellect.

My mother-in-law, Stella Mace, always treated me as one of her own. She loved and helped me in every way she could. I worshipped with her at Jones Gap Church and, more recently at her home. Just a few days ago, I was reciting “The Lords Prayer” with her, and, on her own, she picked right up with “The Twenty-third Psalm”. Her favorite hymn was still “Amazing Grace”, and she still loved for us to sing it with her. Then, after singing “I’ll Fly Away”, she said to me “and we’ll fly away together”. And, in a way, we did, because we were together when she went to be with Jesus, and some glad morning “we’ll all fly away” to “that home beyond the shining shores” to be with her again in Glory. She also loved the hymn “All Is Well With My Soul” and I’m sure “all is well with her soul”. With All My Love, Wayne He

We just learned of Mark‘s passing. We knew him through his window cleaning business. We will remember him for being such a kind man with a good heart and a smile always on his face. Heartfelt sympathies to his family and loved ones. He will be greatly missed!


Liz Snively posted on 3/8/22

I spoke with Mark last fall when he called me to say he would have to reschedule my window cleaning because he was having to cut back. I missed seeing his obituary and had no idea that he had died until I tried to reach him today. He was a wonderful man and we had great conversations whenever he came to work at my house. He loved my dog and would always play with her. My deepest condolences to all.

I didn't know Henry well. I met him at a couple of neighborhood parties. And after Doris passed, I would talk to him on some of his hikes up and down our neighborhood hill. Henry could talk about anything. He listened well, and divulged his thoughts, too. He was always so inviting, for me to visit and to just talk. I'm sad now that I didn't talk to him more. He had a wealth of experience from life, and empathetic, and caring. I am sorry his passing. He was a good man.

I was in the college seminary with my good friend, Hank (I and many others called him "Hank" rather than Henry) from 1960-1963 and hooked up with him a few times since then, mostly at seminary reunions, but also one occasion when he came to my home town of Indianapolis to visit me. The last reunion four years ago was a 3 day blast and Hank and my wife and I took a couple trips around St. Louis, including Lemay, where he was mayor at one time. Very enjoyable time with him. My sincere condolences to his family. I know he loved you and Doris very much. May he rest in peace.

Henry was a dear life long friend. He married me and my husband in 1972 and surprised me at our 40th anniversary to renew our vowels. It was at this time I met Doris. They seemed perfect for each other. Even though I didn’t see him often he was very special to me and I will miss him terribly. RIP dear friend.

Dearest King Family~ We were saddened to hear of Sis. Betty's passing. She was such a sweet friend. We enjoyed visiting the King home when Brother Boyd became home bound. We enjoyed listening to her beautiful style of playing the piano, as we lifted our hearts together in song. My girls, at a young age learned what a blessing it can be on both ends of gatherings like this. The King's were blessed, we were blessed and the Lord was praised by all! We also loved running into Sis. Betty in town at some of our favorite restaurants. We always left feeling such joy to have caught up once again. Letters of appreciation were exchanged as well. She will be missed greatly. Our sincere condolences to Leonard, Faith, Joy, Matthew, and Darlene as well, Betty's daughter-in-law of many years. We love you ALL, and pray that the LORD's comfort be with you and His Grace within you.

Not sure what to say exactly being it's my son and his son my grandson that has passed this is utterly heartbreaking very shocking and very sudden especially one that is taken as such a young age never got a chance to really see the world but you know as a parent it's hard to watch your child have to deal with something such as his tragedy wishing a lot of times you could take that pain or take that place and let him enjoy life and his family and take away the heartache but it doesn't work that way no one really knows the pain unless they've been through it so it's it's really easy for people to say everything's going to be okay but that would be a lie it'll get a little less hard but this kind of lost and being it's one of your own especially your children is going to be hard to overcome you can do what he wants or what you think he would want and coming from both parents y'all know what he wants so his memory will live on not only in your mind but in your heart along with things that you may do in his honor the memories will never fade your heart will never start aching the tears will never stop flowing not to mention you'll always have questions of why why you why did this have to happen why did you do this however you'll never know that answer so all we can do is just put it in the back of her mind but even though you and Candice only got a few months with Braxton just remember fact is he will forever live in your hearts he will never be forgotten he is up there somewhere with all of her passed on loved ones which welcomed him with open arms and helped him get adjusted you know Alan your Grandma Mary she probably first thing she did was had a big bowl of potatoes with butter waiting on him as soon as he arrived but son I love you and I'm here for you whenever you need me I know right now it's a hard time for you and Candice but if y'all ever need you or her need a shoulder to cry on or even a punching bag if you want to get some of your anger out I'm here for that that's what parents do but I just want you to know I love you and I'm really sorry that this happened this is really truly a tragedy you and Candice and PeeWee will be in my thoughts and my prayers but for you Braxton we never met but we will soon until then fly high my little one we will all be together one day soon love always your mother and grandmother Rachel lyda

You are in our hearts now and forever. So many wonderful memories with Virginia, Wayne, and the kids. Remember our 'camping' trip (that popup camper) with the kids? And Larry put a 'for sale' sign on the camper as soon we got back. The many cookouts on the patio with our families - cooking delicious foods and enjoying each other's company. And neighbors helping neighbors - anytime there was a project, i.e., pouring a driveway, cleaning up the trees after Hurricane Fran, making home repairs, etc., we all jumped right in -- the Wyatts, the Ollis', Betsy, Wilmer, Bobby, the kids - and made it fun. The big pool parties at the Ollis' was always an fun event. We miss those days and happy memories. Love to the Wyatt family, Wayne, Virginia, Kim, & Rick.

Today we said our final goodbyes to a good man. I am so thankful that God moved the Carters to Hendersonville in the 80”s. Had it not been for that move, I would have never met my lifetime best friend and her family, who I consider mine. Life has brought its ups and downs, but Joel was always the rock holding everyone together. He was like a second father to me, always trying to teach us kids something about life and how to live it well. From girls scouts to starting my own family, Joel was always there, cheering me on in life. He left a legacy of love and service we can all learn from for years to come. We can all be assured he is resting in the arms of his savior, where he always wanted to be. It’s not good-bye, but see you soon.

Christopher Wilkins embodied all that is right with this world and the worse of this world. He took his talents and utilized them to become a master in his chosen career: Chis took his love and created a wonderful family with his wife of 17 years; and then tragically the worse happened when he was struck by a terrible illness, Chris chose to battle it seeking the long life he deserved. While I did not know him, I knew his family and the stock that created this wonderful person, his talents, and his love. I feel I missed knowing a great brave person and share the sorrow of his family. May we take time to breath and celebrate the life of this child of God.

I knew Harley from the H'ville Country Club. We would always have a great conversation together, about cars, horses, Keeneland KY., maybe some of his old cases or sometimes about nothing. Visited him at his warehouse a few times, I always left with a good inspiration from him. I will miss him.

Christopher was my dear friend in high school, he was kind, clever, and genius. I had not spoken with him directly in decades but I always carried him in my heart. He was easy to love and I am completely saddened for his family and close friends. It is better that the world should have such a light, it gives me hope in humanity.

Oh how I remember the Carter family growing up a couple blocks away and Joel. Indeed, him, Rick F and Chuck G took me out as a 9th grader while they were in 12th grade. I'm so happy his life was full and love and family. I'm praying for all, especially Denise and George, whom I know better than the rest of the siblings. I now reside in the Thumb recalling the summers in Caseville!

My Husband and I first got to know Toni through our Pet Grooming Business. We groomed several of her family pets and found her lovely to work with. Then we learned she also drove for Meals on Wheels and delivered meals to my Grandmother who lived with us. She was so kind and loving to my Grandma, a real angel here on earth! Toni was one of our favorite people--She will be missed!

I have only the fondest memories of growing up just blocks away from my cousins' home and the hours spent hanging out there. When I view those memories, what comes up front and center, is Joel's mischievous smile and goofing around. I remember him as funny, teasing and always kind. Moving away, losing touch and not knowing Joel as the wonderful man he came to be is my loss. Condolences and prayers for peace to all the family.

Dr. Parker was one of the very best professors I ever had. I still frequently think of things he said and quote his lapidary sayings to others. I was a student of his at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary in the mid-eighties. He was personally very kind and encouraging to me. I wanted to take him out for lunch and pick his brain about the possibility of pursuing Ph.D. studies. He allowed my five-year-old daughter pick the restaurant. (It was McDonald's, of course!) He paid for the meal, and gave me good counsel.

Bill gave me support 22 years ago when my mother Pass a way


Dr. R. Barry Levis posted on 2/10/22

I served on the Commission on Ministry when Bill was bishop. During that time, I came “out of the closet” and had very messy divorce. Once the bishop caught wind of it, he called me in to see him. I assumed excommunication was the mildest I could expect. Instead he gave me a big hug and said how often he had heard similar stores of married men coming out as gay. Several years later, after Bill’s retirement, my partner (now husband) John and I became part of an AIDS ministry for the diocese of Central Florida. Each summer we helped sponsor a retreat at Kanuga for those dealing the HIV. At one retreat Bill came to carry out a blessing for those suffering from HIV and those involved in ministries such as ours. When he came to John and me at the altar rail, instead of blessing our ministry, he blessed our union as a couple. I still get teared up thinking about it. He was a kind and gentle man. He will be deeply missed.

I remember borrowing a dress from her for my senior prom. She was only 3 yrs. older than me. Both she and my mother loved hummingbirds. The birds would show up at Emmaleen's first and she would call Mother and tell her to put the feeder out. I don't think they ever missed each other's birthday. Her girls were her pride and joy. I know you will miss her.

Carol helped me with submissions to the Wolf Tales. I tried a new column about things to do and she always found pictures to add and other research information that made the articles much better. She always thanked me and was gracious all the time.

Jeff & Carol, I just got to know your mom and dad over the years of working with Jeff @ Ken Wilson Ford. Both parents always were so kind to me and complimentary. I feel like I got to know Mr. Pruitt even more through Facebook as the twins would always post things of family events. I couldn’t help but love him seeing how happy he made these kids and his whole family.He loved all of you so much. I’m so sorry for all the heart breaks losing such a great man. I pray you will have strength to get through the next several weeks with his passing.

My Uncle Jerry, my Godfather, my neighbor. Our family lived on the same block. My Uncle Jerry, Aunt Mary, cousins Diane, Richard, Gale and Ronnie. I often think about the family gatherings and My Uncle Jerry at the bbq. I remember the beautiful orchids that he grew in his green house that he built, after all, he was a contractor! I remember My Uncle Jerry behind the bar at our wedding holding up my train that I had dragged behind the bar to pose for a picture. I remember My Uncle Jerry coming to the department store where I worked on Christmas Eve telling my boss the family was waiting on me for dinner. I remember My Uncle Jerry, and cousins, helping us move to our new house and giving Bill and I a picnic table for our patio. My husband, Bill, would have a lot of stories to tell on the many trips that he made to the groves with my dad and My Uncle Jerry; many he can't tell! Don't forget the warehouse in Medley and Major, the German Shepherd, My Uncle Jerry loved. I remember our families traveling together to NY every summer. My Uncle Jerry would be ready and packed with 4 kids way ahead of us. Now you know the rest of the story. To My Uncle Jerry: Light the way for us. I love you, your niece, Lorraine

Our hearts go out to all of Kevin's family. It is still difficult for us to believe Kevin is actually gone. We dispatched him for most of his trucking career. We still find ourselves expecting his daily calls. This is a heartbreaker for us...he was like family. The only thing that makes it bearable is that he is with his beloved dog Bobby.

I first met Larry and Alma at Girl Scout camp in SC. Her niece worked for GS. Alma was teaching a beading class. We became fast friends. That was probably 25 years ago. Through the years, she taught both beading and basket classes for me at Greenville Health System's Recreation Committee. Several of us would have dinner at a fine restaurant before class. (Wendy's) I loved the stories she and Larry shared about the classes they took and the places they went. I especially love the story about her Ingles jewelry collection I have the recipe she sent me for kraut and my Christmas earrings she sent me. I will miss you dear friend.

Our Aunt Saundra was very special to all of the Rydin family. She was a wonderful wife to our Uncle Ted and we shared so many fun holidays and birthdays together. I especially remember all the trips to Flat Rock with my mom in her later years and with my daughter Meghan where we visited the Carl Sandburg home where Saundra used to be a docent. We were so glad when she reconnected with her high school friend Jim after my Uncle Ted passed and that they had several years together. She was a beautiful lady inside and out and she is missed by all of us.

Saundra will forever be in our hearts. Such an uplifting spirit. She was always smiling and laughing and never complained about anything. We were a lunch bunch. Saundra wanted to name our group so we became the “Sassy Sisters”. So much fun and laughter. I will cherish the time we spent together and I am proud to have had the opportunity to call her my friend. ❤️

I've known Heather for a while. She was one of our parents at Hendersonville School for Little Folks and Hannah was in the nursery and then at Nessa's Younguns Natural Play Center 2.. Heather always had a smile on her face, and it was a beautiful smile. She was quiet, she never raised her voice or got upset. I always marvelled at how calm she was. I also admired her love for her children and husband. I always looked forward to seeing her-her smile and kind words always lifted me up and brightened my mood. She was a wonderful parent and an awewome fashionplate. She was a beautiful soul. I will miss her but she is free.....praise the Lord, she is free! May the Lord God wrap His arms of comfort around her family and shower them with His peace.

Robert walked into The Medical Loan Closet several years ago, and never turned away. He gave so much in so many ways. He taught me so much about many things. I so loved to talk to him and enjoy that great personality, and laughs. I was truly blessed to know him



Kim Boyd-Thompson posted on 1/18/22

Heather was always a joy to see at any place I might see her. She had a soft, sweet voice, a beautiful smile, and a laugh that made me laugh with her. I only saw her every 6 months for many years until my grandson joined Zander's jiu-jitsu class and then I saw her every Wed when I could go watch the boys. Heather never had an unkind word to say to me about anyone or anything. If the world were full of people like her, what a wonderful place it would be. I know heaven is much brighter and I look forward to seeing her beautiful face and hearing her laugh. I'm so sorry for your loss of such a precious person. I'm praying for each of you.


Rayelle Gilliam posted on 1/18/22

I met Heather when her sweet daughter joined my classroom at preschool. Hannah was definitely a mamas girl and their bond was incredible. Every morning we would giggle at little Hannah while she waited on Heather to help her wash hands and do the little things of their routine. She knew that Hannah loved baby dolls just as much as she did when she was younger so to help her with the transition, she’d give her a little babydoll and hug her goodbye ♥️ Heather was always checking in and making sure we had everything we needed and showing us her appreciation. She was always so easy to talk to and we’d start our days off with a smile. Heather’s last message to me was “thank you so much for everything you do to take care of my baby. I’m dying to hold her” The love that Heather had for her family and for others will forever remain. She was an amazing woman and even better mom. She is so missed but we are so thankful for the short time the Nessa’s family got to know her. ♥️

Mr. Seiler was a patient at the office I worked at in Hendersonville. He was always one of my Favorites.

Please know how sorry I am for your loss. Prayers be with the family and loved ones at this time.

Heather came into my life when I didn't know I needed someone like her. She changed my life for the better. Her smile, her laugh, her spunk & her fire was unmatchable. We talked all day at work & into the night about everything. I enjoyed our talks. I will miss her stories about her family, her smile & her friendship. She was truly one in a million. I'm so honored that God put her in my life. You will be missed sweetheart. I love you. To her family & friends, may you find comfort in the memories you have close in your heart.

There are tons of memories I could share about my best friend Heather (Deb). One in particular, I was 18 years and about to give birth to my daughter. Me being a young girl, afraid to be a mother, Heather drove 2 1/2 hours home from college to make sure she was by my side. Heather is the type of person who is always supporting and protecting her family and friends. I can't put into words how much I am going to miss her. But I am thankful I have someone so special watching me from above.


Janet Stepp posted on 1/15/22

Growing up I taught Heather in Sunday School and she had a very quiet disposition and was always got along well with other children. She had this wonderful smile on her fact and I remember how she always knew all the Bible Stories that we would talk about in Sunday School. She was eager to do a good job in class and I was fortunate to have been a part of her learning about Jesus. She will be missed very much but I know she is in Heaven along with other family members that have gone on before.

My God bless my good friend Roger Adkins Time goes by way too quickly. You’re never really gone as long as the people you knew still remember you. Roger, you are alive in my memories. The many memories that I have of my good friend Roger, over the 55 years that we were close friends, are all full of laughter, fun and wonderful memories. Roger could always find humor in everything and never failed to make me laugh. He had strong views and he would express them to his friends whenever he felt that it was necessary. I can remember many debates that I had with him. He never once changed my mind and I could never change his, but the debates were packed with laughter. We spent time together in Charlotte, at the beach, in the mountains, at concerts, and local bars over many years. He dragged the 5 foot shark that I caught at Kuri Beach to the shore while many observers watched and recorded. Roger never backed down from a fight and never started one. His life was full of love, laughter and “one of a kind” events that he often created. They say that the “charm” in a person is the “child” in a person. Roger never got old. I told him once that in his old age, he was losing his testosterone and would not notice cute girls. He laughed and said, “That will save me a lot of money and heartaches and that’s a good thing.” I will never forget the way Roger laughed. His laugh would make you laugh. I will never forget the many hours we spent together over many years and will cherish them all. Rest in peace my good friend and thank you for all the wonderful memories. I will miss you. With Love, Bill Briggs

She always came by to visit Mrs. Long and they would chat and have fun together. They would often attend activities, and have meals together. I first learned of chocolate-covered pecans from Frances and I haven't stopped making them since. She was indeed a sweet soul. God's speed Frances. I'll always remember you. ❤

Jermaine became a part of mine and my kids family when he started dating and eventually married my best friend. He made us laugh. Always put up with my crazy shenanigans and me coming over and eating whatever I felt like at their house just because I was so used to doing that for 27 years. He even had a joke about the "cherries in the fridge." Lol. Gave good advice and listened to me vent when I'd vent to my best friend. Was there for my kids and me. Was so good to my best friend and their girls. My heart is broken for Kimberly, Gracie, & Izzy. Rest easy Jermaine. Your work here on earth is done and we will see you again one day my friend.

I will truly miss and remember my father in law for the rest of my life. Although the time we had together was short and sweet, it will last a lifetime. I will honor him the best I can. He was one of the most kind hearted men I had ever had the joy of meeting and I’m so glad that myself and his son had that chance. Although we didn’t get to visit a lot, I enjoyed the long talks and the uncountable laughs, smiles and joy. I loved and adored his “don’t mess with me or my loved ones” attitude and his kind, caring, loving, and giving heart. He will truly be missed. His grand babies wanted to say they love and they miss him too - Mikaya, Isabella, Kiara, Ameyah, & Anthony (his grandchildren).

‘Grandmother Wilson’ was an adopted grandmother to me but she was even more than that. She was a friend, an encourager, and a constant believer in anything I pursued in life. She and ‘Big Papa’ (Mr. Wilson, as my brother and I called him) loved to take us to J&S Cafeteria. We would go to the mall together to walk and were amazed that they always saw someone they knew there. We loved playing Skip-Bo together and watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune in the evening. You will always be missed grandmother Wilson. You were a treasure that can never be replaced.

I was the Pastor for Ruby and Kep for 7 years in Hendersonville and have been a close friend for the past 3 decades. In every way they exhibited loving support for my ministry, my wife, and my children, whom they took under their wings as "grandchildren." Ruby always carried a bright smile and a warm heart. The zucchini pies she made for me were second to none! If all people were like the Wilsons, being a Pastor would be the easiest job in the world! She will be greatly missed, but not gone in our hearts. See you in heaven, Ruby!

My wife Elizabeth and I were Tom's neighbor from 2016-2017. I spent a lot of time at Tom's apartment watching football and talking politics with him. He was such a genuinely good guy and a friend.

I always loved and had great respect for Mrs. Konsler. She was a huge help to me when I was trying to decide, in my 30’s, whether or not to get my PhD. She and Dr. Konsler had done it successfully, so she understood. She did not tell me if she thought I should go or not. She did share with me the advice her father had given to them when they started that journey. She said that if I were going to do it…do it…full time … all the way through… In the end, I decided I could not make that fulltime commitment, and so I decided not to do it. Oh, did I make the right decision! How lucky I was to know and listen to Mrs. Konsler!

Sunny befriended my mother Helen when she and Rap lived at Brookdale in Hendersonville. There couldn't have been a kinder, more supportive person to help my mother adjust to her new home. Later, when I frequently travelled to Hendersonville to be with my mother more often, Sunny also became a friend and support to me. My mother could not remember many of her old friends during the last weeks of her life, but she would smile when she saw Sunny's picture. I hope they are together again. I miss them both.

He was very soft spoken and always willing to lend a helping hand in a kind and gentle way. As a result, he built many long-lasting friendships at work. I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the entire family for this loss. Isaak will always be in our hearts.

Isaak was a good man and a great colleague. He was always there to listen to my problems and offer sound advice with a touch of humor. Isaak often brought a counter point or insightful angle that I had not seen; I will miss him daily. I will keep him alive in my memory and shared recipes. Rest in Power my friend.

Isaak was a good friend and close colleague for many years. I worked with him for many years and enjoyed his sense of humor and honesty. His passion not only for work but for life was contagious. I am truly saddened to hear of his passing, he was taken from us too soon. My sincere condolences to his loving family. May God comfort and bless this family during this difficult time.

Isaak Dedrick was my colleague at work. He is known for his compassion and understanding. Isaak is already missed, and will be remembered for his authority and knowledge. This world is emptier without Isaak near each or us.

He was the best Principal any student could ask for - always fair, full of good advice and had the best demeanor. The day 8 of us girls skipped school from EHHS to go on a picnic at DuPont Lake in 1978 was a memory that will never be forgotten. We all had to report to his office the next morning not leaving an inch between us. After negotiating and pleading with him for an hour not to suspend us for 3 days he sent us back to class and told us we’d better not do it again. All the laughs and good times will never be forgotten by this great man. Sending my condolences to his family during their loss. Rest In Peace Doc Ledbetter everyone ❤️ loved you!


Rick Redmond, East High Class of 1985. posted on 12/19/21

He was my Principal at East Henderson, a place where I grew significantly both academically and personally; in character development as much as educational. That happened under his watch and to him and for that, I am most grateful. He made a lasting impact on students that will ripple throughout eternity and for that, we are all grateful. Rest in peace, Doc. You will be sorely missed by many.


Karen Anders posted on 12/19/21

Mr. Ledbetter was a wonderful, kind and funny soul! I will forever remember meeting him in the hallways at East Henderson High with a smile on his face and a Hello, how are you doing today?

When I think of Anita, I picture her with a big smile. She and I were good friends beginning at Dana School in second grade. Our friendship continued at Flat Rock Jr. High School and East Henderson High School. I knew her mom and dad well. They were good people. I was delighted when I got to teach her son, Brandon, in kindergarten. Anita and I lost touch, but I will always remember the good times we had together. I am saddened by her passing and extend my condolences to her family.

Please accept our condolences on the loss of your father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to many. John became our good friend after meeting him at a motorcycle gathering back in 2007. From that point on, we shared many motorcycling miles and the many meals that go along with that. It was a privilege having "Italian Dinner" at the Difiore home and he and Lorraine were gracious hosts. We shared his sadness when he lost Lorraine and now share your grief because he has been such a good friend to us. In recent years, he and Karen made us feel like family again as we enjoyed many fun times together. We will miss him and his great sense of humor. God bless.

I was very fortunate to have worked with Bill in the early '90's at Glidden HBB. I was young and inexperienced, and Bill was always so gracious with his time and wisdom. I consider him one of my mentors. Bill had a great sense of humor. I remember him threatening to break the brew strength of the coffee maker if anyone moved it away from the strongest! When he was transferred to Dallas, he gave me a great deal on the snowblower he had just bought. I still have it. One of the nicest, most intelligent individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. My sincere condolences to Cyd and family.

I was saddened to learn of Lucille's passing in September. I apologize for how late this note is. I worked with Lucille at Peoples Federal Savings and Loan in Mansfield, Ohio when she and Paul lived there. I have such fond and wonderful memories of her. Her testimony for the Lord Jesus was so powerful. What a gentle and kind women she was! She often talked about her 2 sons as well as her extended family. There were MANY days she longed for her "mountains" of N.C. and to return to her home in Hendersonville! Lucille and Paul would often stop by my bank office in Lexington, Ohio when they visited Mansfield. Lucille will forever remain in my heart, she was dearly loved in Ohio! May God continue to bring you joy and comfort as you await your reunion with her in Heaven. Marty Campbell Lexington, Ohio

There is no word for “goodbye” in Cherokee. Instead, we say “donadagohvi” which means, “'til we meet again.” The last thing Em gave me was a arrowhead. She knows I collect them and she wanted me to have it then. She cared so much about making memories and staying alive in hearts so strongly that she said just always remember me when you see it because she knew then she was slowly moving on. She never cried when she told me she knew, she just smiled and was brave till the end.

There are some people that you meet in your life that have an impact on you only because of who they are and nothing more. I called Don my BFG (Big Friendly Giant). I can honestly say I felt love for this man. He was the first person that reached out to Ken and I at Holly Cove. He knew that we were 'green' campers and didn't have any idea with what we were doing. He helped (he could reach the high spots without a ladder) and gave us many suggestions. He and Sally became our first friends at Holly Cove and both are part of my heart. Sally thanks for sharing Don and letting me love him like a dad.

I worked with many great people at Glidden, but Bill was truly one of the best. He was a humble man with incredible integrity and he always had the total respect of his coworkers. He was one of the very best.

Bill was an absolute sweetheart once you got to know him. The way that he cared about Mrs. Cyd was just the sweetest. I learned that if Bill didn't pick on you, he didn't like you. haha. We would always joke around and pick on eachother. He was such a light. He will surely be missed and i know he will be Cyds guardian angel. Until we meet again Bill. xoxo.

In the short time we knew him, such an indelible impact he and Jean have had on us. A kind, polite, sweet soul from the first time you met him, he made you better. We shared our Sunday Nights at Covenant, a treasure we will always hold close.

To the family of Ruth Garren and Paul McCrary and Mark Drake. So sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. She was such a likable person. She was my wife's best friend for over 30 years. They worked together at GE for 30 plus years. Their Birthdays were on the same day..After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have to hold onto are the happy memories we shared with Ruth. This is what keeps them alive in our hearts. At this difficult time in your life, we pray that God will grant you the serenity and peace that you need to get through this. May you find peace and comfort knowing that Ruth has found rest in the arms of the Lord. Stay strong and know that you are remembered in our thoughts and prayers.

My first meeting Bill was when he came to work for Glidden in Columbia, SC. It didn't take long for everyone to realize he was on his way up with Glidden. He was eager to learn everything he could about the paint business but more importantly he was a people person. Everyone loved him and he fit in with any crowd. I remember going to Nordson Airless School with Bill and we learned to repack and repair the pumps. He instantly caught onto how they worked and was very proficient in diagnosing problems. He had the ability to make things better when assigned a duty. Was proud of Bill as I watched him advance with Glidden. Will miss him and the moments we shared. RIP Bill

Don was a great man and will be dearly missed. I’ve known him since I was a little girl. He would hang out at I 26 small engine with my dad. I know they are together now rejoicing in a better place. We will miss him every Sunday at church.

One in a million of sweet loving men. Don always had a “tall hug” for every lady and a helping hand for all in our close community of Holly Cove campers. He will be missed but remembered for his love of Sally and his family of friends.

Emily was a precious person. She had a kind word for everyone. She always had a smile to share. We are forever grateful for our friendship. She will forever be missed by each of us. Love and prayers for Heath, Skye and James and her wonderful family.


Bill Davis posted on 12/2/21

I met Bill when we both worked at The Glidden Company. We became friends at work and over the years that friendship grew outside of work. Bill taught me so much about paint and computers. He was my go to person for any questions I had. He was one of the smartest people I have ever met. We had many good times at work and a lot of fun after hours.. Even though we lost touch with each other over the years I know I could call him and it would be like we talked every day. He was a dear friend and I will miss him!

Ron & I have many fond memories of Don. When we started coming to Holly Cove for the summers, he would stop by and was always wanted to know if he could help us in any way! He was always such a gentleman! Prayers for Sally and his family

We're so glad we got to meet Don on a couple of trips back to North Caroline. He was a terrific guy. We're very sorry for your loss.

Hey Jeff, really sorry about Rhonda. It really seems like it was a few years ago we were all in school together. Time flies for all of us. Always hang on to all the years gone by. Great memories that can’t be taken away. Ever! Love you brother.

Margaret Lee was one of my first best friends while growing up in Smithfield. We were Girl Scouts together and always in the same class. She was always so much fun to be around. We have so many memories of being together. I just want to brag a little. She was our class Valedictorian, Head Cheerleader and was voted Best All Around in our class of SHS'61> She was also an accomplished pianist. Along with all of her accomplishments, she remained kind and always had concern for others. I feel very blessed to have been her friend.

I am lucky to have many many great memories with Brian. My wife and I visited him in Florida quite a few times. We hung out at the Crooked Elbow, visited with Barbara, shopped at Ron Jons, saw sea turtles, went to the Cape, Disney and Epcot, and swam in John Pennecamp underwater national park Marathon Key. Brian was the kindest, most loving and gentle person I've ever known, I will miss him every day.
