  1. Dear Annie Mae, Glen and Janice families. Am so sorry for your loss and had hoped to be with you to express our condolences. Our daughter Linda offered to drive for us but decided it best we not try to make the trip. As you know Sonnie and I joined the Army Air Force together and were together for several months at Ellington Field and Keesler Field. We were then separated for combat training and both were in the 8th air force, flying out of England on B-24 Bombers over Europe, We were able to arrange things so we could arrive home together after receiving our discharges a few days apart. There is no place like home and God made it possible. I believe our names on the prayer list of some 25 or more service men in the area on the service men’s prayer list at the Bayshore Friends Church helped to make that day possible.

    Walter & Polly Lawrence
  2. To the Family:

    We are so sorry for your loss and wish that we could attend the service to express our condolences in person, but please know that we are keeping you all in our hearts, both in prayer and in thought.

    May God bless each of you, providing His comfort and care, and helping you to find peace.

    In Sympathy,
    Lee Anna Tolbirt and Randall & Delise Becker (son & daughter-in-law of Daniel Becker)

    Randall Becker
