I had the wonderful opportunity to work alongside Dave nearly every Friday at the N.C. Aquarium during his years of tremendous service and support. Even as a volunteer, Dave beat nearly all of us to work each Friday and provided great confidence that animal coverage was good for that day. My condolences to Dave's family and friends. You'll be missed buddy!

I recall when Coby first came on board with us in the 302nd Tactical Airlift Wing, 356th Tactical Airlift squadron, thinking "He's awfully young". But as time, flying hours, and missions, wore on it soon became apparent both his excellent skills as a pilot and also his ability to lead and make decisions. With heavy heart this news is received. Memories of serving with him will never be forgotten. May God bless and rest his soul.

 

Charles Mercer posted on 9/27/20

I remember when Coby came aboard with us in the 302nd Wing, 356 Tactical Airlift Squadron. Recall thinking at the time " He's awfully young. But as time, and flying hours wore on, I soon realized his potential both as an excellent pilot and leader.! An amazing man, great pilot, and dear friend. Such a sad blow to our hearts to see him called at so young an age. Fond memories of him will always be with us.. God bless and rest his soul.

To all the McLeod Family, Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wife and mom. For so many years of my young life she was so gracious to accept me in your home for lunches, over nights, playing James Taylor albums in the basement and fun on the balance beam! Clair and Philip and I were together in school all the way through high school. So many great memories. Your Mom always made me feel welcome and like a part of the family and she was a good friend to my mother as well. Now she and Laura can gab in heaven....they were so good at that here on earth!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Catherine Kilian Lopez

Meeting Frankie 3 things stood out and were very apparent , he loved Kristy more than anything, he was an amazing kind soul and he was an amazing father who loved his son more than anything. Watching their relationship grow from dating, married and then parents has been watching a story of true love and devotion. He will be forever missed.

I had the unique opportunity of knowing Paul Laird from both sides of the Cape Fear River. Paul sponsored me for the "Friends of Fort Fisher" Board of Directors. When I was Vice President of the Brunswick Civil War Round Table, across the river at Fort Caswell, Paul joined us as an Advisor. Paul’s background and knowledge of Civil War and Fort Fisher, made Paul a real asset to both organizations. Add his commitment and passion for American history, he covered both sides of the Cape Fear River in American history. I was proud to call Paul Laird an associate and a friend. His congenial personally and friendly smile will be missed by all who knew him.

Our memories of Coby go back close to 30 years. He was without a doubt one of the most gifted and talented people we've known. Everyone who knew Coby appreciated his funny side as well. And those who knew him well appreciated his culinary skills, too. We'll always remember Coby as a dear friend and neighbor. Coby, you will be missed by many. Our condolences to the entire Johnson family.

Many of us miss you dearly, Frankie.

Big love to Gene as he navigates this new “normal”. The entire Caperton Clan sends you our love and prayers!

Beth hired me as a childcare worker when I attended SEBTS, then nurtured & supported me when I served as Minister of Education & Children for nine years at her beloved church in Wake Forest. She helped shape my life and ministry and will always hold a special place in my heart. Our world is better, richer for having her here these 89+ years. My heart goes out to Gene and her daughters & families. Beth will be sorely missed...until we meet again. God’s peace be with each of you.

Though we’d lost touch over the years, I’ll never forget a summer he and his friends spent taking me under their wing. Frankie always...always made everyone feel accepted.

I remember Victor from Wallace-Rose Hill, class of 1964. Although he was quiet, he had an unassuming nature and was very sincere. I can still remember his cute laugh! I was glad to see and talk with him at our reunion. To Callie, Steven and Richard - I hope that time will heal your sadness and bring back the many happy times you shared with Victor over the years. May this true patriot of our wonderful country and God rest in his hands.

Mrs. Gladies, I'm sorry that I never had the opportunity to meet you. I have been friends with Sharon ever since she lived in Immokalee and we worked at the bank together. In viewing your memorial video, I can see where Sharon inherited her personality! Which is why I love her. I know you will be missed by your family and friends. But I know that Mr. Neville and others were there with open arms too meet you on the other side. May you rest in eternal peace. Sending my Love & Blessings to Sharon and all the family. (I feel like I know most of you.)

What a dear woman was Beth and the world is a sadder place with her beautiful soul gone. When I was 17 and experiencing issues at home, dear Beth and Gene opened their home and their hearts to me. For a time, I was privileged to have Beth as my second mother. I learned so much from her - how to lead a satisfying life of kindness, how to have a career, how to be a loving and supportive wife, and how to be the type of mother that set high standards, but provided the love and support to ensure her children had the foundation to succeed. As a mother, I used dear Beth as a model and if I am in any way a good mother, I can thank Beth for her inspiration. My deepest sympathy to dear Gene, Ann, Beth, Claire, and her loving extended family. Thank you Dear Beth for loving a lost teenager many years ago.

Cathy was my program officer for many years for my NIH grants through her institute, and something of a "rabbi" for the combined grants I often held. She was a lovely person, a wonderful counselor, and a well-read scientist. She was devoted to finding solutions to health problems through science. I liked her very much, and I can hardly believe she is gone. She deserved a much longer happy life with the family she loved and cherished. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Pam Davis

Victor you will really be missed, especially on first Sundays when we phoned with each other. I remember the times as kids we played together, worked together plowing behind the mules, sometimes arguing, playing together at Grandmother's on Sunday afternoons with our cousins, and riding the school bus together for many years. I always thought you would outlive me as skinny as you were with a full head of hair,with color, and healthy. But you are in heaven with Jesus now where we all are looking forward to going when our time comes, which only the Lord knows. Your brother...Richard

Callie and Steve we were so sorry to learn of Victor's passing. We just learn this tonight when I saw it on Facebook. I didn't realize that he was that sick. He has been on our prayer list at Ogden Baptist Church and then Carlton saw Steven on the Sunday after Victor fell at the hospital and he said he was in the ICU but thought he would soon be going to a room. I am just so sorry that I didn't call and check on him again. We are keeping you both in our prayers and hesrts and sending you love and hugs. Please call me if there is anything al all that I can do for you or if just someone to talk to later.

I am happy to say that I got really close with my Aunt Sheila and Uncle Joe. This has been one of the hardest things to ever hit our family. Joe and Sheila both know how close our family was, which is why I was able to have so many unforgettable conversations with Uncle Joe. He always showed so much appreciation knowing he married into a close family. He loved his kids and grand babies to no end. I hope they are dancing together in heaven and watching over their loved ones. I will never forget either of you ❤️

I send my heartfelt condolences to the family. Cathy and I would always kid about what I was going to do next in our career. It was coincidental that she came to MCV in Richmond and worked with some of the same people I had during my MD, PhD training. She then suddenly appeared on the 8th floor of the Clinical Center and saw my name on a number of files and cabinets. Later she also followed me to the extramural side of NIDDK. She did beat me to retirement. We both had many fond memories of our experiences. Always remember the good times.

 

Judy Fradkin posted on 9/23/20

When I heard there was a chance to recruit Cathy to lead genetic metabolic research at NIDDK I jumped at the opportunity and she never let me forget that I began recruiting her while she was still on maternity leave. Cathy was exceptional in so many ways —smart, principled, and caring, with a huge range of interests and talents. Her influence shaped the emergence of new therapies and she helped so many colleagues to be successful. All of us knew that her greatest happiness came from her love and pride In her family. She glowed talking about her daughters’ accomplishments. I grieve for her loss and send all my sympathy to Rick, Alyssa, and Jessica.

Callie and Stephen, My heart aches for you as I read Victor’s obituary. We were good friends during high school and that friendship continued as we gathered as the Class of 64 throughout the years. I remember my last visit with you was seeing you in Walmart in Wilmington as I was in NC visiting family. I hope all of you listened to my message when Victor was moved to Hospice. I have been thinking of you and pray God will help you deal with this sad time. Love and Hugs, Carolyn

I have many fond memories of Miriam. She was my former supervisor, but more importantly a wonderful and witty person. She taught me a lot with patience and selflessness. I remember many discussions with her, many not about work. She loved music and had a way of making others feel valued. Like many others, I will miss Miriam very much. However, I am comforted knowing that her spirit lives on in so many people whose lives she positively impacted. God bless you Miriam.

Terry was such a sparkler - energetic, funny, kind, motivating, and vivacious. I started as one of her Jazzercise students in 1996 in Kalamazoo. When she told us years later that she was moving to NC, I went home and cried! I know she went on to inspire more and more students and share her enthusiasm for health and fitness., and life in general. I treasure the moment when she surprised us by walking into class a couple of years ago. Many of us screamed with joy, jumped up and down, and ran to hug her. She looked like she hadn't aged at all in the interim. How lucky we all were to know Terry! Ed, Kasey, Kelly, and the rest of Terry's family, please know the heartfelt sympathy of all her friends are with you.

Joe was as cool as they come. My earliest memory of Joe is from 1986, our bedrooms were in the basement of our house on N Elm St in West Bridgewater Mass, Joe was on crutches, I think due to a knee injury. I had just seen Nightmare on Elm Street, it was late at night and I heard metal scraping against a shelving unit outside my bedroom door. I was sure Freddy Kruger was coming to get me. Luckily for me it was just Joe’s crutches making that noise, I’ve never been more relieved to see anybody. Joe always treated me well, I have only fond memories of him. Rest In Peace. My most heartfelt condolences to those he left behind. I hope you find solace in this terribly sad time.

So sorry to hear of Miriam's passing. She was one of the first people I met when I started with Counsel. I enjoyed working with her, and learned a lot about being an attorney from her. I also enjoyed talking with her outside of work. We had similar interests in books, movies, and tv shows, and I enjoyed having in depth discussions with her about what we were watching/reading at lunch and after work. Rest in peace.

Victor was a regular Sunday School classmate as we grew up together learning life's essential moral lessons. And when we moved to High School was there as everybody's friend and continued that friendship whenever our Class of 1964 gathered to celebrate or reminisce. A man of few words but a man of sincere words. The memories he leaves are all kind and warm, I will miss my soft-spoken friend as he rests back home and in peace. My thoughts are with you Callie, Steven and Richard.

I had the honor of helping Cathy and Rick purchase their home in Wilmington when they decided to retire here. They were such a fun couple and we quickly became friends. I truly value that friendship and I will miss Cathy greatly! I appreciated so many things about her. Her love of cooking, music and travel, her kindness, sense of humor and compassion. What I will value most of all, is the advice that she gave me when it came to motherhood. She shared stories with me about raising Alyssa and Jessica and I have applied her experience in raising my own 2 daughters. Jessica and Alyssa...you mom LOVED YOU SO MUCH!!! Proud does not even come close to describing how she felt about your accomplishments and the people you have become. You were the lights of her life and her greatest accomplishment. Rick- you know you were the love of her life. I don't even want to imagine how your heart is feeling right now. My hope is that all of the fun memories will be your comfort and that you will celebrate her life by living yours the way should would have wanted. Sharon-I am so sorry for the loss that you will feel with Cathy gone. I am very grateful to her for introducing us. Please know that I am sending love your way as you and the rest of the family go through this loss. Cathy-rest in peace my friend. You were a classy lady and a wonderful person. It was an honor to have known you. With love, Kristina McLeod

I extend my deepest sympathies to Kay, Matt, Ben and the entire Laird family for their unexpected loss. Paul was one of my oldest, closest, and dearest friends, dating back to our days together as undergraduates at UNC Wilmington in the 1970s. Were it not for Paul Laird, I may not have become a professional historian. He was responsible for getting me the job as curator of the former Blockade Runner Museum at Carolina Beach, N.C. in 1979 and, as it turned out, the last curator of the museum. When New Hanover County purchased the Blockade Runner Museum's collection and moved it to the Cape Fear Museum in Wilmington in 1983, I decided to attend graduate school and pursue a career as an academic historian. As fate would have it, I ended up teaching in the Dept. of History at UNC Wilmington, our undergraduate alma mater, for many years. I publicly credited Paul with jump starting my career path. Modest as he was, Paul always downplayed his role, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it. Even after retiring as director of the Friends of Fort Fisher, Paul remained active as a board member for the Moores Creek Battlefield Association and the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society, and an advisor to the Brunswick Civil War Round Table. He and I worked together on many local history projects, most recently the Joseph Ryder Lewis Civil War Park at Carolina Beach. Cross over the river and rest underneath the shade of the trees, my good friend, and wait for us there. We'll join you by and by. In the meantime, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Rick, Alyssa, and Jessica- Such a shock! My sincerest condolences. Cathy was taken away much too soon. I worked closely with her on Cystic Fibrosis and considered her a friend and colleague. We shared a love of applying our knowledge of science to help make lives better for those suffering from devastating genetic diseases such as CF. We also sat together in a retirement class as she expressed her excitement to be going to Wilmington for her “golden years” and I’m happy she had some time there but would have hoped for more. Hopefully, wonderful memories will help lessen the pain now and help sustain us. Susan

I have the image of Catherine in my mind, she is sitting on her desk with a pencil going over a document making sure that the ts were crossed and the is were dotted. She was scrupulous and attentive. She always made herself available to answer any question related to my administrative or scientific shortcomings. She was engaging and ready to contribute and I learned a LOT from and with her. I felt I lost a great guide when she retired form NIH; at the same time, I was happy for her knowing that she had a long list of things she wanted to do in her life that she approached with gusto. She will be missed

"Hi girlfriend." "Hey darling." This is how Mary Ann would always greet me. She'd answer the phone, even if she was busy or tired, but if you told her a funny or dramatic story, she was all in, and all ears. Everything else could wait. She used funny southern expressions that tickled me. She'd often be fixin' to do something; she'd describe people who got away with things as walking in the cool of the evening; and people without two cents to their name as so poor they didn't have a pot to p_ _s in. All of us in her upstate New York posse could never get enough of her. She was the glue that held us together. She put the sparkle in Christmas and the Boo! in Halloween. One year, I showed up on her doorstep unannounced just before Thanksgiving, after a 14-hour drive. Mary Ann didn't bat an eye. She simply answered the door while on her phone, ushered me in and within an hour we were dining at a beachfront restaurant. She was proud to be unconventional, proud of her "daddy" and dearly missed both of her parents. She was an alumni relations director when we met about 30 years ago and she has always been a hard worker, a volunteer, and a lover and supporter of the arts. Mary Ann was raised as an only child, but grew up to be a beloved sister to many. If you suffered a slight or had a rough day, she was the most loyal friend, right in there fighting for you. If you had a funny tale to tell, she'd eat it up with a spoon and ask for more. I'll miss her kind friendship forever. She was warm, compassionate and fun, socially gifted and humble, with an extraordinary soft spot for animals. She lived a colorful life, making friends wherever she went and creating magical porch gardens and pieces of art for her friends. Best of all, she made us laugh...no matter what. I love how excited she got when planning to travel and how energized she'd get when telling a story, gesturing wildly at times, "holding court," as they say. The pandemic took from us the opportunity to be with her during her greatest need, yet Bill was faithfully beside her, and somehow found the time to keep us up to date, too. They both gracefully and lovingly protected us from pain. I will surely miss you, dearest Mary Ann.

My dear Rick, Alyssa, and Jessica, my heart goes out to you! I am still in shock and disbelief! Cathy was a wonderful friend to me and I don't think I would have made it the first few years at NIH without her! I still remember the day that Jessica was born and Alyssa stayed with me while Rick and Cathy went off to the hospital. Was so very happy for the family! I have watched the years go by and was so excited to know that Rick and Cathy found their wonderful new home in No. Carolina! I am so sad for all of you.

Ed, my stepfather of 40 years and the rest of my life, was one in a million. He and my mother got married when I was 5 years old, and he treated me like I was his own daughter ever since. I have so many great memories. The vacations we spent with our Cincinnati family (Ed Sr., Lydia, Paul, Linda, Holly, Shelley, Leon, Diane and boys) were my favorite. From Watts Bar Resort on the Tennessee River to summers at Kiawah Island and our trips to Florida come to mind. Plus our wonderful trips to Cincinnati at Thanksgiving are not to be forgotten. Ed was also the assistant coach of my softball team, along with my Dad as head coach, in my softball days. Ed was always there to move me in and out of dorms, apartments, and my first house. He taught me how to paint the inside of a house (he helpedJ), how to check the oil in my car, check the air in my tires, and gave great advice. His sense of humor was priceless. He could make the funniest faces and was always joking around with me and my friends. I will miss him more than I can say. I am truly blessed to have had him in my life. I love you, Ed.

One of my fondest memories is at a plant managers meeting in your home when Ed cooked steaks for everybody. It was then he introduced me to Dales steak sauce! Ed earned our greatest respect and admiration, not just a s a great plant manager but as a person. one who cared and loved deeply. May his memory be eternal

I came to know Paul through his excellent work with the Moore's Creek Battlefield Association. As a remote member of the Association, Paul always made me feel welcome and valued. His communication skills were outstanding, and everything I observed that he did was done with excellence and careful thought. We had recently exchanged several emails as we always did whenever he published the Association newsletter, which was superb. I know he will be missed by many, and send my sincere condolences to his family.

Sorry to hear this, I only knew Ed through NHCLEOA, he was one of the first members I met. We always sat together on Thursday night dinners. I really enjoyed his stories flying reconnaissance during the war. When he didn't show up at meetings he was in my Prayers always. Not the same year but we shared the same Birthday April 15. God Bless you all. Dan

Ms. Carolyn was a wonderful neighbor. She always had such a beautiful smile and positive optimistic words to say, even in the trying times. She loved her family and enjoyed telling stories to me of their times while overseas, when the children were so young. To the family, you have a wonderful sweet mother, which I am sure you know that and will continue to feel her love for each of you every day. May God continue to bless you. Love to all, Sabra

I fondly remember Herbie from Central High School in Charlotte. Herbie drove the coolest car in town, a black 1951 Ford Victoria with a bright yellow top...that is until he somehow managed to get it upside down in a creek on Chestnut Street. Herbie managed to crawl out unhurt except for his pride and summon help. When help finally arrived, the car was reported to be still running despite being bottom side up. He was known as a genuine good guy with a smile for everyone. Glad to hear that never changed. Sadly our lives never crossed paths again after high school. May he rest in peace.

Gerry and his wife, Susan, we’re dear friends of ours in SeaScape. The first time, we ate at their table, we were amazed at the most Italian “gravy” sauce he, a nice Irish gent made. Sitting around the table was always enjoyable with plenty of laughter. Gerry had a kindred spirit and a gentle way about him. I’ll never never when he volunteered to be the Head Chef at our community, SeaScape for an Italian Night Special event. Once again, his “gravy” was delicious beyond words. He received many kudos from the “gravy” to the Lemon Chicken Cutlets to the Meatballs. Needless to say, the event was the best and a very memorable one at that! We will surely miss our dear, sweet friend, Gerry! Our condolences to his sons, Gerard, Stephen, Chris and Drew and their families. May he Rest In Peace!

As another APO "brother",I too remember his willingness to delve into whatever project was at hand. As well, I and those who knew him and shared days at UNCW will always remember him for his attention to details, and most definitely, his enthusiasm. Paul was always a gentleman. I also enjoyed learning from him, as his knowledge of history was both contagious and so educational. He will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate to know him. My deepest condolences to his family.

I am deeply saddened by Paul's passing. There are so many stories, some serious, some hilarious. We were good friends. He was in the inner circle of my college friends. We ate, drank and worked together. He was an APO (Alpha Phi Omega) brother; most of us were. We were all service-oriented. Paul always rolled up his sleeves and worked along side us. We were all leaders and he advanced to become the student government president after we impeached his predecessor. I am deeply saddened. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

I was so blessed to read Mike's tributes; thanks. In 1971 I was fraudulently denied tenure because the University would not grant me the right to profess Christ within the letter and spirit of our Constitution. It took my Michigan Supreme Ct per curia decision till 1984 for the University to recognize my rights --though the modest Settlement would not permit regaining my professorship. Pray for all Christian teachers in our increasingly Jehovah God rejecting society. To ALL, 3John2

Am sure you know that Dad and you guys were in Korea when I was there circa 1982-84 but we all go way back to his NYC/ELZ days and Japan/Korea/Taiwan and on and on. He was a regular at my poker matches in Morristown (Rod was there as well?) plus more games at his NJ house which may have included both Rod and Chris? A man of personal integrity, respect for others, a tireless worker.....he will be missed by so many of us, a true friend always!

I met Gerry my very first day at Sealand back in 1988. He, along with Frank Caradonna, took me to lunch – 3 days that week to get me acclimated to my new surroundings. It was then that I realized he had the storytelling “gift” and I was an eager subject listening and learning. He made me laugh (many times), but also took me under his wing to show me the ropes. I worked with him again at Maersk, and will always be thankful for the two World Series Tickets he gave me in 2001 when the Yankees beat the Mets in the Subway Series; tickets no doubt destined to a sizable customer! He was a good man to the core, and watching the tribute video was heartwarming to see the love he had for his family and grandchildren. He will be missed. My condolences to Gerard and all of the Bradley family.

I first met Charlie when he approached me about getting involved with the Military Affiliated students at UNCW. At the time, I was the Faculty Advisor to the UNCW Student Veterans Organization and Charlie was representing the Military Officers Association of America. The SVO was growing rapidly, and Charlie said that the MOAA wanted to provide funding to help those students in need. From there, the SVO and the MOAA formed a wonderful alliance and the MOAA has done much to help the Military Affiliated students at UNCW. I will miss Charlie's enthusiasm and his desire to help. I didn't know Charlie very well, but well enough to know he was a man of honor and integrity. May his family be blessed in their time of mourning.

Ward was always proud of Walter, and we both loved being around him. He went through life laughing and making others laugh.

I made it a point to always visit him each time I was in Dillard's. He was was a very interesting gentleman and my honor to have met him.

Walter was my first radio boss. He took a chance on a green 18-year old whose copywriting experience was limited to writing for the “family” radio station, and hired me at WKIX in 1972. It was the greatest job ever! I learned so much from Walter, and he instilled in me a love and appreciation for broadcasting that has lasted for over 40 years.

No one could ask for a better friend than Gerry Bradley. I worked both for and with Gerry at Sea-Land. We remained close post Sea-Land and into our respective retirements. We talked about every 3 weeks or so and I will so miss those conversations. My joy is that he is with Susan again. Rest In Peace, my dear friend.

Walter was a couple of years behind me in High School and we were I believe second or third cousins, so I didn't spend that much time with him. I did, however, in recent years reconnect with him on Face Book and had some interesting discussions. I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to the his family. May he rest in peace.

My best memory of my cousin Tony was how he would say how much he loved Fran. Stopping by for a quick visit on my way to my son in Florida, never once did he not remind me of his love for Fran, and what she meant to him. He taught me how to do that ! What fun guy to be around !

Connie and Katie, I am so very sorry for your loss. Walter will be missed. We communicated sporatically, but it was always a pleasure to see an email from Walter Knox! I knew I would be in for a smile, a joke, or some story, or maybe just a Hey how are you? He often said he missed being on the mountain but didn't miss the B.S. up here! You were blessed with a wonderful husband and father. He is certainly at peace now. Love and hugs to you both.

Gerry Rod, I am so saddened by the loss of your father. I was blessed to have worked with Gerry at Sea-land for more than 30 years. We and our families shared a wonderful experience when living in Taiwan in the late 80's. He was a gentle giant who kept everyone in the room at ease with his great stories and non stop deep laughter, Was fortunate to have spent the better part of a week with Gerry at Spring training in Phoenix following tragic loss of your mother. I don't think I ever laughed so much exchanging Sea-Land memories with he and Kenny Moore while our Dodgers repeatedly took down the Giants. Gerry was a good boss and a wonderful friend. He will be missed by many.

It was always so exciting to see Uncle Jerry. He would keep the local Chinese restaurants in business, and couldn’t wait to school me in a game of darts. Extremely accommodating in his home, if you didn’t feel welcome, well then you were just at the wrong address. I will miss him dearly, and wish the best for my cousins and their families.

 

William (Lad) Carrington posted on 9/10/20

Walter and I met when he joined the KIX Men of Music in 1967. We worked together as a radio family at the station, because we were all more than fellow employees. Later we all reunited in 1992 with the first Raleigh Radio Legends Reunion, hosted by WTRG Radio in Raleigh. Following that one, there were a number of additional reunions with Walter taking the helm as our coordinstor and the catalyst uniting us all in a unique brotherhood and sisterhood. After the 92 reunion we all came to know Walter and love him, far closer and deeper than when we merely worked together. He selflessly gave of himself and gave the rest of us a firmly set center post to hold on to. We have lost much more than a friend. We've lost an anchoring rock in our lives.

Walter was my lifelong friend. We walked home from school together everyday when we were in elementary school in Tarboro. A running joke with us was that I never held it against him that he was in my first wedding! He had an unmistakable voice and was the youngest person in the U.S. licensed to be a radio announcer-- he was 13. When he and Connie lived in Hawaii, I had dinner with them in 1989 when I visited there. They lived in a small town there called Princeville. What are the odds of that! He had a voice that was unmistakable and a groundbreaking career in video production and television, in addition to radio. Our telephone conversations always started with me saying, "Hello, Ace." In 1969, I was invited for his home for dinner in Raleigh. He said there would be another guest. It was Tony Joe White, who made the record, "Polk Salad Annie," and he was gorgeous. He was playing at a local club that night and we all went together. It was an unforgettable night. He was a record producer, a movie editor and a wonderful husband and father. I already miss him.

So sorry to hear about Walter's death. I listened to him on KIX during my college years at UNC (1969-73). I enjoyed watching him as Old Coot Jackson on "Cowboy Classics" on WCCB. Walter did a great job on the commercials for Carolina Waterbed and Stratford House Furniture. I appreciate his work on the KIX Rewound website. I'll miss his contributions to the NC Broadcasting History page on Facebook. My deepest sympathy goes out to Walter's family.

Connie, I don’t think I ever had the pleasure of meeting Walter but had many enjoyable conversations with him, especially about how great radio used to be in the 60’s and 70’s. He was a tremendous broadcaster and a great resource for those associated with the broadcasting industry. We are very sorry for your loss but he is at peace. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Connie, this is shocking news. Some of my fondest memories of working as a freelance lighting director are of working with VPC of America. Never will forget how I met Walter...he called me out of the blue and ask me to come over to his house on East 5th St in CLT. He wanted me to take a look at some lights he had bought just after he had started VPC. That was the beginning of a long enjoyable relationship. We traveled to many countries over the years do videos and shows for IBM. Connie and Katie I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers go out to both of you.

I met Dick at the Red Cross in Disaster Services many years ago. We quickly discovered that we were neighbors and that he and Liz lived around the corner from our family. I always admired Dick’s dedication and love for the Red Cross. Times could be stressful during disaster operations, but he went about his work quietly, always willing to help and offer a supportive hand. When you approached his desk, you could expect that sly smile and the “lowdown” on what was really happening. It was a privilege to work alongside Dick during many disaster relief operations, but it was even better that our family got to know Dick and Liz as friends.

We played poker with friends here and in Holden Beach. His poker buddies thought highly of him though he often took everyone's money. He will be missed by all of us.

The last time I saw Sonja she was looking for cat food for our homeless work cat. We didn't have any so she searched the office until she found a can of tuna and fed the cat with that.

I will miss you my friend and if you're listening, I will feed our cat.

My husband and I met Ted at Dillard’s several years ago and have thought of him often over the years , we often wondered how he was doing and started searching for his business card . We found the card today and I researched his name. Just saw his obituary and other accolades over the past several years . Ted was truly an inspiration to my husband and I , after meeting him at Dillard’s he proceeded to tell us about his loss of his wife Claire and showed us pictures of her . His work effort was amazing and one that we should all strive to have . He truly was a special soul and one that is celebrating in Heaven with his savior and wife Claire ! So thankful we got to meet him and share some of his insight and love for his wife ! Prayers for his family , for their loss of such an amazing father ❤️

Terry was a true friend and her presence could light up a room! With her southern charm and all, she always made you feel like a member of her own family, whether dropping by for a quick visit or an extended stay. She also had no problem putting you to work like family. Terry was not only an awesome instructor and dancer, but also a great storyteller. She always managed to get a funny story or two about the perils of family life in between routines. Terry left us on earth for heaven doing what she loved best – Jazzercise. Knowing her, she’s probably already forming her own class up there. Ed, Kelly, and Kasey you are in my thoughts.

Mr. Ted was an almost daily patron of the Surfside Beach Library. We always knew it was getting close to lunchtime when Mr. Ted would walk in to read the newspaper. He touched the lives and hearts of many people at the library, whether it was the ladies working at the desk who he entertained with his jokes or the other patrons who would sit and talk with him about his long life. Due to COVID-19 we were not able to see Mr. Ted for the last few months and were sorry to hear about his passing. Still, we feel blessed that we got to know him in the first place. I personally was able to wish Mr. Ted happy birthday when he turned 99, 100, 101, and 102. It was an honor to know him.

Aunt Vernell was a beam of light. She and my mom were the tightest of friends in Hialeah, sitting at the table having coffee and chatting daily. Vernell had a way with words like no other and could make you laugh often. She was a warm giving person and we lost a mischievous earth angel. She will be forever remembered fondly and joyful. Deepest condolences to the family. Most lovingly from the Kerr’s of Melbourne Fl and Wilmington NC

Heaven needed another Angel and called for Vernell. One of the nicest person I had the privilege to be around growing up in Hialeah, Fl with Sharon, Connie and Randy. She was always welcoming and I loved her cooking!!! As kids we would try to sneak something by her but she always knew what was going on. Her and Clarence always had an open door for any of their kids friends and believe me we were a wild bunch. R.I.P. Vernell you will always be missed and loved by all who met you. My heartfelt condolences to Sharon, Connie, Randy and the rest of the family. Love to all Mercedes

Terry & her eternal sidekick Maxi at Live Oak Real Estate. We laughed so hard we both had tears in our eyes. We both thought some of the weirdest things were so funny. Terry you always said how much Maxi loved me,but you were Loved So Much by anyone that got to know you. You could appear all business and yet you were ready to explode laughing over something. I couldn't believe it when I heard you had passed. I will never forget you. To Ed Kelly and Kasey; She was a special woman as you well know,always think how she would want you to carry on and laugh about all the good times. You can't help feeling lost, by your loss,but Terry wouldn't want that. She would say "get with it" and think of me in Happy terms. She was a Great friend and co-worker and was so much fun.

Dear Ed, Kelly, and Kasey you were Terry’s world. She was so proud of her family. I was fortunate to be a part of not only Terry’s world, but that of her family and I hope that continues. When the family moved to Kalamazoo, MI, Terry joined the SW Michigan Jazzercise Instructor family. To say Terry contributed greatly would be an understatement. Terry was not only an amazing instructor, she was a best friend. I will cherish all of the wonderful memories that the last 35 years gave us. Ed, Kelly, and Kasey you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Anyone who rescues and cares for animals the way that Melissa did has a beautiful heart.

Kelly and Kasey: Our whole family....Erin, Addie, Mr. B, and I...send you love in abundance as you deeply mourn the loss of your mother. The loss of a mother is a profound one, to be sure. Our love won't lessen your grief, but maybe it will simply help to know that you are held deeply in our hearts. You two lovely, young women came from good stock, from both mom and dad, and we have always admired your parents for raising you properly and lovingly, and with some of the finest manners we've ever seen in young people. We're quite certain that your mother had a good deal of positive influence in your lives and wish we had told her so. (Ed...your influence was also remarkable, and we're telling you so now!!) Kelly, you are a very special part of our lives, and have been for over 23 years. May the knowledge of your mother's passing from this side of heaven to the better side help lift all hearts, especially yours and your family members', as you all journey on without her physcial presence. Remember this... the bible says (in 2 Peter 3:8) that..."With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like a day." (This speaks to the eternal nature of the Lord and our being.) So in just a few moments, your mother will look over her shoulder and see each of you there with her. (This could take many earthly years.) It will be a glorious reunion for the Noes! We Buchtrups love you all to pieces, and are holding each one of you up in our heartfelt prayers.

Dear uncle Fay and family, while I hadn’t talked with my cousin Terry in some time, my sister Carolyn kept me in the loop of many of Terry’s activities. What a joy she was to so many. I saw many pictures of gatherings with friends and family where Terry was there with her shining smile. Her love of dance took her to a place of passion with Jazzercize where she thrived so much. I have wonderful memories of our family visits when we were children. My heart is with you and I wish I could be there to embrace all of you.

 

 

Lynn & Susan posted on 8/30/20

One of our favorite memories of Terry was when she came into our store years ago. She said that she was opening a Jazzercise Studio. She was so excited. She went to her car and got her music and brought it in the store and began teaching us a class. She has been a special part of our lives ever since that day. Everytime she came in she was a breath of fresh air. We will miss her greatly. Our condolences go out to Ed and their girls. Lynn & Susan

Terry is one of the reasons I became a Jazzercise instructor. I remember going to class with my mom.

Dick was a true example of a man who loved his country and proved it with his service in the military and in retirement. Hubert John and I will never forget his support and encouragement during a troublesome hospitalization. His antiquing knowledge was extraordinary and enjoyed. His survival from Viet Nam to his passing proved his bravery throughout his life. His memory will be saved for our boys, now men and their children. Hoping for Full Military Honors when laid to rest. Hugh will remember the time watching old Westerns. Thank you for your service.

Before cell phones, before GPS, we were taking the kids to a youth rally in Kernersville. I had the boys in my car. We were on I-40 between Raleigh and Durham, it was dark, pouring rain, there were concrete barricades along the road, and it was around rush hour. I was following Wynn in his car and had to memorize the shape of his taillights in order to keep up with him in traffic. I will follow you anywhere, Wynn!

Dear Jane, Gabby and the Hair family: I met Wynn around 2005 and I found him to be the most kind and jovial man! I could tell right away that he loved is Lord, his family and his neighbor. He walked the walk and wasn't just ALL talk. I enjoyed conversations with him during health visits about his mission travels and his love of his family. He inspired me to do mission travel as well, which I hope to do one day! Jane, I know you are going to miss this wonderful man that you both have stood together through a LOT of pain! He will forever no doubt be looking down on you and the rest of your family as an angel of God. Love and condolences to you all!

Words cannot express the shock and sorrow that I am feeling. Terry was a ray of sunshine and kept us Jazzercise "girls" inspired with her "never give up" attitude. I will always remember the wonderful Christmas dinners, with the assistance of "Slave 1 and Slave 2", fun pool parties, and the funny stories that she would tell. Terry had a way of making each one of us feel special. My sincerest condolences go out to the whole family, especially Ed, Kelly and Kasey. Terry will be so missed, and Jazzercise will not be the same without her.

Dear Ed, Kelly and Kasey, I never had the opportunity to meet you all in person but I (we) know so much about you. Terry would share "family" experiences during class that would make us laugh and empathize with her. You all were her world. Terry was an amazing jazzercise instructor, full of energy and paizazz! She was a great friend, mentor and serious listener. Terry was loved by so many. May God keep you in His care. May your memories help lift you in your time of need. Respectfully, Linda Garris

Mr. Wynn was more than a brother in Christ, he was a mentor. A man I looked up to and was always willing to listen and pray for me. I will always cherish the memories: his famous Wynn burgers, Youth Rallies, and of course leading the congregation in worship. God took a good man home to heaven and I rest easy at night imagining him sitting with his children. I know my mom is there, too. Mrs. Jane, I love you and I'm continously praying for you during this difficult time.

One of my favorite memories of Terry was during a visit to their home in Wilmington. She enthusiastically welcomed me, my son Chris, and my mom. One night, Terry became Chris’s “Olympic judge” as Chris (then 11 yrs old) did a series of dives, slides, and acrobatics onto a mat in the middle of the pool. Terry gave a hilarious mix of commentary and scores for over an hour. It was evident that she loved life and I am thankful I was able to be a part of it.

Dear Kristin & Riley-- My father John, my sister Linda, and myself were so very sad to hear about your Mom's passing... She was a beautiful and vibrant woman with a generous heart, a warm smile, an infectious laugh, and a talent for finding fun wherever she went! John met Barbara at their Cancer Survivor support group and they became good friends! They often enjoyed each other's company at restaurants, concerts, movies, travel trips, and at each other's homes... I was lucky enough to accompany Barbara and John with my girlfriend on a trip to Las Vegas in 2009... I can't remember anytime in my life where I've laughed so hard for a whole week!!! One evening, Barbara & Dad made plans to take a gondola ride at the Venetian Hotel... My girlfriend and I decided that those two crazy kids needed a chaperone, so we tagged along to try and keep them out of trouble! It was explained to us all that legend has it that when lovers pass under the "Bridge of Sighs" and kiss at that very moment, their love will last forever... As the gondolier steered us under the bridge, singing to us Italian love songs, I turned to my girlfriend and kissed her... Dad turned to Barbara and kissed her, as well... When the gondola came out from under the bridge, I looked over at Barbara & Dad and I started to laugh... Barbara asked me what was so funny?! I looked at my girlfriend, then back again at Barbara & Dad... Still laughing, I said, "I just realized that I'm on a double date with my Father!!!" We all started laughing and it has become a cherished memory in our lives... Barbara...the legend is true...our love you you will last forever!!!

Ginger was a wonderful loving person. She and I were cousins. More than that she was a friend and like a sister to me and my mother. My mother, her first cousin, loved Ginger and her family very much. Sadly, my mother can't remember but I can remember all the good times we had years ago and up until last year. She was funny and loved to have fun. We did lots of laughing when we all were together. She loved God, her church, her family, and working with the children at school. She was a great cook. So much more to say but Ginger has already said it all in her actions and character. Her steps were truly ordered of the Lord and she took every step with grace and the God kind of faith. Earl, Karen, and all the rest of the family not named, Mama and I love you very much.

Dear MaryJoyce and family, I was so sorry to read about George in the paper. I have many memories going back to you two dating out at the airport in the civil air patrol to George sitting over the kitchen table with his pipe studying for advancement at the police department when you lived off Wrightsville Ave. Also when I would visit with Scott and he would come home he would set the siren off for a few seconds to excite a small kid who loved police cars. You all have my deepest sympathy. George was a very kind and good man and you were blessed to have him for a husband and father and grandfather. Sincerely, Betty

Ginger was like family to me. Growing up I always admired her for her beauty and wonderful smile. God blessed me with the Walker family in which I was closer to them than my own family. She was a great mentor to me as I watched her in church serving in many positions. Heaven surely has another angel. I will miss her greatly.

I met Jimmy in the 8th grade. He was in my class and immediately became a friend of mine. He was so easy going and funny. He knew that I liked surfing and told me stories about Hawaii, and how when he was a kid they would bodyboard with McDonald serving trays!? I thought that was so cool. I just saw this so forgive my late entry, but the fact that that gentle kid is still in my mind might make those who truly love and miss him happy. Rest in peace Jimmy.

My deepest condolences to the family. Growing up at Wrightsville Beach, I understand how much Chief Antley did for the community. He helped to raise all of us kids who grew up on the beach, always making sure that his officers treated all who lived and visited Wrightsville Beach fairly. When I was young, Chief Antley gave me a set of handcuffs. Something I never forgot throughout my career in law enforcement. He will be truly missed by everyone.

When Maureen was a Public Health Nurse in Union I was the City Health Officer. And that was many years ago. Our communication through the years was at Christmas but now I know why I never received a card in 2019. She was a fabulous nurse and her departure to NC was a loss to our Public Health Nursing Service. I can still recall her sitting at the nurses' lunch table with her kind smile. God Bless You Maureen and your family too.

She was always bringing me clothes for school and paying me to clean her house so I would have spending money. She taught me a lot through the years but the best thing she did was love me with all her heart. She will always be on my mind and in my heart. Loving her was an easy thing to do.

When you say the name "Chunky" in Wilmington, you are immediately recognized as a friend to all. He was beyond unique and naturally befriended everyone he spoke with. He was infectious in his laughter, his hard work, and his appreciation of you. Like everyone who met him, I quickly came to love this man for he was a man for all ages. The hole he leaves us will heal, but man-o-man is it a huge hole! Prayers to his large family, which includes pretty much everyone. But most of all, his lovely wife, NiNi, whom enhanced his life. The world is less good today...we love and miss you, Chunky! May you find peace and comfort, and if it's not too much to ask, can you offer your services to The Big Guy and redirect some lighting down here? It's damn hot....

Randy Coble, jr. posted on 8/20/20

I just learned of George's passing tonight,(8/20) and was saddened beyond belief. He and I grew up and were best friends during our youth on Walnut Street in Wilmington. My last get together was at Wrightsville Beach when we had some hot dogs together on Johnny Mercer's Pier and then circumstances took me away for almost 30 years with no contact. My fondest memory is when he was quarantined with measles and I snuck out of the funeral home to go see him thru the screened window. That gave me the measles and damn if I didn't do it again and we had the mumps!. These were poor times in the 40's and early 50's and we used to collect piles of newspapers and sell them by the pound to a fish market at 4th & Red Cross Sts.. He was a good, honest & honorable man who served his Country well and his family always. Danny, Mary, we've lost contact but I think of all of you often. My best to George's wife and children, I am truly sorry for your loss.

I think most people who knew Chunky would agree that he was one of the most upbeat, friendly, enthusiastic, funny and kind human beings you could ever meet. 2020 was lousy enough with the world falling apart as it is, but when I heard that Chunky passed away it made it the saddest. Nini, I wish could be there to comfort you and I wish I had words that could do that.

The day I met him, I was a green set prop assistant and he swerved up to a group of us in some kind of souped up go-cart they were going to use for a camera mount that day — he wore a bandanna and a cowboy hat and spoke in his wicked cool raspy English accent — I thought he was a rock star! Turns out I was right. Love you, Chunky.

 

Matt Sullivan posted on 8/20/20

Chunky defined the term ‘one of a kind’, and none of us will ever meet a kinder, more thoughtful and helpful person than he. Quick with a joke and a laugh, quicker still with a positive word or a simple solution, he was class and dignity all the way. A true friend from the moment he met you, Chunky made everyone around him a little bit better. I’m truly better for knowing him and consider him an all time film brother. You will be missed, Chunky, never forgotten. Your influence will live on. Love you, brother. Peace. Matt

Chief Antley was a fine man-a credit to his country and to our Town of Wrightsville Beach. He was a man of impeccable and manners. I never heard Chief Antley raise his voice, swear, or speak ill of another. I never heard anyone speak ill of him. Our sincere condolences go to the Antley Family. We will honor our memories of Chief Antley even as we shall miss his presence among us.

We were all saddened by Chunky's passing. He had a special place in the Ex Pats community here in Wilmington. He was one of the funniest and pleasant participants in our monthly Curry evenings and an honored guest at my annual birthday parties. The stories, jokes and experiences that he had, would keep anyone interested for hours on end. There will never be another like Chunky. We will all miss you forever Mate.

Nini, Chunky will be remembered so dearly by The Literacy Council staff and volunteers. He was such a sweet and caring person and will be sorely missed by many. My heart goes out to you, especially, and certainly to the rest of his many family members.

Grandma , I LOVED YOU SO MUCH ! You were an amazing woman, grandmother, && friend . !!! I’m so completely broken first my mother , you’re only daughter , now you ! You were all I had left of my mommy ! This is not how our life was supposed to go ! I just don’t understand & I don’t believe I ever will until I make it to heaven to get there to be with you and moma and grandpa ! I want answers ! I want to know why I’ve been left on this earth to live life without the 3 main people besides my father that I loved and that I know loved me no matter what , that didn’t judge me & disown me for my mistakes & faults . You and momma and grandpa loved me so much unconditionally and now I’m left here ALL ALONE , with no one to truly love me like I need to be , no one to really show me how to continue to keep going even after I fall short of what I’m capable of . What hurts the most is now I know I have no family to spend holidays with , you were the backbone to the this family !! Our holidays will never be the same . I’ll be celebrating my own now in memory of you and moma and grandpa ! The family I had and loved so much are gone but your memory lives on ! Grandma I loved you so much ! You were amazing ! I MISS AND YOU LOVE YOU ! I know you were so glad to see your daughter , my momma ! I could only imagine the smile on y’all a face when y’all saw each other that faithful day ! God really must needed y’all more than I did , probably to show me just how short this life is and that it’s imperative for me to pick up in yalls footsteps ! I want to be just like y’all ! && love just as hard as y’all did ! REST IN HEAVENLY PEACE GRANDMA ! YOU WERE THE ABSOLUTE BEST ! ❣️❣️❣️

I am privileged to have spent many years on and off set with Chunkey. He was a brilliant light that people were just naturally drawn to. To me he was a friend a father and a coworker. He helped guide me through many highs and lows in my life. I love you Nini for keeping Chunkey in our lives after retirement. When he would visit a set it was like The Rolling Stones just arrived. I had the privilege of sharing stories with the newbies on set when they would ask. Who is that guy? That guy is a industry legend. I love you Chunk you’ll be missed but never forgotten OI !!!

Our hearts broke when we heard the news and we are sending love and prayers to you, NiNi. You two made a great team. This world is a better place because of people like you and Chunky.

‘ The Cockney Rebel’ ‘The West London immigrant’ ‘The Gypsy Grip’ ‘My Dad’ It would be fair to say, my memories are young, and those that I look back at with fondness, are the ones that have taken me from my 40th birthday celebrations to the eve of my 63rd Birthday. I have earlier memories of course, but the recent ones I will cherish. The 15th March 1998, The ship Hotel, Shepperton As i stand with a bottle of beer in my hand, talking to a football colleague, sorry soccer colleague, he starts to look over my shoulder… who’s the guy who has just walked in with the ’pony tail’ and white suit, he looks like an architect, Curly added. Not being able to turn completely I guessed probably, someone from the restaurant next door, looking for a free drink! As I maneuverer, unsteadily, due to the alcohol already consumed, my jaw dropped, as did my beer, the tears started to build, as they always did when he was around, not out of sadness but joy, there he was my Dad. I hadn’t seen him for a number of years at that stage, his filming always keeping him on the move, and obviously relocating to the States, had put distance between us. We hugged and cried a bit and then got talking, …my mate Curly, thought you were an Architect, well said Dad in an overstated cockney accent ‘’ Well, I suppose I am in a strange sort of way, I do build things, design things etc etc’’ I suppose he is an architect. I obviously had to mention the white suit, is that the one you wore to my 21st birthday, by chance, in the same venue…..’ no that was the one I nicked from Roger on Moonraker, I laughed and guessed he probably did, and did Mr Moore not want it back….. again in that lovely cockney accent .. didn’t tell him I had it cocker’ That was the start of several meetings over the next, however many years I next saw him at Nini and Dad’s wedding, what an occasion. And over the next year I think we met on three occasions in three different countries, England, USA and at their apartment in France. We had fun, I listened to his stories, I don’t think he listened to many of mine, he didn’t give me a chance to get any in. I met his friends, saw his world, and enjoyed his company. My Son, Liam idolised him and and visited Wilmington, and France on many occasions. Alexandra being much younger did not get to see him as much as she would have liked, she is always telling her friends about him and the films he worked on. I loved visited Dad and Nini and wish I had travelled over more often. I have been amazed but not surprised by some of the tributes I have read from his friends and colleagues from both sides of the pond. Dad, I wish we had, had more time together, I am heart broken, your memory with live on with my Family, Heather, Liam and Alex, for ever, I will pass on the stories. I’m not going to say rest in Peace, because I know wherever you are, you won’t be sitting still, you will be painting a gate, repairing a fence, or helping someone in a difficult time.

What a privilege knowing Chunky! I worked with him for many years on the Literacy Council (Wilmington, NC) annual auction for which he was a tireless worker and his wonderful wife, Nini, a phenomenal leader. Chunky was warm, loving, authentic, and generous of spirit. He and Nini have always opened their home and their hearts to their friends and their community. Chunky, you will be remembered well and missed greatly! Who will now kiss me on the cheek in greeting?

Had to approach and let him know I appreciated his voice and efforts in the interests of freedom as I shook his hand. I lost my son 8 yrs ago so I know the pain of losing very well. My heart hurts for the great loss. If there were anything I could ever do to assist you from here in Raleigh please let me know. I will continue to pray for healing, strength and perseverance for your family. And may the Lord who sees all reside over you, and if justified, crush whomever did this to Mike.

I will always be grateful that Charles reached out to me in order to meet my son and became a mentor to my son, Bruce (This seems to be a boundless life work and motivation to Charles). I can say he meant so much to me! There is nothing that will touch a mother’s heart than by taking interest in their children- Charles Lewis did that for me, with Bruce, with his interest in Bruce’s future career. He entered my life when I greatly missed Bruce’s father’s presence -in our family- and especially with Bruce. In walks Charles Lewis, a man motivated to inspire youth! A interested and caring man with direct experience and positive input in my son’s future with an understanding of what his future is and could be. Charles could help in a way I never could, in a realm I knew nothing about, the Maritime industry. It makes me sad to know I am not getting another call from him… and pleased to know he made the best decision in life, by choosing Helga. Thank you Helga for making me aware of Charles passing and continuing his legacy by understanding his impact to me and my son.

Mark was a long time member of our gun club, Coharie Shooting League, in Clinton. He would come and spend the day at the range and Lorenda usually accompanied him and Chris when he was younger. We always enjoyed shooting and competing with each other. He was constantly tinkering with his guns and stocks searching for an advantage to hit 1-2 more targets. His unexpected death reminds me of an unexpected discharge he experienced while shooting which we teased him about. I will miss Mark. My sympathies to Lorenda, Chris and Amanda

My condolence to Mike's finace, brother and surviving family members. I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Mike after I brought him to the University of New Hampshire to speak back in 2006. We had a "standing room only" event and the campus was buzzing for a week. A small group of us had the opportunity to sit around a table with him and have dinner and share conservative "war" stories. Mike and I stayed in touch from time to time over the years and I was always grateful for his friendship. He was an inspiration to me and many others, and will not be forgotten. Requiescat in Pace - Lauren S (Your VP)

James, Family and Friends I write this with a heavy heart but I would feel horrible if I missed the opportunity to say something about Gigi. She was many things to many people, but to me she was a cousin, a friend and foremost a wonderful person. Her light shined bright enough to light a room, which it did every time we were together. I will miss her but never forget her. She was a true gem. Love you Gigi.

"Chaz" was a wonderful colleague at UNCW. His upbeat personality and positive outlook on life was greatly appreciated by those of us who worked with him. His student centered focus and mentoring of undergraduates in the Parks and Recreation major, endeared him to many students, my son among them who said "Doc Lewis" is the best advisor anyone could have.

Sidney Claire Smith, Girl, I have searched for you for years, and just today ran across your obit. I am so sorry to know that you had been sick. The last time I looked you up in the phone book, I was seeing Jack Andrews and I asked him to call you and ask you to meet us for lunch. Apparently you were not interested, as he did not even mention me.. MEN??? ~ Well, he too has passed away. (back in Sept 2010) I remember we met and used to hang out 10th grade, going to the MilJo, PV Country Club, Wrightsville Beach, and the fun trips we had with your parents going to Mullins, SC to visit your aunts - my favorite was Aunt Pat? the one who lived by herself, but your other Aunt lived next door to Bert Neil Anderson who was my sweetheart for awhile. I loved him to death and always thought of him when I heard the song "Fat Boy" by Billy Stewart, as Neil was overweight but he was my sugar bear at that time. Remember the first time we double-dated, Neil and I were in the back seat, and I grabbed a Bible and started reading it to him, rather than worry about him trying to kiss me.. LOL! Oh, and the the trips we made to Myrtle Beach and Little River, SC.. Fun times for sure.. I remember Carole McKeithan and I both spending the night with you (at your parents' house) and we had a blast. Seems like we stayed up all night.... Do you remember us walking over to the Cardinal Lanes and bowling almost all night? That was fun, except I would not shut up and let you sleep.. Sorry about that. ;) Love you and miss you girlie God's blessings for you always

My daughter Linda Joy Susie was named after my mother Linda. Joy was born shortly after my mother passed away. Joy and my mother share the same spirt, vibrant personality and a work ethic to be admired. They also shared a cancer diagnosis and the trials and tribulation that accompany it. What I will remember most was Joy’s sense of humor, smile and laugh. I want to thank anyone who ever encouraged or supported Joy. My heart breaks for the people who will miss her most, her sister Megan and Tonia, her brothers Sam Steven and Justin and James, her best friend Brandon and her son Alister. Her last message to me was “I love you too! I am trying Dad. It’s hard, but I am trying.” I believe you Joy. I believe you did the very best you could. I accepted Joy for who she is. I only wish more people could have done the same. She was not perfect, but I believe in my heart she did the very best she could for her son Alister. This is the second time my daughter has been taken from me. The first, I was able to fight and get her back. Unfortunately no amount of fight will ever bring her back to me now. Joy, I wish you happiness, tranquility and peace. As you’re dancing you way through heaven Boo please find my mom. She will love to met you.

To the family and friends of Professor Mike S. Adams, I am so very sorry for your loss. Professor Adams wrote some of the most beautiful essays I’ve ever read. I’m thinking especially of “Look her in the eye” with its powerful surprise ending; “Three pirates look at 40,” which is an incredibly poignant look back through the years of an enduring friendship; the two essays about Professor Adams’ father, “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “The last Sunday morning” (I was unable to find the first in that three-part series, “A good father”); and the dramatic, inspiring series about Professor Adams’ courtroom battles, beginning with “This is Providence” and ending with “Our People.” And then there is the epic “An Embarrassment to Higher Education.” I’ll never forget these essays, and many others by Professor Adams.

I never met Mike in person. I was introduced to him through videos I saw of him from the Fearless Faith seminars that he did with Frank Turek and Jay Warner Wallace. It was Frank Turek’s book “ I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist” that launched my interest into apologetics. So it was my following of Frank and his ministry cross-examined.org that eventually led me to stumble across these fearless Faith videos in which Mike was a part. Like Frank and Jay, Mike was an excellent communicator. I was drawn to his ability to communicate truth in a logical and easy to understand manner. It has only been since I learned of Mike’s death that I discovered all of what Mike accomplished in his 55 years on earth. I just listened to Frank’s tribute to him on Frank’s podcast. If anyone has not listened to that I encourage them to do that because Frank does a great job paying tribute to his friend. Mike’s death was certainly an earthly loss but we rejoice that Mike is with Jesus now. No more hatred from anyone can ever touch him again. Love and prayers to his fiancée and family and friends who loved him.

My condolences to Mike’s fiancé, brother, family and friends. My heart is heavy for you all and for a man I never met. I made sure to read, watch, listen to anything he was involved in. I felt like I knew him and admired his beautiful ability to communicate. I imagine he’s one of the best friends a person could have. Smart, loyal, witty, dutiful, but most of all, loving. Mike cared enough to tell the truth at a time many of us do not care enough to. May his memory be an inspiration to us all and inevitably make us smile and smirk too. I’ll be honored to stand beside you in Glory, Mike.

Mike Adams came to my church for a few Fearless Faith seminars several years back. I had never heard of him before and didn’t know how much he contributed to academia. He spoke about his background, his long fight against UNCW, and his fight for free speech on college campuses. Although I never met him, he would become an inspiration to me. For the past three years I have been teaching in higher education, and just this past week I ran into my first challenge as a Conservative-Christian. I was forced to attend an anti-white and anti-Christian training session (of course that is not what they called it, but that’s what it was). Not going to lie, I wanted out of academia immediately. It was mentally tortuous, almost like being in a gulag. But then, I thought of Mike Adams. Although I am not tenured like he was and can easily lose my job, or not get a renewed contract if I speak out, he would think me a coward for not fighting back. So, I will continue the good fight, and not quit or keep silent. Adams bravely paved a way for all of us with a right mind in academia, hopefully we won’t squander what he gave to us. May his memory be a blessing to those who knew him. May the students he touched carry on his legacy. And may everyone know that there were plenty of us who LOVED MIKE ADAMS.

Mike Adams was a colleague at UNCW albeit at a different department. He was a gadfly, one that is actually of extreme value, quite beneficial, and much needed in every campus. Beneath all the academic accomplishments, success in fighting campus politics and the many avenues Mike used to express his strong views based on his Christian faith must have laden a fragile human being with all the burdens that are part of all our lives. Mike fought for strong academic programs, not frill courses and programs that do not add much to neither scholarship nor benefit students’ success in life. In a word, the commercialization and thus the lowering of academic standards in our universities appalled him. Mike was a stalwart warrior of free speech for both faculty members and students alike. The Christian faith is based on a loving and a forgiving God, Who said of Mike, I am well pleased.

Manlius comes from a strong line of independent men that didn't work for others but paved their way as true pioneers despite the prejudice and injustice because of the color of their skin. It was not a deterrent yet it was an unnecessary challenge. I know I will see him again, here on earth and he will be free of all of these burdens. I knew you as a teenager. Sleep well, my friend. When you awake the earth will be renew. No more suffering and pain. I'll see you, soon!

My heart is heavy at the loss of one of the sharpest minds this world has ever been privileged to have. Our country was privileged to have Mike fighting for freedom and true tolerance. His departure is our loss. May we learn from him for years and the minds shaped by his teaching help to truly free the minds of our country. My deepest condolences to his family and fiancee. I hope to meet Mike one day in heaven and thank him for being so bold.

I met Mike at Summit Ministries several years ago. I visit Summit Ministries every summer and always make a point to listen to Mike lecture. Watching him with those students was awesome. He became what a consider to be a friend, he considered me to be crazy (chuckling). I heard of his passing that Thursday evening and immediately was in disbelief... not Mike, couldn't be. I was sad, I angry. We have lost such incredible warrior for Christ, a champion for the unborn and for free speech . I will miss his humor, so often I would fine myself bursting out in laughing at his satire and his many puns...he was the master of puns for sure. Heaven has welcomed home an incredible man, Mike is eternally at peace. He will be greatly missed.

Where to start? I got to UNCW in 2000 as a lazy college student just looking to skate through college while having fun. It was then I met Dr. Adams in Criminology 101. From the first day of class I knew this was a man I wanted to follow. This was a man God put me in my life for a reason. I took every class he offered. I met with him individually to discuss his class and my others classes. We had long talks about the struggles I was having in college. He was always there to listen and talk. I graduated in 2003 and the one staff member I would miss would be Dr. Adams. I wanted to stay in touch but figured he would be too busy. Enter 2006 and Facebook. When I signed up I remember repeatedly looking for him. One day he popped up and I was the first person to friend request him. He always remembered to give me that credit as his following grew. Im about to be 40 which means for half of my life, Dr Adams has been a huge influence in my life and my decisions. I admired his strength, his faith, his acumen and his desire to fight for the unborn. I will miss him dearly. Until we meet again Mike!

It sounds like UNCW lost one of the, if not, the BEST Professor they ever had. I appreciate the stand Mr. Adams took, and pray for more godly men to start taking the same stand he did. Based on his testimony I feel confident as a Child of the King myself I will one day have the honor of shaking his hand and thanking Him personally! I am praying for his family, fiance, and friends to find the peace and comfort that only God can give. I pray you all have your own personal relationship with Jesus Christ so you too can see Mr. Adams again in Heaven! 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Although I never met him, I have greatly admired Mike Adams ever since I first read one of his articles some years ago. I have few heroes in this world but Mike was definitely one of them.

Eva’s friends at the knit shop will never forget her. She had been a vital part in getting us all out of our knitting frustrations. I do not believe there was any knitting problem she could not solve. We definitely had to concentrate on what she was always teaching us. Helping others was not sufficient for her---she was a true friend to all and we all loved her in return. Eva became our Queen with her special chair at the Quarter Stitch knit shop. Even in her absence, her designated chair was highly respected when empty. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rich and their two daughters. Eva is at peace now feeling no pain in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. The rest of us will live on having had the privilege of knowing her and all the acquired knitting knowledge this lovely noble lady shared with us all.

We miss Ms. Pepper. We got to know her during our monthly deliveries with Meals on Wheels. She would see my 7 year old and light up. She always had chocolate or a treat nearby that she wanted to share. My son still remembers her every time we go to Honeybee Lane. Her fun and loving spirit stays with us. We had family pass near the same time (grandmother and father) which is why we are only finding out about her passing now. We have asked for months ...since Dec 2019. I'm so sorry for your family's loss but am glad to have known such a wonderful woman. God bless you all!!

Mike Adams was a smart individual who loved people and took a genuine interest in others (even if they were liberal!). Mike was a strong communicator and friend to many. He encouraged many people to trust God, forgive others, and take a stand for truth. I'm grateful our friendship, Mike. Mike encouraged me to complete a collection of pro-life stories, called We Choose Life. I was so honored that Mike contributed his powerful story. I'm very grateful for our times at Summit Ministries and that we were able to grab dinner in Minnesota and North Carolina. May Christ continue to bless the work of Mike Adams.

Uncle Winship was always the "fun" uncle. He always had jokes to share and made everyone laugh. When I was a kid, he also loved the Redskins and the Orioles, just like his dad. I remember biking to his house one day when I was 12--and it was quite a long distance. I also remember when he met Rosemary and everything in his life seemed happy and peaceful to him. He was very excited to live in NC and raise his beautiful children.

 

Sam Bodnar posted on 8/1/20

Mike changed my stance on abortion during the Fearless Faith Seminar at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in the summer of 2017. Along with Frank Turek and J. Warner Wallace, Adams ignited a desire within me to actually take Christianity seriously. God's calling on the lives of these three men led me to give my life to Jesus at the end of my freshman year. Mike spoke with compassion and conviction and he wrote with a rhetoric that was satirical and sarcastic. He engaged audiences by inviting them to explore the contradictions in their thought patterns and desired real, gospel-centered change in their hearts. His passing hurts me and more importantly, his family, friends and former students. Dr. Adams, you will be greatly missed.

We have respected and admired Mike over the years. He was a great patriot and role model for all of us. Mike had great courage and boldness during this time in our beloved America. His conservative voice will be truly missed and may we all have the courage and boldness to help fill the void of his departure from this earth. We believe Mike heard the words, when he entered his eternal home, we long to hear from our Lord; "Well done my good and faithful servant".

Charisse, I helped raise you as a baby nurse. You were a handful and kept me on my toes. I will never forget when we were in the peds area and the child in the first room had a fever. You took liquid Tylenol in and the mother asked if it had red dyes in it. You didn’t know and told her that and the mother started saying that well we are vegan and can’t have red dyes. You looked at her oddly and said well I am Presbyterian and your child needs something for his fever The resident that was behind me started choking and I had to keep a straight face It’s been a great story I have shared of you for many years. I will miss you in this world but your memory will always be with us.

It takes courage to stand by one’s convictions without wavering or compromise. Mike was a complex man who could strike like a lightening bolt inflicting hurt, while simultaneously holding deep and generous feelings inside. I experienced both. Please know that there was a reservoir of goodwill for many in his heart and a deep and silent pain that we could never touch. May you remember him in the full light of who he was. Deepest condolences to all who loved him.

Dr Adams was my professor for five classes throughout my college career and I helped him do research for a book he was in the process of writing just recently, right before my graduation. I considered Dr Adams as a mentor in criminology and he was the only reason I continued on in the major after my freshman year. There are not enough words to express how truly sorry I am for the loss of Dr Adams. I had an immense amount of respect for him and deeply admired his dedication to his students and his work. I would like to offer my condolences to the family of Dr Adams and express how much he impacted my life personally. He will be sincerely missed in a way that I have only felt about family members in the past. Rest In peace Dr Adams.

Even though it has been years since I’ve seen you in person, not a month goes by that I don’t tell one of the hilarious memories I have of you... I can see you now at the Thanksgiving table asking if you have anything in your teeth (when in fact you have tons of broccoli in them;)... I can hear you saying, “Homey don’t play that,” when you disapproved of something, and I can remember so many hilarious encounters you had while working at the ER....And let’s not forget the summer you watched us when Mom was out of town... Dear Lord you drove like a race car driver! You left us too soon.... please continue to shine down on those you love and fill them with laughter and fond memories of their time with you... xxoo. (PS. Give Grandpa Joe big hugs from all of us and tell him I’m still waiting for that bill)

Jon Sanders posted on 7/31/20

I'm just shattered by Mike's death. He was the classic happy warrior. Those who knew him knew his profound love and respect for his students. He was what a prototypical Professor was supposed to be: challenging, provocative, uplifting, and all those things with the deliberate instructive rationale to improve his students' minds and teach them, not only the subject matter, but how to reason — not what to think, but how to think. To his friends, he was warm, engaging, caring, and again, uplifting. His defense of the First Amendment was without parallel. These many comments here provide individual aspects of the loss we have jointly suffered. When the warrior was no longer happy, when the uplifter needed uplifting, I wish I had done more. It was unthinkable. It still is. I grieve our loss, and to Mike's family and other friends, I grieve for your loss, and you are in my prayers.

All the times we did not walk on the sidewalk, but wade through the 2 blocks of town ditch to each other’s house. Remember making CAMPS out of refrigerator boxes?

In 2016, I was considering sending my son and one of my daughters to Summit Ministries in Colorado. When I realized that one of the staff that summer was Mike Adams, I signed them up immediately. Having followed Mike's writing on Townhall.com for years, I was just hoping that my kids would be able to listen to him speak. Not only were my hopes realized, I have a nice picture of my son and daughter on either side of Mike, all three smiling – it's something I will cherish for the rest of my life. Apparently my son received some “demerits” at Summit and had to spend some time in the kitchen where Mike wandered in and engaged him. He relayed that Mike was really smart, and very nice to him. Although I never had the privilege to meet Mike in this life, I am looking forward to thanking him soon in Heaven. Mike's testimony is one the Irresistible Grace of God, drawing His people to himself, and thereafter living for Him. Thank you, Mike! And thank you to those of you who loved him dearly.

For work I would drive down to UNC to meet students of conservative groups to help with resources for their groups. I was told of this professor who would help me identify more conservative students. Mike never hesitated to meet with me and talk about what was going on on campus. In fact, his kindness went as far as getting lunch whenever I was there, letting students know why and how I could help their groups succeed, and keeping in touch even when I came back to Arlington. I asked him several times to come up to Arlington to speak at different events but he was so busy, spending his time, selflessly helping so many other people. I’ll never forget how he looked at life with a sense of humor and a childlike innocence, despite everything he had gone through in his life. We will miss you.

Mike was a brave soldier who died in a war that was not of his choosing. He served his country with passion and bravery that very few possess. He had a towering intellect and a quick wit. My daughter and I met him at a speech at UNC Chapel Hill and we will always be grateful that he was willing to share his profound talent. Please know that he will be forever missed, we will be forever grateful, and your family will be in our prayers.

Being a friend of Charisse's was like being in a family. A friend of mine was in the ER at Cape Fear Hospital with a broken hip which required surgery. I called Charisse to get information about the surgeon assigned to the case because I knew she would be as concerned about my friend's care as I was. I was relieved when she said the surgeon was excellent. When I thanked her for sharing her opinion she said "That's what family does".

I worked at GMC with Charisse and we had the best time together. She would always bring me lunch and was always I mean always making me laugh. I remember her always sending out thank you cards for thank you cards she would receive from others when she sent them or gave them a gift for what ever the occasion was. ME: “Charisse, what are you doing ? “ CHARISSE “ writing a thank you card” ME “ why ? They sent you a thank you card. CHARISSE “I have to send them a thank you card for the thank you card” Me “ well you’ll we be sending thank you cards back and forth” I haven’t talked to her in awhile but I will never forgot or will forget her. She was a very special person to me.

Mike Adams was brilliant and funny and passionate and caring and a brave and true patriot. We did not know him personally, but we were blessed to attend his debate with Willie Parker and it was nothing short of amazing. We are saddened at how the mob continually came after him and extremely disappointed in UNCW to say the least. Mike has the victory in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and we look forward to seeing Mike again one day as we worship the Lord all together in eternity.

Laura Morrison posted on 7/29/20

Hi, my name is Laura Morrison and in 1994, I met Mike Adams during my first criminal justice class. I thought he was just another student walking in, and when he asked "is this everyone?" I thought, "this guy's weird"..... he actually ended up being the professor, I think he was 29 at the time. It was during summer school and at the time, that was the most fun I had ever had in a college class. He was absolutely amazing at what he did - the amount of supreme court cases I can still cite is unreal, and all his students loved him (the ones who took his classes and knew him). In 1994, I was majoring in foreign language study and it was quickly becoming clear that wasn’t my thing. In 1996 after taking a year off and trying to figure out where I wanted to go with my life, I thought back to Mike Adams and decided to study criminal justice. He made it fascinating, he made it fun, and he made it easy to learn. So I switched my major because I found criminal justice and the law so fun, it was easy for me to comprehend (unlike French). I spent years learning from this man and some other amazing professors (who are no longer at UNCW). Mike taught with gusto, with enthusiasm. He knew how to get your attention and he wasn’t afraid to say controversial things. Loudly. He taught us about the disparate criminal justice system and how change was needed and how the stats just don’t make sense. He taught us to recognize racial bias when we heard it and also when we saw it in ourselves. And he took the time to do his best to ensure it wasn't repeated. Some summers he spent travelling abroad and attempting to help countries with disastrous prison systems. Seeing the types of atrocities that can really break someone’s heart from the lack of humanity. He taught young people who would be going out into the world and were expected to treat other people fairly, and hopefully make a difference. Sometimes you have to make a lot of politically incorrect statements to get it across to people how bad things are and how bad they can be. The vast majority of kids in college just have no clue what poverty and racial injustice are doing to this nation and just how long its been a big problem. They just think its something that will make them look woke when they bitch about it on Twitter and Youtube. Mike taught those of us who would be going out and making a difference in communities. I went on to spend a decade in Tampa, investigating child abuse and working with juvenile offenders. I was good at it and I know I made a difference. I remembered the lessons he shared (his lessons stuck with you!) and would discuss these theories with the kids I worked with. I would hold groups on the lessons he taught on "Commitment to Conformity." And idea he and Dr. James Johnson expanded on in a book they co-authored and was used in one of my college courses. In the lesson he used the movie "Boyz in the Hood" and how committing to yourself and your own future is why Tre got out of that car at the end and why Doughboy did not. Its a very complex thought that is easy to break down and help middle school and high school kids understand and it uses an example that is familiar to them. I was unaware of Mike’s social media presence, but I can say, that didn’t make him who he was. He won teacher of the year twice, for a reason. Go look at the academic works he published. I’m so very sad that he’s ended his life in this way and that all anyone will ever see is this current rhetoric. I'm heartbroken that the word "vile" is being used as a descriptor for my dead friend. Mike Adams was a good man who had an amazing talent for teaching. I never met anyone who didn’t love his classes. They tended to be filled to the brim each semester. Outside of school, Mike became my friend (and yes, just my friend). You would always see him out with his friends because he really loved to socialize. He really loved people. He really did want what was best for people. Don’t let today’s social media bullshit blind you to who people really are. I think there are plenty of examples in modern society of a "social media personality" not matching the actual human person. Don’t let the media’s love for a gory story full of a white man’s supposed bad words turn you from the real accomplishments of this man. Mike Adams was a man, who is spite of his social media posts, has left the world a better place. Tangibly. College kids and humanity in general right now need to grow up and grow some balls. College kids CERTAINLY don’t need safe spaces. They need to be confronted with reality and if they are going to be going out into the world of law enforcement, social work, or any criminal justice/sociological work, they need to be confronted HARDER. I watched a lot of people run away scared within weeks from hard jobs. I only left the field because I couldn’t afford to live on the salary they pay people who matter and after giving 10 years of my life to what can be such consuming work. But, I am so proud of the work I did, and it was all inspired by Mike Adams being an amazing professor I wanted to learn more from. I hope soon that the media, social media, and these "social justice warriors" that are so quick to espouse their own ideals as being righteous and grand and the absolute answer understand what it took me a very short time to learn working in the community. There are no right answers, humanity has evolved in a way that both far end view points are important and integral to society and that inevitably, humanity must meet in the middle. Right now, it feels like no one listens to anyone else to understand their point of view, they just listen so they can trash it. Compromise is America's only way forward and the left is going to have to understand the right and the right is going to have to understand the left. Mike Adams knew that. He knew I was a liberal, he knew I was a feminist, and I was still one of his favorite students. I would be very interested in how Dr. James Johnson is currently feeling about this right now. They were friends and collaborators on ideas and work for many years. I just found out that UNCW fired him in 2012 and chased him all the way to teach in Fiji. Dr. Johnson was another amazing educator. A few years ago, I looked forward to trying to convince my nieces to go to UNCW when they were ready for college. It was such an open minded place full of good professors and so much fun to be had........ now, I doubt I'll even mention it. My heart is going to be broken for a long time over the death of Mike Adams, over what turned out to be a suicide, and over how vilified he has been in the media despite that he was just a normal man who had some, at times, extreme opinions. I to, have some extreme opinions at times, I guess they are just on the right side of the media. But at the end of the day, in a real friendship, you understand you're not going to like 100% of everyone and you just do your best to just love people while they're around.

I was instantly in love with your infectious personality & your beauty. You were the first person on the earth that Larry & I felt comfortable with taking care of of our firstborn son, Michael. I watched you grow into an amazing mother of your own children. I'm not sure I've ever seen any Mama who loved their children, & whose children loved their Mama, as much as you & yours. Except, of course, your Mama, aka Mamie. Please watch over her & your children, & all of us who loved you so much. There is a gaping hole in our universe right now. We loved you so much. Peace.

Dr. Adams was an inspiring professor when I knew him in the late 90's as a CRJ student at UNCW. Getting into one of his classes was not easy because students from all other major's wanted into his classes. He was passionate and his enthusiasm was appreciated by all. It's sad what has transpired and my thoughts are with his family.

HIs fellow professors weren't very supportive of him...and he was really an awesome educator. He didn't bow to the mob, he stood up to them. The mob was so destructive to his life....I noticed even his fiance didn't want her name published. Mike....RIP my friend. You were a true American Patriot...representing the good of America - and standing up to the evil and destructive. I'm sure you were just worn out and needed a long earned rest.

2 years ago, Dr. Adams met me in his office for office hours. I was nervous about taking his Criminal Procedures course because I had just been diagnosed with ADHD and his course rejected the use of technology and I was nervous that I’d miss important notes, seeing that we only had 4 grades (10-question T/F tests). He gave me a mini speech that, in the moment, I found slightly offensive. After going home I realized that his speech was to teach me to not let things hold me back from success, even though they are things that I can’t control (I.e., my adhd). He also spiked my interest in becoming a DEA agent in order to get drug dealers off the street. Before Dr. Adams, I didn’t think I could become a DEA agent, I didn’t think I was strong enough. After Dr. Adams, I know that as long as I push forward and view obstacles and opportunities I can accomplish anything I can set my mind and will power to. I’m going to get my DEA badge, in honor of the legacy Mike Adams left in my life. It’s been hard to see his controversial satire form negative opinions of him by people who had never met him. Dr. Adams was my favorite professor and such a great man with a genuinely kind heart. I’m so so sorry for your loss.

Obviously a brilliant man and I didn’t know he was a guitarist. May God be with your family at this time. Rest In Peace

I am heartbroken over Mike's death. I followed Mike on Facebook and Town Hall for quite some time and was the recipient of much learning from his writings. Although it has been many years ago, I knew his Father, Joe Dee, Jr. and Joe Dee, Sr. was my Grandfather Nathan Adams's brother. Joe senior was a great friend of mine whom I loved greatly. I didn't discover where Mike was until a few years ago when my Brother, Roy Adams, discovered his mother on Ancestry. Sometime later I wrote his father a letter, at Mike's request, shortly before his death. Mike was concerned that his father was not a Christian and was attempting to witness to him. Although I never met Mike, I feel his loss in an acute way. His work on defending free speech and his work defending the unborn is a loss, not only to me but to so many others that followed him. That work will not be in vain as the many followers, like myself and those much younger than me, will echo the principles that he lived by for years to come. I have been praying for the family and wish I could meet some of you in times to come.

Mike did what few do, put is career on the line to defend the right to speak freely. He was and will continue to be an inspiration to those willing to speak even when what they have to say will be attacked. Rest in peace, Mike

I last saw Mike in December when he came to Raleigh to speak about the importance of freedom of expression in higher education. As always, he was witty and inspiring. I will miss his courage, tenacity, and wisdom as I continue to stick up for the freedoms Mike defended.

My condolences to Professor Adam's family. Although, I did not have the pleasure of knowing Mike personally, I have followed his writing for many years and feel I knew him through it. Mike's passing is a terrible loss to this community.

What a sad and tragic loss to us all. I pray for his family and fiance, and hope to be able to attend a public memorial for such a great man. Mike, I loved you as a brother in Christ even though I never met you. You will never be forgotten and it gives me peace knowing you are in the presence of God for eternity.

Jody Ward posted on 7/28/20

Mike, you are gone from us far, far too soon. I wish that I had time to thank you for the impact you had on my children and for speaking boldly to defend the precious unborn. You were a stellar example of courage, faith, and clarity of thought, demolishing arguments and every pretension that set itself up against the knowledge of God. For us, this is a great, great loss. May you rest in peace, in the presence of our beloved Savior, until we meet again before the throne of God, singing, "Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!"

I will have fond memories of you for the rest of my life. From our days carpooling from Leland to work when I was precepting you, to our countless shifts together providing forensic and emergency services to those that needed it in the middle of the night, to comparing our Catholic upbringing‘s, to our double date at Port City Chop House, to our love of motherhood. Although, I was always envious of your parenting skills. My favorite quote from you was when we went outside to see the orange moon and you said, “there’s more orange on my fingers from those Doritos then there is in that moon!“

Oh Charisse , what can I say ? I was just talking about you with a friend and telling them about our crazy shenanigans, we could run A side with a 2 to 10 ratio and then meet before work with everyone for dinner ❤️My heart is sad the world has lost a great Nurse , beautiful human and wonderful Mother . Till we see you again

 

Tyler posted on 7/27/20

You were there to take care of me when I ended up in the emergency room. We laughed because even though I had pipes for veins you missed (I’ll always believe you did it on purpose). You always greeted me with a smile! From the first day I met you we always laughed and joked. Your sarcasm was always betrayed by the look you gave when I questioned what you were saying. Going to miss you!

 

Bertie Belvin posted on 7/27/20

Oh my, so hard to believe you are not here with us anymore but you are another reason for me to try to be a good person so I'll see you again. You took such good care of me in the Duke ER in 2005. Jim and I will always be thankful your loving care. I'm sure you're are as beautiful as an angel as you were a mortal.

I remember holidays and visits in Pittsburgh. I think of all the fun family reunions. But probably the most precious memory we shared was our last one when you attended my wedding. I didn't know then that we wouldn't have much more time. But I truly thank God that we shared that moment of joy and celebration. I'm so blessed to have you as my aunt. Every glass of wine I enjoy in this life, I'll raise to you. I will love you eternally, G.

Mike was the best guy I ever met. So funny, So kind, so caring. Even though we are from completely different backgrounds, me being a Yankee, Mike of course from the South. When we were put on the same bowling team over 28 years ago, we just meshed. We also played a lot of golf together. In fact, one thing I will always remember about Mike is that when the chips were down, he would always come through and carry the team. And I think he came through for everybody who ever met him. The best way I can describe Mike is “real.” And to me, that is the best compliment you can give to somebody. Carol, we are so sorry about this. We love you so much.

Rosemary and family, My heart is breaking for all of you in the sudden loss of Ken. I met both of you when you embarked on your interior design project with our firm and I always looked forward to our meetings as you were always so delightful and engaging to speak with. I loved that Ken was a man of science, being an ophthalmologist, as well as a lover of the arts, being an amazingly proficient piano player. I remember re-doing your floor plans multiple times in order to accommodate his beautiful grand piano! Your playful banter underscored what was a tremendously palpable and deep love for one another and I was excited for you both to embark on this new chapter in your lives. He will be exceedingly missed, but not forgotten, as he lives on in your beautiful memories and in the smiles of your beloved son and new baby granddaughter. With sincerest and heartfelt condolences, Leslye Pearson

I know your safe but I still have a hole in my heart. Every year I will do something for you on my birthday. Remembering I spent my 40th birthdays saying goodbye. I love you so very much. I know you are with me I will hold on to my faith we carry you with us everyday.

Dear Maureen, Mickey, Colleen, Kim and families. I am devastated to hear this news. I often think about you all, and remember growing up together, riding our bikes around the neighborhood. Your father was a big presence in the community and well loved by all. I am so sorry for your loss. I will be thinking and praying for you all.

I met Eva only 1 1/2 years ago. Her beautiful smile and engaging eyes were amazing. Then I began to see her funny wit and kind heart. I will always remember her telling me about how she and Rich met. Her eyes lit up, her smile went from ear to ear, and the love that she had for him radiated. She was so proud of her two daughters and told me all about them. And of course one day she surprised me with a pair of knit gloves which I treasure. My thoughts and prayers for the family and friends. She touched so many lives and made everyone feel happy!

 

Catherine Kemppinen posted on 7/24/20

I didn’t know Eva except through her daughter Chrissy who absolutely adored her mother and who shared many stories about her. On occasion Chrissy would have something on that was quite beautiful and I would ask where it came from. Chrissy would say “ oh my mom made it for me!” I believe Chrissy inherited her mothers sense of humor too. But I know that Eva was surrounded by a family that loved her dearly and let her go with grace. My love and condolences to this family.

The first time I visited The Quarter Stitch, there was Queen Eva ensconced in her wicker chair "throne" with a plastic crown on her head. I knew immediately I was going to enjoy spending time with Queen Eva. She was so witty, funny, patient with us beginner knitters, incredibly generous with her knitting knowledge & talent, & just an all around nice person. She will be missed.

 

Frances Hill posted on 7/24/20

I am so sad to hear that our beloved Eva is no longer with us. She was the soul and life of the knit shop crew and we all recognized her as the Queen. She was so generous with her knowledge and such an amazing knitter, that we all depended on her for guidance, I think about her always when I knit and I have so missed seeing her during her long illness. I am glad she is no longer suffering but I miss her deeply and she will remain in my heart as a special friend. My condolences for Rich and her family.

John and Noreen lived across the street from us for more than 10 years. John was the neighbor one could ask for. Friendly, affable, always smiling, and ready to help. We often attended events at the Fraser house. John always spent time with each of his guests in the most welcoming way. Regrettably, due to busy lives and the pandemic we were unable to see John in the last couple of years. We fondly remember John attending our son's wedding in 2018. We think of John as an outstanding friend. We will miss and cherish him always. Jim and Victoria Green

I'll never forget the first time I met her, she was sitting on the wicker loveseat in the shop, knitting. I remember thinking how beautiful she was, and how fast she could knit! Little did I know at the time what an impact she'd have on my life. She was so incredibly kind, I never heard her say a harsh word about anyone, but those of us who knew her well, learned to interpret her knowing looks. She was incredibly funny, an amazing listener and absolutely tender hearted. She supported me in so many ways the last couple years at the shop, what I wouldn't give to have more time sitting on her left, with our needles clicking away. She will be forever in my heart, and I just know she and mom are laughing and knitting away on Heavens choicest threads, hope they don't work it all up before the rest of us get there. ♥️

Dearest Lifelong Friend Noreen and Family, We are truly saddened by the loss of dearest John. I met John at IBM when he was a dedicated and very thorough corporate auditor in the late 1970s. He was newly single and all the IBM women thought of him as "eye candy" when he showed up at our office to audit. I think we would have given him anything (haha) because of his handsomeness!! A few years later at IBM he met Noreen and I would always see him hanging around her office and they both always looks "love struck". The rest is history!!! God Bless the years you had together and his wonderful memory. May John's legacy live on in all your daily lives and you carry all of his life lessons throughout your lives and pass them down through the Fraser generations . God Bless John and his wonderful military service too. He was one truly remarkable man.

 

Julie and Jim Dulin posted on 7/23/20

Johnnie was a wonderful woman and friend. We loved her dearly. Some of the best times of my life were spent with Johnnie fishing at Lake Okechobee and staying at her and Thirsty's cabin, surf fishing at Sandy Brooke Inn in Sebastian, happy hour at the Pub, dances given by JFK Hospital, playing poker and so many others. After Jim and I moved to Sebastian, Johnnie would come up and spend the weekend or we would go down to see her. She was part our family. We didn't get to see much of her when she was ill, but talked to her and kept in touch. I'm so glad she called me shortly before she passed and told me what had happened. I think we talked for an hour. Thank God her niece Wendy rescued her from that rehab center. We will miss her and her wit and charm and she was such a good cook. Saturdays were always steak, fresh mushrooms and baked potatoes for dinner. We cooked many of those. Rest in peace my dear wonderful friend and tell Thirsty we love him too!!!

 

Jo Svitzer posted on 7/23/20

Eva leaves us with so many fond memories. Our "Queen" of knitting kept us laughing even when she was ill. As I have told a friend, think of her stash of tee shirts and yarn, Swedish pride, and bottomless pit of knowledge. Love and peace to her family and thank you for sharing Eva with us.

Jane and Ken Harkness posted on 7/23/20

Jane and I were so saddened by the death of John. We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Noreen and his four children. During the last few months of his life John and I would have coffee on his porch. I told him I would bring the coffee and would he like something with his coffee. He responded, “I like donuts”! So I would bring him two of his favorites, glazed and old fashion. We would sit and visit for an hour or so and he was usually very positive and upbeat. The day after our last visit he texted to tell me that hospice was going to start coming to the house. I asked if we were going to still be able to have coffee. He said “yes” . We never had that last cup of coffee. I’ll miss my coffee buddy!

Stephen Furnari posted on 7/23/20

I am so sorry to hear about John’s passing. The tribute posted online was beautiful, what an amazing legacy he and Maureen created. With any big, extended family, as each older generation passes, the younger ones become more distant. I think it’s just natural, and the extended Fasano family was no different. But in our case, John, Mickey, Colleen, Kim and me, a generation of second cousins, in this huge family, had the unusual good fortune of this moment where we spent a lot of time together as young adults. In the scheme of life, it was a blip, just a few months in 1989. But those few months were some of the most fun, most memorable, most cherished in my life, and John played such an important part in that. You wrote about how he was the “glue” that held things together in the Fasano family, and for those few months, for this distant cousin, it was no different. The strangest things come to mind when I think about him. Like liverwurst & onion sandwiches followed by hours of heartburn, trying to keep up with him in his Jeep on 25A driving home from work, that devilish look that he’d get when he was being mischievous, or, whether intentional or not, how he had us in stitches laughing. Belly laughs -- the kind that make you cry. My heart is heavy for your family, because I know how much you loved him, and he you. I had the privilege of witnessing it first hand. Love and condolences all the Fasanos. Thinking of you with fondness.

There was never a time in my life that I wasn't the most thankful person to have such a great role model, not only teaching me but also my children how to be a great person. We are all so lucky to have had YOU in our lives. The memories you've created with this family are absolutely priceless. Your hard work and perfection in everything you did or touched will be something we all strive for. I just wanna say here that I will always miss you and you will forever be in my heart! I know you will watch over all of us in your own special way. Thanks for being my DAD and my best friend. Thanks for always being the BEST HUSBAND to mom that there ever could be, a true role model.

My sister Agnes was like lightning, when she was around things happened. She loved her family fiercely, her children came first and she was so proud of them. When they were first married Agnes got a monkey as a pet. She would dress him up and take him out and of course got lots of attention. When they went out they had to get a sitter for Maynard. One nite it fell to my Dad. He was watching TV and Maynard was in his cage which he got out of and before my Dad could react Maynard took a can of bacon grease that was in the counter and dumped it all over the kitchen. Luckily Agnes and Tom came in to find my dad chasing Maynard and they took over. Needless to say my dad never was asked to monkey sit again. They had to get rid of Maynard when Tod was born because they were afraid that he would hurt Tod. Agnes loved her animals with a passion. I loved my sister with all my heart and will miss the phone calls. I will miss her beautiful face and her sense of humor

I met John in the Carolina Bird Club when we were new residents of North Carolina. He led many of the bird walks and was always patient and liked sharing his knowledge. He took Sue and I to South Carolina and showed us all the hot spots there. We helped him carry his big lenses and scope to view the shorebirds. He made our trip fun and interesting. He wrote a nature article for the State Port Pilate newspaper (Southport) every month. I kept all the articles which also contained his fantastic photos. A great guy to know and he will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family.

Oh my god ... what a profound sadness. As I approach my own retirement, I was just googling my best memories of GE and came across this truly sad news. We were cubicle neighbors. As I read through the other memories, I was reminded of Gigi's quiet brilliance passion for technology. Of course, her first passion was James. We shared a reverence for Star Trek and I remember she, James and I went to a Star Trek Convention to see James Kirk (aka William Shatner) back in the 80's. A brilliant smile extinguished ... condolences to James and her family.

I'm still in a bit of shock over Kathryn leaving us so soon. I am so grateful we got to laugh a lot and dance at Hedy & Bill's wedding. We made all kinds of plans to see more of each other. At least 20 years ago, we worked for different companies but would stand at the edge of our auto show displays and pretend to work while we yapped. I will never forget Glen Ivy. We made up songs and funny poems. We laughed and talked our faces off. I have so many fun memories. They all have her big, contagious laugh. Dear friend, I love you. Until we meet again. xo

I knew Steve and Diana when they were neighbors in Newark. Steve was running Grayridge Construction at the time and also developing other projects such as the Commercial Building, NAFCO, and built the new Hammett building in Lyons. I helped Steve move to Wilmington, N.C. and was their guest there for Thanksgiving several times. Steve was active in his community, gave people jobs, sent all of his children to college and helped Newark get through rough times.

When Kathryn gave you a hug, you could feel it come straight from her heart, it was loving and sincere like everything about her. She made our Saturday mobile adoptions at The REAL Bark such fun, breaking into impromptu dance routines, singing, or doing a dramatic reading of the grocery store weekly ad when we were stationed in their parking lot. It was hilarious and had us all in tears. Now we're in tears for a very different reason. Our friend, our sister in rescue has left us and taken a piece of our hearts with her, leaving a piece of hers for each of us. To the Cherasaro family, you have our deepest condolences on this terrible loss. We hope that knowing how much your wonderful daughter and sister was loved by so many, and the positive impact she made on the world, will bring you some measure of comfort. Connie would like to invite everyone to view a tribute video that she made on behalf of Kathryn's Real Bark family. https://youtu.be/cj5WeRoQtB8

Kathy’s boundless spirit springs out of this tribute video. I am counted in the community of those who love, cherish and are deeply grieving her loss. Our friendship began in the University of Detroit Theatre Company and spanned countless delightful adventure filled years. I fondly remember spending a fun filled Thanksgiving with your family Mr. and Mrs. Cherasaro. Kathy and I have not been in contact for more years than I care to count. My loss. I’ve enjoyed seeing and responding to her on facebook. It assured me she was well, thriving and bringing joy to those in her world, a small yet meaningful connection. I will always treasure the memories of our time together. Her passing takes my breath away. Dear family and friends of our extraordinary Kathy, please accept my condolences, love and prayers of peace and comfort.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Cherasaro...I never had the opportunity to meet either of you, but I feel as though I have; she always spoke so warmly of both of you--her whole family. It was something we had in common: families who truly love and support. Kathryn and I met 10 years ago while working on a show at Company of Fools in Idaho; she instantly enchanted me. Not only did she have THE BEST stage scream ever (absolutely chilling), but she was glamorous, quirky & hilarious. She had the looks and charm of a 40's movie star, and the kind of humor that reminded you she was not all delicate grace and poise; she was tough and smart! I instantly loved her. And I was blessed because for some reason, it was mutual. That time, 6 measely weeks in Idaho, was the longest time we spent in the same town. We had a long-distance friendship all those years, but it was one of the most true, kind, and generous things I will ever experience in my life. We would travel specifically to see each other, sometimes long flights, sometimes accidentally finding that we were in the same place at the same lucky time. "JACKIE! Darling! I'm in town for a long weekend. Come see me!" There was never any hesitation. She introduced me to new art, old friends, and a particularly gracious way of living... KC, Kath, K...Kathryn. Anyone who ever loved her knew unconditional love, excellent advice, true connection, and unwavering support. She made everyone feel like a celebrity, and made every dinner, brunch, stroll, cup of tea, glass of champagne, and phone call an event. She was kind and generous to a fault and talented beyond words. For as long as I live, I will remember the way her eyes sparkled, the way she threw her arms out to greet me and that she held on with strength belied by her size when she embraced me. Kathryn changed me and my life for the better, and though I've never met Mr. & Mrs. Cherasaro, please know that my heart is with you, and you forever have my gratitude for creating this entirely lovable, wholly loving being, and for sharing her with all of us. We are heartbroken, but we are forever blessed for having known her. Wishing all of Kathryn's family and dear friends love and peace. I feel sure we all have an angel watching over us now. Godspeed, K...I love and miss you deeply. I'll bring the champagne next time.

I was married to Richard "Dick" Doughty from 1998 to 2017 after going on a blind date that friends had set up. Dick and I had many wonderful years together and we enjoyed camping with family and friends, skiing, and Dick enjoyed hunting and fishing and playing golf-although never quite perfected the game!!! Dick worked in EMS as a paramedic for many years both at Capitol and Delta Ambulance in Maine and then went into his own business doing carpentry and remodeling. Dick ultimately went to work at the VA and enjoyed his job there working with and caring for other Veterans. He worked his way up from a second shift house keeper to management in the Environmental Services department. Dick had many friends here at the VA. He will be sadly missed by many. " Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, Love leaves a memory that no one can steal" Rest in peace Dick and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends in NC and Tennessee.

Did you ever meet someone you would later come to realize was something quite special? For me, knowing Kathryn has been such a discovery. To be crystal clear, evidence flows that her life's light was set on high-beam and the ever present sparkle in her eyes says she left it all on the table. In leaving Kathryn, many of us are wanting and needing more of you. The many gifts you shared, demonstrated and celebrated also leave us aspiring to be more for our loved ones. We are grateful to have shared with you special moments and life understandings. We know you are listening...we'll do our best!

The empty hole I feel in my heart will take a very long time to fade, if it ever does. I take great comfort in sharing stories about how you were so beautiful, vivacious, compassionate, funny and so incredibly talented. Even though we met through Nissan, you were never really a colleague... you were my Chicklet and I was Tipsy Canoe. From giggles to belly laughs, we connected immediately and I am so eternally blessed to have known you. Your gift to the world was to share love and light, and you did so gracefully without even trying. Your smile and mischievous eyes will forever warm my heart which so desperately misses you. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow... I will always, always love you.

Kathryn, you gave my mother, Patricia Thompson SO MANY wonderful moments in life. You gave of yourself completely to my mom. You were her third daughter, her fifth sister and quite possibly her best friend. You cooked, you traveled, you laughed and played like the silliest of women. You may never know this but you gave her life renewed. She cherished you beyond words; I only wish I could thank you for these gifts to her soul to your sweet cherubic face. All my love to you in the next realm dearest Kathryn. You're a real angel now...

This journey of what we know as “life” has it’s trials, triumphs, victories and defeats. It’s pedestrian, spectacular, mundane, and unforgettable days... weeks... years. Time is a construct we use to quantify these mercurial shifts in our experience. Every once in a while, if we are truly open and present, we encounter a being, a soul, a spirit that transcends All the limitations of what we think confines or limits us. A presence that, purely by it’s existence, opens the recesses that we were unaware we possessed. A light that relentlessly finds a way to illuminate a path to joy, to understanding, to kindness, to unimagined treasures of just the simplest of things. I feel honored to have experienced, known, and worked with one of these rarest of spirits. My dear dear Kathryn... I am eternally grateful for the light & life you unconditionally shared with me. I am forever inspired and empowered by the example of your fearless approach to this crazy trip we’re on. I know you have peace now that the journey has run it’s course. I will miss you, but will carry you in my heart until I cross that line. Just save me a glass of wine when I show up... Could you? Godspeed Friend ❤️

I moved into the cottage 15 yards from Kathryn's cottage 6 years ago, and we were friends almost instantly. She was like that. Over the years for each other we were friends, dinner buddies, confidents, and pals. She would cheer me up when I was down, and vice versa. I am much older and was looking forward to having this dear person in my life...for the rest of my life. I miss her very much. I can understand the loss her family and her friends who knew her longer and better than I.

 

 

David Pulice posted on 7/15/20

Kathy had the most sparkling, uplifting personality I have ever had the pleasure to have met. It seems like I'm in some obsurd dream having to saying goodbye. This is so unreal and difficult. I hope that "better place" we've always heard of, truly does exist, and that you are smiling down on us right now with that amazing smile of yours. I also hope we will see each other again someday. But in the meantime...know that the world is a bit darker with you no longer in it. That you have held a very special place in my heart since the day we met. And that I love you very much. Peaceful travels my friend. David

Kathryn was probably the most positive, fun, uplifting, and inspiring person I have ever known. And she was not only a generous, kind, and giving person, she was also EXTREMELY talented. Her generosity carried to her work on stage, and she always BROUGHT so much to her work. Having had the pleasure of being her scene partner on more than one occasion I can only say that I wish every actor was half a giving as she was. I called her "cartoon," because she made me laugh, and she made me happy. Every single moment I ever spent with her (over the last twenty five years) will he carried as a precious, cherished memory. I will miss her. I will try to be more like her.

After forty years of sharing life’s ups and downs, this special couple’s love had grown exponentially. They brought out the best in each other. A wonderful bond of understanding and respecting the needs of one another. Pat was a wonderful stepfather, excellent chef, and loved his Elks Lodge.

Your dad was an incredible man. I am so glad I had the opportunity to know him a good portion of my life. He was such a down to earth person who I could talk to about merely anything with no judgment. He helped me in some of my hardest times of my life, encouraged me and believed in me from day one. He’s taught me so much with his excellent craftsmanship. He was a huge help rehabbing our house, and I have that to be an everlasting memory of him. Our house would be in total chaos if it wasn’t for his insane knowledge and guidance through it all. I have so many good memories of him, and as I continue refinishing furniture, I will try to be as half as good as he was with the amount of skill he held. He would talk about you girls a lot and how much he loved and cared for you all. I hope that you know that he had so much love for all three of you and his grandkids. I could go on and on about what an incredible man he was, but I’ll leave it at this. I hope that you and your family can find comfort during this difficult time. I loved him like a second father, and I can’t imagine the pain you three are feeling. Prayers to you while you heal.

Our sweet cousin Gigi, was the youngest family member of the 4th generation of the Richardson Family. My brother Rocky, and I had many great memories growing up in Pittsburgh. We loved going to Olive and Bill Gambrell home for family gatherings. Gigi, Rocky, and I loved having fun in the swimming pool in the backyard of the Gambrells. There were large cookouts many times of the year at the Gambrells. Gigi was always with my brother and myself having fun, and always laughing. I enjoyed seeing Gigi at the Richardson Family Reunion every two years. Gigi was always smiling. Seven years 6/22 to the day my mother ( Boots) passed on 6/22, Gigi was united with her and the angels. We loved Gigi very much. .

Dear Erbe family, It is with true sadness and surprise that I read this morning of Pete's death. I extend to all of you my sincere and profound condolences. I am a Hotchkiss alumnus and have worked for the School for 20 years. It was during the great Class of 1955's 50th reunion planning and preparations when I worked closely with Pete and got to know his incredible enthusiasm not just for Hotchkiss but for family and life. More recently I spoke with Pete on April 10 when I called simply to "check in" in light of the pandemic to see how he and all of you were doing. He concluded that call by saying "You have made my day," a sentiment that was most mutual. Be well and best wishes, John Reed

Even when I took ill, he cooked and delivered personally a full course meal to our home. Kind enough to come to my mothers mass. Shared with me how much he missed his mom. Loved his kids, grandkids and beloved Alice. It was a privilege to have known you Ken. I know for sure you will be resting in peace. May God Bless You in Eternity Amen

We sat at your table for so many wonderful meals surrounded by other friends and family and have so many wonderful memories. Your love for your family and friends had no bounds.

Gigi. Just her name makes me smile. Hers was the most authentic friendship I've ever known. I met her at a wine tasting in West Chester, OH in 1998 and we became fast friends. She has such a quick wit, great sense of humor, wisdom from hard experiences in life and a giving heart. But she managed all theses trials with grace and dignity. She was so self sacrificing even to her harm, even when it hurt. I have not met a more kind soul. There are so many memories that I will cherish of her. I thank God for allowing me the opportunity to call her my best friend. Like Jonathan said to David, "You will be missed, because your seat will be empty" 1 Sam 20:18. Gigi, save a seat in heaven next to you because we'll have a lot of catching up to do. Some great memories that are truly Gigi. Cooking was not one of her favorite hobbies, but she didn't want me to be alone for Thanksgiving one year when my husband was away for a funeral so she invited me to join her and James for dinner. What a lively conversation over turkey. I had experienced one of her passions: politics. She and James conversed like a tennis match. It was wonderful! I remember going to Pittsburgh and staying at her parents home, sleeping in bunk beds in the room Gigi grew up. We fell asleep giggling like school girls. We woke up with the beautiful smell of breakfast compliments of her dad. This was one morning she spoke before her coffee...;). There was a tree in the back yard that her dad showed me. He had planted it the year Gigi was born. Her love for music was inherent and began with her parents. She educated me in New Orleans that there is a BIG difference in Jazz and Blues and she liked jazz.  But not all jazz, a very specific style.  Who knew there were so many differences? I watched her enjoy music through dancing early in our friendship. Then as the cancer progressed, I watched her enjoy listen to a jazz eyes closed, tapping her fingers to a 3 piece band in Pittsburgh last fall. We nearly closed the place down but she was having such a good time, we didn't want to leave. Her love and kindness was demonstrated when she graciously listened to my grandson play his saxophone for her in an impromptu recital after dinner at my son's house. Who wants to listen to a 10 year old play music other than an grandma? Gigi did and she unreservedly praised his "tone". I imagined that she had said those same words many times to James as he practiced. What a gracious lady!!. She had a way to make you feel like the most special person in the world. She was truly a beautiful gift from God. I will miss her greatly.

Katheryn and Charles were very supportive during Scott's first deployment to Germany. The time spent with them was always a fond memory and the exhortation he received from the Trulls has stayed with him for years. During a trying time with Scott's health, Kathryn reached out to me and encouraged me on how to be a supportive wife and to help him the best. I never met Kathryn in person, but when she spoke to me on the phone and sent me messages, it was a lifeline that I needed. Praise God for such a Godly woman to make herself available to me, a stranger. The world is a sadder place without her, but I look forward to meeting her one day and giving her a big hug and thank you.

Kathryn was a true friend, I met her at work many years ago. She taught me many lessons in life, to include forgiveness and trust. She was truly a child of God and shared her love for him with others. A true Angel and now she at home where there is no more pain or sickness. In the arms of Jesus!!!

Katheryn was a wonderful spirit. Quick to smile, a Southern Lady with just the right accent. I first met her in 1982 and in those 38 years I do not recall an unpleasant word ever uttered by or toward her. To know her was to know true grace.

Beyond selfishly sad....my dad passed away tonight, after a valiant fight against 3 different types of cancers!!!! He was so strong and filled with hope until this past Tuesday. He was my step-father but the best father I could ever want. He and my mom were soulmates and he was the example of how a true man should love a women. He spoiled my mom....we would joke he loved her so much he ruined her but that wasn't true. She spoiled/ruined him too....lol The unconditional love, loyalty and respect they both showed one another for over 40 years together taught me, made me grow up and most of all to appreciate the people that true love you!!!!! Pat Mulvey thank you for being my dad and tonight wasn't goodbye; it is see you later. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! AND GOD KNOWS HOW MISSED YOU ALREADY ARE. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

One of my all time favorite birding trips was a CBC trip with John in the Rockies. He was an excellent guide and I can't remember ever laughing so much. It was a wonderful week at the end of May. I can't remember how many miles we traveled, but it was a lot. The group was compatible and though we were weary at the end of each day, it was well worth it for the birds we saw and the companionship we shared. It was the only trip I have ever been on where EVERYONE rolled out of the vans for a snake, but couldn't get them out for a group photo. That trip will always be one of my favorite birding memories. John, you will live in my heart forever.

I thought I would be able to see you one last time but had this dreadful feeling that wasn’t true. You declined faster than expected and even when I left I thought I’d be able to make it there in time. But that’s I’m glad your suffering has came to an end. I wanted to write you letter long ago to let you know that I think have developed so well because of the example you set. I didn’t get to see you one last time, but I’m glad I was able to speak to you one last time and tell you I love you and thank you for everything. Throughout my life you were the one man I had the outmost respect for. You got me into superhero movies when we saw the very first x-men movie together when I would come every summer to visit. After that, you always took me to see the new superhero movies every summer and those were my favorite times. You were overall a very quiet man but those times were quality and I thoroughly enjoyed them. After I enlisted we bonded more because we were able to relate more to each other. You were the male role model that I thrived to be. You were very successful and took care of my mother and grandmother, and I could always just see how enthralled and in love with you my grandmother was. As I grew older I learned about the depth of your taste in music...especially Pink Floyd, which I found to be another mystery to the dynamic of your personality. Through my eyes you took care of your family, treated everyone with respect, and at your core just a good person. I really wish you could’ve came to my graduation at USF but I know I made you proud. Just knowing you I kind of picked up on your work ethics or what I thought it was and incorporated it into mine. From our very last conversation, I promise you I will not stop my pursuit and will stop at nothing short of greatness. I appreciate you setting example of how to work hard and take care of your family. I never felt any judgement from you or Grandma and always felt safe in that regard. I appreciate that. I love you Grandfather, and I hope I could make you as proud of me as I am proud of you being my Grandfather. RIP Pat Mulvey.

I have known Mr.Gugan for three years. I saw him every Wednesday morning at the Wilmington Health infusion department. I was his nurse and he NEVER had a bad day. He was always cheerful no matter what his circumstances were or the pain he may have been in. I loved talking with him and hearing about his life and boy did he love Robin. He was an example for me on how to cherish your spouse. He is missed by all of us in the infusion department and one of our greatest memories is last Christmas he came with the Barber Shop Quartet and sang Christmas carols for all the patients. We will miss you Mr Gugan

For the last 20 years, you were a shining fixture in my life at St. Paul's UMC. You would walk in twice a week with your tool belt and your smile and ask "what needs to be done?" From filters to carpentry to painting to errands and all other types of building maintenance, you were always there - capable, willing and generous with your time and talent. Working closely with you brought me close to you and Janet, and you are always in my heart as a father figure. I have hardly ever met someone as kind, gentle, humble, and faithful. I will miss you always, dearest Ray. God will most certainly give you peace and a special place close to Jesus in heaven - for a good man and a faithful servant.

Tony and I are so very sorry for the loss of dear Tim and send our condolences, prayers, and hugs to Robin and family. Tim and Robin were among the very first people we met when we started attending services at UUCWNC nearly three years ago. They made us feel so welcome and invited us to go dancing with them. At that time we were busy unpacking boxes and just never got around to it, but we wish we had. Tim was a bright light in our congregation. We always looked for his friendly face, wide smile, warm handshake, and upbeat words. We will deeply miss him.

I'm not sure where to start.... I met Gigi around 1989 at GE and began working with her soon after. Gigi was a brilliant and beautiful person, but so very humble. We worked on many projects together over the years and I was able to be part of 3 patents with her and a few other coworkers. We traveled to Japan a couple of times training inspectors on the system that she had developed special software to analyze inspection data. We were a good team, and I learned so much from her. About 13 1/2 years ago our female Lab had six puppies, Gigi mentioned that a friend wanted to get a pup and asked if she could take one, we were happy to give one of the black males a new home. A couple of weeks later, Gigi told me the friend decided not to take the pup and asked if I minded if she kept him, of course I said she could, and this turned out to be the best gift we could have ever given her! Buddy (Which she named him) became her Best friend! I could go on and on with memories of our friendship, but I'll keep it short. I considered Gigi one of my best friends, we laughed and cried together, and even after she moved to Wilmington we always kept in touch. We had lunch whenever I made it down for a work visit and often were called on to help out with problems on the inspection system she had such a huge role in developing. I miss her smile and our talks, and I as you can see from others comments, I am not alone. The last thing she said to me about a week before she went home was "I'm in God's hands now" and she certainly is. Gigi I'll see you later! God Speed!

One day after a service, we were walking around the building and Tim stopped us and asked us to pick up food for MHC. We had never done that before but we said "YES!" because Tim asked. We could never say "no" to Tim! Loved his smile and his positive attitude. You couldn't help but love him. He will be missed on every level.

I well remember John's posts on the carolinabirds listserve. I didn't know him personally but his obituary reflects what I sensed from his reports of his birding adventures. We also share a love of Little Gidding, and the TS Eliot quote that was not only appropriate for John's life, but for our current times. It's clear that he has earned the Biblical praise, "well done, good and faithful servant.". My sympathy to John's family and friends. I lost my husband in March, so I'm well aware of how especially difficult it ts to navigate grief and loss in a pandemic. Special blessing to each of you. Ann Blue Robertson / Winston-Salem

Kathi, I am shocked and saddened by your Dad's passing. I dearly loved John and took him birding out to Ev-Henwood just three months ago in mid-April, recently collected his birding books for UNCW, and last texted him, saying, "If you ever want to go birding by car...." I was on the Board of Directors of Cape Fear Audubon and so enjoyed seeing him at the lectures and on our monthly bird walks. I shall miss him so. Lots of wonderful memories! Hope his cat finds a good home. I know how much John loved him.

I am shocked and saddened to hear about Jackie's passing. I have such fond memories. I met Jackie through my friendship with Jennifer Scheffel Edmisten back in the early 90's. Jackie didn't know me from Adams house cat, but the first time we hung out together she treated me like she had known me all of our lives. She was so funny, lively and made me feel so welcome to be a part of their group when ever we did things and hung out together. We had many adventures together, hanging out in Wilmington and heading up 17 to Jacksonville so we could dance with Marines at Thunderbirds. Because of my acquaintance with Jen, Jackie and Dorene, I met my best friend and soul mate, and we have been married for 23 years and raised a wonderful 20 year old daughter together. My prayers are with with Jackie's sister, husband, and her precious children and step children that she left behind, and also the many many friends so personally effected by this loss. Rest in Piece my dear friend, even though the course of life has made us estranged over the past few years, you will always hold a special place in my heart.

Jackie was certainly a kind and loving person with a generous soul and larger than life heart.

I remember his smile and a great sense of humor. In life you don’t encounter many truly special people but John was in that group. I am a better person for knowing your Dad! God bless you Kathi and your family. You have a Father that you can be proud of.

I went to Germany to teach at Spangdahlem Elementary in August 1985. On the second Sunday I was in Germany I visited Trinity Baptist Church in Metterich. Kathryn & Charles invited me to their home for lunch after church. They made me feel like family. That made a huge difference in my life. I knew that Trinity was God's place for me. I met my wife, Ann, there. I became a deacon there. I grew in love for God there. Kathryn and Charles will forever have a special place in my heart! Thank God that they were the obedient servants that they were.

We are sad now, because she was such a strong sweet lady. But, we will always have our memories of Edna to make us smile. She was a great person who added so much to every life she touched. I can't take your pain away, but I can be here to talk or reminisce if you want. Our Merciful God says "Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:35, 37- 39 Let us pray: Dear Lord, We thank you that nothing can seperate us from the love of God in Christ. Not even death. For those who live in The Lord, when they leave the body, they are forever happy in the presence with The Lord. Thank you Lord for Edna's life, and all the years we shared with her. We lift her to you today, in honour of the good we saw in her and the love we felt from her. Please give us the strength to leave Edna in your care, in the knowledge of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.

I interviewed Gigi for a robotic engineer job in Wilmington, She was so shy and quiet I was afraid the shop would not be a good place for her. The last thing I asked her in the interview was “why do you want to leave the lab and work in a shop”. I’ll never forget her answer” I need to push myself to overcome my shyness and learn my trade hands on”. I was sold on her then. She quickly became my fav because she never backed down. Inside that shy lady was a heart of a champion, We are are better for knowing her. You just don’t meet that kind of person everyday. RIP my friend

So sorry to hear of Pastor Marvin Gwinn's passing. He had a great calling and annointing on his life and the kingdom of God has lost a great soldier. Sorry for us but happy for him...no more suffering or pain. Love you Marvin and will miss you.

She was an amazingly smart, fun, & lovely woman & we are sorry we did not see her before we moved to Florida this past March. Our sincerest condolences are with James & her family & friends.

Joey....one of the three musketeers of GMF New Haven in the late '70's and thru the mid-'80's. Don't know what happened to the #2 musketeer, Bob Burke, but #3 is here and deeply sorrowed by your passing. I only hope that my mini telephone calls to you brightened your spirits as they did mine. We tried to make it fun to come to work. You led the way as everyone worked hard and partied hard. Now that you are at the big "choir practice" in the sky, hold a spot for the rest of us. Peace my dear brother, I love you. Bob O'Connor

I always felt at home with Joe, both being from ct we could reminisce!! He was like a brother to everyone he met, my grandchildren adored him, they could never wait to go to his cookouts!! He was a generous man and would do anything for you except drinking his moonshine. I will always remember you Joe. RIP

I am so very sad at the loss of this wonderful pastor and man of God. When my parents would be in the hospital, he not only visited and prayed with them, he would sit with me in the waiting room comforting me. He visited at their home praying and comforting all of us. Without a doubt he really cared for everyone. As much as we will miss him, angels are singing and rejoicing as he enters Heaven . Thank you my Heavenly Father for blessing us with such a wonderful man of God as Pastor Gwinn .

Gigi....you don't picture her, say her name or thing of her without hearing her voice, or seeing that smile and gleam in her eye. I had the pleasure of being on teams with Gigi at GE for 28 years. I spoke last with her April 23 when spoke of old times and her look ahead to her upcoming retirement. With tears in my eyes, Heaven gained an angel 6/22 and we lost one. Gigi, rest. Your journey has had many stones and rocks in the road, which you navigated as you did every day with smiles, grit, and grace. Your educational accomplishments attests to your goal and determination to never lose site of your goals and purpose. Rest in His Peace Gigi....and I know, you will continue your goal to provide for your family and friends with a new level of ability you now have attained.

Smart and articulate, she could make you laugh or cheer you up with a few kind words of encouragement.

Jerry was the coolest uncle a man could have. Especially a young man. I remember when I went to work with him as a 14 year old, I thought he was the coolest man. He had a cool 1967 RS Camero, he taught me a few new words and he didn't take any crap from anybody. Uncle Jerry finally sold me that cool Camero after about 30 years of bugging him. Thank you Uncle Jerry I will miss you. I love you Aunt Bobbie, Jerry Jr. and Tim.

Geoffrey was Ma-Ma's Baby Boy. When I lost him many years ago, I had lost a Big Part of Me, and the purpose I had for living, but there was Absolutely Nothing I could do except pray everyday for him, his safety, and that one day he would come home. I Thank God that three weeks before My Baby passed away, my Dreams almost came true. On Mother's Day I received the Very Best Gift, I could have ever asked for. Geoffrey called me to Wish Me, a Happy Mother's Day, and he told me How Much He Loved Me. We spoke for hours, about so many things, and how we were going to spend the rest of our lives making up for Old Times. I was so happy that all I could do was cry. After that we spoke everyday, or texted one another, and OH, HOW WE LAUGHED ABOUT SO MANY THINGS, and cried about others, but we did it together, and made Big Plans about being together on the 4th of July; but God had other Big Plans for My Precious Boy, and decided to take him home to Rest In Peace with the Other Angels. I thank Chris, who I love like he were a son of mine, for all he did for his Best Friend, to make his final weeks a better place to live, and to All of His Friends who have expressed their condolences, and Unconditional Love. I'm sure Geoffrey is in Heaven, watching down on all of you. I will be having a Memorial for Geoffrey. Please feel free to call me at (910) 350-0629, and this way I can inform you of the date, time and location of the Memorial, if you would like to attend.

Joey and Gloria, I am so sorry for your loss. I did not see the arrangements in time to get to the service but I would have loved to be there. I loved your mom dearly and she was a special blessing to our family. She did a whole lot of sewing for all of our family over the years and we shared many conversations over the years. She kept me up to date on all of your family and she spoke of all of you with so much love and pride. She attended my children’s weddings, helped alter prom dresses, make costumes for their many events. I will miss her dearly. I loved sitting and talking to her about our Long Leaf days. She was awesome and such a great role model! I pray for comfort for your family.

I am so saddened by our former pastor's passing. Pastor Gwinn preached a sermon that led my husband, Michael Tartt, and me to the altar. We were saved and have served the Lord since that day. My children began their foundation of learning about Jesus under his ministry, and my children still have a strong relationship with the Lord today. Pastor Gwinn was with our family through many tough times. He dearly loved my mother and father in law and Mike's grandma. We had so many joyous times together. We are praying for the family during this difficult time.

This will always be a special memory for the both of us that we will cherish forever. We pray for strength, peace,and love forJill, Josh, Rachel, and their families.

Marvin Gwinn was a friend to all, but especially to the hurting. He would leave the crowd to find the one who needed a friend. He would not kick you if you were down, rather he would kneel down with you and offer a hand to help you get up. Our hearts are sad for the family and for ourselves, but we celebrate this man of God. Marvin Gwinn was a true Christian.

I only met Pastor Gwinn once. January 6, 2019. My sweet Momma was in the hospital and we weren't sure she would make it. Her pastor couldn't come, but when Rev Marvin heard how scared she was, tho he had traveled all day, he came to the hospital and shared a word and had prayer with her ✝️ He didn't know her, but God led him there as she needed him so badly. I thank God for this faithful servant that listened to his Father speak that night. Praying comfort for the family and church during this time May you find peace in the promise of our Savior that our friend will be waiting for us in Glory ✝️

So many memories with this family that I couldn't choose just one. Preacher Gwinn welcomed me into their home as another one of his "adopted" children over 20 years ago. He had a love for life, family and the Lord. He would tell me like it was if I needed to be set straight and would show me fatherly love when I couldn't lift myself. So thankful for the time I was able to share with the family from church to adventures and them giving me a life long best friend in Rachel. The cherry on top was that he married my husband and I. Rest in Peace Preacher, we will see you soon.

I met Pastor Gwinn while visiting my mother who was undergoing cancer treatment. She loved him and it showed. When visiting after her passing I still visited the the church and listened to him.

We've lived next door to Gigi for over 5 years. She has been the best neighbor and friend one could ask for. Gigi was hands down one of the sweetest, kindest, and most humble people I've ever met. We became such quick friends and she has been a huge part in our families milestones. She helped my husband plan his proposal for our engagement, was the first to know the gender of our daughter as the holder for our gender reveal party, always there for birthday parties, and just hanging out in the yard. Our dogs were all best buds and she always came to play with her "grand neighbor ". She was always so much fun, wonderful sense of humor, so smart, and never ever complained about a thing. We will miss her immensely and there will never be another friend or neighbor like her. She was so loved and I pray that she and her family can find peace in this difficult time. We miss you so much Gigi.

Mom was truly an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and mother-in-law. I am truly thankful for her welcoming me into her family by allowing me to take her daughter Jennifer’s (one of her pride and joys) hand in marriage. She has always been there in time of need to help Jen with our boys when I was gone to training, deployments, or exercises. I firmly believe she played an instrumental role in developing our boys into the fine young gentlemen they are now and am thankful for that. She was full of love and made all those that interacted with her feel loved. We will truly miss you and that beautiful smile of yours, but we know that you are now seated at the right side of the good Lord, watching over all of us. We love you with all of our hearts and can’t wait to join you in the heavens one day.

I am truly blessed that she was such an important part of my life and because of her I am who I am today. She told me she would be watching out for me and I know she will as she always did on earth as well! Till we meet again Leslie! I will forever love you!

I fell fortunate to be able to call Honeycutt my close family friend since 1982. Over the years, we've shared loves and losses, births and deaths, good times and bad. I saw him mature from that goofy kid, back in '82, to the good man, father, and husband, he became. I saw him grow strong in his faith. He made me want to be a better person. I'm still working on that! I will miss him terribly!! I want to send mine and Daves' love and condolences to Barrys' mother, he truly was special! To Wendy, to Dylan, Joshua, Caleb, Logan, Ryker, and all the extended family and friends that loved him. Rest in peace, my brother. I love you and I thank you for the love and friendship you gave me in return. Until I see you again.

I just found out about James after doing a search, I'm so sorry to hear of his passing, I worked with American Crane Corp. and would often go to his work area to talk to him about everything, I remember his good nature and wise advice, He was a GOOD man. I also remember him winning another fishing tournament in Wrightsville Beaches "King Mackerel Tournament" for catching the biggest one which I believe at the time was $50,000.00 (Of course he had to share this with his other boatmates but still he got recognition for the catch in the "Wilmington Star News". James I look forward to seeing you I Heaven and sharing in the glory of our Lord & Savior and hopefully fish with you. My condolences to all his family & friends; Sincerely; Gerry Hardin

Over the past twelve years working together, Suanne has colored my memories and taught me many things. From my first day working together I noticed several things about Suanne: how she was such a strong person inside, how she would always bring life to the workplace, how she was always fixing things, how she was always looking for ways to improve herself and work, and mostly how she would take the time to learn, care and support all of us through the ups and downs. She was driven by a 'can do' attitude and an innate desire to leave things better than she found them. We spent many hours discussing life and work, and she was never shy to offer her thoughts on how to solve challenges. Yet even when we differed on positions she always had a way of letting you know that it was OK we did not agree. Suanne, you do what friends do - you challenge us, support us, make us laugh, and ultimately teach us to become better. You truly blessed us all and left us better than you found us. My most heartfelt condolences to Scott and her family.

I met Barry in March 16 2014 actually at a mutual friends Memorial. From the minute I met him I knew he was a kind man and full of life. He was an old soul and loved God and he was a family man. Family first. My heart aches for Wendy because I know they loved each other very much. She was a lucky lady to have had him in her life. My heart goes out deeply to the family. I feel privileged to have had him as a great friend. Until we meet again my friend. You have gotten your wings way to young, but there's no doubt you are still here in spirit and will be looking over the ones you cared about. Love you and will never forget you.

I met Leslie in the Spring of 2006. We were in the same work program at the beginning of our clinical research careers. We shared a lot of laughs in and out of the office and she had the best sense of humor. After I moved to Texas and lived there for a few years – she said…. “Susan - you really need to come back home to North Carolina”. I’ll never forget that conversation and Leslie - I won’t ever forget you. You will be missed. Prayers for her family and friends.

I love you guys forever and always, and if there is anything I can possibly do to help please dont hesitate to call.

Looking forward to celebrating her life, as I know she would want us to. I’m so grateful for everything she taught me. Love to all.

Leslie’s heart and soul were truly one of a kind. I would not be the person I am today without her friendship. Knowing her changed my life forever. She was a gift to this world and now she will be my guiding light in the sky.

11 years wasn’t long enough to know her. She was beautiful and kind. Natural and spiritual. Light. Going forward, I will strive to #livelikeleslie. Love you Lunarbaybee.

It was a blessing to care for Leslie on 9300 at Duke and to learn that our families were neighbors. Praying for your family during this time.

Leslie was / is a truly magical spirit: loving, kind, beautiful and one of the brightest lights I have ever seen in my 74 years of life. I'm so glad she was born and that our paths crossed.

I’ve never met a more kind or gentle man. I’m so thankful I can call him friend. He was so loving to both of my boys. He is missed but I know we will see him again someday soon in glory. We love all of you so much.

My heart is sad, but rejoicing at the same time for the loss of this wonderful, Godly, Christian man. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with you Cheryl, Patti, Crystal, Bobby and all of his family. Mike has left a huge void, but God's love is so wonderful. Knowing we will see him again!

I only met Ed when I was a small child but I remember how much my Father, Belvin Howard, his uncle cared for him. I think at some point my Dad lived with his sister Undine and he and Ed were friends although my Dad was much older. I remember going to their farm when I was little. I would love to hear from your family and learn more about Aunt Undine, Ed’s Mom. I am very sorry for your loss. I am just finding out about his passing. God Bless you and your family.

What a beautiful and sweet soul heaven has gained. Will never forget how we both lit up when we saw each other during treatment and how we sat and talked about the good old days at Acme-Delco. You will truly be missed.

We were so sorry to hear of Ben's passing. He was such an wonderful person. He always was there is you needed him. He was such a fabulous person when Wes was diagnosed with Cancer. We will truly miss him. The famliy will be in our thoughts and prayers. May Jehovah wrap you all up in his arms and give you the comfort you need at this time (1 Peter 5:10). Soon Ben will wake up and not have any health issues (Isaiah 33:24) (Acts 24:15) Love, Wesley, Jo Lynn and Fran Quick

Fran was the kindest neighbor and friend I have ever had. Who could forget her beautiful blue eyes that lit up when she laughed? We shared so much on our long walks together even up to our last visit in North Carolina. She was a true friend and I will miss her deeply. Kevin, Erin and Cara, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I pray that Jesus will comfort you with the peace that passes all understanding.
