Dear Kathy, Jane and Phil, I extend my sincere condolences to you at the loss of your mother Allene. She was a most remarkable person, of whom I had the great pleasure of meeting and spending time with respect to my own mum. I remember as a young boy, how my mum, Pat, would eagerly await aerograms, not emails from her sister Allene in the States. How they shared much of their lives not only at a distance but also in time. This would send Pat to writing as much as she could onto that one sheet of paper, and with the anticipation of receiving the next missive from your mum. When my mum was experiencing an upheaval in her life, Allene made the time to fly half way around the world to help rescue her. As a result we all got to meet the aunty of the aerograms. Indeed how both your mum and our other aunty, Norma made such an effort to rescue their sister. When I came to visit you in 2000, I was most uncertain of what was to follow, but I am ever so grateful that these sisters met up, and that Allene had the change to rekindle her Australian roots. Best wishes cousins and fond memories to your mum Allene. Your cousin Bill

 

William J Sims posted on 6/18/21

Dear cousins, most sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. Allene was a most remarkable woman and I am ever so glad she and my mum, Pat had the opportunity to meet up for one last time. So all the the best to you as you reflect upon her memories. Maybe so me day we may get the opportunity to catch up and have a yarn. Your cousin Bill

 

William J Sims posted on 6/18/21

Dear Kathy, Jane, and Phil, my most sincere and heart felt condolences to you on the passing of your mum. Parted but certainly not lost to you all, as no doubt you will be recounting her to your memories. I always recall when I was a little kid, how my mum, Pat, used to to wait for the aerograms and mail from her sister Allene. How over the years they kept up that corespondence. How when my mum was going through a paticularly bad patch in her life, Allene came out to Brisbane to give her much needed support to regain her sense of well being. Her she joined forces with her other sister Norma, as they set about helping her. No doubt in their long lives, three will not always get along, this was one of those truly beautiful times when they do! When I came to Wilmington in 2000, the schism that was between our two mothers was central to my thoughts. I am ever so glad that they had the opportunity to meet up once again and put it all into a perspective. Ah the tyrany of distance can be a real bugger sometimes, but overcoming it is a treasure. So I wish you all the very best of memories as you trove through the treasure of Allene's long journey through life. Always remember cousins, one part mum, one part dad, and one part yourselves, but only by knowing them do you know who you are in the grand scheme. Best wishes your cousin Bill

We will miss our dear neighbor, Paul, his warm smile and his kind nature. Enjoyed our rides together to Cape Fear Mens Club Meetings.

 

Lambeth Marshall posted on 6/17/21

I lived above Tom in an apartment 47 years ago when we both were single. We were best friends trying to keep each other out of trouble if you know what I mean. He was with us when we first got married and we were with Tom and Pam at their wedding. What a wonderful couple friendship we have had together for 47 years. He was quite a character with the biggest heart ever. We will miss him so much but now he is not suffering any more. Wonder what he is telling God about how to run heaven in a better way. Love to all the family. Lambeth and John

Bill was certainly an interesting man. We did not know him well as he was such a private person. The fact that he hiked the Appalachian Trail in his later life was amazing. Even though he was a cousin, our paths did often cross. Our condolences go out to his son, Billy, at this time. Sandra & Derald Hagen

Dear Pam, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Tom. I want to thank Tom and you for enriching our lives with your friendship.

Wishing you peace with your memories of your lives together.

My other mother, affectionately known as Mom II. Many nights I was the extra person at her table. She introduced me to pepperoni rolls (no one makes them like she did) and eating the leftover dough because we couldn’t have the cookies til Christmas. I have never met anyone else who started baking in October for Christmas. I have more stories than this box will allow me to share. The best story of all is the love and kindness she always showed, especially to the little girl next-door. You will be missed. Love you!

I graduated with Brenda from Henry County High School in 1968. About 26 years ago she called me because she was taking a trip to California and she had some questions since I used to live there. I told her to please call me when she got back but I never heard from her again. So sorry to hear this. My condolences to her family at this time. I specifically remember how smart Brenda was. And she was a very nice person

Lynn was always such a hard worker! I remember that she was a manager at the Circle K near my house and one day I went in to the store and everything was a wreck. Well, I found out Lynn was no longer working there and things fell apart immediately without her and the work ethic so few seem to have now. Lynn will be greatly missed in this earthly world but heaven is now blessed with her presence.

Stephanie Moore posted on 6/9/21

Karla and I shared a daily “arrival at the same time to work” relationship. I did not know her on a personal level but we were on the same morning schedule. We shared the walk from the Scottish Rite Temple to NHCDHHS many mornings. She spoke to me as if she knew me each time. I appreciated that and thought she was so cute in her ways. There were days where we shared an umbrella waiting on that stop light and laughed about life matters. I am saddened to learn of her passing and praying fervently for her family. A light she definitely was; rest in perfect peace Karla.

I Remember the times her mom invited my daughter Kim to her birthday parties and how they had fun.She will truly be missed I'm sure. I extend my sincerest sympathy to her family and my prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.

We have many fond memories of time at the senior center with Ms. Dee. She and Reggie made it a special place for the community to gather and she was always the greeter to all. Reflections include gathering for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at the center and the days spent having lunch with the senior gang. She always made us feel important. She cared for her community and especially the seniors. Rest in peace Ms. Dee and our love and prayers to Reggie, Margaret and her sons and the rest of the family.

Herbert and I are deeply saddened by Tina's passing. Tina has a special place in our hearts because of the love she showed to our two grandsons. They truly loved her and often told me of the good things she did for them. It was a delight to be in her presences. Enjoy the payoff for you hard labor.

Lake Junaluska, Nantahala, Morehead, Wilmington, Wrightsville, Jasper and homes are only a few of the places you left some of your heart. Will miss the calls, "Can we talk ?". I know you are with family and Him. Love you C

I am a first cousin once removed on his mother’s side and knew him as a little kid in Joplin, MO. In our later years we renewed contact by email and text and sometimes by phone calls. In fact just a couple of weeks before his passing, he called and we had a nice talk. So it was a shock to hear of his passing. He was my last living relative on my father’s side. May God bless you all.

Rudy, Jimmy, Anne Marie and all caring relatives and friends who shared in Doris' life: It was with great sorrow that I learned about her demise. No doubt, my loss pales in comparison to yours. Doris had a way of magnetizing you into her circle of love and that circle never broke throughout the years when time and distance would drift us apart. Upon reconnecting with her the last few years of her life I realized that the bond was still strong as ever. I will always remember her for this. Now, my prayer for you is that her love sends you peace and comfort throughout your life. Sending you love and comforting hugs...Elena.

Buddy was such a special man! So kind and willing to help. He helped Bill (Sue) so much in driving Sonny (our yard maintenance employee) to doctor's appointments and procedures. Bill had 5 rows in the garden plowed because Buddy wanted to plant a garden. Although the drought destroyed the initial planting, Buddy was ready to start over. To us, he was a quiet man, yet very forthcoming with his spirit of care and joy in helping friends! The shock of his passing was quite overwhelming, yet followed by the peace and comfort that there is an eternity to be spent with Buddy, never to be separated again. To God be the Glory.

My Dear Aunt Doris remained positive, active, bright, and alert right up to her final days. When I would talk to her on the phone from Florida, although I'm sure she was in a lot of pain, she seemed to be enjoying every minute of the conversation. I wish we lived closer so that we could share more intimately in the celebration of Aunt Doris' Life and to be of comfort to Rudy, Jimmy and Anne. I'm sure her beloved dog Jenny misses her terribly as we all do. We rejoice however in knowing that she is now in the hands of our loving Savior, and in the presence of all her loved ones who have gone before her.

Bruce & Dottie, Steve & Ryan: I have no words to express how saddened I was to hear of the passing of your dear son and brother. Knowing Bruce as a young kid, I always felt and understood his sweet nature and love of the outdoors. My faith tells me that this young soul is resting in the full and complete love of Jesus ..... with all the answers to the questions we all have. I loved Bruce's decency and simple care he showed to me & my family and how he made me feel welcome in any time he spent with an "old guy". Bless him for that! I sure don't know how anyone could have a bad word about this man, who will always be in my memory as a "nice young guy". What other legacy would anyone want to leave behind..... other than his memory of kindness and care that ranks so much higher above those of money & power & prestige. I believe Bruce is living what we all hope & pray to have.... waiting for all those he loves still in our earthly vessels. And, I can only imagine how beautiful Bruce will look like, the NEXT TIME we all see him. My prayers and good thoughts and love are the only gifts I can give to his parents and brothers. I am very sad and hurt for them..... and, yet, I try and picture my old/young pal in the arms of the God of his understanding. Rest in peace, Bruce..... I love you. Vince Mulhall

When we moved into Waterford (knowing very few people) Doris and Rudy invited us and another couple to their home for dinner, and we became fast friends. Whenever we walk past their home (almost daily) we stop to chat and catch up. Doris always remembered what we shared and would ask about our families. Her recall and sense of humor were amazing! We (as well as our daughter, grandson and dog) will miss her terribly. Rest In Peace, Doris!

How do you say goodbye to the best father a son could ever have.. The person who held my hand when I needed it,, The person who supported and guided me through life.. We laughed together and we cried together... You were always my role model.. You were my best friend.. This hole in my heart will never heal, but I hope that you'll find peace in the arms of your beloved once again.. I will love and miss you forever.

Dear Brian and Nancy We are so sorry for the passing of your dear father Norman. He was so lucky to have the two of you these past five years and we’re sure his quality of life was better for it. We have such fond memories of our last visit with him and your mom in Tewksbury. We laughed the whole time we were there! We always enjoyed the conversations and loved how he always made everyone feel so welcome. God bless you all! Peter & Martha

So many fond memories of gatherings with family and friends at his home. AC never met a stranger and all who met him, loved him. His wit was so natural, and as you laughed, hysterically, he would just crack a grin. We loved AC and his family, he will forever be a fond memory in our hearts and will surely be missed by all who knew him. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

AC was an awesome neighbor! He watched all the comings and goings from his front porch. He was always the first in the neighborhood to decorate for Christmas, getting everyone else in the spirit. I can't imagine driving by his house without seeing him on the front porch. Rest in peace dear friend. Respectfully, Linda and Lee Garris

I can count on one hand the amount of times I would come home (I lived across the street from AC) that he was not surrounded by his beloved family on that front porch. On the rare occasion he was alone I would often go over and have a chat. AC was such a laid back guy and so easy to talk to it felt natural from the first time I met him. I was not in the best place when I was living there, so my only regret is not spending more time chatting with him. AC and family always made me feel welcome and we’re the epitome of what a good neighbor is. He was a wonderful man and my family thinks the world of him. My heart and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Bruce you were the big brother to all of us. Ripping the surf on your FD quad way ahead of your time. Picking us up in the van and taking us up coast surfing or just hanging around. Playing drums to the stereo on the steering wheel! So many classic keys fishing trips to the bridges and camping out. My friend you are truly one of a kind and memories of you and your laughter will never be forgotten. Rest easy until we meet again.

Oh how I loved to hang with Bruce. He always gave me a hard time at ECU and every time he came to a VB tournament, but I loved every second of it. ALWAYS a great time. One of my memories of the South Florida Campbell boys with their mullets was Bruce busting out Metallica on his drums and I was amazed at how good he was. I had never seen someone play drums like that. We will miss you brother. May God have your golden drums awaiting.

Sandra DeLuca was an amazing Christian woman. I was just thinking about her recently in regards to her faithful years of serving the Lord at Northside. We started attending there in 1995 and she was busy then...teaching the little ones and then started serving in our AWANA program. No matter what was going on in her life, she was faithful to serve. Thank you, Sandra, for demonstrating Gods love for us through your love for Him.

I am very saddened to read of Mrs. Dominguez passing. I remember her very well. I have great respect and admiration for her. She could be a tough mom at times, but I always saw the love in her eyes. I love the way her eyes sparkled when she talked about her children, yes even Alfred, and Mr.Dominguez. She loved her family and it showed. She was always kind and generous to me. The last time I saw her I asked her to make me some sauce. She made great sauce. She smiled and said, "ok". I will keep that memory. I can't think of the right words, but I have memories from the last 50 years to hold me. My condolences to the family and friends. Love, Patty xoxoxo

My wife and I so sorry to here about Jon passing. Due too work conflicts I was not able to make the memorial. I work with Jon at Annabelle's for 8 plus years and he was my roommate for several years. My fond memories of Jon is working on a Friday or Saturday night at Annabelle's with Miles Davidson at the helm leading the team thru the waves of orders to turn out some of the best food in Wilmington. At Christmas time Jon headed up most time getting that huge Christmas tree into the building and getting it place just right. For Christmas and Halloween the wait staff and always Jon and myself both help with the decorating. A beer or 2 always made the decorating a little more fun. Jon was beach music guy who would make the annual Emerald Isle beach music festival .His smile when he was happy and the quick blast of vocabulary when he was mad would most time make me laugh at him. I will always have these fond memories of him and us setting up late and just talking at the house. For the Lindquist family we are sorry for your loss of Jon. For Windy Batten we are especially are heartbroken for your loss of Jon, because we know the love you had for him never wavier. The things we regret was not staying in touch.

Shock lived across the street from me when I was a child in Naperville, Illinois. As an older boy in the neighborhood he was really cool to me. He allowed me to hang out, listen to music while he worked on his Camaro. It seemed that he was always doing something with his Camaro and trying to fix the timing. I was recalling how nice he was to me and decided to look him up. As you can imagine it is upsetting that Chuck passed away. My condolences to the family he leaves behind. He certainly had an impact on my life because he was a very good guy who allowed the younger kid across the street to listen to his music, talk to him, and basically be a nuisance. Thinking of Chuck makes me smile because he was the first older teenager in the neighborhood who treated me like a peer - not as a "kid" - when, in fact, I was a kid to most... I am saddened by his loss.

So very sorry to learn of Susan's passing. I go way back with the Gore family. Candace was one of my closest friends, and since we all lived on Arlington Drive, we all knew each other. In spite of all the challenges she faced she always had a smile on her face. The last time I saw her she was healthy enough to be outside. We ran into each other at the shopping center in Wrightsboro. She was always genuinely happy to see a friend, and I'll always remember her in that way. Johnny, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Craig and family. This is Carole Biddick, George's first cousin in WI. I can't begin to tell you how truly sad I was and still am, to read of George's passing. Can hardly believe it. I am wondering when his service will be, because if at all possible I will fly out for it. Our only granddaughter is graduating Memorial Day week-end, so I have to be in WI for those days. I just called the funeral home in Pasadena and as of right now they don't know either. I always told George that he had to come out here for my memorial service to cheer everybody up. I made it plan to my husband that he was to send George the money for a ticket so he would be there for sure. He was so good at that!!! Southwest Airlines has a good amount of flights into BWI so hopefully it will work out for me to be able to be there. Unfortunately I don't have George's personality, so I won't be cheering anyone up, but I did love him especially cause he loved my mother (Dolly) in FL so much and he was so kind and thoughtful of me with my lung cancer diagnosis last year. So far I am doing good. Praise God. All my love and sympathy, Carole Lee

I worked for Paul back in the 70s and 80s at his firm Tapecaster TCM. It was one of the most enjoyable jobs I ever had. Paul was a great man to work for. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I did get to talk to him a few times last year and enjoyed the conversations. I will miss those phone calls. God Speed Paul.

One more hug would be nice. I hope the good lord met you at the pearly gates and took you to see your mom. What a joyous reunion I bet it was. You were a great person even though you did not like Nancy Pelosi but more importantly left a loving family and legacy to carry on in your honor. Your suffering is over and the whole family will look after Johnny, Mandy, Lindsey, and your grandchildren. RIP, god speed and go rest high on that mountain.

I am so very sorry to hear about Scott. My name is Deborah Derkack and Scott and I were good friends growing up on Pleasant Valley Road in Old Bridge ,N.J. Besides living on Pvr we went to High School together,Cedar Ridge. I moved there in 1974 and became friends with Scott. He made everyday special in some unique way. Wether he’d be getting on the bus to school or lunch time in the cafeteria he owned the radio and would change the channel tuning in his favorite songs, while singing on top the table playing his imaginary Fender guitar. The crowd (kids)would go wild cheering him on, teachers too. He was always Happy,polite,and always made everyday interesting. We shared a lot of concerts,Queen was the Best. Walked a lot of miles together on Pvr until we got dirt bikes. Also had kinda our own baseball field (Quackenbush) and ice skating pond where we skated in the winter. I could go on and on thinking back of all the great times Scott and I shared. He was so Full of Life and made everyday special. I’m so sorry for your Loss. Your all in my Thoughts and Prayers.

I had the pleasure of meeting Grant and his beautiful family at the dentist office. Following his initial appointment, we had a long conversation about Scotts Hill (as I grew up there), Topsail High School (we shared a few of the same teachers) and hunting. I wanted to book a flight to Idaho by the end of our conversation. I was so struck by his great manners, intellect and maturity that I sent his mom a text before he could leave the office. Our days are concluded by a huddle and the opportunity to individually speak about something great that happened that day. I excitedly announced "Meeting Grant!" Not surprisingly, my doctor chimed in exclaiming "Hey, that was mine!" Subsequent visits were just as enjoyable. We will miss his beautiful smile, charisma and kindness. He now has an aerial view of his favorite hunting spots and can see those big bucks back in Boise. Continued prayers to each of you during this difficult time.

Kaete, I still can’t believe I’ll never see your beautiful face again. I think you were 5, when I first met you. You were perched on the doorknob of your bedroom door, swinging back and forth! At that moment, I just knew we had to be friends. Over 60 years, from crabbing, surfing, camping on the Cape and Martha’s Vineyard, to dancing on the bar at Jimmy Byrns, we surely have made some great memories. I will never forget growing up together and sharing our hopes and dreams. Our friendship stood the test of time. Please save a seat for me up there so we can enjoy a bucket of steamers together. Until we meet again my friend. Love you so much. ❤️

It is next to impossible for me to sum up my fathers life in just a few paragraphs... He blessed this earth and each life he touched for 93 years..... his legacy will live on with each and everyone of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren he leaves behind. A friend asked me “ What kind of father was your Dad?” He was a very gentle, kind and compassionate father.... ALWAYS funny... always making us laugh.. He never talked negatively about anyone... He had a strong faith in God (his faith helped to lead me in my spiritual walk...for which I am eternally grateful). I was blessed these past few years to be able to spend time with him.... getting to know him better... (He and I were like “buds”...always looking forward to going out to eat for breakfast...then lunch...then dinner!! That was the highlight of his day!) I always knew (in my heart) that my time with him was limited so, I cherished each moment I had to spend with him.... even up until the last breath he took on this earth.... I was blessed to be with him and pray with him as he made his transition from death ... to life eternally.... he has a new body....no more pain... Yes, Dad...I will see you one day again... We have a void in our lives without his presence with us....but, we also hold onto the promise of God that we will one day be united with him in heaven... Praise God!!!!!

Andy always wore his smile true, no matter what he was fighting through. He was a deeply caring person who went out of his way to be there for others. He helped me immensely and I have learned so much from Andy. He was the best boss I ever had, and he was also a great friend. His spirit lives on within all of those he has inspired and touched in his beautiful life.

Dearest Aunt Carmen, Melissa, & Family - My heart is breaking at your loss. I offer my deepest condolences and sympathy at this most difficult time. I already miss Uncle Terry. I feel like we had just been getting to know one another. Uncle Terry was so good to me and my mother, his sister Sharon, before and after her death. He made it a point to drive all the way up from North Carolina to Buffalo to see both my mother and myself, to make sure everything was OK. He was just so sweet and gentle and kind. My best memory is of him at this time. He was such a joy because he put himself out just to make sure that both of us were doing alright just then and were going to be doing fine for future arrangements. Uncle Terry took care of my Mom's life insurance for me too because it would have been too much of a financial hassle for me to do it. He was such a gem - a diamond quietly sparkling and giving off radiant pure light. I love him so very much. We use to talk about out animals also and he would tell me all about "Barky," and I would tell him all about CoCo my little cat. He would listen patiently to me go on and on about her. He loved animals so much. I sent you a card Uncle Terry, but I am afraid that it is probably too late for you to receive it. I hope in some way it can be with you. Remember that you are loved Uncle Terry - by many people. You were a very special man. You will be forever in my heart. I am glad that you are with Gram and Mom and everyone now. They had missed you too. Be happy. Be at Peace.

Dusty took life in stride and had a knack for staying calm in almost any situation and lived life as it was handed to him with few exceptions. One exception was his hatred for new cars with big grills. They frustrated him to no end and he expressed his distaste for them every time we went driving. One time he and I were driving up to Home Depot together and he was uncharacteristically going into a rant about the new fronts of vehicles. When I purposely parked across from one in the parking lot and looked at him, we burst out laughing and kept laughing walking through the store. I spoke with Dusty daily for the many years he lived across the street. Every Friday, the four of us would go out for lunch and we made a point of scheduling other activities or appointments to make every effort to keep our lunch time together. The photo we attached here was of Dusty and Betty on our way back from one of our lunches on the beach. We kidded him about his belly showing in the photo because we had just finished lunch. Betty would never eat very much and most of the time, she wanted just a few bites but Dusty would always talk her into her own platter of haddock and fries and he would invariably end up eating half her fish and all her fry’s every time! lol When we called him on it, he would just shrug his shoulders and smile. Typical Norman. He got along with everyone and was the charmer of the group. He was a great guy. Always liked by all and loved by many of us that were close to him and Betty. Rita and I miss them both a lot.

Carmen, Melissa and your family, I want to express my condolences. I know you will miss Terry deeply. My heart is breaking at this loss. I can’t believe that Terry and I will never talk again in this life. Terry has gone to be with six of his siblings who went to heaven before him. I also know being the last one of this Constable family that they will all welcome me with open arms as they just did with Terry. I love you Terry (SEND MONEY). Terry was a great patriot as his military record demonstrates and wonderful brother. Terry did his things in his quite way, when his sisters were sick or needed him, he would shuffle off to Buffalo to see and comfort them. I am very thankful to have had the honor of having Terry for a brother. My memories of you are the best kind of memories....the ones that take me back from childhood to now. I am so blessed to have grown up together in Buffalo, where all the magic happened. We hung out together and dated the same beautiful young ladies. I will miss him on earth, but I know I will see him again in heaven. Peace be with you my brother.

I knew Grant when he was a fourth grade student in my class in Boise. He greeted each day with a smile and made our classroom a better place. Every new school year on the first day of school, I share a writing assignment that Grant wrote many years ago when he was in my class called “How to Survive Miss Miller’s Class”. I asked students to make me sound as mean as possible and Grant said it was the hardest assignment all year for him because he didn’t like being mean to people or speaking unkindly. Although I only knew him for a year, he greatly impacted my life and my teaching career. I knew I could always count on him to cheer for my brother and the Broncos! Sending so many prayers to your family. Miss (Lauren) Miller St. Mark’s School

Aunt Kathy Ann, Where to begin; First, I am so grateful you and I had the chance to develop a close relationship over the past few years. I loved talking to you and getting advice or tips on things only you could help with. I am blessed and thankful that you got to know my daughter and know her well. She loved you very much and looked forward to your surprise homemade gifts. She also enjoyed doing crafts with you and just having a nice conversation with you. We both looked forward to spending time with you and Alan and we are so glad we had this entire past winter together. We grieved together the loss of my father, your brother, never imagining this would happen. I am so sorry, but at the same time, I am immensely happy that you are at peace. I love you and appreciated you and your thoughtfulness more than you could have ever known. I was honestly thinking of gifting you and Alan with a dog like Lollie since you fell so in love with her. She will miss you also! We will continue on with Alan and have wonderful times together forever bc it is 100% what you would have wanted. Tell my dad hello from us and I'm glad you are there to keep him company. Love Always, Colleen, Bee, Lollie

My memory of the George begins around age 14 when the family of George and Mary Hepbron lived on Lincoln Avenue in Hightstown where many of my school friends lived and played and swam in the Millstone River a stone throw from the Hepbron home where George and Mary raised a large family of six girls, all as close as a year apart, one just as beautiful as the next. My first one on one conversation with George was when I was sent to the principal’s office for scrapping on school property, I was terrified as I opened the door to his office knowing the consequences would mean suspension but oddly the meeting left me with the impression of a kind and gentle man dishing out my penalty only to face a different tone of justice at home by my dad. Fast forward from 1962 to 1969 when George and Mary’s #3 daughter Debby (16) and I (20) locked eyes and hearts at first site on Main Street Hightstown now I’m spending days and dinners with George and family at their Dover Lane home in East Windsor, NJ my favorite was Mary’s pot roast where their pooch Eunice began sacrificing the left overs with a competitor. The years and careers flew by for all of us unfortunately throwing a curve ball that struck at the heart of George and Mary’s union of many years yet neither never skipped a beat at being a dedicated, loving and caring parents though not together. George and I shared countless times together for example trips to Canada, Lake George, Florida Keys, and days at the track having a beer and hot dog or Atlantic City enjoying comps of great steaks and lobster tails. George was my go-to guy when going through my own difficulties as a young man growing up and finding my way as a new dad and trying to be the best I could be. Our conversations, and by his example, gave guidance to who I am today as I looked up to him as a model of near perfection. Fast forward 1982 in the middle of a law enforcement career and ending a twelve-year military obligations Deb and I had the first of our two girls Jamie and Jenny both joining the ranks of the Hepbron grandchildren that blossomed over the years to a herd of great grandchildren where George dedicated his life to nurturing in so many ways many whom I suspect will share their own special relationship with George in their memorials. George and Helen did a wonderful job carrying on the traditions the family grew accustomed to especially during the holidays and family reunions that took place. One most notable reunion given as a farewell gift to all the family was that by our dear Aunt Adele Hepbron, sister to George’s father, who brought us all together one last time at Silver Bay Lake George N.Y. Adele was loved and adored by all who knew her it must be a family trait since George exemplifies everything beautiful in Adele who was adored and loved by so many. It’s difficult to pay homage to someone you’ve known for nearly 50 years in a few short paragraphs and in a memorial to a man whose personality and wonderful character was so large. I can only say “I hope to have done you proud as I tried to be half the man you were.” Goodbye George you will be missed beyond words as you leave a void in so many hearts, we know you are in a better place and one day we will all meet again in spirit maybe even at our beloved Silver Bay Lake George.

Upon searching for friends I hoped to see at my 50th high school reunion, I just learned of Jim's passing. On today, my 68th birthday, I want to honor the kind of young man I recall - mainly from 1967 - 72. I met Jim and Joe Zelibor Jr. walking home from football practice in 1967 to our subdivision in Fairfax - Mosbey Woods. Jim, Joe and I were on the Oakton football team until 1969, and Jim replaced me on the team at Tackle when I left the team. Jim left soon thereafter in a team drinking scandal, but we'll skip over that. Jim, Joe Zelibor and I hung out, and frequently slept over, at my house so many weekends during and after high school we heard there was a rumor was that we were gay. What we were actually doing was playing cards, throwing frisbees in the street, and talking about girls, and listening to rock; too frequently lubricated. The Summer of 1971(?) after Jim and I were fired at a job he hooked me up with as laborers at a K-Mart in Fairfax, Jim Joe and I became a 3-man sheetrock crew in apartments getting paid 25 cents per 4'x12' sheet - it was hot, dirty and exhausting work which I survived thanks to Jim; the strongest among us, and his yellow Ford Fairlane. It was at that job where Jim decided to quit GW and work construction with a crew I believe he worked with for years, probably before he moved to North Carolina. Joe (deceased too from a motorcycle accident) went off to college after Oakton, so from 69-72 (after which I left for college in Washington State) Jim and I shared many two-man adventures - Jim in his top hat and long hair partying in Georgetown, a wild weekend with Jim's brother and sister-in-law at a retreat/former monastery outside Boone NC, several rock concerts, a hot Summer afternoon throwing frisbees on the Shenandoah River, romances and breakups. Jim and I helped his brother Joe pack his car as Joe left for Woodstock. Jim and I once whistled catcalls, from up in a street tree, to GW college girls outside a DC bar - one of many memories the two of us created but which, by 1987, Jim had lost. I'm grateful to Joe Zelibor for staying constant as Jim's friend, but I'm sure Joe's death was a major blow to Jim as it was to me. I visited Fairfax in 1987 unexpectedly and the three of us we got to hang out, but it was apparent that Jim's treatments had robbed him of all our old memories, and I've grieved ever since for losing the Jim I knew and loved, while hoping he found peace with his family once he moved to NC. Jim's lovely mom and I had a fantastic chat that long Friday afternoon in 1987 when we waited for Jim to get home from work and meet Joe for dinner as they did every Friday night. I stayed with Jim and his girlfriend that weekend and we had a lovely time together - the last time I saw or spoke with Jim. I tried to stay in touch with Jim, but once Joe Zelibor was killed, my link with Jim was lost and I couldn't find him among the NC James McCarthy's. I am glad to hear that he got his BA from GW, as that must have meant a lot to all of his family and to Jim. in the hope Jim too planned to attend his 50th high school reunion, my alumni search this morning for "Jim McCarthy, Oakton" popped Jim's obituary. I hate to end this ramble, because I hate to say goodby to Jim again. He was a gentle, loyal and cherished friend who will always be loved, and is therefore deeply missed, by all who knew him as I did. I hope he died in peace. Any feedback from friends or family would be welcome. Love you, man. You'll always be in my heart. Craig "Chip" Ward 9714044858

I am still having a very difficult time with loosing my father I was certain he was going to pull thru this....he has always been a strong willed person! Full of life and always joking around. Being raised in a family of six girls (no boys) was a priceless experience that I will always cherish. Having my dad as my principal was a challenge for me yet a special memory as well❤️ I imagine it was the same for my dad..I have so many happy memories of growing up with my dad....camping trips...Drive In Movies..Halloween parades...summers in Silver Bay, Lake George with my Aunt Adele.. our Volkswagen Van...trips to my grandparents house in Connecticut..but as life takes each of us on different journeys it did for George as well... Helen now had the task of keeping the family gatherings together. She and George did a wonderful job and we continued to have our sisters reunion every summer..keeping the special bond that’s sisters have with each other Dad I miss you terribly and still cry when I realize you are gone I am happy you lived a long happy life that you can be proud of just as I am to be your daughter ‘‘Goodbye and Godbless’’ Until we meet again.... love you Forever Debby Hepbron Rawdanowicz

George – was the grandfather who believed in imaginary pets (when our dog passed away when I was younger), he let the grandkids “style” his hair, he let me map the course for a 3 hour road trip across eastern North Carolina (I was under 10 years old)….we may have taken the back roads and a lot longer than needed, but that was George - full of love, life and laughter. For George family was always a priority and him and Helen opened their home to organize family holidays, summers for the grandkids, or organized family and sister reunions. George touched so many people in his life in such a positive way.

Nancy was, is and always will be my “big sister” even though I out-distanced her by height by several inches, which I didn’t let her forget! A younger sister needs one or two perks. I have so many fun and funny memories of Nancy from our younger years, including my dad fishing us out of the Chattahoochee River just before sunset after Nancy talked my mom into letting us do a late afternoon “tubing” float through a north-metro-Atlanta section of the river. Not the best idea she ever had, but it was an adventure. After so many challenges later in her life, I have come to appreciate the saying “rest in peace.” Nancy, I hope you do truly rest in peace. And for her beautiful daughters, may Nancy’s memory always be a blessing to each of you. I remember Nancy telling me, after my first daughter was born, that life, when you’re a mom, does not get easier, but it gets better. I hope, Megan and Lisa and Kim, that you can take her words to heart. Your mom would want to know that you are living your best lives and continuing to be the wonderful sisters that you are to each other. We will all miss her, but we can let go of the sad, over time, and embrace the best of the Nancy we were blessed to have in our lives. Thinking of you all on today’s Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. Love to all, Aunt Jan

Terry's last two years at Iowa State were my first two. We shared those two years at the Phi Delt house at Iowa State where Terry served us all well as the house manager and head fixer of broken or unworking things for a time. I will always remember Terry's open friendly kindness and willingness to help others when they needed it. He was one of the best examples of the kind of person we should all try to be.

I will always remember my Grandpa George for being a fun loving man, full of life, ready to enjoy every single moment. I can not picture any memory or moment with him where there was not a big smile on his face and love pouring out of his heart. He was always so full of joy, laughter, love and life. George made Christmas so special as a kid with all of the cousins. George would always find fun activities for all of us grandchildren to do and he made sure to show love and attention to each and every one of us too (17 cousins)! That’s a lot of love to give and George was the perfect man for the job. I am grateful for the recent memories I have had with him over the past few years, as well as the bond he had with my father John and the influence he had upon his life too. He loved his 6 beautiful daughters so very much and taught me so much through his heartfelt dedication. It is no surprise that each of his daughters (my Mother Debby and my five wonderful aunts) are just a wonderful and loving as their father was too. His legacy lives on in the lives of his 6 beautiful daughters and all of their families as well. We are so very blessed for George’s roots and influence in and on our family tree. His girls are a direct representation of who he was, I am blessed to have 5 aunts and a wonderful mother who embody the best pieces of George too, including his great big heart! It is so comforting to me knowing that his girls were the ones there with him by his side day and night comforting him, and lifting him up in love right up until the very end. Loyalty and love runs deep in the Hepbron family and it all stems back to George. Forever grateful for the blessing of his earthly spirit, and now forever grateful for the blessing of his Heavenly spirit too. I love you George. Until we meet again, in Heaven..

I first met Terry when I was working in Egypt and Terry would pass through Cairo on business. Because he was such a warm and genuine person, I immediately felt I had known him forever. I feel so fortunate that Terry has been my friend for all these years. I will miss him.

 

Tom McGiverin posted on 5/8/21

I always admired Terry for living a fuller and more adventurous life than anyone else I have known personally. He lived life on his terms, saw the world, and made the most of his lifetime, including giving to others. There is so much in this obituary about him that I never knew before, probably because he was too modest and humble to share all or most of it. I will also add that I was always impressed with his loyalty and devotion to his father Paul and his family in general. I will always remember him, as I also do his parents Paul and Margie.

If anyone has any pictures of George or would like to record a voice recording of a fond memory with him, im putting a special video Collage together for him. Please feel free to send anything - pictures, memories, videos, to me at [email protected] My Grandfather, my friend... GEORGEY PORGEY... the youngest 93 year old to ever walk this earth. You taught us all how to enjoy life. You were my best Golfing Buddy, the reason I play (and you always beat me even in your late 80’s... hitting the ball straight down the fairway every time) And That was George... just like his Consistent Golf game, he was consistent in life. You always got the same George. George was the definition of FUN. I’ve never seen George mad or sad... George never dwelled on the negative, he just lived and lived well and when he walked in a room, the room got brighter. You have 12 grandchildren and 19 grandkids who all saw you as a Celebrity - who all loved your company. You can’t say that about a lot of 90 year olds. George could make you smile just by looking at you... there’s more I can and will say one day... But George I think about you Everytime I’m on a Golf Course. Your legacy will live on forever in your 6 strong daughters and their families. I think we’re all just so happy we got to call you our dad, Grandfather, and friend. And I hope there’s 1 day old black Coffee for you in Heaven - LoL - I’ll never forget how you always drank a coffee that had been been roasting in a 90 degree car overnight. Just one of a thousand funny memories I have of my very special Grandfather We love you ‍♂️

Jake's name was something I heard daily in my house if it was him over spending time with Gus or Gus yelling at him thru a headset gaming. When Gus was struggling with a few issues in California I would call Jake and ask him to rally the boys and help Gus stay on course and he would! He was Gus's bestfriend! Gus sent me a quote last night he said Jake lived by this all the time "those who break the rules are scum, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum!"

I remember how much he loved cars and that was something we had in common. I remember playing Forza with him on the Xbox and talking about cars while we played. I remember going over to his house one time and looking at his set up for racing games and how he had the Ferrari steering wheel and stick shift. I was a little jealous of the set up because of how cool it was. After I moved away for school I didn't play as much Xbox with him and looking back, you never really know or understand how precious a friendship with someone is until they're gone. My heart goes to you, Mr. and Mrs. Mclaughlin and your daughter. I am praying for y'all and pray that God will strengthen and comfort you in this time of hurt and pray that He will show you His plan in all of this.

My sincere condolences on the passing of Allene just want you to know that I am thinking of you all and sending lots of love and strength your way. I have such fond memories of our stay in North Carolina (hard to believe it was more than 30 years ago) seems like yesterday...to this day I still remember with great fondness the beach house you organised, morning coffees, sailing boats and staying with Allene in her house and being treated like royalty...and then also when Allene visited us in Australia. I was only just talking with Kay last week about her trip to America when she met up with Allene a couple of years ago and how well Allene was doing still living an independent life. Rest In Peace Allene...a life well lived.

I am so sad to hear of Andy’s death. I didn’t know Andy that well but what I knew of him made him someone important to me- he made his husband happy and added immensely to Jeff’s life even as Jeff added to Andy’s. Because Jeff is a long time college friend, Andy became a friend as well. On the occasions I met Andy and got to know him over time, I was struck by his passion for friends and good meals and travel and airplanes and days on the water and political debates- struck, in short, by his passion for life. I also learned that Andy had little time or patience for foolishness, bigotry, or idiocy. Both ways of living are vehicles for Grace in this world. Godspeed to you Andy as you enter a blessed rest. And Jeff, may you be surrounded with love in the midst of this deep, deep loss.

The love you both shared was an inspiration to all. It was a comfort for me to know you and Andy were there to lift Maggie and family when I was not able to be there. It was such a delight to see the example you both exhibited to all who knew you. I'm glad to know that Andy is no longer suffering, though he always had his infectious smile on, hiding any pain. There was never a time when he didn't fight and work to make this world a better place. He will be missed by all!

Ron and I were best buddies at Tunstall High School. We were always hangin out together. People who didn't know us thought we were brothers. He went with my mom, dad, and me to the beach a couple of times. We played in a British invasion style band in the late sixties. Ron played bass. After graduation Ron left town and I didn't see him again until 2005. I always wondered where he was and how he was doing. He was a great guy. My condolences to his family.

Jean Sloop welcomed so many visitors to Poplar Grove, sitting behind an antique cash register in the Country Store with a large bubble glass of Boston Baked Beans that she would scoop into a brown paper bag for guests waiting to tour the house. She was a part of Poplar Grove for three decades, and she left an impression upon every single person whose hands were blessed by her touch. She read palms, but we think she better read the heart, mind, and spirit of a person, all their joy and sorrow, and in this way we were all touched by Jean. She will be missed, she will be remembered, and if we are lucky, on some enchanted evening, we will catch a glimmer of her spirit moving across the lawns of Poplar Grove.

Dearest Lakshmi Manni was a part of our lives for as long as I can remember. She was there the day we left India from Bombay to emigrate to the US - I cherish that photo. And her remarkably elegant presence, sage advice and sharp sense of humor lit up just about every important milestone or function in our lives ever since then. Manni always encouraged me with music and dance and always spoke her mind - something I valued so greatly!! In spite of her health challenges in recent years, she was spirited, fiercely caring about all of us, helping us cope with our own travails and losses - an absolute gem of a woman. May her beautiful soul rest in peace. Sending so much love to all who knew and loved her.

“Cover it in blankets,” she said. Lakshmi Manni even sent me a newspaper clipping about protecting my fig tree in Winter. “This is Texas Manni,”- I would tease her. The figs always came back in Spring. Year after year. Until 2021. They didn’t survive the epic freeze. Maybe if I had heeded Manni’s warning, the tree would still be alive? Maybe. I had to chop the tree down yesterday. Amidst the sadness of losing Manni, I noticed a flourish of saplings at the base of the old tree. So green, full of vigor, with a promise to bear sweet figs - for years to come. Rest In Peace Manni. Your legacy lives on ♥️ Kamli

Enveloped in her arms was an exquisitely warm and gentle place to hang out. There was peace in Granny Jean’s hugs. When Granny Jean was talking, everyone leaned in because you didn’t want to miss a single word. She was kind to the core and her incredible soul energy had no boundaries. I will be forever grateful for the blessing of knowing Granny Jean. Wherever she goes, she will take her wonderfully magical light with her but, absolutely, she left enough here for all of us to hold onto. Sending peace, love and light to her beautiful family.

Know you will miss her very much.

Lakshmi Manni was one of the most loving, caring, and sincere people I have ever known. In her passing, I have lost a loving sister and a dear friend. She was always there for me, sharing good times with genuine joy, and supporting me through hard times with her soothing words of wisdom and love. Manni will always hold a special place in my heart. May she continue to spread joy and peace in her next journey…

My deepest condolences to Jean's family. Jean was truly part of the magic of Wrightsville Beach in the 1970s. Amazingly beautiful, both inside and out, she never met a stranger. I'll will forever remember my afternoons at the "Sloop-Shop", her warm smile, her laughter, and her wonderful, stories. It was a blessing to have known her and a privilege to have called her a friend. Fly Jean! Fly!

Bonnie, I’m so sorry to hear about John’s passing. It sounds like he had many interests and was a very kind and generous man. I know he will be sorely missed.

 

Dale Rutman posted on 4/25/21

I was introduced to Jean by Deb Bowen years ago. I instantly felt a connection with her but who didn't? I always so enjoyed being around her. The main thing I will always remember about her is when I visited her home the first time she showed me all the cool things she had in her living room and told me that each treasure was a gift from someone. No matter whether it was large or small she loved each one and the person who gave it. The times I was fortunate enough to be around her she was fun.

 

BJ & David Ryan posted on 4/25/21

I don’t even know where to start with my memories of Jean, except to say that my family was blessed to have been ‘adopted’ by her when she became Granny Jean. We all cherish the time spent with her and Ralph, as we look over photos of the Christmas holidays and kids birthdays Jean & Ralph were always in the pictures. She will forever live in our hearts and we will see her the next time around.

To a long time friend (42 years) and Co-worker (21 years). You and I don’t morn Dearh, we celebrate their lives. I have been so lucky and fortunate to have shared our friendship, companionship, loyalty and trust all these years! You will truly be missed by your family and friends, but you leave behind a great legacy, with Chris and Tracey and all of your friends and even brief Acquaintances. Everyone knew what was on your mind (sometimes without filters) but you also had the ability to listen and evaluate. I think you have been on the Board of Realtors longer than any member, which is a testimony in itself to your dedication to your profession. You will be missed my friend, and I will swear God took you first to avoid the troubling future, and you didn’t have to write something about me. Love you man and God Bless you and your family...

Mrs. Nancy was a Faithful shopper at Food Lion on Market/Kerr Ave in Wilmington NC. I met her there over 20 years ago when I was the Customer Service Manager. Her infectious smile was always on her face. During the COVID-19 pandemic I was able to reconnect with her, through “Your are Enough” outreach ministries. Weekly I would bring her a bouquet of flowers. She would have a space on her counter available for her flowers. It was a blessing to have known her and loved her! My heart is heavy, because I didn’t get the opportunity to say goodbye, as I just found out she passed away. During her death, I also lost a love one, and I have been out of town. My condolences go out to the family; please know that Mrs. Nancy will be missed! God bless!

I'll miss our little adventures into Wilmington to ride around town. Simply just get out of the house or find something to eat for dinner. I will miss our 4 way conversations just before you and Dad would leave for work. I will miss the weird and awkward humor we would create together.

Hey Rosie, it was so awesome having you and Bill as our neighbors in the tides. Bill was always a positive light in all of our lives. Every day he was out and about walking the dog and always has something nice to say. His smile and attitude were infectious. Always willing to share a story or a beer with anyone. I will miss his milk punch at the New Year’s Day party. He made it so special by stirring it with his hairy arms. St. Patrick’s Day parties were the best! You couldn’t ask for a better time with the coolest people in the best neighborhood. It was so sad when we found out that Bill was fighting cancer. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you invited Carla and I over to spend time with Bill during his last days. Those days will always be in my heart and I am so happy that Bill was surrounded by many friends and family in the end. Bill will certainly be missed by many here on earth. It really makes me happy to know he’s now in heaven hanging out with Tim drinking red wine, laughing and looking down on all of us knowing one day we will all be together again. Thinking of you and the entire family during these challenging times. I’m glad he did not suffer and he went peacefully into the arms of God. May you be touched by goodness and grace and hold the memories close to your heart. Condolences from Russell, Carla and Ella

My sincere condolences to Rosie and all the family. Bill was a wonderful person, full of life, and always made you feel welcome. From Pru days when he was a mentor without trying, to making the Hunt a special event, when you spoke with him, his attention was toward you. I am grateful for his friendship and for all I learned from him which will stay with me always.

My dear beautiful Aunt Dina, I will remember all those "Sunday dinners" with the family. Your smile would light up a room. We love you and you will be missed. Our condolences to Linda, Anthony & Rudi.

It's hard to describe how friendships grow with the people you work with, but over time you get to know the person, their family and what drives them the most. Bill always handled it all so well. Bill, thanks for staying in touch over the years and including me (not just in the work), but in the fun -- it was my pleasure to know you! Always in our hearts......gwen

I have a book full of memories from when Bill was growing up. My mother and his mother were best friends. Bill drove me to the church in my bridal gown to get married in Syracuse on April 13, 1957..

What a great guy! I go way back with Bill to friendly summer days at Farley’s Point and college days on the hill at Cornell. All The Best to Rosie and the boys!

Farleys Point has lost one of its finest residents, a man who expressed generosity through his smile, good humor, and endless supply of odd tools. His water ski wipe outs attained legendary status, and who can ever forget the antics with spuds and accelerants? Rest in peace, my friend. Farleys Point will not be the same without you.

 

Frank Corsi posted on 4/14/21

I knew Bill from his Pru days. He was a gentle and kind man. At company social functions, when he spoke to you, he looked at you and actually listened and thought about what you said, a rarity. Bill and Rosie were always a fun couple to hang with at conferences and social events to share laughs and good times. Most importantly, Bill did not advance himself by making someone else look small.

I was so sad to hear of Bill’s passing. Bay Way won’t be the same without him. He was a great neighbor and I always enjoyed our conversations. I’ll really miss seeing Finn walk him down the street several times a day. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. ❤️

I learned so much from Bill while working with him at Pru. I know some of us still remember the annual canoe trip that he and Roger hosted and it was always great to reconnect at The Hunt. My condolences go out to you Rosie and your family.

Dear Matt, Although we never met, I knew who you were and how you always felt. Like they say, it takes one to know one. Only the ones that have the 100 yard stare can understand. Only the ones that have lived in the moment of fear in a time of war can understand. Only the ones that have been there can understand the deep lonelyness you truly feel when you are back home. Only the ones that have been there and back understand the void which is an unexplainable reality every moment of our lives. Rest well my brother, you did your job and you have nothing to apologise for to anyone, because most of them wouldn't understand anything anyway. Eternity is being forever together with your lost Brothers.

Sherry, Ronnie was more than your husband, he was your best friend and that makes your loss harder. My memory of Ronnie will always be the time we visited and the two of you put together a meal in no time, and he fried some really good fish. Always wondered what his secret was. As you face the next days, remember that you loved and were loved. And I can’t imagine a woman anywhere who is stronger and tougher than you….unless it’s Charlene! Sending prayers for you, Rhonda, Chip, Tracy and the rest of the family during this tough time.

She had a wonderful sense of humor, a contagious laugh and a deep love of her family and christ. Until my parents passed away she kept in touch with them through letters and christmas cards.. I was overjoyed to see her and Glenna at Ben and Laci's wedding April 20th, 2013 having you there meant the world to all of us. Rest in peace Ms. Maude, God Bless you as you fly with the angels.

My Father was an avid fisherman too and I have this prayer hanging on my wall in honor of him. I’m sure Doug would approve. “Fisherman’s Prayer” God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day. And when it comes to my last cast I then most humbly pray When in the Lords safe casting net I’m peacefully asleep. That in his mercy I be judged as big enough to keep.

Dean was one of a kind. I’ll always have those childhood memories of running down those stairs and could barely wait to bang on that door and see if he could come out and play. That red truck we rode day and night. Hitting whiffle balls into the neighbors yard and just being wild and fun kids. He always made me smile and was like a little brother to me we always just had fun and tried not to get into trouble although we most certainly did. Be at peace Dean. Those times will live with me forever. Max and Milan

I met your husband the day he passed away. I pulled up to the point and talked with him for about 20 minutes about what he was using and what was biting. I am a novice at surf fishing and he took the time to give me tips and knowledge. Even though I had only talked to him for a total of 30 minutes, I felt I had known him for longer. I am so so sorry for you and your families loss but I felt you needed to know how he treated me that day. He treated me like I would treat someone that was willing to learn. By the way, whatever he was hooked into was a lot bigger than 30lbs. His smile was bigger than life and he was having a blast. May you find peace in his passing.

Doug was always very gracious and friendly to neighbors who would drop by for a short visit or who might just happen to walk by while he was outside. He was a big asset to our neighborhood of Shellbank. Doug was always the first to repair our dock after a storm and maintained our emergency/maintenance funds account. His and Christy's yard put mine to shame. Doug had a loud laugh which Janet and I heard often, usually on the week-ends. He obviously was a very happy man; he appeared to live life fully. When I remember Doug I will mostly remember the mouth-watering smell of grilling meats coming from Christy and Doug's yard. Doug spent a lot of good quality time with his family and I know he will be missed tremendously. I pray that God will watch over Doug's family in these difficult times.

I spent a decent chunk of my childhood with Doug, wandering the woods of our neighborhood and fishing for bluegill at Lake Lanier. He had a boundless sense of curiosity about the world and a yearning for discovery. I'm so glad to learn he was able to instill a love of the outdoors in his kids. Such an intelligent, funny, compassionate, and often goofy guy. My sincere condolences to the family, whom Doug clearly adored.

To the family of Bob Appleton. Bob and I were classmates at West End High School. After West we took separate paths and did not meet again until our 50th class reunion in 2012. As I read other tributes here it is clear that the boy with a great smile, good nature, and easy friend remained the same throughout his life. When we met a few years back I thought how little Bob had changed and how all those qualities that made him so popular at West were completely intact. I can easily imagine what a gifted teacher and mentor he must have been to many. I was very sad to learn of his passing and want to extend my deepest sympathy to his wife and family.

Dearest Christy, Mackenzie, Avery, Alistair & Extended Family, There are few words that will ease the pain you're dealing with. We have all been paralyzed by this sad news. Our connection with Doug goes back to his Dean Witter days in Roanoke, VA, when he was just a kid! There aren't enough adjectives to describe this man, but the first few that come to mind are integrity, character, respectful, honest, selfless, loving, caring and the list goes on. Doug was not only our financial advisor, he quickly became like a brother. So many of our business communications would include discussions about family, health, sports, politics, etc. His laughter and always positive attitude were infectious. It only took a brief conversation to know the immense love and dedication he had for Christy and his children. We felt like we knew Christy well before we had the opportunity to meet her during a Wilmington trip not long after she and Doug were married. We will be praying that each of you will feel and experience the peace and understanding that only God can provide and that He will heal your pain in the midst of such a tragic loss. It goes without saying how much we are going to miss him, but look forward to seeing him again in his eternal home.

Doug had a sense of humor bigger than the man himself. Humor can make a serious difference. In the workplace, at home, in all areas of life – looking for a reason to laugh is necessary. A sense of humor helps us to get through the dull times, cope with the difficult times, enjoy the good times and manage the scary times. Thanks Doug!

So sad to hear the news about Bob. The world is sadder and quieter today without Bob in it. Such a great friend---such a fun friend. Bob made life fun, one of the happiest persons I have ever met. Bob was the first person I met in Wilmington 30 years ago when he picked me up at the airport to interview at UNCW. As soon as you met Bob you knew you had a friend for the rest of your life. Such a wonderful man. It makes me smile to think of Bob at basketball games here or up in Richmond for the conference tournament or singing in the quartet. Sympathies and prayers to you Shearon and everyone in the Appleton family.

I'll never forget my classroom serenade from Bob and his Cape Fear Chordsmen quartet in Cameron Hall! Memories include Bob helping in planning the Eastwood Village Christmas parties (or any parties), always present cheering for Seahawk sports teams, and always ready to share a story, song or joke. He will be missed.

I throughly enjoyed Bob's company whenever given the opportunity. We shared so many jokes, laughs, and stories of all kinds. One of my favorite memories is visiting Bob in his office, which was on an adjoining hall at the Business School. Bob told me one of his favorite jokes and we laughed for a solid 3-4 minutes. Bob had a great sense of humor and an infectious smile. Although I hadn't seen him lately, he continued to come to my mind for one reason or another. I will miss him. My sincere condolences to you, Shearon, and the family. May he rest in peace.

We are so sorry for your loss Shearon. Our prayers go out to you and your family. My memories bring me back to 1971 when I had Bob or Mr. Appleton as my Cost Accounting teacher at UNCW. He was serious about subject matter but also made us laugh. He once gave us an exam and tested us on material that we hadn’t covered yet. When asked why he did that afterwards he said he wanted to see what we would do with the uncovered material. We liked him so much we named our Intramural basketball team after him “stump jumpers” but never mentioned it because he would not have liked our nickname for him “stump”, all in good fun. I later got to know Bob as an adult and appreciated our friendship. We often spoke of my former classmates and how they were doing. Patricia and I so enjoyed sharing time with you Shearon and Bob at UNCW functions and Seahawk games and travels. May God bless you and your family and our fond memories warm your hearts!

RIP, Bob. The fun days of playing together as cousins along Music Row in Nashville and atop Sand Mountain and Round Mountain in Alabama are over, but not forgotten. Jesus went ahead of you to prepare a new place for you. He was a carpenter and He's been working on it for 2000 years, so it must be some kind of mansion. I know you will enjoy it and reuniting with Uncle J, Aunt Emma and Jerry. Hope to see you later pal.

Bob was a great colleague and friend at UNCW. He always had a smile on his face and everyone just loved him, students and faculty alike. I have a fond memory of attending a concert his quartet put on and I remember being so surprised at what an angelic voice he had. What a talent!! I know he is singing with the angels now. I truly enjoyed him as a colleague and friend at UNCW and more recently enjoyed his and Shearon’s company at the CSB and ABL Christmas parties. He will be so deeply missed. He was such a wonderful person and Professor and I am blessed to have known him.

To Bob’s family - I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Bob from our church youth group and through junior high and high school. I’ve enjoyed knowing that Bob continued his singing. He led us in song at so many youth group activities. I can still remember the words to one of my favorite songs that he used to sing. I was so happy to reconnect with him through Facebook the past few years, He will be missed.

Our condolences to Shearon, to Robin and his family, to Jill and her family and to Susan and Barbara. Bob was a one of a kind. Best joke teller, amazing singer and musician, a loyal and carrying friend. Traveling with Bob (and Shearon) was always an experience. When we traveled to Ireland, he joined all the singing groups and participated in the festivals. A stranger would think he was a native. We didn’t have to worry about having fun when we were with Bob, because just being with him guaranteed a good time with lots of laughter. We will miss him. Jack and Sandy Baker

At times it is difficult to put into words what is in your heart and this is one such time. Some "thought-words" that come from the heart are: Generous - "to a fault," Bob gave of himself to others so willingly, sharing his wonderful talents with family, friends, UNCW colleagues, and charitable community organizations; Joyous - Bob's very presence lit up the room, whether a classroom, a boardroom, a hospital room or my home; Harmonious - not just in his CF Cordsmen melodies but in the caring way that he took care of the problems of family, friends, distraught students, and young faculty under his supervision; Genuine - Bob's sense of humor often masked his integrity, loyalty and wonderfully honest character. Stella and I extend our deepest condolences to Shearon and family. We will miss Bob so very much.

 

Stephen Harper posted on 3/29/21

Dear Bob's family: Bob was one of the first faculty members I met when I joined the faculty in 1976. I have many fond memories of Bob ... the most noteworthy are he always had a smile on his face and was very upbeat - even with the various challenges he faced over the years. I always looked forward to seeing Bob. He was a dedicated professor and caring person. He was a great ambassador for UNCW and the Cameron School of Business. I consider him to be one of the primary building blocks in the business school's foundation. I already miss him and know he will be remembered by thousands of students.

Milton, I was very shocked and saddened when I read the newspaper of Susie’s passing. The Woodle and Freeman families have my deepest sympathy. Susie and I were long-time co-workers at N.C. State Ports Authority in Wilmington. She always had a beautiful smile and she was a very pleasant lady to work with. She always talked about her sister Millie, and her little nephew Ashley, whom she loved dearly. I remember the time when Susie, Marian, Lottie, and I would all carpool together to go to K & W Cafeteria during our lunch hour. Long after I left the Ports, Susie and I kept in contact. Also in our passing along the way, Susie was always asking about my Mother, and my sisters, Bunnie and Janice. She was a very caring person. After Janice and Susie would often times stop and talk along their way, Janice would come home to tell me that she saw Susie today. Then, I will never forget that day, about 9 1/2 years ago, when I was about to pull out of the hospital parking lot, Susie rode up beside me (on her way to visit her friend in the hospital); I rolled my window down and told her that Janice just passed away in the hospital. Susie said “what” in shock and disbelief. After I had arrived home, it wasn’t about twenty minutes when Susie came by our home to express her condolences to us. I am very thankful to have met Susie—a very kind and compassionate lady. Milton and Susie’s family - I pray that you will find peace and strength in knowing that Susie is now in Heaven in the Mighty Arms of our Jesus Savior Christ.

Susie will be sorely missed by a lot of people including myself. She was always smiling and happy to be around people. Susie stepped up to the plate when Clara from Morganton, NC died before she could become Department President of the American Legion Auxiliary Department of NC. Susie was gracious enough to even say that she would honor all of Clara's appointments, thoughts and ideas for the year. No one else wanted to step up and say they would take the position for Clara, but Susie did. So that is how she and Milton were Department President and Department Commander in the same year. Milton and family, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow, but also know that she is in a better place now, out of suffering and pain. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around you all.

Jane, I can share in the sadness of your loss. I have tried for over an hour, to no avail, to compose a worthy condolence of Don’s passing. Honestly, no words, no sentiment and no expressive comments can describe (realistically) the kind, loving, pleasant, smart, giving, sociable, friend that he was to me, and others, during my knowing him. Especially working for nearly thirty years with Don and Ray C. was a best part of my life. There are none present and past that influenced my life as did the two of them! I offer to you and yours whatever unconditional Support that I can during this time of grief. Sincerely, Doug Barnhill [email protected]

My heartfelt condolences to all of you. My first memories of Joe was went I was a little girl. When the fire horn went off myself and some kids in the neighborhood would run to the corner of Cedar and Stanley St to watch this tall, thin fireman come out of his house and run up Ceader St to try and make the truck at Briggs St. We would cheer when he made the truck, which he usually did. Lol Who know that I would meet a guy in that same Co, become good friends, become backyard neighbor's for 36 yrs., And share fun happy memories, especially our trips to Disney. RIP Joe.

My beautiful Joe, We survived so much that we wentthrough together over the last thirty years. From the minute I met you and we were falling for each other you wanted to take care of me and my children. You became another father to them and only tried to make sure we were okay. After Gina and Chris lost their dad, you were there for them. When we lost our house in Belmar, you were so sad and we rebuilt a new house and you fell sick. It was a miracle that you survived . Your determination was unbelievable to recover the best way you could. You reached goals that were unachievable for most. I wish I told you more how very proud I was of you, how very much I love you and how I cherished you in my life. Through thick and thin and through good and bad our love was deep and will always be. I wanted to live the rest of my life loving you and spending more time with you. You wanted to be with the kids so bad and hold Emery and Noah and sit on the floor and play with them. You left way too soon. I will love you forever. You will be in my heart forever and I will cherish you with all my heart. Please Rest In Peace and know how very much you are missed and loved. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I am so sorry for your loss. Wayne was one of handful of us kids that were teens together at the lakes. I'd hang out at his house. We tried to pick out Norwegian Woods on the banjo. I caught up with him years back. He reminded me about a water color class that he, my mother and I took. I lost contact with him after that. I started looking for him again a few years ago. I thought about going to see him since I retired. I wasn't sure it was him till I saw the scar on his forehead. His passing saddens me.

We always said we thought of each other [like] family but truthfully you were family. I will miss your bright light and thoughtful ways and your sweet sense of humor. You were taken way too soon and you will forever be missed. Love U bunches! May God take good care of you… Donna, we had some fun times and good laughs together and I will treasure those memories.

My heart was saddened when I learned of this untimely death. Although I did not know him well, I knew of him well and knew his heart. Growing up knowing the hearts of my dear Aunt Cathy and Uncle Dempsey, it is obvious to me the heart this young fellow had. He came along later in life as I was a little older, and then distance of miles kept us separated but I was always kept updated by my Granny Dunlap each time I visited with pictures and stories of “Lee” - the last and youngest grandchild of the many she had. I hate I only met him and his loving wife only once but their love and devotion was obvious with that one encounter. My dear Aunt Cathy...love and prayers for you - I wish I could be there to just hug you. For you all,I can’t imagine your pain but I know you will eventually be comforted by knowing in your hearts he is viewing heaven with those beautiful blue eyes doing more of God’s work up there!

Words cannot express the shock we atre feeling over Squeaker’s untimely passing. Gone way too soon. Many happy memories of his childhood, especially him playing Flathead in the boardwalk puppet show. A good Godly young man who had a smile and a sense of humor that lit up every room he entered. A great storyteller who was a joy to be around. We will miss him terribly and will keep his wife Janet and his mother Cathy in our prayers...

We both had such great affection for Mr. Charley as we called him. My favorite memory is taking him to restaurant and hour and half drive out of Wilmington where we had once dined and enjoyed it so much because of the yummy homemade bread and pasta dishes. When we finally got there the place was under new management and the service and food was terrible and we waited forever to get terrible food. Mr. Charley fell asleep on the long drive home and then NEVER let us forget what a miserable "date" it was. We miss him very much and hope his family will find peace in their sweetest memories.

It was always a treat visiting Uncle Jimmy, Aunt Margaret, and the cousins in Virginia when we were kids. Uncle Jimmy would get out in the snow and play with us all; he was like a kid himself. We kids would run through the house playing, yelling and laughing. It always struck me how calm and content he always seemed even with all the chaos. Mom and Aunt Margaret (and maybe Daddy) on the other hand, were ready to put us in chains and muzzles. As we got older that calmness was consistent, even with his high jinks. While I will miss Uncle Jimmy, like Alison, I look forward to seeing him again one day. Aunt Margaret, Susan, Debbie, and Michael - know that I love you and am praying for you as you continue to grieve. May God grant you peace, comfort and joy in the memories and what’s ahead for those in Christ!

I got my hair cut by James, I always thought his name was Jim due to the name of the barber shop. My grandpa had his own barber shop and coming into Jim’s barbershop, it felt like home again. I always enjoyed the conversations we would have while getting my superb haircuts from Jim. He would tell me stories about traveling around the United States with his wife, which states he preferred. Told me stories about his training in Tahoe, California that prepped him for the snow, how they had to learn how to survive for his marine training. Sometimes he’d tell me some life lessons I needed to hear, whether he knew he was telling me or not. I’m usually a person who gets there haircut once every 2 months, that’s just the way I am but I remember one day he asked me if it was for financial reasons and I feel he was going to lower his price for me, but I obviously couldn’t accept and it was just my routine of when I get haircuts. (He obviously didn’t ask in a rude way either, it was polite as could be) . He was a kind and great man and I appreciate the short amount of time I was lucky to spend with him. I’m sorry for his families loss, I’m sure he is missed but never forgotten.

Dear Stephen, I will always remember our childhood as you were more of a brother to me than a nephew. I remember when we were kids and getting caught smoking your moms cigarettes and she said that if we wanted to use tobacco we could go to the store and buy some chewing tobacco and gave us a couple of dollars. Boy did she teach us! We were so sick we had to lay on the ground along side the road. She really taught us a lesson! That night we camped in the back yard and practiced chewing just a little bit so the next day we could show her that we liked it! I can say that was the last time for our tobacco chewing days! I also remember being in the boy scouts with you and camping. On one camping trip, we woke up to discover that you were covered in chigger bites head to toe! That ended the camping trip and I remember your mom putting clear fingernail polish all over you. I remember one Christmas while your sister Lisa was playing with her doll house, we took her easybake oven and made some cakes. Man were those good! The only thing is that we used all of the cake mix that came with the oven and when Lisa found out she was furious with us! (sorry Lisa).I remember us catching this big bullfrog and took it back to the house and wanted to see what it would do if we threw it in with the chickens! The poor bullfrog let out a scream and you were in there saving its life! We returned the bullfrog to the creek with our apologies. I remember later in life when I had moved to Winston Salem, I would get a call from you and your brother Brian and ask me if you could come visit. I would say sure when are you coming? You would reply right now! we're sitting in your driveway! There are so many more memories that I will cherish in my heart and will keep you in my heart as that young kind hearted, mischievous, fun loving boy. Until we meet again rest in peace...Uncle Larry

About 50 years ago our families met camping and quickly became friends. From the start it was obvious that Richard wanted to know what made items work. He took life wide open not wanting to miss anything it had to offer. Richard attracted people of all ages with his personality and loving spirit. When Richard would leave your home he left everyone smiling and chuckling. Our hearts go out to Florence and the family. I'm sure Richard will hear the words of our savior, "Well done thy good and faithful servant!" We miss you Richard but you left our world a much better place!

About 50 years ago my family met the Taylor family while camping. I will never forget that tall, dark and handsome guy with the beautiful smile and soft spoken voice. Bobby loved life but most of all he enjoyed sharing life with others. Bobby took me on my first sailing, took me to my first college dance and fist college basketball game. Bobby always left a little bit of his heart with everyone he met. Our family was blessed and enriched by knowing Bobby. Our love and prayers go out to Florence, Guy, Albert, Craig and family. Our tears fell but the smiles will last forever because Bobby will always be in our heart. Any time a Carpenter song is played i will think of you Bobby. We look forward to seeing you again one day on those beautiful shores!

This actually hurt my heart reading it. I had the privilege of being her fifth and sixth grade student. Before then, I did anything I could to get out of going to school. I dreaded school. Everything about it. Honestly, until her. I have no idea why, or how she did it, but she did what I thought was was absolutely impossible, and made school semi-barable. She could connect with everyone at the same time, without singling anyone out, and that is truly a gift that few have. She was a perfect teacher that made everything fun. She will be missed by so many because you couldn't meet this woman and NOT remember her.

I always remembered he had a smile on his face, especially during our class since we were his favorite!! At least thats what he told us. I am sure he will be missed by many people.

Mr. C. You were the best teacher ever!!!! We learned so much from you!! Always so kind, no wonder we went back to school for years just to visit you!! God bless you and your family

Very sad to learn of his passing. Mr. C was my all-time favorite teacher at Findlay High School. I would never have made it through without him. He was a great teacher and also became a great friend. He will be missed. Accounting/Computer Specialists, Class of 1988

I loved her as a teacher! Very approachable and really cared about her students. And we were part of her ski club crew for awhile. I literally cried when I read this. She was an awesome mom, teacher and a person who you never forgot. I am so glad she got to keep living her life the way she wanted. That woman always made lemonade out of lemons! Bless her and her family at this time. It has been at least 35 yrs and I can still remember her clearly.

Mrs. Siddons was my absolute favorite teacher. I was blessed to have her both in fourth and sixth grade. I continued to stop by and see her for many years into my adulthood. The obituary was perfectly written and describes a vivacious woman full of life, just as I remember her. Condolences to all of you.

Bob was my nephew and my friend. I loved talking to him about all kinds of things. We shared an interest in Real Estate, crafts, festivals, finding unique pieces of furniture and decorating, especially at Christmas. He was a kind, gentle man with many, many talents. We both shared the love of animals and "spoiling them rotten". They were our babies. He was a great tour guide, especially around the Charleston area. He loved the sand and sea, as I do, and lived in several coastal areas where he always knew the best restaurants, around. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. I will always remember Bob and he will will live forever, in my heart. I pray for his Mom, Florence, Step Dad, Guy, Brothers, Albert and Craig and their families and for all his many friends that God will give them the strength they need to get through this and go forward. As difficult as it is not to be sad, I know Bob would not want any of us to be sad. My love to you all! Deborah

Richard was my nephew and my friend. I cannot say enough "good" and "fun" things about Richard. He was always the life of the party. He was always smiling and thinking of something to put a smile on your face. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was someone you liked having around, anytime, any place. I always looked forward to seeing Richard and talking with him on the phone.. I am devastated by the loss of him. I will always remember him and he will live on in my heart, forever. I am praying for his Mom, Florence, his Step Dad, Guy, Brothers, Albert and Craig and families and all of his many friends, that God will give them the strength they need to get through this and go forward.

Bjoern Lars Lipprandt posted on 3/9/21

It has been almost 25 years ago when we first met… . The day, when Carol and Bill decided to let me step into their life and welcomed me to their family counts as one of the most blessed days of my life. Since then they have been influencing and guiding the direction of my life and have been forming my thinking and character in a way, which still leaves me breathless every time I am becoming aware of it and which I can only be deeply, deeply thankful of. It would be too much, to talk here about all the things in my life of which they will ever be a part of… . Maybe this expresses it best: Until the day I met Carol and Bill, I have never thought, that it would be possible, that two (host-)parents could make me feel loved so much and that I could love them back so deeply. They will be welded together with my life for the rest of my life. Now one of them has gone; or as my sister Frauke wrote me in tears: ‘Our Big Daddy across the great water left’. My and my family’s prayers go to the whole Calhoun-Family and although my sister and I are not physically with you, we send you all our love and strength to go through the following days. What a great man Bill was. I miss him so much, will miss him for the rest of my life until I die and until we meet again. In deep love, Bjoern

Our fondest and greatest memories of Bill go back 50 years ago. Bill was a wonderful husband and father, son-in-law, and brother-in-law to the Deaver family until the very sad and sudden loss of Becky. He went on to find a new life with Carol who became a loving mother to Todd. They were great parents to my young nephew Todd, and to their future children Amy and Adam. My parents and all of us gained an extended family and were a part of their lives growing up. Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire Calhoun family with the passing of Bill. Mike, Roberta Deaver and Family l.

My husband, John and I, are both educators, and had some great conversations with Bill about school and all that he'd experienced in his many years of working in education.

I can't begin to imagine what you are going through now nor what led him to this but I know he walks with God now and will be with you always. Heaven now has another beautiful angel but this one is yours to look over and protect you all always. With all my love and sorrow he will be missed.

We are so sorry to hear about Aida's passing. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to spend enough time with her, but whenever we did, we enjoyed her company.

We have been St. Paul's members with Elkie since we moved to Wilmington in 1992. She always greeted us warmly and with great interest in our family and children. We live on North 15th Street and Elkie told us she grew up on that street and on Friday nights they would put up road blocks so they could have a block party where all the kids could roller skate all up and down North 15th Street. She was a delightful woman that will always be remembered so fondly by our family.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

My husband Danny and I met and became friends with Lou and Aida in 2019 when moved in next door to them in Leland. Aida was one of the most kind, friendly, gracious and caring people I have ever met. She always had a smile on her face and seemed to remain positive and hopeful all throughout her illness. My husband and I feel heartbroken at Aida’s passing. God took another “good one”, he often takes the best— Lou, Steve, and Vanessa surely have a guardian angel in Heaven. Aida will be missed very much. Love and prayers to all her family and friends.

Aida was so much a part of our family and a blessing to all of us. A welcoming loving person that I never heard say a negative word about anyone. She was gracious , kind and someone that made you feel loved. We will miss her. I’m first cousin to her husband Louie. His mother and my mother were sisters. My mom embraced Aida as another daughter and they worked together at Clara Mass Hospital in New Jersey. My mom and my dad loved her so very much because they saw the genuine person that she was. To Vanessa , Stephen, and my Marine brother Louie as well as Aida ‘s sisters , be proud of this wonderful women that graced all of our lives. Always Faithful Peter Gasiewicz

I realized today that the short summary of his life in an obituary does share the over flowing love he had for people! As we sorted through tubs of family photos, it was easy to see how he blessed so many with his humbleness and love. I am blessed and honored to carry his name even if I am just his daughter-in law. Fred welcomed me like family from the day I met him almost 37 years ago, and has always loved me as one of his own. I always felt comfortable when he would sometimes even introduced me as his other daughter. I will miss him very much! ❤️

Marie, Cynthia, Kieth and Tim, Most precious memories of a time long past, but not forgotten. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to know each of you, and to have been mentored at such a young age by Pitt. He gave a young boy of 12 his first job at Merritt's Grocery and kindled a friendship and respect between us that lasts today. I learned so much from Pitt; from his sharp and quick humor, to his deep sense of faith and family. When Marie would bring the kids to the grocery store it was a time of smiles and laughter. I will continue to remember those fun times, to remember Pitt and treasure well the lessons he taught me about family, life and people. God's blessings and peace to each of you. Ray Spencer

Truly a sad loss for Wilmington and the Carl family . Joanne had a spark for life , learning, & educating, I share warm memories of her as a kind caring and nurturing spirt . As I write this I am forever reminded of her as I gaze at the beautiful ceramic pottery vase next to my fireplace she gave me when I got married. Lost touch with her over the years but she always hold a special place in my heart .

I am stunned and so saddened to have learned of Sandy’s passing. He did a precious portrait of my Coton de Tulear a few years ago. He was hesitant at first, having never painted an all white dog.......but, it turned out magnificent!!! Our community has lost a treasure and Ken has lost his dear one. My sincere sympathy to all Sandy’s family and friends.

Jim’s obituary was quite a story about a very remarkable man. I wish I had known him, Diane. I only knew about Jim through you and what you shared about him. You certainly left a lot out!! You and Lauren, extended family, and friends will miss him, but together you have a multitude of wonderful memories to sustain you and give you peace.

Remember when Betsy got married, I helped your mom get dressed & took her to wedding. You & Carl had gone ahead. As your mom was getting tired I took her home & helped her get ready for bed. As I was leaving the garage door got stuck & I couldn’t get it up or down.I couldn’t leave with door open so in a panic I called Carl & had him leave wedding to come home & get door down. I was so embarrassed!

I met Steven many moons ago in 6th grade. We were constantly getting into trouble for switching assigned seats in Ms Obee's class. He took the heat for me a lot so I could sit behind my best friend. That goofy grin always brightened my day and I remember even as we were being told to return to our assigned seats Ms Obee even had a hard time staying mad at him because of that charm he had. Rest easy my childhood friend. Many will miss you.

I met Steve in California. I am a childhood friend of Cindy's and we reconnected when I found out she and Steve lived out here too. Steve instantly became a friend of mine and my husband's; he had a personality that felt as if you'd known him for life. We went to Hawaii with Cindy and Steve in 2007 and I remember thinking about how much we all loved it there; it felt like home. I know Steve is on an endless vacation like the one we had, loved and held by the divine. I am grateful to have known him. I am sending all of his family love and solace as you walk through the grief. May knowing his light illuminated everyone he met bring you comfort and connection. I can see him, embraced by the sunlight of the spirit and truly at peace.

We were so sorry to hear about John’s passing. We first met John when we were doing a walk-through to clean his property. We were called and greeted at the door by Marianne, who through our witness has proven to be an angel by his side. At first John came off as a very stern individual who clearly was not happy strangers would be infringing on his person space lol. But after spending some time here and there to get to know John, we realized there was a beautiful person within his tough exterior that loved to reminisce. The best stories come from those who have lived them and in those stories we were privileged to mentally experience them as if we were right by his side in history. We’ve learned that John has experienced more about living than most people would in multiple lifetimes, and in that we find happiness knowing that he always followed his heart.

Steve was a very important part of my life as a teen and young adult. I loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him. Probably drove him crazy. He was a heartbreaker. But our friendship was true and I'll never forget him. I was happy to catch up with him on facebook over the years and share how much our lives had changed. I always believed I'd get to talk to him face to face again one day. I'm reminded of him often by little things here and there. We had a lot of great talks in our younger days and he talked alot about his brothers and sisters, his mom and dad. I know he aggravated his brothers and sisters and worried his parents to death, but he would do anything for all of them and vice versa. He was so special to me and will always hold a place in my heart. I'm so very sorry for this loss and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.

His laughter was contagious and he makes me laugh, even now. I don’t know who I would be without having known Steven. Thank God I will never have to find out. I am grateful to you, his family, for shaping his life, his character and for sharing him with us. He has been a source of strength for so many of his friends. Many of the best times in our lives have been the celebrations we have shared with Steven. He spoke about each of you with reverence and respect. He was especially proud of his Dad’s service and work ethic. If there is a heaven, he is in it. My sincerest condolences to you all. He was a steadfast friend to so many. May he rest in eternal peace and his memory bring each of you boundless joy.

Memories are wonderful and I know you all will keep them dear to you of Mary Ann. At Davis Community you three walked down to say hello to us and my mom as she was in the rehab unit at the time. It was a delight to meet your Mom and she made my mom feel at ease knowing what it was like at Davis. Thank you! Later on we met each other on walks outside enjoying the sunshine. What a treat it was to meet your Mom, a lovely lady! God bless Mary Ann and to your family at this time of sadness. Rejoice as she is in Heaven with God and many loved ones. Hugs~Di &.

I will always remember my trip with my aunt Mary Ann from/to Raleigh and Endicott. I recall reinstating the fact that she was always my favorite aunt. We would both laugh knowing that she was my 'only' aunt. Rest in peace aunt Mary Ann, and keep a watchful eye on my dad up there.

Hobbs & family, I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Sutton. You were so dedicated to bring her to church each Sunday (prior to the pandemic). She was so thoughtful to ask about my mother every time I saw her when my mother was living. I will miss seeing her sitting near the front. We will keep you all in our thoughts & prayers during this difficult time.

We always loved every opportunity of seeing Mary Ann, always Mrs. Whittemore to us. It was always very apparent how much she loved her Sons, Daughters-in-Law and Grandchildren. And she had a way of making you feel special because you were friends of her son. Our deepest sympathies to Mike and the whole Whittemore Family at Mary Ann’s passing.

I am so sorry to hear of Gary's passing. He was co-teacher in my English classes at Bowie High School, a quiet but firm presence in the room, moving from student to student to keep them on task. He kept in close contact with parents, alerting them to any behavioral problems, but also advising them of their children's successes. Always a gentleman, Gary was a fine role model for the adolescent boys in particular. He was a great help to the students and to me as well. My prayers are with Karen and family.

Kathy was a very good friend of mine. We got to know each other when we both worked at The Old Sautee Store. We had such a good time working together. Sometimes we would take a car ride around the north Georgia area and she would show me places, that she and Jack used to visit. Other times we had lunch or dinner together with our friends from the store. When she moved to Wilmington, I would visit her there once a year. I will miss her a lot!

Dearest Cousins, It is heartbreaking to hear of our dear cousin's passing and even more difficult to comprehend his illness and how quickly David left your side. I know you all cherished each other deeply and he wouldn't depart without knowing you would be cared for and surrounded with love. He was a gentle soul who also loved a bit of excitement. As a child I remember his musical talents and as a teenager his college advice. But mostly, I know he thought the world of the women in his life and hope you will feel his watchful eye always.

Brad, You were a 'general's class' Beast Barracks roommate for me during our two most 'far beyond challenging' hellish months beginning our four years at The United States Military Academy at West Point. Always tough, never flustered, never selfish, but caring and good for the team. We survived and then went to different companies of the Fourth Regiment but never lost the camaraderie we felt and shared in those two months. You held "Duty, Honor and Country" deep in your soul and set an example even for the older guys like myself, and I thank God for our friendship and the influence you had on me. Your physical strength was obvious to everyone but so was your gentleness and caring held in your big heart. Though you sought and promoted harmony around you, you would not shy from confrontation when it was needed. You were a great reliable and encouraging soldier buddy for anyone peered with or subordinated to you. Your Faith in God leaves an indelible mark on all of us who knew you and that mark will sustain us in our Faith throughout our remaining path until we are all together again. In God's Love and Our Friendship

Long ago, Pam was a teacher at St. Mary's in Big Rapids, MI. She took on the kindergarteners for morning sessions and the we added 3 yr. old and 4 yr. olds on different days in the afternoon. She was AMAZING with the little ones and really loved her job being quite creative in so many ways. One day I had to substitute for her. I was principal then. The kindergarten kids were hard to wrangle in; they preferred to ignore me and each other, but we did get the objectives done. Then the 3 yr olds came in and were so different, excited, and a cohesive group with evident leaders already. That day I saw up close and personal and reflected about how Pam was always bubbly and full of life and was the perfect fit of a teacher for these young students. And if she ever complained, it was always packed with humor and positivity. I just thought how well she taught 3 totally different classes and personalities with so much love and fun! This is how she approached life and with all her met her. She could lighten your load with her light from within.

My memories of my cousin Dalton go way back to our earlier childhood days. Like being at our grandparents farm in Hyde County. As kids we played sports out in the backyard, told stories in the old barn. We played our guitars in Papa’s old house during family reunions and other family events. I always loved being around my cousin Dalton. He was always a lot of fun to be around and full of life. I will have loving family memories of him for the rest of my life. I am very thankful for the times we had together and I will love him forever!

When we bought the Old Sautee Store, Kathy was working there in Sautee, Georgia. She immediately won our hearts with her classy style and beautiful heart. She was such a special part of our early years there...loyal beyond measure, always upbeat and encouraging. The experience would not have been the same without her. We will always be grateful for her time in our lives. Thank you Kathy. Our prayers are with Jack and Franny and her family. God bless

Heather, sorry I have not wrote you in so long. Thought it would get easier. There is a special angel in Heaven that is a part of me, It's not I wanted her to be but God wanted her to be. She was here for 27 years like a shooting star. Though she is in Heaven she isn't very far.She touched the lives of many, like only Angels, can do. I would have held her every minute if I would only knew. So send this special message to Heaven. Please take care of my Angel God and send her ally love.

My thoughts and prayers are with Larry and with all of the family. I was Lawandra and Larry's neighbor. They became my friends and we had some good times with our talks. I am so sorry to hear of Lawandra's passing. I am also sorry to hear Larry is still dealing with his bout of this COVID. I pray rehab will be short for him and that he can get through this and back home where he belongs. After everything Lawandra went through after the sidewalk accident, I thought she was on the mend and last I saw them, they were both doing well even though she was still having some trouble with her hand. She is so beautiful and they are such good people. I will miss Lawandra and I will definitely keep Larry in my prayers for his healing. Please hold on to the beautiful memories and know Lawandra is now free from this and has her wings and is totally free watching down on all of you. ❤ ❤ God Bless her. P.S. Larry, that was me calling you in observation. You didn't take the call because I didn't have your cell phone. I only had Lawandra's. I was your pest! I apologize. While you are at rehab I hope everything goes well and you get better and fully recover. I have you in my thoughts and prayers and to your beautiful wife, her spirit is shining down on all of you. If there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to give me a call. So many years together. So many memories to cherish. <3 <3

Many fond memories with Jim and Margie, our neighbors! Gathering either at their house or ours and them telling us great stories of their travels and whatnot. Wish I had taken more pictures of them together but the only one I have is when we had them over for tacos during Hurricane Florence. Jim would come over, knocking on our door, asking for some kind of help; not figuring out the new tv or why the answering machine wouldn’t work etc Always in his shorts and tank top. Missing him very much but not as much as Margie certainly does!

I first met Terry at The Plant Place back in May 2020 to purchase a plant for my home right right after moving to Wilmington from Raleigh to start my real estate business. I still remember to this day how motivational she was to me. We talked briefly about my new business and my future plans. One of the last things I remembered telling her was where I wanted to be in 5-yrs, and she looked at me and said, "I expect to see you back here in 5-yrs telling me of your successes." We smiled and said our goodbyes. But, I'll never forget her warm welcoming to the Wilmington area. Terry, I'm so sorry I never got back around to visiting The Plant Place and talking with you fabulous ladies there. I just want you to know that you have always been a part of my motivation. You truly are a beautiful person inside/out. Thank you for your inspiration. You will be greatly missed....

We laughed and we cried but most of all we were always there for each other. The miles never separated us and neither will her death. She is with me in my heart. Rest In Peace my friend.

Kevin: It breaks my heart that Debbie has passed away. Her last words to me were don't worry I'll be fine. I believed her because I so desperately wanted her to be ok. She was a friend in good times and bad. She was always there if I needed an ear to vent or a friend to share good news with. When she was in Lindenhurst we had lunch together at Applebees or the diner. Good company good conversation. I truly miss our lunches but she was happy in North Carolina with her new friends and the activities they shared. We spoke on our cells every week sometimes several times a week if one of us needed to talk. I get in my car to go home from work and just want to call her. Be well Kevin

Words cannot express the pain felt at the loss of someone that is so dear to his wife, his family and even his friends. During this time of grieving it is important to remember all of the good times spent with Charlie and all of the kindness he displayed for others. Although God has called Charlie to his Heavenly family and indeed his Heavenly reward, Charlie will be remembered for all he did while with us and how bravely Charlie faced his final days. Charlie is and always will be our best friend and we will always be here for his wife, Judy, as we promised Charlie but would be anyway because she is and always will be our best friend too!

Mr. Doug was a kind, caring gentleman! He was a hugger that loved people. He told my sister I taught him in the 1st grade jokingly. Of course, that wasn't possible. I was somewhat younger than him but he made us all laugh at Ruth's Kitchen. He may be our earthly loss but Heaven's gain. Love you, Mr. Doug!

I remember we spent the weekend together at my aunt's during winter break. We went outside to play in the snow, I was 12 he was 9 years old. We were sliding across the icy road for over an hour. At one point he fell down hard on his back and was lying there. He was having trouble breathing so I was scared that he was dying. Obviously he just got the wind knocked out of him but us being kids we were overly dramatic. After a few seconds he caught his breath I picked him up and we went back to playing. I will always love you brother and I hope that heaven is everything and more that Pop pop and Gramama said it is. Rest In Peace, from your Big Bro.

Doug was one of the best men that I have ever known. Down to earth, honest, and I always knew where I stood with him. He helped me coach basketball for several years. He kept me in line and let me know when I had been too hard on a kid. My respect for him was always extremely high. He will be greatly missed but I will see him again. God, bless the Keen family and hold them in your arms.

Thinking a lot about you today as we mark the one year anniversary of your passing. So much has happened in that time but none of it dulls the loss I feel in my heart. I promise we will take great care of Sue for you. She’s been a real blessing to us as we’ve been able to bring her into our family since moving back home! Miss you and love you more than words can say Dad!

Henry and I are so sorry for your loss. Doug, better to known to us as "Layton's Granddad," has been a special part of our lives for the last 6 years. He was always faithfully at Pathways every school day to pickup Layton. We will miss him driving up everyday in his truck. He was always so kind and caring, and easy to talk to. He was truly a good man. We will miss him so much. Our prayers are with you.

Doug was one of the kindest, lovingest and caring people I have ever known. His sweet hugs every Sunday meant the world to me. Linda, it was such an honor to make your and Doug's 50th wedding anniversary cake; and what an honor to be the recipient of one of Doug's "POCKET ANGELS". I carry it with me the time. I love you both so much and will always be here for you and your family. Until we meet again Doug....Bill and I love you!

Katherine and I met at one of the regular meetings of the Wilmington Newcomers Club. Katherine was always elegantly dressed in her classic style. Katherine and I played Mah Jongg and a card game called Hand and Foot, where she ably demonstrated her mental acuity. She was an absolutely delightful woman, who will be greatly missed.

I did not know Douglas, but every day as I interact with one of his sons in business and in our common faith in Christ, I can see a character that can only emerge out of a father who loved him. May a peace in Christ Jesus that passes understanding guard the hearts and minds of the whole family.

Kevin, Debbie was my beautiful, caring, fun-loving friend. We shared so many memories in such a short time. We were always there for each other and pulled each other through life’s challenging moments. Missing her now more than I thought was possible. I know Deb and Frank have each other’s back in a better place. Till we meet again. Rest In Peace, Deb, and breathe. ❤️
