So sorry to hear of Lynda's passing. We were cheerleaders together at Topsail. She helped plan our class reunion and it was great to talk about school and get on the dance floor like we did at the community center in our teens. We will be together again.

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

My heart goes out to the family. Kathy was such a bright and sparkling light, very giving, and one of the most even-tempered people I have ever met, which is saying a lot coming from the community of theater.... I enjoyed trading comments with her when we worked at the Renaissance Festival, and the patrons were always drawn to her sweet face....

Thank you for the laughs, the shows, the joy you provided us on and offstage. I’m fairly certain you lied about your age, so if ever we meet again I plan to give you crap about that. Until then, Rest in Peace. Xoxoxo

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

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

 

 

David Pulice posted on 7/15/20

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

I remember parking in front of BCT to deliver props. She was sitting on the front steps with her brand new puppy and laughing like a little schoolgirl every time it wiggled. She had the best laugh, the kind that was infectious.

Ms KC, as I called her. So fortunate to have known her for some 24 years, and was just at Hedy Popson’s wedding laughing n having a few libations. She walked into my life when she joined my organization, The Actors’ Network and I was instantly taken with her. I don’t think I ever saw her ...not smiling. She just always lit up the room. I’m so extraordinarily sorry for you loss, She will be deeply missed.

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

Alice, I will always remember the times of discussion with you and Ken in small sermon based group. He had such a sense of spirituality.. His being called home suddenly leaves us hurt and empty, but we must remember that Ken is now happy in his new home and within God’s loving arms. May he Rest In Peace.

Jeff and I visited Pat and Betty in January 2020, and as it turned out it was our last visit with Pat. But, as always he was a dapper gentleman. Welcoming with smiles and hugs. After forty years of sharing life’s ups and downs, this special couple’s love had grown exponentially. They brought out the best in each other. A wonderful bond of understanding and respecting the needs of one another. Pat was a wonderful stepfather, excellent chef, and loved his Elks Lodge. He was loved and respected by all and we will miss him greatly.

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

my husband Emil and First Met Pete through Kiwanis. He was in charge of the membership committee and came to our home to interview us both. He was forthright, a gentleman and his love of country was made loud an clear. Over the years I had the honor to work with Pete in Peer Court at the middle School and ran into him there when we were meeting with our lunch buddies. Whenever asked how he was feeling or how he enjoyed a place he had been he always said “Outstanding”. Pete Erbe an outstanding man, with a life well lived and a rest well earned.

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

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

From our perspective Ken was a selfless man. He loved his family and he loved his friends. He showed his love by cooking for others. He would entertain all the time. Even when I took ill, he cooked and delivered personally a full course meal to our home. Kind enough to come to my mothers mass. Shared with me how much he missed his mom. Loved his kids, grandkids and beloved Alice. It was a privilege to have known you Ken. I know for sure you will be resting in peace. May God Bless You in Eternity Amen

 

Kathleen & Frank Fouche posted on 7/13/20

From the moment we met Ken we were made to feel like family. I have known Alice since I am 10 yrs old so we were already family. When we were together we always had some of the best conversations and of course the best food. What an amazing cook. He was more like a Chef. We sat at your table for so many wonderful meals surrounded by other friends and family and have so many wonderful memories. Your love for your family and friends had no bounds. You will be missed by us all, but your light in this world will shine on. You will live in our hearts forever. Until we meet again, our wonderful friend.

Back in our “younger CHIC CHIC days”, when one spoke of Mike, you also spoke of Glen. They were known as the “ PORTER BROTHERS From Reigelwood”. Both fine, good looking young men, always such gentlemen. Where you saw one, more than likely the other was close by. I don’t think Mike ever met a stranger, always had a smile on his face. Glen, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to you and to his family. Praying God gives you all comfort and peace at this time. I know our buddy Jimmy Kelly was rejoicing when Mike stepped over the River Jordon into Heaven.

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

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

 

Susan Everett posted on 7/10/20

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

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

Please visit Beth and your animals with comforting hugs and undeniable signs that you are still with them. Everyone, please raise your glass for this beautiful person that loved animals, gave back to others and made a difference to so many. She will be greatly missed... TO TERESA!!!!

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

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

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

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

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

Tim was always such an inspiration with his optimism. Rich was on the same hospital floor and went in to say hello when we realized he was only 2 rooms away.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kathi, I am so saddened to hear the news of John’s passing. Your Dad meant a lot to me and I will never forget him.. He was kind and better to me than.my own father was. I remember his smile and a great sense of humor. In life you don’t encounter many truly special people but John was in that group. I am a better person for knowing your Dad! God bless you Kathi and your family. You have a Father that you can be proud of.

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

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

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

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

Marie was a special friend to me since early childhood. She loved the Lord and lived her life accordingly. She loved to study God's word and loved to teach others and taught our Joy Sunday School class for many years. Melanie, Robbie and all her family are in my thought and prayers during these difficult days. I pray our heavenly Father will comfort and sustain you. I am thankful that Marie was my friend.

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

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

I had the pleasure of working with Gigi for over 25 yrs. at GE in Cinti. Oh., her easy going spirit made her a joy to work with. Smart and articulate, she could make you laugh or cheer you up with a few kind words of encouragement. She loved God and she loved life and faced its challenges head on, which made her the woman she was. Gigi, go peacefully into that good night my friend, we'll see you again on the other side.

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

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

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

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

In it ,they had placed an anointed prayer cloth for God's healing power for Dennis. Included was a special passage from the bible that speaks of the miracles that God is capable of. This will always be a special memory for the both of us that we will cherish forever. We pray for strength, peace,and love forJill, Josh, Rachel, and their families.

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

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

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

 

Randy Lewis posted on 6/25/20

I met Pastor Gwinn while visiting my mother who was undergoing cancer treatment. She loved him and it showed. When visiting after her passing I still visited the the church and listened to him. He had an effect on me even in California. He was a good man and I hope his family finds comfort in knowing he is in Heaven.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Uncle Jerry, We thought of you today, But that is nothing new, We thought of you yesterday and will tomorrow too.

Love and miss you

Part of me went with you, The day God took you home. Miss you mom

Glenn was as good a person that I ever was friends with. He was older than me and he would share anything he had with me. He always had a job and he always practiced two a days in the summer getting prepared for Hoggard football season. Later in life we played slow pitch softball with the guys we grew up with from Sunset Park and others of course from Wilmington. We called him Charlie Hustle because of his spirit in the way he played. I loved the man like a brother.

We bonded over the relationship the Bradon and my son had, I remember the first thing he said when he introduced himself was that he was my son’s other parent lol. He had a big heart and his love for God showed so brightly. It was an honor knowing him and the family. My prayers are with you!! Rest In Peace Paul

I'll never forget when my husband was deployed a year in Afghanistan and we had a tornado side swipe our home in Camp Lejuene. He was a little over an hour away in Wilmington but he and the family headed up the next morning to help me and the boys out. Our yard was a mess. A tree had blown over and up to the front porch. He literally chopped it apart and helped me clean up the property. He also made sure it didn't look like I had any leaks, just missing shingles. He had to drive around blocked streets to get to the house. His kindess was endless and he'd give you the shirt off his back. Miss you and your kind spirit. Rest peacefully my friend. Love you Charlene, Brayden and Brooklyn.

Carlos remained my good friend and buddy all these years since that memorable and fun filled night. I feel so blessed for having Carlos as my friend and in my life for the past thirty-four years. So many great memories and each loaded with laughter and nonstop fun! I will truly miss his great sense of humor and wonderful, positive attitude. Rest in peace "Babycakes"

Paul spent many days and nights at our home. His Mom, Wendy, worked varied hours, and Paul and Scot were often at our house. Ryan was Paul's age, and Kyle was Scott's age.Wenfy and I coached soccer for Scott and Kyle's teams.Paul had dyslexia---but was do smart!! He pretty much memorized the soccer rule book, and was a good player!! He was often responsible for Scott when Wendy worked, and had us help discipline a few times He loved his little Brother, and so loved his Mother! His love for Jesus was evident early on, and he was never happier than when he was helping someone. I spent a lot of days on Messenger with him this past year, and his Family was the only thing on his mind! We visited him numerous times at Duke, all he wanted was for them to be OK! Rest in that love Charlene, Brandon and Brooklynn. He will always be with you, cheering you on, wanting you to be happy! He truly was the BEST man, and we loved him!

Paul was one of the first people to talk to me when I started working at the restaurant. We immediately had a family connection. The brother I never had. Paul was annoying, crazy, kind hearted, and full of life. The day he married Charlie was the happiest I had ever seen him. He loved her and those kids with everything he was. The world lost a good man, but I know he’s safe and pain free with his mom. He will be forever remembered and forever missed. Rest easy, brother.

Thank you for the beautiful she shed office you made me, all the great seafood events you invited us too and for all the fishing excursions with my husband. You will be truly missed. Praying for Judy and Chris and Kayla and all your family. ❤️

Carlos was our chef when I worked at Bridge Tender in 1979 and 1980 - he taught me how to make everything from scratch from desserts to salad dressings. And he made us all laugh the entire time. It was mandatory! He impacted my life immensely and whenever I am preparing large family meals I think of him because it took him both years to teach my how to use a knife properly. Carlos lives in my kitchen. Condolences to the family.

We are so sad to learn about Carlos’ passing. We have known him for years as “Caterer Extraordinaire” and friend. We were aware off his long fought health issues. Heaven just gained an incredible Angel. Rest In Peace my friend.

I read the condolence that Precious Bernard posted about Paul and what he did from his hospital bed in setting up the parade this Saturday for the Seniors at North Brunswick High School. I have known Paul for 9 years and he would go out of his way to help anyone that needed it, especially for the youth in town. He has been there for my family and my children for many years, both of my children who are 20 years old and 26 years old now, have a special bond with Paul. He is just an amazing person. A mentor, a friend, a dad, a husband and most of all a Christian. He is such a special person and going to be missed dearly. He supported many youth kids here locally, going to their high school games and just being there for them. I can truly say, God has gained a precious angel and he is going to be missed so much by everyone in the community. I love you Paul and you will forever be in our hearts.

Wayne was a great guy, always willing to help with any project. He was a very hard worker and had a great personality, He will be missed by all of us at the car lot ! I was proud to call him my friend !

 

Precious Bernard posted on 6/4/20

I did not know Mr. Ford personally, but boy did he impact my life in a great way. While I was the administrator for the Adopt a Senior project in Brunswick County, he reached out to me and asked me to allow him to network with the individuals in the group to plan a parade for the North Brunswick High School Seniors. I agreed and little did I know that he was planning all of this from a hospital bed. I did not find this out until this morning, when I heard of his passing, and it brought tears to my eyes. I am so grateful that I was graced with his presence even for a short time, but even more grateful for the testimony that he shared without speaking a word; serve your fellow man! He served his community and was selfless until the very end. He did exactly what he set out to do, and now hundreds of Seniors will be celebrated because of his love for his fellow man. It was my plan to congratulate him on Saturday, and I did not get the chance to. Soar with the angels and Rest In Peace, Mr. Ford! Thank You so very much for ALL you did for the Class of 2020!!! Your efforts did not go unnoticed. My prayers are with his family. May God comfort, strengthen, and give them peace during this difficult time!!!

He was always such an amiable person who seemed to enjoy all aspects of life. I admire anyone that has the ability to cook great food, and to be able to share that love with all of many friends. He will be missed by us all , and will be remembered at our 50th high school reunion.

What a priviledge it was to have known Kat. Just short snippets during a quick drive to work, we talked of shared health issues and how they impact us. She was genuine and had a great sense of humor. She is and will be missed by those of us who were fortunate to have known her.

Dear Sherri, Kathy and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. I have many fond memories of being at your childhood home growing up. Your dad and I shared the same birthday and I would think of him every year. In younger years, I would call to wish him “ Happy Birthday “ and we would have a nice chat. I remember all your brothers and sisters, as well as your mom and always felt welcomed at your home. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. My Deepest Sympathy and much Love, Kay A Davis

George was such a kind and friendly neighbor, the Dad to one of my classmates, Kay and her older brother, Freddie, and a long-time active member of Alamance Presbyterian Church. I always though he had an interesting job working at Greensboro Coliseum, wondering about all the famous people he met, and important events he witnessed in person! I am so glad that my Mom and Dad were able to purchase a small piece of his land before they moved, to make a nice second entrance into our farm! Mr. Staley is worshiping our Lord now in person, beside his daughter, Kay!

Sweet Catherine....... I cannot begin to explain our relationship. You were so much more to me than a friend. We didn’t have to talk all of the time, we always were able to pick up where we left off like true family does. Almost 17 years of friendship gave me so much laughter, tears and healing but most of all I had an amazing human being in my life. Thank you Catherine for all that you were and all that you gave to me in my life. No one will ever know the bond you and I shared and it will forever remain that way. You lifted me up, taught me a craft that enabled me to support myself, gave me a home with you and your Grandmother in order to show me true unconditional love and help me in my time of need. We shared so much (even matching tattoos) but most of all we shared a mutual love and respect for one another that will forever remain with me. I love you so much but you knew that... You were the bake to my shake and things will never be the same without you. I know you are smiling, laughing and probably licking someone’s chicken wing right now while giving everyone your best Beyoncé walk... Sk8R done sister.. Shake n Bake forever. Until our souls meet again. Peace and love to her family and everyone that knew her. To her parents, thank you for giving me such a blessing. I am eternally grateful.

My heart shares your sorrow as I remember a really geniune and sweet friend. My first memories of Paula include that sweet contagious smile that many have already mentioned. Since high school, when our paths would cross, we were able to pick up our conversation as though there had never been a lapse in time. I know without a doubt two of her greatest accomplishments were her boys and no doubt you both feel the void of her passing... my prayers are that your sweet memories will help to turn your tears into smiles in the days and months ahead. May God bless you both with abundant peace that can only come from knowing him and knowing that one day there will be a great reunion day! John 14:3

Kat was like no one I had ever met. When I first came to the main lab for some odd reason we connected. She was a very quick witted individual that knew how to have fun and was full of life. She would listen to my problems and in return I would listen to hers and throughout the years we grew extremely close. We shared everything whether it be good or bad, her very first ferry ride to Southport. She had a sense of humor like no other. I was so honored to be there throughout all of her struggles. I was so Blessed to have known her and to be able to witness the beautiful marriage of Nick and Kat. Rest in Peace my friend. Love you up to God.

I am sorry for the loss of Jerry. He was my best friend and I considered him my brother. I am going to miss his weekly phone calls asking for advice more then he will ever know. I will miss his laugh and calling me a dumb ass more than anything. Over the last to years I can't tell you how many times he had told me to turn to god with all of my problems and things will get better. He was an amazing man and an even more amazing friend. I will never forget the night my wife and I spent at the house with him and his mom putting up the Christmas tree and decorations we gave them. I will never forget the love he had for his mother and the tears he had in his eyes when he seen how happy and proud she was of him. Out of all the things this amazing man taught me in my life the most important thing was to have unconditional love for friends and family. My wife and I are deeply sorry for Jerry's families loss. Fly high Jerry, be my Guardian Angel and look after me buddy, and don't be a stranger it is okay to check in from time to time but don't stay long because heaven needs you. We will love you for ever brother.

There is not enough space or words to describe Paula Jean, I have no idea why I called her that. Paula and I were roommates back in 1980 she always had the whitest tinny shoes. I would come home from work and she would have cleaned my tinny shoes to look like new. We sat on the porch steps many nights and talked about the guys who loved her but heart was always with Stuart. Paula worked hard and never asked anyone for anything. That bright yellow mustang she drove with her stick shift she was proud of, she told me one night on the steps, I sure never thought I would have a hot car like that. I remember telling her it’s because you are hot! She just laughed. Paula was full of such love she loved her nephew Dewayne, she was such a great sister to Steve and always made sure her mom was cared for. I remember her wedding she was the most beautiful bride I had ever looked at. Being a mother was her greatest love she lived her life for both of her boys. It was her greatest treasure. Paula was so proud of both her sons and she would say everyday I want my boys looked after please. Paula never judged people and loved everyone, she was very smart and worked very hard. No one ever met her and did not love her, when she walked in the room with that smile the room would light up. Everyone loved her. Being the strong person she was gave her strength to fight to live. I have never seen anyone fight the battle like she did. Paula loved life and she had faith until her last breath. I will miss her very much. I not only lost a best friend I lost a daughter as well. May she be at peace and shine as always. ❤️✝️ Love you Paula Jean

To my true Love and life partner, I have to say this has been the most devastating thing in my life. I have lost my Best friend, the love of my life, my cooking partner, my traveling companion, someone with a great sense of humor and a loving heart. If you needed a shoulder to cry on, or you needed help, Gloria was there. It's hard to just let go after 35 years together, I look at her picture ( the one shown) and cry every night, missing that beautiful smile and the Kiss each night before we went to sleep. This is one of Gloria's last text messages to me before she passed : Dear Heavenly Father plz watch over the man reading this message. I want him to know that the Love we have together will never die. We will Love each other forever. As I ask in Jesus name Amen. I Love You Honey

Our family is deeply saddened at the loss of my grandma (MiMa.) She was a very kind lady who loved to cook! She would often spread her good cooking throughout her community while she prepared a full course meal for someone who was sick or for the family of a loved one that was lost. She was a true Christian and a believer of our Lord. I know she was finally dancing again when she reached the gates of heaven! We love you and will miss you and I pray that you watch over all of us and keep us safe. Until we meet again...love Jenna.

Barbara- I worked with Walt at SSA 's Computer EDP systems on the Midnight shift back in 1968-69 when were gaining IBM systems & supervisory experience before going to day shift as Programmers. As an operator & programmer, Walt was always at the top of his game & kept things lively (just short of animal house) when things were boring & dull. We were all just a bunch of young mid 20 year old "hot shot" early self-proclaimed computer whiz & Walt was one of the sharpest of the bunch. I remember when we got off in the morning after midnight, whenever Walt was going out onto Security Blvd in his 1963 Chevy Impala, & he say me in my 1963 Ford Galaxie XL, Walt would try to get me at the stoplight so we could drag race down Security Blvd. Good memories of a unique time with a good group of guys. I'm sorry this is a late entry, but I attended a SSA Credit union "virtual meeting" where I learned of Walt's passing along with that of another previous board member and their past dedication was remember in a moment of silence. Back in the day, I used to see Walt in the Credit Union & we exchanged some memories of those old mainframe computer days, and of course, those drag races between both our 1963 cars (Chevy v. Ford). Believe it or not, I still have that 1963 Ford, tagged & insured. I can only now offer my sincere condolences at your loss but fond memories & good stories are the valued jewels of remembrance.

I always looked to Kat for pure unfiltered discussions, and she was happy to supply. She was so brave. She always held her children and grandchildren so close to her heart, and she was so proud of each and every one of them. I will miss seeing her and hearing about her family, and getting updates in a way that only Kat knew how to do. Rest peacefully Kat, you are missed.

I met Marie when my mother after her own retirement decided to help others who needed a friend as well as share time with. My mom would tell me about all their outings, lunches & many other activities together. Now and then I'd go to lunch with them or visit Marie when my mother was with her. There was rarely a time that I'd call my mother and not speak to Marie as well. Marie brought my mother many happy moments and my mother became a very close friend to her as well. She will be deeply missed & I'm grateful to had known her. My prayers and condolences to Donna and their beautiful family.

My Aunt Marie was loving, kind-hearted, prim and proper, the epitome of Southern charm and manners. She was a professional woman ahead of her time. She loved her family, was always cooking something yummy and shared many recipes with my mom, her sister in law Becky Clegg, which my family still enjoy today. I’m sure Uncle Hoyt greeted her at the gates with our Lord and savior. Donna, may you and your family continue to be blessed with good memories of days past. With much love and sympathy, Leslie

I first met Ron in college at Lowell Technological Institute (now UMass, Lowell) where we joined Phi Psi Fraternity. He was always upbeat and ready to support all of our activities. After college, when Ron was stationed at Travis AFB, he bought property thru me at Lake Tahoe and referred several of his fellow officers to me. I shared my reward as top salesman and invited Ron to Tahiti. We had a great time in Tahiti. As the years passed, I didn't have the pleasure of spending time with Ron, but every now and then, we shared messages online and I was happy to see that he had been so successful in the Air Force and in his career after he retired from the Air Force. I was especially happy to hear about his prowess as a competitive soft ball player into his 70's. I will miss Ron as do the rest of our fraternity brothers and of course, his family. My blessings to all whose lives he has touched.

Some of my favorite moments spent with my Granddaddy involved playing the piano. Every time I visited my Grandparents I would beg him to play with me, our favorite duo was, “Heart and Soul.” I was always off key or beat and he would tell me I was wonderful. Another funny memory that comes to mind was when I wanted to use the riding lawnmower to cut the grass. He spent a few hours teaching me every intricate detail about how the lawnmower worked while I sat there waiting patiently. By the end of his tutorial, the sun was setting, I was an expert on Riding Lawnmower’s and the grass still needed to be cut. My Granddaddy had a great sense of humor and had a very big heart, I’m grateful he is at peace smiling down on us.

May all who loved you be assured that you are not dead but merely sleeping on the loving breast of Jesus. And as we walk down that long, dark Road of Grief into the Light may we not grieve your loss, but rejoice in the fact that you are now at rest in your heavenly home. I am so glad I got to see you at our last class reunion. We'll all be seeing you after a while.

When I think about Spence, I remember many personal moments with a friend always seemed to be looking forward. Yet, I think he had the enviable ability to enjoy the moment. We met in graduate school, and because I went to school for a while in North Carolina we just seemed to develop a real friendship quickly. Those were fun times. When Spence lived in Rockville, we would head out to “the mountains” to spend time camping and fishing. When I moved to Pennsylvania years later, Thursday night Pizza at his place in Hampstead, Maryland became a regular. Spence was a truly kind soul. He never seemed to find humor at the expense of someone else. I am really glad that his laugh seems so memorable to me. Whether back country camping at Roaring Plains or small “brookie” fishing near Durbin, West Virginia, Spence was always ready for a little adventure. Among the best experiences you can have in life is spending days with a friend enjoying a passion and then sitting around a good campfire at night sharing memories of the past. Time and distance are hard on friendships and I am glad that we continued to talk through the years after he moved to NC. I just wish I could see his RV pulling into my driveway for a visit.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Jack's passing. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with Yo and the girls, and all of Jack's dear family and friends. I'm struggling to remember exactly where I first met Jack. He was just one of those friends that seemed to have been three forever, and he was there for you , and you knew it. I learned early on with Jack that if he did not agree with your views, he would let you know really quick, but he appreciated others opinions even if they were wrong!! Too many good memories to share here, but one that sticks out the most was years ago when we played golf at Myrtle Beach in the summer and the Fall. Jack quit playing on the Fall trips. When i asked him why he quit he said I can't go spend money on myself so close to Christmas, and still tell my girls that I can't afford their Christmas wishes. That was Jack.

Jack was a uplifter and welcomed me to my first Cape Fear Rugby practice in the Fall of 1983. He took me under his wing in acceptance of my 18 years old naiviety of the game and life.

My sweet Daddy, Words can not encapsulate how much I miss you right now. I would give anything to give you one more hug, and to hear your sweet voice say; " Now call me later now, sugar you here." I imagine you're walking on the streets of gold. I imagine you're flying so high like never before. I imagine you saw his nail scared hands, as that's all you talked about here on earth. I imagine you're finally in no pain. I imagine you praising the saviour endlessly. I imagine it is well with your soul. I love you Daddy with all of my heart. I'll never let go of what you taught me, to love God, and to always put him first. I love you Daddy. Until we meet again in glory, Your first born, Kan But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

I remember one time he suggested that we just take off in the car -I had an old Volkswagen beetle and I don't even know if it would have made it to Tulsa but he was game for anything and that made me feel good to know that he was willing to just take off with me just in the name of adventure and fun. I'll always remember him with a smile on his face and that certain look in his eye that said "hey what's next?" He always had my back at every turn, even when it meant he might upset one of his Bros, he did the right thing and was honest with me. I'm glad that he was able to have a family and find a place in this world where he felt like he fit in. I'm glad he was able to get out of Oklahoma too. I'm so sorry that he's gone and to hear he had a chronic illness. He will be missed but more importantly fondly remembered by all.

As I go through some pictures of Aunt Linda, I always loved that she and Uncle Bill were present for big life events and holidays. From First Communion to Commencement, Christmas and Easter she was there, her bright smile and beauty always present. She quietly lit up a room with a confident reserve. She was creative and a thinker. I admired her love of nature and the outdoors. She had a beautiful soul and a kind heart that I loved. Rest In Peace, Aunt Linda

I'm so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. I met Bruce in 2006 when his family moved to North Carolina. I had moved there that same year from Indiana and I taught at the same school with Amy. We became good friends and I was constantly at their house. I remember watching Bruce play Rugby. I tagged along on a family trip to The Outer Banks with them. I spent many nights around their campfire at their house talking and drinking a beer. Bruce's children are wonderful young women and I'm sending the 4 of you a big hug.

I miss my friend. Our sons played together. We were yin and yang. Chris was the fun loving, few rules, full-of-life loving hippie. I was the short hair, polo shirt-wearing banker. Somehow, we were like peanut butter & jelly - or maybe more like goat cheese and quince paste with fresh herbs and local honey. I will never forget the time we drove my Honda deep into Baja Mexico. I wish I could share with you in words the look and the expression on the border patrol’s face in Mexicali when she took one look at the two of us. Chris beamed with pride when he bought Chanda the Volvo station wagon, which they road-tripped up the East Coast to Maine with the kids. My parents’ house on the St. Mary’s River MD was their final destination. We all had an incredibly joyful fun-filled family time. Chris was sitting by the pool when my mom came out with a serving of her famous crab dip. He looked at my mom with wide-eyes and said, “Karen I could eat my weight’s -worth of this stuff”. Pretty sure my mom’s yellow squash casserole made Chanda‘s family cookbook recipe list from that same visit. Thankfully I am long on memories but my favorite soul-filling thoughts are of Van & Mason playing. The fact that we went from 20 somethings to the family men who loved our children, no matter the hurdles, makes me feel like a warm summer day. Like when you just get over the dunes and the ocean breeze makes it all go away - if for only a minute. I love you Chris and I am thankful that even after some (not so smart) decisions we were wise enough to always depart saying I love you hippie - I love you too yuppie!

Sincere sympathies to Kent, Mark and Cathy. I remember with fondness our many visits with Uncle Taylor and Aunt Jean after their move to North Carolna - first to Oak Island and later near Wilmington. Jean was an avid (maybe voracious?) reader, as evidenced by the many newspapers, magazines, and books just waiting to be read! Perhaps because of this, or at least helped by it, she could talk on almost any subject with authority, from religion to politics to health and anything in between! She was a very smart lady who embraced so many challenges and opportunities in life, and always with a smile, laughter, and good attitude! She and Taylor were always so welcoming to us. As long as they were able, they would treat us to lunch, and then we would have good conversation at their home, usually accompanied by ice cream! I remember Ruby especially loving to hit the ever-present huge candy jar on the way out. Our son Michael, and nephews Andy and Daniel I'm sure could tell some tall tales about their week-long summer visits when they were young. What special memories! Missing Jean and thinking of you all. Blessings and prayers. David and Sherry Wilson

I have such great memories of going to Uncle Bill and Aunt Linda’s when we lived in Ohio. We used to go out to the pasture and talk to Calico Kelly and play with all of their many pets. I wanted to be just like her. She was so artistic and loving and kind and strikingly beautiful. She made the world a better place. I will always feel a warmth in my heart when I remember Aunt Linda and Uncle Bill. I am so thankful that my cousin Kathy Russell was able to be there during Aunt Linda’s final days. Such a wonderful thing to do for her. She helped me say goodbye by phone. I’m sure Aunt Linda heard me and I am grateful to have had that opportunity. I hope you’re with Uncle Bill now listening to his corny jokes and laughing. Much love to all that knew Linda.

I do not easily relate to people. Attachment isn't in my skill-set. Chris was different for me. He was an easy friend who stood beside me through my painfully changing life, always with a grin. Years & circumstances have separated us, but he has never, will never leave. He lives in me. He lives in his numinous children, beguiling Sierra & benevolent Van. He lives in his love, Chanda, the most lovely & STRONG. Still, this hurts. Rest easy, brave friend.

I'm not sure how I can watch soccer without texting him on bad calls, or awesome plays. I loved your son dearly mama, and know deep in my soul that he loved you so much. He would talk about you with the utmost respect and an all encompassing love. I will miss him dearly. As all of us will.

The hole left in this world and my heart is huge from this. McKenzie was truly one of a kind. From his sense of humor and kindness, to his ability to be great at everything (which I often teased him for). I was lucky enough to make music with McKenzie that I can always go back to for a smile, and I am so thankful for all of the memories of just being in the presence of such a wonderful person and friend. And I can promise you this, every friend he has knows that he has a wonderful mom, which he adores, because he made sure everyone knows you are special! I wholeheartedly believe in Heaven and I know McKenzie is there, with no pain and surrounded by people he loves who left here first. I love you and I miss you brother, but I will see you again!

Wilmington has had a few people over the years, that are interwoven into every scene, every subgroup, every walk of life. Our area produces a lot of musicians, but few shining stars, out of the darkness. McKenzie was definitely, a bright shining star, who brought light to every life he touched. Our community was hit hard with the news of his passing. In times like these, we should all learn to be better to one another. We should realize how closely knit our community really is and that people like McKenzie Bell are the thread that stitches us together. His portfolio of music lives forever, but his genuine presence, along with the light he shined on others is the legacy he leaves and will eternally be remembered by all of us, here on earth...and in heaven. I pray for peace in the hearts of his family and friends, that we can take something good from this tragedy and celebrate McKenzie's life. I pray that God wraps his family in comfort during this time and reminds us all to do better, try harder. We'll see you again, McKenzie. Until we meet again....shine bright.

I ran into McKenzie about a year ago and he was telling me about his struggles from his accident and the one thing he said that will forever be with me was what kept him going, was his mom, she was his strength. Take comfort in knowing that he loved you dearly. Prayers to you and your family, his memories will live on.

I met Mckenzie for the first time in 2008 whilst visiting friends in Wilmington after I had been travelling. It's rare that someone sticks with you in deep corners of you mind for being genuinely so kind and lovely that you wish to carry that energy with you forever. Mckenzie was one of those people, now having not seen him for over a decade I still remember so fondly the time I spent with him all those years ago. I am so sad to hear of his passing and from what I have seen and read since I heard the news makes it obvious he had this effect on everyone who knew him. May he rest easy and peacfully.

So sorry for you loss. I had the pleasure of meeting McKenzie quite a few years back while visiting my brother, Pete. He had a great energy about him and you can tell many people adored him. May you all find peace and comfort in this difficult time.

I miss you CB........ Mr. B., my heart aches for your loss of Carolyn. She was a very sweet and loving lady that didn't deserve the disease she suffered from. I still miss her each and everyday and will never forget her. Thank you for letting me help take care of her and the time spent with both of you will be treasured always. Much love and many prayers for you during this time of loss.

A great person and the type of man that always made me try harder to do better, not because of competition but out of respect. I’m lucky to be a recipient of his “big ole hugs,” his strength, his passion, his kindness; is something that we all can take with us as to honor a great person.

 

Sarah posted on 4/30/20

My heart is breaking with yours. McKenzie is so special to us and no one will ever replace the love we have for him. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

 

Michael Benton posted on 4/30/20

Aunt Deborah, while life has taken is down different paths I can assure you I kept up with McKenzie and from time to time even shared a drink with him. He was a kind person with a great heart. Please know your family is here for you, praying for you, and love you. May God give you peace, understanding, and wisdom during this time.

 

Colleen Crossman posted on 4/30/20

Deb, my thoughts & prayers are with you. I am so sorry about McKenzie's passing. The special bond you share is unending. May the love you shared with him be a source of comfort now.

 

Janice Maruszak posted on 4/30/20

Oh my dearest cousin Deborah. My heart is broken for you. I can only imagine your grief. I see McKenzie still as that precious little guy with wavy blonde hair, full of joy with lots of smiles and laughter. Please know Jimmy, Ray, Teresa, Gary and I are a call away. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Oh, wow, Debbie and family! How it saddens me to share your loss of McKenzie here on Earth, however, I thank the Lord for your great faith! And now, this day and going foward, share in your joy and celebration that he is with Jesus - singing in the heavenly choir of angels! You are all in my thoughts and prayers! Love you so much!

Debbie, My heart is broken over the loss of your incredible son. He inspired me, pushed me, and helped me, since I first jammed with him when I was 15. I had the distinct honor of sharing a stage with him for 6 years and recorded an album with him and it was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. He helped me through songs, through relationships, through life. He was one of my best friends and I will miss him dearly. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful human in this world. I give all my family’s love to you and yours. -Ryan Kazantzis (American Americans)

Bill, then a young member of the Cape Fear Jaycees, was serving as a regional chairman for a Jaycee program when I first met him about 1965. He was the definition of enthusiasm then, and still was when I last saw him a couple of years ago. His caring and dynamic personality made him an incomparable leader and friend. Sara and I send our prayers and love to Maxine and Kinzy. .

T. Avery Nye, Jr. posted on 4/29/20

Most of my memories of Bill Hobbs were centered around an organization that both of us as young men cherished and strived to improve for the betterment of other young men and their communities. Bill led the way in the N C Jaycees and the Us Jaycees in helping them grow into dynamic forces capable of changing the lives of young people, their communities, their states and their nation. Bill will be remembered for the lives that he touched and influenced with the motto, Because We Care!!!

 

Louise McColl posted on 4/29/20

I am so sorry to hear about Bill. Payers for Maxine and the family. I met Bill back in the 1970s and what a good community servant he was on the national, state and local levels. I served in Jaycees/Jaycettes with him. He was an excellent speaker - when he spoke you listened. Again, it is a sad day.

I was very sorry to learn of Mary’s passing. Mary and I were childhood friends in Uniondale, NY. I have the fondest memories of her mom and dad, Edward, Carol and Tom. I knew her aunts and uncles and especially remember Aunt Lucy and Uncle Martin, Michael, Peter and Susan. We had a lot of fun playing cards with Mrs. Landers, Carol and Tom, going to Jones Beach , Tom and Edward working at the concession stands and getting the round ice cream in those funny cones. We played kickball in the street on Southern Parkway, red light green light and giant step. These fond memories I will always recall when I think of Mary. May Mary rest in peace and God Bless Bill, her children, her grandchildren, Edward and Carol. Linda (Lubrich) Waal

Mom.. I have been pondering on what to say and when the right time to say it. I love you more than you will ever know. I find myself on days like today saying “I need to call mom” just like I do every single day. This is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. I just want you to know that we tried so hard for your fight, and I can promise you we will continue to try. Please watch over us and guide us to answers. I will keep after Charlie, so you have nothing to worry about. Today he had my favorite which you already know Chick Fil A, he is going to become to love as much as I do. I still have every text since you’ve learned how to text and every voicemail “ Brandy this is your mother, call me back” is one I’ll never forget. When the time is right, Charlie and I will sit back and play every message just to hear your voice. Please don’t let gma drive you crazy and enjoy your time with Papa and Uncle Duke. I love you forever and always.. Go Tarheels ❤️ Your Baby Girl Brandy

Aunt Jean, I have many fond memories of you. I remember all my visits to NC. How hospitable you always were. How comfortable you made me feel and how we could talk for hours. Those were fine memories. You had a way of making me feel smarter than I was. I loved our walks around the block in Neptune or around the block on Oak Island. You were always a great conversationalist but also a perfect listener. I missed our conversations when you became ill. I missed the old Jean but adjusted to the new friendly Jean...wanting to know everything about me once again. Rest in Peace Aunt Jean. You are with everyone great! Love you so much, your Niece Marilyn

Very sorry your loss. He will be greatly missed. I've known Adam through his time in service. He was nothing but compassionate, a helping hand, and loved the people he was around. Noone could ask for a better dude to serve with. I wouldn't be who I am today because of him. I will keep the memories close through my journey in the special operations community that we both dreamed of being part of. Til Valhalla brother.

I am so sorry for your loss. We loved Adam and are heartbroken. The moment we met Adam he became and instant son to us. Adam always had us laughing (I offered him a belt one day and he said he was good, his shoe string broke but he had another. I said shoe string?? He said yes I use them to keep my pants up). We were so proud of him when he enlisted in the Navy and served his country. Adam will be so missed. Rest In Peace Adam. We love you!

You definitely raised them right and although for us it is hard to process life here without you, my prayer is that we all remember that you’re dancing with Jesus now. Prayers for comfort to all.

Patsy , Samatha and Ken, I love you all and Butch and I are so sorry for your loss of your husband, and dadddy. We loved Billy because he was always smiling or laughing. Butch loved to talk to him about hunting. As for me Patsy you know how we would go to the church dinners and cut up. Between you and Billy , you guys would have me laughing so hard I would either cry or get choked on my food. I loved seeing Billy and you at church. We are family and we sure gonna miss him.He was truly a Godly man who loved you Patsy and his daughter and son Ken. Oh how he loved his many families, grands and greatgranddaughter. He loved the Lord and we all know we are on borrowed time from our Heavenly Father. But there comes a time when God wants His children back. It was Billy’s time to go be with his Father God but we can praise the Lord cause We know we will see Billy again. I personally thank God for his friendship and the memories we all can hold on to to help us all through the difficult days ahead. May God keep you in comfort and innHis perfect peace and stay safe.✝️❤️

We moved here from Alaska 10 years ago. First chores: new doctor, dentist, Church and barber. Qualifications were good haircut, consistency and gift of gab. I struck it rich with Jim! Those 3 plus real family man, Christian, ex Marine, answered all of my questions about politics, living in the South, Wilmington history along with sharing feelings of everyday life and it's rewards. I'll see you up there and certainly miss you. Thanks for making my life so much better.

To John, the girls, and their families, my heart goes out to you. Terrie saw us all in a clear perspective, understanding what really mattered. To her great, compassionate heart, it was only natural to give of herself accordingly… and that defined her. When a harsh world made me withdraw for a time, it was Terrie who literally tracked me down. She showed up on the doorstep, without an agenda or judgment, just standing there with her sweet, gentle smile. Of course! She couldn’t just let a friend go by! And through a lifetime of grief’s and celebrations she was always there. And what is said here now only aims to ease the pain, hoping for some eloquence that would repay that debt. Not a chance!

I know it is hard when your precious mother is taken from you, but you can take solace in the Word of God as it tells us about what happens to a Christian at death and it continues to tell us all about heaven and the beauty that will be found there. No pain, no tears and sadness, no darkness. There will be joy in praising Jesus as we were created to do.

They will need a little push thru this anniversary. They are sooo trying to stay strong but wrap them in love. As for me baby...Nanny still just cannot understand why. I still am selfish and want you back here. Ash is thriving. I am sure you've always been right beside her. You brothers and sisters are becoming young adults and doing so well. We have a new addition Cass. You two would have had so much fun. She's a blessing. KK and Paw are getting married soon...so we're adding you Eddie, Traci, and Bree. BB has Toine and Austin has Tanner. Paigey is almost a teenager. J, Josh, and Ethan are growing up so much too. There's a whole lot of us. Bet you stay busy watching over all of this.

I have many fond memories of visiting with Jim every two weeks over a period of probably at least ten years. We were fellow Marines. We both liked to ride bicycles and did so together from Empie Park or we would travel by car to other areas to ride. We talked of many topics such as the car you bought him, your hiking trips to the mountains, his work-out routine and equipment, playing with your German Shepard, "Wolf ", our time in the Corps and many others. Jim touched many lives and left us all better for having known him, His passing is so unexpected. I will miss him.

Without doubt I know this about Jim - He loved his Lord. He loved his family. He was proud to have been a Marine. I was proud to call him my friend. May the Lord give you comfort and peace in the days ahead.

Shocked and saddened. Oksana , Marta, Irka and I all went to school together, along with their cousin John Stangret, and also playing soccer and being in CYM with the Owerko brothers. Her late father wrote for me a letter of recommendation to become an optometrist. She was my friend and will always be in my heart. I truly feel all of your losses. Try to remember the good times we had at zabavas and Round Lake because I'm sure those would have been her wishes. Take care. From [email protected]

NANCY I was sadden to hear the news of the passing of my Aunt Nancy. Many years ago during WW 11 my Aunt Nancy and I spent lots of time together she was 13 years old and I was 7. She had a wonderful voice and loved to sing the songs of the day. I also had a pretty good voice so we both would sing songs together. The one song we often sang was " Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me" I can still see her beautiful smiling face as she sang that song. It was our favorite song. A couple of years after the war my Grandfather (Her Father) passed away and she took on the task of caring for her mother full time. Her 5 brothers and 3 sisters provided for her and her mother. She became a homebody and didn't venture out too much. After her mother passed away she met the love of her life John Sorgente of Brooklyn. Her brothers and sisters were not happy with her choice since John was considered a ladies man and they felt it was a bad match. Many in her family being very protective of her gave her a very hard time and wanted her to breakup with John. She was not swayed by the family and went on to marry john. After the marriage she stayed away from most of her family members and that began the feud which regrettably lasted until her passing. She eventually left her husband and went on to raise her two children, John and ----------. Many years have passed and the one sad regret I have is that I did not reach out to her and bring her back into my life. I do know however that my wonderful memories of her will never leave me. I also believe that the Good Lord has now returned her back with her lost family, husband and friends, That is what I believe Heaven is all about. Aunt Nancy May You Rest In Peace With Love your Nephew JoeD

Elbert was a gentle man with a wonderful smile. Met Elbert, Pat and his children over 40 years ago. He was always the same! He always professed his love of Pat, family and his faith. Last saw him at Holly Tree. Will remember his kind words and smile. His family was truly blessed! Our thoughts and prayers shall be with you.

 

Marvin and Jean Moss posted on 4/12/20

Elbert was our first full time pastor at Friendly and he made the grade with flying colors. He always put the congregation ahead of everything else, but still as the authority God gave him in being a pastor. With Pat on his team he made a big difference, with Pat even beginning a choir that sounded very good with their leadership and direction. He visited me at home very often after retired, and I certainly am going to miss his visits. Our prayers are with the family.

Louis and Frankie Mae Saunders posted on 4/10/20

My wife and I first met Mr Bradshaw while attending Bear Branch Baptist church in Currie. We always enjoyed his preaching, but became friends with both he and Pat. When Pat passed, it was such a sad time in our little country church, losing a friend in Pat, and watching Brother Bradshaw's pain was hard on all who Dearly loved the man. Later on I began baking him a homemade pound cake occasionally, which he claimed was the best he ever had. Now I don't know if that was true, or politically driven to guarantee another, who knows. Fran and I visited him in the retirement home. He was always such a joy to talk to and spend time with, his life's experiences generated some amazing stories. He was a great man, Fran and I were most honored to know him, and blessed to be his friends.

I have a million memories and I can’t possibly find the ‘best’ one. Whether it’s NY’s Day hangovers in Lisa’s living room playing Wii with Tracy for days in a row, or when I first met her nearly 11 years ago. All the countless dinners we had together, oyster roasts, beach days, parties, and meetups at “da wing”- all of these memories will forever be with me. Tracy, I know you were so sad without Lisa, and I’m only comforted by the fact that you’re with her again. I just know you two are in France, Australia, or just in her back yard picking vegetables. Now your laughter and heart can shine on all of us from above as you look after all of us together with Lisa. Love and miss you always. “Big John” and Valerie- No words can heal or help anything of what you must feel, but know there is no doubt in my mind she is happy and safe. You were loved and appreciated immeasurably so, and will always be her wonderful parents. I pray for your peace.

I am just heartbroken and in total disbelief. Tracy, you were a shining star and a genuine soul who will be dearly missed. I can still hear your voice when you would call me in your unique way and remember how you would light up a room with your bright smile and infectious hearty laugh. You were a beautiful person inside and out and life will be dull & boring without your energy and loving spirit we all so enjoyed. Our lives were better with you in it and as a result we will be missing your essence of personality and life-force that so defined you as you. I thank you for sharing your time, family and great friends that will now connect us all for eternity in your memory. Rest in peace darling and rejoice in being with your sister once again, as we know you have missed her so. You will forever be in my memory as one of the good people of this world we have enjoyed but lost too soon. My deepest sympathies and condolences to all of your family and friends who shall remain in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Love ya kiddo, Phil

One of a kind has left us too soon

Years passed and we again connected in Silver Spring when Shari and Ronnie were young. While we were living in Germany we met you in Tauberbischofsheim. Then there was time in Occoquan. Each get-together was a renewal of tender feelings. Ron was a gentle man who lived by the highest standards. What a lovely couple the two of you made. Your friendship is precious. Someday we will all reunite for the big de-briefing in the sky. Ron is soaring on eagle's wings. His spirit is with us always. Sending love to you, Ursula, Shari and Ronnie and Jackson and Alexander. May peace be with you. Cheryl and Bill

I just learned minutes ago about Larry's passing. We went through grammar school and high school together and played football also. I remember meeting Larry in kindergarten and he invited me to his 5th or 6th birthday party. Larry gave me my first sports book, Touchdown Pass" a few years later. I saw him several months ago and reminded him that he and his Dad took me to my first collegiate football game in 1959 when we were both 9 years old. He said he remembered and continued to explain that it was Cornell at Princeton and that it was a 7 to 7 game until the.closing minutes when Princeton scored on a run around the left end. He always had an unbelievable memory. I'll miss my friend.

I hope he is dancing with the Lord today and breathing easy! Houston our brief meetings always meant something to me. I will miss you, but I am glad you suffer no more. Rest easy now. You will be missed. xo

I remember late night of Trivial Pursuit when Larry gave me "special" questions that I would know the answer to. Maybe I was 8 or 9. My favorite which he asked at least three times a game was "At what age did Shelli learn how to ride a bike." Larry, you were a great man. Rest in Peace.

It is with a Sad Heart that I learn of the death of my friend, Houston Williams. I have know Houston for many years working with him in the Funeral Profession. I first met him many years ago with I was employed with Andrews Mortuary. He was very helpful in anything he did. We would always have talks concerning his years with the Leland Rescue Squad as I would tell him stories when I lived in the Whiteville area, as I was a member of the Fire Department and Rescue there. I also enjoyed listening to him talk about the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. He would enjoy heading to Jacksonville, FL a lot of times to visit friends. I can see him now smoking that pipe. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mae and her family at this time knowing that Houston is looking on all of us.

James was one of the most knowledgeable nurses I have ever had the honor of knowing. Coming in for a shift and seeing his name under C2R2 put everyone at ease. I was always able to ask him to look at a patient, he always listened to my input and made me feel heard. Not only did he help me assess and intervene with patients, he always explained it in a way that I was able to learn and keep those skills for myself. That was probably my favorite things about him; that he always taught, he always listened, and he always advocated for our patients. Thank you James, for being a nurse I want to be. My sincerest condolences to his family, I hope you are well and safe. We all love you!

I have been looking for Mrs. South for years! I just now see this. I so wanted to tell her what an impact she had on me when she was my teacher. Mrs South taught for the Chicago public school system back in the '70. She was such a creative and. caring teacher. If anyone sees this and can tell me more about her life after she left Chicago, and maybe share a photo, it would be so appreciated. She was a very special and unique teacher.

From the very early days when new residents first moved into Autumn Hall, Ron was there providing a warm welcome. He was always available to smooth over some of the growing pains in the new neighborhood. He truly personified the title "Mayor." We will miss him in Autumn Hall and at the voting precinct. He was a get-things-done kind of guy, a patriot, and a true friend. Our hearts go out to Ursula and family for their loss.

Schon als Kind und Jugendlicher beeindruckte mich Ron immer durch seine große Ruhe, die er ausstrahlte. Besonders bei meinem Besuch mit Bianca 1985 bei Euch durfte ich Ron über eine längere Zeit erleben. Entsprechend in der Sprache der 80‘er Jahre war Ron einer der 'coolsten' Menschen, die ich kenne. Wir denken an Euch!

To Ursula and Family Words can’t convey my feelings over the loss of Ron, what a great Guy! Our friendship goes back many years and being chosen to be the Bridesmaid was a great honor and thrill. We had our ups and downs of life, but Ron was always on the positive side. Enjoyed my last Visit and the glass of red wine we had in Ron’s special place! You have done well and I am so very very sorry to see you gone. Please keep a place ready until we will see you again!

You run across a few genuine and authentic people in this life and when you do , you value that quality in them. Keith always was himself, which is greatest form of a compliment. There was not a "pretend" Keith. His straight up opinion and out of the box thinking mixed with a big smile and a laugh. Keith was his own person and I respected him for that in his life. My thoughts are with the Brigance family whom he loved without reservation, each and every one of them, and loved being a "Brigance" and all of the family activities and traditions. It was great to see him as a dad, and like most parents, looking and searching for the answers to the particular challenges our particular children present us with. I loved stopping by the store as I was going through my days and spend a little time talking with Keith. I always cared about what was going on in his life and was amazed at some of the solutions he came up with for many different things. I will miss Keith very much and I know his family will too. I will miss his friendship and his energy in this world.

Still doesn’t seem real, certainly isn’t fair. James was a remarkable RN; his clinical judgement exceeded many of his physician colleagues. He had an exceptional ability to listen and I never experienced him speaking unkind towards anyone. I expected to work years alongside James and develop a great friendship. My condolences to his family. The NHRMC community is indebted to James and his family and I hope there will be no hesitation for family to reach out for any assistance during this hard time. If it were up to me, we would name a wing of the hospital after him. Rest In Peace James, you will be missed.

I share your grief and hope that you can take consolation in having many wonderful memories of your lives together. I played softball with Ron since the day he entered the senior league, for many years on the same team. I enjoyed his competitive spirit and his personality. I often also saw you at St. Mark Catholic Church. I remember Ron walking to morning Mass and refusing a ride because he liked the exercise. We know that we will be together with our loved one again but in the interim there is a hole in our hearts and we try to fill it with the memories we loved of them. God bless you.

That smile is priceless.....we loved his smile and his upbeat attitude for life and family. He was a friend and with Ron you were a friend for life which was always a comfort and a source of pride. Intelligent: seems there was no subject he couldn't converse about. Athletic: between walking/running, softball, New England sports he had a zest for sports, Community: He was totally involved with his community and took pride in keeping it directed and organized. Politics: don't mess with him he was like a dog with a bone in support of his party. We all grew up together as we raised our families on Glenister Drive, memories which are embedded in our hearts and souls forever. We will miss and love you forever until we see you on the other side.

We spent countless hours on the phone and our conversations were mainly about Chase. I can not understand WHY you didn't call me!! I never didn't answer, no matter what time. I came whenever you asked for support. My friend just this one time why didn't you call me? I am so heartbroken as I am sure your family and friends are as well. To his family: keith recently shared how awesome and supportive you were in relation to his plan to move. I have no words other than for you to know he loved each one of you. CHASE my friend you dad loved you more than anything in this world! He want nothing more than to find the answers to help you. He spent most of his time researching, searching for anything that would possibly help you. I am so very sorry for your loss and will pray for you every day! I love you!!

I am Ron's cousin. He was older than I so my memory of him physically is vague. However, my mother spoke so proudly of him over the years as the great man he was. Rest with the Lord Colonel and cousin. Prayers for Ron's family. Thank you for your service to our nation.

I feel deeply blessed to have known Mary Dean, not only as Matt's mother but also as a gracious and loyal friend. I respected her immensely. Her devotion to her family and resolute faith was truly inspiring. I greatly enjoyed visiting with her in Washington, DC, and at the Dean Family home, and our lengthy discussions on current events, politics, history, and faith. I will always remember her charm, warmth, and intellect, coupled with the distinctive sense of humor and command presence that is only forged from raising five sons. Most importantly, I will be forever grateful to Mary Dean for the marvelous example she set, the values she instilled, and the belief she inspired in all those who were lucky enough to have known her. May the Lord welcome Mary Dean into His kingdom with loving arms and comfort her husband, sons, extended family, and friends, while we celebrate the life and mourn the loss of a remarkable woman and loving servant of God.

Mrs. Dean was a blessing to everyone she interacted with. She treated me like a son during my middle and high school years and I considered her a 2nd mother. God bless her and keep her in His loving arms. Sending love to the entire Family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

It is so hard to say one wonderful memory of Shawn, there are so many. The first one that comes to my mind is his HUGE gentle bear hugs he has given me. Every time some one now gives me a hug or when I give a hug, I'll fight the tears because I'll be thinking of Shawn that wonderful gentle teddy bear. I will miss you.

What can you say about a man who I looked up to as a nurse who when I called on would come and assist me in taking care of my patient in need. Always available to my questions. He always knew when I wanted to ask a question or when I needed him to do something for me just by the way I said his name. Jaaaames, then he would say what do you need me to do and he would always come for me. I always respected him as a nurse and valued coworker it won't be the same without him there. Your memory will live on via family, friends and co-workers. Rest in peace James....

James has been a part of my family ever since he and my cousin Michele began dating. I was so happy to be able to celebrate their marriage at their wedding last September. James was fun-loving, kind, a terrific father, an incredible nurse, and an amazing partner and husband to my beautiful cousin. I will always remember swapping nursing stories, karaoke nights, going to downtown Wilmington and the Fat Pelican, and the fun times we had at the beach house. I will also always remember how he wanted our whole family to be a part of his proposal to Michele at the river walk; he was so nervous before and completely elated after she said yes. James will be greatly missed, and whenever I hear Linkin Park I will always smile and remember how he would sing his heart out at karaoke <3. Rest In Peace, friend.

I discovered her love for her family, cats and the beach. Jackie and Joshua, my condolences and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Kind Regards, Cousin Laurie Johnson Smith

He was always willing to help others and went above and beyond for his patients. His loss to our NHRMC family is great. I considered him a true friend.

James was such a smart and caring person. It was a sense of relief to come in and see that he was one of the C2R2s for the night because you could go to him with any patient concerns and questions and he wouldn’t make you feel small. His family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. NHRMC will not feel the same.

James was such a fun & loving addition to our family. One night when my mom, sister and I were visiting, we went to a karaoke night at The Reel Cafe in North Carolina. James was so brave in front of our family when he performed "In the End" by Linkin Park. That was when I knew he was an extraordinary person. He really set the tone for the rest of the night. It became a tradition whenever we came down to visit. Aunt Denise and Uncle Ricky even bought a karaoke set-up for their living room so we could perform with top notch equipment. We stayed up all night singing and rapping. James performed his favorite Eminem songs with the most heart and zero shame! Michele and James did many duets including "Steal my Sunshine" by Len and "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath. Whenever I think of James I think of summertime, the beach, and throwback 90's jams. He was a phenomenal dancer, and chef. James made everyone around him feel comfortable to be themselves. We had many nights that were centered around loud music, screaming at the top of our lungs, dancing and moshing in Michele's kitchen. He was a dedicated nurse, father, and friend to all. I will miss him dearly. I am sending all my love to my beautiful cousin Michele, Aunt Denise, Uncle Ricky, Grandma, Grandpa, James' beautiful children and family. Rest In Peace James, we love you very much.

James was just that guy, when ever a patient was going bad and I would look up and see him coming down the hall with that quiet confidence he always portrayed I knew I could take a breath. I never had the privilege of working side by side with him on a daily basis, but the amount of knowledge, kindness, and patience he showed to everyone he touched is a testimony to the kind of man/RN he was. You will be missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, children and all his family/co workers! RIP to an amazing person.

Though I had lost touch over the years, Roy was my boss, a father figure and friend. I worked for Roy twice over the years. Roy and Leo came into Butler Electric one day and said they needed a skinny guy to crawl under a house. I quit Butlers then and there and became his son Leo’s helper. I would come to work some days and Roy would tell me to put my tools in the boat. Going fishing with Roy was not entertainment; it was work. I remember one time putting 3 - 100 yard nets off Fort Fisher in rough weather. For every foot you pulled the net in the waves would pull it back three feet. But we caught more fish than I’ve ever seen in my life in one place. This boat we were in was 21 feet solid wood with a flathead engine. The weather so bad and standing in fish, Roy handed me a life jacket. I don’t think either one of us was sure we were going to make it. Carolina Beach Inlet was impassable so we had to go to Wrightsville Beach and come in at the jetty. We made it. Great fish fry that weekend! Roy could do anything he set his mind to. He taught me more than he knew and he will always hold a special place in my heart! My best wishes to Miss Dona and Leo and the rest the family!

It is hard for me to believe when I got the message that you went home to be with the Lord and the fact that your Children and My Sister will always have you as their Guardian Angel regardless. At least one thing we do know you are with your Mom in Heaven. The girls and April will never get over this cause when you left a piece of them went with you just like when we lost Johnboy . David we all know deep in your heart that you always Loved all of them and still do but God had other plans for you and this is something that we cannot question we just have to trust and believe and hold on to Faith until they see you again. You were taken from them way to soon !!! Fly High Brother In Law until we all see you again in Heaven....

Amazing help when I was a new grad nurse. Was a big part of keeping many patients I cared for from making turns for the worst. You are dearly missed. Thankful for a nurse who didn’t try to ‘eat his young’ so to speak.

An overall amazing nurse and leader! I am so grateful for all of his help and guidance on my unit. I encountered multiple trying situations as a fellow nurse and coordinator and James always showed kindness and wisdom in critical situations! He was a person who stood out and will always stand out in my mind in helping me get through those difficult situations.

I miss my friend Shawann. We met at Holly Hill Hospital in 2015. She and I worked in the Children's area. Many times she and I laughed to make the long shifts pass. After I left to work elsewhere she and I kept in touch with a dinner, phone calls, and texts. She called me her "weekend warrior". I miss her very much. I love you Shawann.

I do not know of anyone who was more proud of their Irish heritage than CP. She was the essence of every Irish saying... Happy go Lucky... light up the world brighter than a rainbow and made everyone feel like they found a pot of gold when she first met you. Her laughter was constant and you could always find her in a crowd by everyone joining in around he. She was kind, generous and caring. She made everyone and every living thing feel that it had a purpose. When she reached in she changed your life forever in a way that defies dictionary definition. She was my four leaf clover. Till we meet again

Everyone should have an Auntie Mame. Mine was my Aunt Jackolyn. When I was somewhere around 8 or 9, my Uncle Sandy passing through on a business trip in San Diego, gathered my sister Eva and I and whisked us off for a surprise visit for our Aunt Jackolyn. Our unforgettable summer in Maui was peppered with adventures that will forever be imbedded in my heart. One year to the day younger than my mother, it was hard to believe the two were related. Where my mother was rules and regulations, schedules and responsibilities, work before play...our summer was spent romping on the beaches, hiking around pineapple and coconut groves and an attempted sleep out with the cousins in one of those groves...that ended when the night noises began. Camping on a beach with the whole family and eating raw octopus that Uncle Sandy came out of the ocean with. Coming to love, after the shock wore off, Robin and Barry crawling into bed with their cold wet butts after wetting their beds. The first week we were there Auntie modified our modest matching 2 piece bathing suits into what were probably the first versions of string bikinis. But that was nothing, our Auntie coined the “clothing optional” way of life. It became common place to walk into the kitchen for breakfast to find her in nothing but an apron tied around her waist making “animal of choice” pancakes for each of us....and did I add she was about 8 months pregnant:) My mother whom my Auntie referred to as Mama Kiki , even though they were about as close in age as siblings could be, had played the role of her mother as well. As daughters of a young, single mother with a third younger sister, it was simply the role my mother was born to and it remained her role throughout their lives. What a shock as a child to realize that “mom’s” could be at such ends of the spectrum. I remember lazy days on the beach, family grooming evenings when we all took turns getting our nails done, girls and boys alike, cousins lined up waiting for our turn. Pink polish, dusty pink, what I will always consider her signature color and the clean earthy white musk smell that will always bring her to me front and center. A particular dress, gifted by my Auntie that I wore my first day of Kindergarten that when I close my eyes I can still feel the waffle pattern of the stark white material with embroidered yellow daisies . Our connections were few and far between over the years, but always memorable. Another visit in the early 70’s when she took a cross country trip with our family sans her children, braless tank tops and embroidered jeans. Bohemian. Hippy. Long conversations as an adult -who knows where either one of us were; about Gibran and Conversations with God and her departure from their religion of origin. Mine to Unitarian Universalism and the Red Road. Sharing my first grand baby as we all gathered on a beach once again, this time on our Island of Topsail in North Carolina where she would later come to live. and leave this earth, Our feet placed on the sand in our circle of life eldest to youngest. You live on in these memories, the smells, the textures indelibly yours etched in my heart forever.

Nonny was my main support when my mom went into hospital and died 2 weeks later. My mom would wake up from a coma like state and tell us we were being rude cause we didn't acknowledge whatever spirit was in the room. On one day Darlene (Nonny) came in and my mom blasted her for not saying hi to Aunt Dolly who is Nonny's mom. Darlene didn't come often after that, it spooked her. My cousin was a fun, beautiful, silly woman and I loved her to pieces. She will be missed always by anyone who knew and loved her. Nonny, tell our heaven gang I said hello and I will see them again when it's my turn. Love and miss you.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Chad’s passing. He was the first person I met and shadowed on my first day at Ortho. He was kind, smart, caring, generous, and funny. He was always there when you needed a helping hand. This world lost a great person. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Bonnie, I was flipping through the obits and I came across your dear mother. I did not even remember she had passed. You know where she is. She loved her Savior Jesus Christ and when she slipped out of this life she was in Heaven with our Lord.

 

Glenna Butler posted on 3/13/20

Diane and Cliff, it is not supposed to go this way, but no one knows the hour that we will go to meet our Savior. I only remember Dewayne as a boy and after he grew up we sort of lose track of those who live almost next door to us. I always knew he was a very smart person. I am just sorry his life was cut short. I know you will miss him and I cannot imagine how you must feel. I know there are many good memories about Dewayne that will bring laughter and tears. I am praying God will give you peace and keep both of you well. God Bless You.

I was terrified when I met Chad. I had a back injury from caring for my late husband for years. It would flare up and it was finally so bad I had a back injection. I was widowed and facing my first health event and Chad was a sense of soothing calm with a warm smile. Somehow I came to learn who is Dad was and I inquired about his health. He was positive, realistic and encouraged me to visit him- how much it would mean to his Dad having a parent of a student come visit... Chad wanted our story too- how I knew his Dad. We chatted away and I fel better- there’s no nervousness or white coat syndrome around Chad- for sure the world has lost a great calming glorious man. I’m honored and humbled to know him in a moment as life offers so few vulnerable moments but we had one, although brief together. I’m thankful he was part of my road to recovery. My heart breaks for those surviving him-as a young widow with children in the home please always remember the survivors and help them survive and stay by them to thrive. Much love and empathy to you all.
