  1. My heart goes out to you all. Love, Meg

  2. I both rejoice in his release and mourn for the very large hole his passing leaves in your life. He loved God, his family and his country fiercely. He spoke of those things often. My prayers are with you all. I will dearly miss Mr. Hester (as I can here him say “Well, its not like I’ll never see you again. I’m just going to be in heaven). He was a good man, that I loved dearly. I will cherish my memories of him until its time for him to lecture me again!

  3. I am truly terribly sorry to hear of Mr. Hester’s passing. He was such a compassionate man–he treated me and my family like family when we lived next door to him. I will never forget him or his wonderful family.

  4. Love and prayers to your family. Cherish your sweet memories. We are thinking of you, Dona Brenner, Rusty Brenner and Leslie Brenner Jinkins.

  5. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please be comforted by the promise that one day soon death, mourning, and pain will be gone from the earth forever. (Revelation 21:4)
    Until that time, may the love and support of family and friends help to ease the pain of your loss.

  6. So sorry your loss from Ruth, David and Connie Wilson
