    Rick,
    My prayers are with you and your family. I never had the pleasure of meeting your dad. But he and your mother did a tremendous job raising you boys, as it shows in the man you are today. Hard working, kind, always there when someone needs you, but most important, the Christian man you are today. I know how difficult it is to loose your father here on earth, but how glorious it will be when we see them in heaven. May God bless you all and if you all need anything, please let me know.

    Knowing Mr. Lamon has been one of the great privileges in my life. He was much more than a boss. Thank you for sharing Fred with us. I hope that Cookie and the entire family find great solace and a measure of happiness and contentment in your memories. He was a wonderful man.

    Dear Cookie and family, From the time I stayed in your welcoming Memphis home with my FUMC bell-ringing cohorts, I have been awed with your Christian graciousness. Working as a team “driver” alongside John at Mountain T.O.P. afforded me the pleasure of seeing the awesome Christian heritage you and Fred have given your family. Your church attendance has been cut back by the virus, but your church family will continue to surround you with love and prayers. God’s peace to all of you.
