    Cousins, Anthony and Rhonda,
    I”m sorry to hear of Uncle Thomas’s passing. I have fond memories of our childhoods with you and Uncle Thomas. My brother Gerald Knox Honey died a year ago today. I miss them both.
    Love you all,

    Anthony, so sorry to hear of your dad passing. He was a sweet man. You were a good son to go visit him every day. I can still see him sitting playing bingo. Prayers for you and your family.

    Anthony, We enjoyed Mr. Honey’s visits at the Wednesday night singings at Donalson. He was popular with his fellow residents in assisted care. They worried about him and always encouraged him to go. He was a fine gentleman and will be missed greatly.
