    Dearest Vickie,
    Many fond memories of your mom and dad during their time spent at Trinity Baptist Church in Pumpkin Center. Brother Massey led me to the Lord when I was about 10 years old, and baptized me at Trinity. They were a blessing to many and they will both be sorely missed. I can’t be at the services but know that you and your family are in the Scott’s prayers. Much love to all.

    Dear Vickie, I have such wonderful memories of your daddy and mama during those fondly remembered days in Pumpkin Center where the door was always open and the coffee pot was always ready to go for when Brother Massey dropped by. He was such a dear man and I loved him as did so many others. Even though I can't be with you Friday, you and your family will be in my prayers and caring thoughts. Much love to you all

    Vickie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew your Dad a few months, but have missed his smiling face the past few weeks. I pray you feel God’s peace during this time and for the months to come.

    Vickie, I am so sorry to hear this. I have remembered the many, many good times that our families have had together, even the weekend of dominoes and canasta, when all visited Lonnie and me in Meridian over New Years weekend. He and your mother had a great life together, were such great Christians. My prayers are with you and the family tonight, and everafter.
