Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 4Tommy was a little older than me but I remember him well. I’m so sorry for your loss. (2nd Corinthians 1: 2 and 3)

  2. Linda, when the word of your loss reached us, we were shook to our very core. Words cannot describe how sorry we are for the tragedy your family is experiencing. If there is a silver lining, it’s that Bear is fishing in heaven with Jesus by his side. We love you dearly and you are in our prayers.

    Ty and Kayla

  3. Candle 1Pawpaw Bear was the only pawpaw I actually have memories with. Riding on the tractor, scoping out for bunnies. He would always make me laugh. Mawmaw Linda, words cannot express how sorry I am for this tragedy. I love you & y’all are in my prayers. He was a good man, who is now walking side by side with the King of Peace.

  4. Candle 1This loss is a complete tragedy. Paw paw Bear was the best pawpaw and as his grandchild, I will always have amazing memories of him. I love him dearly and know he is walking beside Jesus in paradise. He will be missed but we will see him again. My prayers are with maw maw Linda and paw paw bears family.

  5. Candle 2Close friends at OLI, good friends in high school. What a great athlete. My prayers and thoughts to the family.

  6. Candle 2Dear Linda, you and Tommy always welcomed me in your home. The best duck gumbo! Watching Snuggy the Bulldog catapult herself all over the furniture! Tommy and Snuggy together now. Comforted in Heaven!
