Sorry to learn about your loss. My prayers are with you. I have fond memories of him and your Grandparents as a child. Love sent your way.
Mr Sandrlge was a wonderful gentleman. Unfortunately I did not get to know him until he moved to Senior living. I was blessed to visit with him and talk about Jesus, heaven and of course politics. I asked him if he minded being friends with a Republican and he grinned and said. “Sure”. He was precious and I’ll miss him. Thank you my friend for being my friend.
My prayers are with all of you for peace. Mr Sandage was a good man and Christian. I know he will be missed.
First time to camp together it rained day and all night, seems only yesterday but we had so many good trips together. He will always be close by in good memories. One special person in my life and family. To his special family I you will always have a special place in my heart, prayer’s for comfort only God can give
Bobby was a classmate since 1941 and we graduated together in 1952 from Ouachita High School. Good friend and many good memories. Condolences to the family.
So sorry to hear of Bob;s passing. I hadn't seen him in several years but usually we talked on the phone maybe 3 or 4 times a year. we usually spent an hour or so recalling old times at Donaldson or Ouachita schools. He was one great basketball player and friend. I could spend hours telling stories about him but not enough space here. I will tell you about the thing i remember that you may not know, he drove the school bus when he was 16 for about 2 months because the man who usually drove got sick and no-one else was available. he was a great friend. Iwill miss him.
Remember your Mom and Dad from Bernice days. Both were exceptional people.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
