Service Arrangements

First of all, I want to offer our heartfelt gratitude for all of your prayers and support in the days and weeks leading up to last Friday, but particularly since Friday. Your words of encouragement, as well as sharing what Dad has meant in your lives, has made this process not only bearable, but a fast start toward focusing on celebrating his life.

Yes, we are sad and as so many have said, it feels like a huge gaping hole in our hearts right now. But that healing process has already started.

Mom is doing great. Numb, but already leaning on the great support group she has at Aldersgate. She even initiated lunch with a close friend yesterday. I admire her resiliency.

The Memorial Service for Dad will be at 1pm on Friday, April 26 at Myers Park UMC in Charlotte. A reception will be held following the service at the church. We will provide more details closer to the time, but we wanted to get this much out to you now since so many have asked.

As always we truly appreciate all of your support!

  1. You and family are in my prayers. I can’t be there on Friday but will be thinking of everyone and saying a prayer. God bless each of you.


    1. JoAnn, we will miss you very much. Your family goes back to the time Tom started his first Full Time Appointment … just out of seminary (from Duke) and you and Elaine were our first baby sitters, however, Mary Beth was the only one at that time. Bless you.
