Paul, JP, Nathan and Sam, Mrs. June and family, I pray that God's comfort and grace will bless you during this difficult time. You don't need me to tell you what a wonderful, kind and thoughtful man Homer was. I cherish the memories we had growing up in the Cypress Springs neighborhood and loving parents like Homer and June made it possible for us. His dry sense of humor and insightful comments at just the right time were the source of many a fond memory. Please take comfort in knowing that you are in our prayers. God Bless you, Ken and Anna Kelley
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Nathan, I am truly saddened to hear of your father's death. My heart is aching and hurting with you. Wish I had known and we would have driven to Ruston to be with you and V. I remember when my father died in 2006. I felt so numb and speechless. I have had numberous flashbacks. They are expected. I remember driving about two years later from Tallahasee to Pensecola (188 miles) and just uncontrolably cried thinking about dad. It will happen to you, too. Psalm 116:15 helped me along with Revelation 14:13. Honestly. crying is the best thing for you, now. Remember, Jesus cried three times and it was always at a death of a loved one. Elaine and I want to get with you and V when you get back to Pineville. Gary and Elaine
