Deannie, I learned to love and respect both your parents when I taught next door to them briefly. No one will ever know how patient and kind Mr. Holder was with people whom others neglected. They would trail into his office at noon just to talk when he and your mother were having lunch. And I think all left far better off. I once walked in on a girl's telling him that her boyfriend had broken up with her for another girl 5-6 months earlier. He had called her the night before to tell her he really loved her, not the other girl. He was in jail and needed bail money and asked her to supply it. "Do you think he REALLY loves me? Or just wants the bail money?" she asked seriously. Your father treated the question as a serious one and talked her through to the only reasonable conclusion. He told her she was a fine young woman and deserved better. She brightened and said, "I'd not thought of that" and assured him she would not take any more calls from him. I suspect she kept her word. But conversations like that happened every day in that office. I came to admire your parents greatly. Without them, CCS would likely never have materialized. They brought Farmerville to Ruston. They taught both my children. I loved and admired both of them. The world will be lesser without them. Know I think of you often and especially now.

To Lenece and Deanie and the entire Holder family, your Dad and Mom were both caring and wonderful teachers. I in no way had any artistic ability, however, Mr and Mrs Holder made art fun and interesting. I was blessed to have learned so much from them in the “art building “ at Cedar Creek. Great wisdom obtained about photography. God Bless

To Lenece and family...what memories! my boys were always quoting Mr. Holder. You are blessed with the knowledge that your parent led others to the better way of life...God bless each of you as you adjust to the path ahead without him....

Mr. Holder was my scout leader. He taught me many things as a young man. What I remember most was his love of the outdoors. He was of another time, but also ahead of his time (I hope that makes sense to you). I remember the old Buicks that he had and the trailer he lived in. Mr. Holder gave me some work one year,, clear up around his place with a sling blade, to help me make money for Boy Scout Camp. If everyone lived life like him, the world would be a better place. Good bye, Sir, I wish I could have told you “thank you” for having a positive impact on my like.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My heart is broken for the loss of this wonderful and talented human-being. My mentor, teacher of life lessons, art, photography, and whatever else he or I felt was needed. Mr. Holder was the singular reason I enjoyed going to school, he gave me direction and a passion for all things interesting and beautiful in the world. His presence on this earth will be missed, but God has lit up the heavens by bringing him home. My deepest condolences to his family. I am praying that you find peace of mind and comfort.
