  • Rest In Peace Dad

  • Time to celebrate the life and passing of a long time friend, may you rest now, no more pain and suffering, no more worries. It was a blessing to have you pass through our life

  • Kelli Beers (Gaylord's daughter)

    Thoughts and prayers being sent to you all.

  • To Mr. Hill’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from this promise that we can see our dead loved ones again. (Acts 24:15)
