MICHAEL left a message on January 30, 2013:
I will miss Dewain so very much. It just seems like yesterday when I first met him. He was so warm and gave me a big hug. I always admired him and looked up to him even though he was my younger brother. I had to “look up to him,” he was so much taller than me! I admired his work ethic and knowledge in so many areas. He was so much fun to be around. He always talked about how much he loved his wife and kids. He was a special kind of man. A “real man.” I wish so much we had been able to have more time together. I will always regret not being able to see him during his last days, but I do look forward to seeing him again some day. I love you man, Michael Townsend

This was on Nonny's memorial... Don't grieve for me, for now i'm free. I'm following the path god laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call. I turned my head and left it all. My life's been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Lift up your heart and share with me; God wanted me now- He set me free. We all Love and Miss Uncle Dewayne very much!! Love Brittney

Vickie left a message on January 30, 2013:
Vicki this is from a card I recieved that comforted me, so I thought I would share it. "A note from heaven" If I could write from heaven, this is what I'd say, Please don't miss me too much, I'm with you throughout the day. You may not see or hear me, but if you're quiet and still, You may just feel my presence; because, in Heaven, there is free will. Don't worry for the day, it will come and go as planned, Enjoy each moment you arel given, keep worry from your hand. Keep sorrow to a minimum; For if heaven you could see, You'd know I'm safe and happy, I did not cease to be. Moments in time are brief, until we'll be together again, as Eternity lasts forever, our lives, they have no end! I love you Vick, love Vick <3
