There were many Saturday night card games and bowling on Sunday nights, working together at the Post Office for many years. Joyce, you and Hutch were always very special people. Rob and I feel your loss too. Our prayers are with all of you. Rob and Hilda Tidwell

Elaine & Paul Lester, Savannah, GA

I was really saddened to hear that “Hutch” died. He was a really good person and I have a lot of fond memories of him. I grew up next door to him, and he became sort of a surrogate grandfather figure for myself and my siblings. He never got mad at us for hitting baseballs over the fence into his yard, and he always took an interest in all of us and how we were doing. He even let us swim in his pool a lot. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your familiy.

Tim Lester, Atlanta, Ga

I'm very sorry for your loss. May you take comfort in Christs promise of the resurrection, John 5:28,29
