I just drove over a bridge and saw it was named for you. I did a quick search and found all the lovely thoughts from your family and all of those lives you touched. I never knew you, but I am thankful I drove across your bridge today.

Even after all these years, I am still proud of your service. I wish you could have had the chance to meet my wife and daughter. You taught me how to drive a car and ride a motorcycle. I miss those days. Love you, always.

Trooper Vernon and I grew up in the same coal mining town Caretta, WV. We started at he the same elementary school Caretta One-Room Elementary School and graduated from Big Creek High School in 1974. She would be my first pick for the pick up basketball game because she would play defense and could shoot. She was always a dedicated person that took pride in what ever task that came before her. Our families were close.

Rest In Peace !!!

Every day since you left us has been hard! I hear your laughter in my ears, I see your smiles in my mind, but more than these...I feel the love in my heart that we shared as we grew. Although you have journeyed before us, I pray to God that one day we will again see your smiling face! Only God knows why you left us so soon, our faith in him gives my heart peace knowing that all is well with you.

It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since I have heard your voice. I have grown into the man that you told me I would become. Although you are not physically here, I carry a piece of you with me everyday. I thank God for the memories that I have of you. May the peace of God be with you, until we meet again.

I miss you Aunt Jackie. Although many years have passed since you joined the ancestors, it doesn't get easier. But I know you are employed by the Lord now doing his work from heaven-probably on his security force protecting us on earth.
