Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel….. although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow; may looking back in memory help comfort your tomorrow. May God keep you in His warmest and comforting embrace…..... The Zee Family

Don and Sherry...I am so sorry to hear of Rex's passing. One of my best times with Rex was us going out for a coke and just hanging out the last night before I went into the Army when I was drafted way back in 1966. I have great memories of riding around town in his T-bird, too. He was really a great guy.

We were very sorry to hear about Rex. My husband introduced me to him when we first met back in the late 70's. He was always asking about us and our boys as the years passed. He was such a great and caring person. He was loved and will be missed.

I am so sad to hear of Rex's passing. We were "running" buddies back in the '60's along with my sister, Jill, Richard Brinkley, Jimmy Baugh & Herschel Moore. I remember Saturday nights at my house watching the Late Night scary movie & my mom popping popcorn for us. Rex, Jimmy, Richard & Herschel got caught wrapping our house one evening (all in fun) & my mom stood watch over them while they cleaned up the mess. I always had a little crush on Rex but, he was so quiet & kind of shy. I don't think he ever knew. Don, I got to meet you at Marie & Rita Guidry's father's funeral. I think I asked you to say hello for me or at least, I hope I did. I have wonderful memories of fun times with Rex & the gang. He was a great guy & a good friend.

Don, Sherry and family,
I wanted you to know I am sorry to hear about Rex and I am thinking of you and sending a prayer your way. Rex used to be one of our buddies when we were hanging out at Trainer's, back in the day. God bless. Know that he is at peace. Marie Guidry
