I am so sadden for your loss of RC, it is a hard thing to feel the pain that you have at this time. I know what a believer you are and only God can have the real empathy for you other than a person that has been through it theirself. Love to all of the family.

RC, the Lord blessed me with but a few short conversations with you in recent days. Your departure has me in a daze. I felt his presence in our handshake and witnessed his aura in your gaze. Our connection was instant and genuine, that could not be denied. I will truly miss the friendship that has been interrupted in this divide. My wife, myself, my whole family, will forever cherish our time walking the floors and the grounds you and Martha so beautifully maintained. Our time here will be spent attempting to grow the same kind of bonds with the Lord, our family, and friends that you and Martha nourished with dignity and love. Thank you for everything and rest well knowing your darling love Martha is loved, cared for, and right where you believed she should be.

This man was the the most thoughtful and caring man I have had the pleasure to call my friend. During a dark season of my life, he was the one who continued to life me up with prayer and encouragement. His smile was contagious. .There was no task that was ever too hard for RC so he sometimes scared us to death. I loved Mr RC ! Martha I send prayers of comfort for the loss of such a loving husband and father.

We loved him like a 2nd dad. He has been such a blessing to us. Just knowing him and his dear wife, Ms. Martha has changed our lives. They have taught us so much about marriage, kids, and how to bless others. He has been such a role model to my husband. We are truly better people just because of him and Ms.Martha. You have taught us how to grow. We love you so much and will truly miss you. And we will always check and help. Ms. Martha...
