Dad, you are greatly missed. I am so grateful I was able to be w/ you almost every day for a month up to your going Home..I now know what cousins Raymond & Paul have felt like; it is at times an unbearable pain & emptiness...Dad, I am so sorry I didn't cry at your funeral, I guess I was in shock. Ron, Allen, & myself will have a lifetime of precious memories of vacation trips to relatives,hunting trips, and vacations to the Bill Rice Ranch...Thank God, father you raised us in church. Your commitment to Christ has bore much fruit...We are taking good care of mom. We will all see you again.

My dear Gaskins family, May God comfort you during this time of grief. May you feel His loving arms around you as we lift you up in prayer. We rejoice not only that we shall be reunited one day, but that we were witnesses and beneficiaries of this dear man's faithful life and service to our Father.

Dear Miss Lee, Ronnie, David and Allen,
It's been so many years since I've seen any of you that you may not even remember me, but wanted you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time. May God bless and comfort each of you.
