I am so sorry for your loss. I will always consider Holly a true friend and Brother he literally introduced me to Masonic light. I apologize for not being able to attend Holly's viewing or funeral but my 98 year old Mother-in -law's viewing and service was at the same times as Holly. May god keep you close until you are with Holly again!

Barb and Family,

I was saddened to hear of Holly's passing, but am uplifted in that he has moved to his eternal home with our God. His life as I read, was full of life and love for others. When I read of our classmates, it brings back many memories and reminds me of how quickly time flies and how easy it is to let the pages of life turn. I am sorry to say, Barb (and Patty) that we have not had time together since high school, but know my heart is full of love for you and your family and may God fill the emptiness with peace and surround you with friends and family.

My immediate memory of Holly is his sweet smile and caring nature. Another visual that comes to mind is the drawing of him in the Flashback (our yearbook ) where he is running during a track event.
As I read the abbreviated version of his life story, it seems he enjoyed a productive career and spent many hours serving the community and our children.
Although I am not able to be there to hug you in person, please know that I am thinking of you and pray that God will wrap you in heavenly hugs.
Love from your birthday twin, Elaine
