I work with Patty Maples and I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Mr Acuff. It touched me especially because I had to let my Dad go a little over a year ago. Although it is very painful to say good bye, just remember that he will always have a special place in your heart. No one can ever take away all the wonderful memories all of you must have. Please know that all of you are in my prayers and may God give you comfort during this time. He will. All you have to do is ask. Love in Christ, JoAnn Moore

Please accept my sympathy on the death of Keith. I am a distant relative. I enjoyed many hours with Bun and Isophene whenever my family visited Knoxville. I loved walking up to Keith and Mildred's home from Bun and Isophene's home. My mother was Naomi Suffridge Fawbush, her parents were Andrew and Roxie Hipsher Suffridge. Patti Fawbush Webb
