Vickie, Kim, and Jeanie--Our hearts ache for you girls, your husbands, your kids, and your grandkids duing this difficult time--but at the same time we rejoice that Daddy Gene is whole and healthy in God's loving arms along with Mama Mary. You know how much we love you all and pray for peace for you. We hope no one slips up and tells sissy Patt, as it would break her heart--she also loved him so much--and she has enough sad days in her condition. Just know that she would want me to tell you all how much she loves and prays for you too. Please let us know if we can do anything to help you through this trying time.

Dear Vickie, Kim, and Jeanie, and all the Family;
We are so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing, but rejoicing in the fact that he's walking the streets of Glory, hand in hand with Jesus on one side, and your mom on the other. Kim, you'll remember me from times when I visited my Grandparents, Frank and Ruth Walker, when times were simpler... just playing games with all the kids up and down McMahan Street. Your Dad and mine, Harold Price, were proud members of the Runyon Edition Boys, and my dad spoke with fondness of times in his youth with your dad...I'm sure they're happy to see each other once again. It's faith in these things that help in these hard days: That we will all be together again one fine day.
Our hearts go out to you all, and we will keep you in our prayers.
God Bless you.
All our love,
Gregg and Tracy Price, Patt Price and Family

I did not know Mr. Atchley personally. I know that he was a wonderful man because he raised such fantastic daughters. I have known Vickie most of my life, and she is one of the finest people I have ever known. God bless this family and bring them peace, knowing that they will see their Mom and Dad again in heaven one day.
