Saying this for myself as well as my family.. I wish to express the deepest of sympathy to the family of Luvern Blair. We spent many happy hours together as a family down at the catfish lake across from your home. IT is where both my children caught their first fish. IF they were here tonight, they would wish that I say this for them, Jack and Bobbie Jo Still really did love you all so much. Jack spent many hours with us down there fishing. I am so glad that I took the time to personally stop at your mailbox that day and tell you who I was and the smiles that came across both of your faces when you remembered me as a small child and teenager was such delight to see in your eyes. It is with the deepest of sorrow that I post this to your family. There is one thing that I find comfort in losing so many family members of my own is that they are in the midst of the Keeper of the Stars.. They all are tonight. Peace and may God's love abide with you and give you comfort at this time of sorrow.A man with many friends and loved ones. He lies in peaceful stillness .. GOD Bless you..
