Lar and Jeannie Girl,
Bubba's passing left a hole here on earth that cannot be filled, but heaven certainly gained a mighty warrior. I am sure she is dancing and rejoicing with the angels. May God bring you peace and healing during this time.

I love you infinity,

Caroline was a remarkable woman. She will be truly missed. She battled cancer with the heart of a warrior! She stayed positive and was willing to try anything to treat the disease. She was amazing and I will miss her.

Sweet Caroline...I'm so thankful that we had stayed in touch all these years and were able to hang out together in Chicago and Tennessee. I will miss talking with you, my life long friend, and hearing you say "I'm fine" in your sweet southern drawl. I am profoundly assured that the good Lord has you safely in His arms and that you really are fine now.

Larry Austin...you have been such a tower of strength to your sweetheart and have shown what unending love truly is. Bless you my friend.

Mom, Deb, Karla and Tipper...my heart and prayers are with you all.

Be at peace Caroline...I love you.

Kim
