Ron and I want to express our sorrow for your loss. God blessed us to serve with your family for so many years. Ron and Denzil always loved to pick on each other. He had such a great sense of humor and was a great servant for our Lord Jesus. We loved all the church services and events that we got to share with him and your family. Praying for a peace for you all that can only come from God.

I came to know Mr. Wethington thru work at the Spencer Co. Conservation District. It was not long until I considered him a friend. He was very kind and giving. He would share his day old treats that he picked up for his animals, even making a special stop to share. I never saw him without a smile on his face. My prayers for the family, May God bring comfort and peace into your life. May he replace your grief with lots of wonderful memories.

Denzil was one of the best men I've ever known. It was a pleasure to live next door to him for many years. He taught my kids many things as they grew knowing him. He was like a grandfather to them. We will all miss him greatly.

Pa was a rock in my childhood. When I first ventured to Unity at the age of 11 he welcomed me with open arms. He always had a kind word and a shoulder to cry on. Pa was such an amazing man of God. I'll never forget when I came to him and told him I wanted to get married. He was so lovingly strict about it. I will never forget this man. I am so saddened by his death, but joyous he is walking the Heavenly streets. See ya later, Pa.

Please know that I pray for the God of all peace bring grace and comfort in your sorrow and that you look forward to the day that you can be reunited with him again!

In Him,
