Praying for you all during your moment of sadness. My prayer is that the Lord of all comfort will bring you a peace that "passes all understanding," just as His Word promises. I do not have memories of Mr. Tyree, however I do know several family members and I would like you all to know that I am in mourning (because you are family to me) right along with you! Much love, and many blessings to you now and always!

My previous memory should day "He is now healed ". Misprint says "not healed'. He is healed and in the presence of God.

Homer was a very special uncle. I have many memories of him with our family and at church. A servant of God. My sympathy to all his family. He is not healed and in the presence of God. Love and prayers.
