Keith and Sandra, what a smart and beautiful daughter, wife and mother you all have lost. I can tell from the photos that she brought love and joy to her family. Our hearts are heavy knowing the tragedy you are all enduring. No words are adequate. She is leaving you a sweet little boy and we pray your burden of care will be lessened by his love. Thinking of you, Joan and Richard.

I’ll never forget meeting you before you and Brent got married at the CIT training at the probation office. I knew from the start you were a special lady. We both shared the passion for helping people living with mental illness. You will be soooo missed. We love you sweet Kasey!

You were an amazing light in this often dark world. You had a heart for those who were hard to have a heart for. I will never forget you and your smile. Through all the years and phases. You always made me laugh. I won’t ever visit Rome and Berry without thinking about how much you love it there or listen to Buffet without thinking about you. I won’t ever think about golf and Chapel Hill’s CC without your face lighting it up and your competitive nature always winning. You were so good at everything you did. I’m sorry that we slipped away from one another. You have no idea how sorry. My heart hurts so bad and I know you are so loved sweet girl. I’m so sorry for what has happened. You will always be in my heart, Kasey. I pray for your family and friends. God is nearest to the broken hearted. I pray they find peace that surpasses all understanding. Rest easy, Red. The world is a sadder place without you here.

My prayers for peace and comfort go out to Brent, J.R., and your wonderful family. I will always remember you as a woman of purpose and determination; a Mom, daughter, wife and sister that loved deeply and without a threshold; and a law enforcement family member that made us all proud and honored to work beside. Your devotion to your career and your community is reflected in the awards that you worked hard to achieve and so greatly deserve. I will forever remember you, especially when I hear Ryan Adams singing or I am riding through Tellico on a sunny day. Kasey, your beautiful face and spirit will be missed! May you rest in peace.

From jail business to baby goats, and everything in between, we shared our wants, desires and dreams...I will miss that beautiful smile and glorious red hair, I will miss you. You are in the arms of Jesus now, no more sorrow, no pain. My deepest and heart felt condolences to the family of this truly amazing woman, I pray God hold you close in his comfort and grace.

To the families and loved ones of Mrs. Novinger, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will sustain and help support your families to endure. During these difficult times and in the months to follow. My deepest condolences to all your loved ones.
