My guardian Pop was the strongest man I ever knew. He gave me so much moral support when I was young and was always there for me whenever I needed him. He will be greatly missed forever. Love you Pop!

I am so glad I got to meet Larry. He was a whole lot of fun in the kitchen, getting as many desserts as he could, giving quarters to the grandkids for soda's & never wanting to give up helping, knowing he was in alout of pain. He really loved his family, you could see it, it was all over his face. He worked hard & loved the Lord Jesus Christ. I know Larry is home now, painless, in the midst of Glory! Larry was loved & will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I will not forget working with Mr Carrier, I've never had to wait for a patient to get off of a tractor before I could work with them. 😊He was fun to work with...may you find comfort in your memories and the reunion to come in Heaven. 💕

Thank you Poppy for being a great friend and neighbor to the Woolbright family. Kaylee and you shared great memories working the farm, caring for the chickens, Dr. Peppers, Oreo cookies, watching TV, and riding around on the golf cart. As well as being the dessert “sampler” before we served the church!!! Much love to the Carrier & Stewart family!

Poppy will be deeply missed! Kaylee absolutely loved spending time and learning to be a country girl from Poppy & Mimi! Through this sadness, I had the opportunity to share the assurance of Salvation through Jesus Christ with Kaylee and Kenzie. What a blessing Poppy has been to our family. Praying for peace and comfort for the family & friends. Much love, Ashley Woolbright.
