Homer, you were such a great father to me and my siblings. I love you so much and will miss you and your silly self. I will miss calling and you answering the phone telling me mom is running the roads. Lol. Laying you to rest yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life but I know that you were a child of God and you are celebrating on the streets of gold!!! I will see you again one day and that is what makes it so much easier. I will continue to pray for your mom and for her to have peace. Mom sure is missing seeing you in that recliner when she gets home. She misses seeing you in the rocking chair on the front porch and you two sitting out there talking to one another. Life will be different without you here. We love you so much and can't wait to see you again!!!
P.S.- I don't know where I would be if you would not have came into my life. I don't know where my mom and brother would be without you. You took great care of us and loved us like your own for 20 years. You were my dad and always will be!!!!!!

Homer and his family lived around the corner from us in Club Lake Estates where I grew up. He and my brother, Ben, along with many other fun neighborhood boys, would spend the days together playing outside especially in the summers. Climbing trees in the woods behind their house, building treehouses with special pull up ladders to keep the girls out and just running the neighborhood. We were so blessed with that life. I wish all children had that freedom to live in nature. I have lots of memories rolling around in my mind and am thankful and blessed to have known him and called him my friend. His dad, Wilbur, was my dad and my brother's barber. We loved the Adam's family very much. My thoughts and prayers are with Homer's family and friends left on earth. He is celebrating with the angels now and healthy and whole. God bless you all and give you comfort and peace!

Homer was my friend from the day I met him 25 yrs ago. Homer had a heart as big as the state of Texas. I will miss you Homer my friend and the laughs we shared. May you rest in peace, and I'll look forward to seeing you again in heaven. God Bless you and thank you for the years of friendship we shared.

It was 1980 at Fort Polk, LA when I was introduced to Mush (Homer). He was a great Amy buddy and a true friend after the military. Even though we lived states apart he was always there by phone or Facebook. I will miss you dearly😘

Homer and I met when I was 16 and this was the beginning of a life long friendship.
Through all of the changes in our lives, he and I stayed in close contact with each other.
There will always be a very special place in my heart for him.
The Biggest Cowboy's Fan, the Best friend you could ever have.
I will miss him dearly and cannot imagine him not being there with his crazy posts on Facebook or those long messages.
I am so happy that he is no longer suffering and is healed and in the arms of Jesus.
Love you Forever until we see each other again.
Byyyyyyy-For Now❤️ Kay & Jon
