On behalf of the entire Roberts family, our condolences to the Chandler family on the loss of Mr. Chandler. Many a fond memory were brought to mind upon hearing of his passing and my conversation with Andy. And on behalf of the BCS Eagles, thanks for the iced towels and mean pills. God speed.

Priss and Family...

I was deeply saddened to hear of Harvey's passing. My sister, Cathy Huffines, forwarded the emails she received from George Hearn, and Bill House let me know he had passed away.

Our loss is a celebrated addition in Heaven, and I know my Mom and Dad were there to welcome him home.

Please know that my prayers have been with you and your family during this very difficult time.
