She had a great laugh,didn’t stand for any nonsense and took her primary cancer diagnosis with courage and dignity . I love you so much and always will and promise to keep your memory alive for Hannah. Bill and I were good friends when I lived in Wilmington. He always made me smile and he always wanted to know if I remembered the pistachios on our lazy days wave watching on Wrightsville Beach. I did water aerobics with Frances the last 3 years.She was a true loyal friend and made up for her lack of family love with a sincere love of many Jay, we had some good times buddy. Jay , I miss you, just knowing that you are not here. Alton’s sense of humor got me thru many stumbles as I learned how to be a good lawyer. Daddy, I don't even know how to go on knowing that you are not a phone call or a 2 hour drive away. Can't wait to see you again and hear your signature laugh. She was always positive, smiling and laughing even when I knew she wasn't feeling well. I don't think i have ever met someone who could brighten up any room he entered with just some kind of weird joke and a large smile. Brad I have known you for a very long time and it saddens my heart to learn of your passing.
Chad, I know you are with the Lord, may your good and gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Just wanted to let you all know our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time! Doopy your mom would be proud the way you took care of your dad!
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:1-3.

Love Aunt Teresa &Uncle Steve I deeply saddened by this sad news! Please accept our condolences in the passing of Donna.
She was a wonderful example of a wife mother grandmother that we could all learn from her example. RIP beauticul one.❤❤ My condolences and regards to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
I love you Diane and you earned your wings to fly high and be well sweet angel. Pastor Randall and family, my deepest condolence for you and your family at this time. Aunt Janet always made a point to seek out her nieces and nephews whenever she could. She loved her husband & family very much and was always busy doing things with them. I only knew Mike through my husband, but I recall a fine and lively conversation about art with him and I am sad to hear of his passing. May God surround each one of you with His loving arms and give you peace and comfort at this time in your lives. She loved God, she loved family and she was so dog gone funny.
In CBP Falls Church office, we were working in the same floor but in different projects. She was an awesome lady and dedicated to our community.
Chad was very kind, soft, friendly and gentle person with every one in the team members. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Brad had a positive influence on my life and many others I know. May God’s love surround you during this difficult time.
I just watched the tribute video made for Jay and all I could think of the whole time was hearing the Bee Gees and knowing how much their music meant to both you and Jay. It has been a long while since we have seen yall but always thinking of yall. And I want you to know, no matter what the topic of conversation; the sincerity in his eyes, the reverence in his voice and the overwhelming love and appreciation he had for you, was ALWAYS apparent .
What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful man and his family. It was never anything profound, but always in Jay’s authentic manner and style.
My Aunt Jan meant more to me than just an aunt, she was my mentor as well. I cherish the memories of working with Diane at Murchison’s and the time that my family was within your church family. Though distance made it difficult to see each other often, she made sure that we got to know each other. You all have many wonderful memories, of her, to carry in your hearts forever. We have spent a many of times laughing about times gone by. I will miss you dearly but as you have taught us that we will be together again.
