Prayers for the family. They went to our church. Didn't know him personally but his kids were in my daughter's Sunday school class. ~ Ella Cearley

 

This is so very sad. We saw him every morning as he waited for the bus to pick up his boys and then he would head to Jacksonville to work. He would always wave good morning to us. His boys are so sweet. Prayers for all his family as they mourn the loss of one of their own. ~ Valencia Rumbelow Ray
