Condolence from Pastor Matt, OBXNation Church on June 13th, 2015 10:38 pm

I pray peace on the family and friends of Tony. Jesus promises to comfort those who mourn. To all who don’t know Jesus as Savior, I pray you would reach out to Him now – so you may see Tony again…in Paradise!

Wow, Tony! We had some times together – laughing, talking, some crying…a lot of talking about Jesus and what He has for us. I was just telling some Tony stories this week with some friends..man, gonna miss your smiling face. I remember spending “Sonrise Service” with you this past Easter at the Ocean front…that was good! I know for sure there is no pain where you are and you wouldn’t come back here if you could – I thank Jesus that you are with him – that you took the steps to accept Him as Savior.

Iris, we were so saddened to hear about Tony. had not seen him in a long time but remember him as a precious little boy when you and Norman were visiting at Mama and Daddy’s in Engelhard. Mama died in Jan. of ’14 and we lost Daddy in April ’15 – so they along with Aunt Dell, Uncle Cecil, and Norman welcomed Tony to his heavenly home. We have no words to ease your pain but know you are in our thoughts and prayers and pray for strength for you as you face the coming days.

Condolence from Lucetta Rhoads Lea on June 16th, 2015 1:05 pm

Dear Iris, Zeke and Family, although there are no words to comfort you during this sorrowful time; please know that there are many friends that love you all and are praying for peace in your hearts. There are so many memories of Tony growing up with David and Stephen on Elijah Baum Rd, particularly the “vats” of Tang that Grandma Skippy fixed for them each day! I have many photos of the boys’ birthday parties. Anabelle sends her thoughts to you Zeke and she will see you when they come to KH. May your memories strengthen you and hope you feel the love of others all around you especially now. Hold your memories close to your heart. I will see you soon and be with you in spirit Thursday. Much love, Lucetta and Family
