My baby brother, I miss you more than I can say! My heart aches knowing your not here now but I know you’re in Heaven and have no more pain, sickness and you’re free from carrying that bag on your shoulder! Your happier and Blessed more than ever before! I’m going to miss you calling to check on me! And if I didn’t answer you wanted to know why, what I was doing, where I was and who I was with! If I couldn’t call you back when you thought I should have you were calling again! You worried about me so much! There’s so many things I’m going to miss about you, your hugs were great! You calling me buttercup, your dumb jokes...I could go on and on! You were a great little brother, we were so close! You’d always tell me that if I needed anything to just call, you’d be there for me. No matter what it was! Well Bo, since I can’t call now I promise to carry you in my heart and keep my memories close to my heart! I’d never bring you back to this old world, not with the sickness you had fought for so long, but I will be looking for you on that glorious day I get to Heaven! I’m proud your my little brother! I wouldn’t have wanted to walk to school (and freeze!), grow up with and share 57 yrs with anyone else as a brother! I love you (more) Bo. See you as soon as the Lord calls me home! Your big sis...

We want to let all of you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, now, and in the days ahead. Brian's soul has been lifted up and brought into the presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We are sure that his greatest prayer would be to see all his loved ones desire to claim that free gift of salvation and eternal life through a personal relationship with the Savior, Jesus. God bless each of you. Love, Darrell and Susie

My heart goes out to the Holt family. He loved his kids, sisters, and many friends, his grandkids were the light of his life, he knew no strangers, the day you called and we talked for two hours you let me cry on your shoulder, there was such a peace in your voice, and you opened the door for me to call you the next day, you flew to heaven, I never thought that would be our last talk and God called you home. I know you are at peace, smiling down and watching over us all! Your suffering is done......rest high with the lord...Your wings were ready but our hearts were not......💞💞💞💫💫💫
