It is with a heavy heart that I learned of Mr. Copelan's passing. Where we were acquaintances for only a brief time, Mr. Copelan made me feel as if I were a long time friend. His demeanor was always most pleasant and spoke volumes of his raising. A finer gentleman will be difficult to find.

Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of Mr. Copelan.

Daddy: You are going to be greatly missed. If I had one wish I wish I could have one more day with you. You taught me a lot over my 55 years. Like how to put up a fence, dig a post hole, drive a tractor, and ride a horse. You let me drive your 54 Ford Station Wagon and grind the gears, helped plant the garden and all those other great things I learned from you. You taught Josh and Robert so much and along with David and I, they will miss you greatly. You lived your life to the fullest and enjoyed every minute of it. God must have really needed a special angel. I love you Daddy and will always miss you. Don't worry about mama, she will be fine.

Your daughter,

Your family is in my prayers in the loss of your beloved father, Jan. I know he was very proud of his family and loved you all very much. He was certainly thankful to have such a loving and caring daughter. I pray the peace of Christ will surround you and your family in this sad time. The merit of a man can be seen in his legacy, and you are a truly fine legacy. I give thanks and praise to God for your father's long life and for the good he leaves in this world.

With love, Di Johnson

After I heard that  Mr Norris pass away I started thinking, I can't remember not knowing him or Mrs Hazel. They have been a wonderful and special part of my life, my entire life. Many things is our lives change and few are constant. Mr Norris was a constant. He was warm, loving, always there for all of us with that beautiful smile. He will be so missed in all our lives. My love to all, y'all are in our thoughts and prayers.

We were so sorry to hear about Copelan.  Roger and I loved him.  He was a good man and a friend to both of us.  For years he was Roger's assistant every week-end with all types of jobs.  They both seemed to enjoy spending the time together.  We will cherish our wonderful memories of him.
