    Gaynor and my Dearest Cousin/Sister Carnette. Our hearts were saddened to learn of sudden passing of Robert. We all were just together at the Burton Station Reunion and the Service Sunday at Ebenezer Baptist Church and boy did he enjoy that Male Choir. Carnette know that Joy comes in the morning. We are a Family of Prayer Warriors and we ask God to Strengthen and give you Peace during this season and days too come. Not only you but Robert’s Family. Robert cooked on that grill and everyone enjoyed. He will truly truly be missed with his GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.

    To the Gaynor Family. I was saddened to hear of Bubba’s transition from my brother, Tom. However, as we both reflected on our first encounter with the Gaynors in the early sixties, when we began our lifetime bond as friends, we both remembered how much Bubba made us laugh. He was also kindhearted. We even remembered when Bubba an Phyllis met! The list goes on. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you navigate the journey ahead.
