  1. Burt was such a great man. As a child, I remember his presence at NDPC and had the honor of serving on session with him during J Adams tenure. He and my father, Clark Laseter, had a great time going together to DC on the “Honor” flight to visit WWII memorial. Burt, you are one I will think of when singing, “For all the Saints who from their labors rest” Much love to his family.

  2. While not having known Frank for long, he has made a huge impact on me. As an outsider he could not have made me feel more welcome.
    He’s been nothing but open to be, telling me everything about his and wanting to know everything about my culture. One of my favourite shows is ”My Name is Earl” and this show will forever make me think of Frank. The show has a great love for Burt Reynolds, and just hearing the name Burt brings back very treasured memories.
    All my love goes out to those that survive this great man, I take comfort in knowing his love will live on.

  3. My sincere prayer of Thanksgiving for the Life of Tom Are. He preached Grace in a new way to those of us at Shallowford Pres. A memory that most of the family probably never knew was that Tom would often stop at our house (across the street from the Elementary School) after driving his children to school in the morning, and enjoy a glass of orange juice with Al and me. I send my sympathy to Jean, Tom, Gene, Martha and Jim – and to all the rest of their families. Tom was a good man – may he rest in peace.

  4. Good morning, please tell me how I can listen later to Rev. Tom Are’s funeral service? I won’t be able to listen to it live as I wish I could.

    Thank you
    Becky McCaskill
