Memories Timeline


  1. Our Dear friend Worth was so special to us for a lifetime. He taught my parents Sunday school classes for many years and was always a wonderful example of what a Christian should be like. A true Godly man and an all American. His Lord and Savior will greet him. Great job my good and faithful servant.. The Kennedy’s..

  2. Gene Beverly and family, you all are in my thoughts and prayers! I knew your Dad and Mom all my life and treasured their friendship thru the years! God truly blessed them with longevity and I know they are together again!

  3. Mr. Lewis, Thank you for your service to our country and for your Christian testimony. May God richly bless you in eternity and comfort your family at this time.

  4. Gene and Family, I am so sorry to hear of you dear Dad’s passing. I will treasure the times I visited him and discussed the McKenzie genealogy with him. He was a true American patriot and a friend to many.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

  5. Worth was a dear friend to our family. For many years the Cox Sisters would visit with Worth and take him a fruit basket around Thanksgiving. He always greeted us with a smile and as we departed he gave us all a hug and thanked us for coming to see him. During our visit he always wanted to us to see pictures of his “bride” Lena. He really missed her when she passed. Worth will be greatly missed in our community.

  6. Eugene, I am sorry to hear of Worth’s passing. My mother, Lois Freeman Thomas loved him dearly and always enjoyed visiting with him and Lena. My deepest condolences to you and the family.
