I am so sorry for all your going through. He was a wonderful man, and a wonderful grandfather to Meredith. He fought a hard fight and is no longer hurting. May peace come to all of you.

All my love,

CB was one of God’s special people – if you met him you were his friend. If you knew him for 50+ years, you felt like very good friends.
Sara, we are truly sorry for your loss…we are all going to miss him – a lot.

Sarah, C.B was a kind, loving friend and will be missed greatly. I worked for him at SEER and then we all moved to HQs and I visited with him many times. He was a great boss and an even greater friend. I just attended an AREA meeting and had asked some of my co-workers there if they ever heard from him. So sorry I didn’t know he was sick and sorry for your loss. We had talked about you and he coming to Alabama for a visit, sure wish I could have met you. God Bless you and your family.
