    Please accept the condolences of Jim Harkreader, Donnie Porter and Bill Rotenberry. We are in New Orleans and have just learned of your loss and we regret that we are unable to attend the visitation or service. Homer was our friend and co-worker for many years at the Tennessee Air National Guard. He was a good man and we will all miss him. You have our deepest sympathies.

    I was surprised and deeply saddened to learn of Homer’s passing. I was honored to serve with Chief Sharar for many years at the 118th Airlift Wing and then for a brief time at Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. I regret that I was unable to attend the visitation or funeral.
    As you well know Homer was a rare person who had a wonderful nature. He served with honor and distinction. Please know that your family will be in our families thoughts and prayers.

    Colonel Mark Johnson, USAF, Retired

    Sincere condolences on your loss!

    I was a teenager when I last saw Homer, when I was a friend of his sister’s. I have always remembered him as a kind person, and that’s evident in the lovely photo journey – most of the pictures have children in them! And I always remembered his smile. He reminds me of Elmer. It was so nice to see his parents in the photos, and Gary. And I’m happy that your family got to spend so many years in beautiful Tennessee – my favorite place.

    This is a sad event; but mostly, life is beautiful, and Homer looked like he enjoyed it very much.
