Our hearts are saddened with the loss of your father, you shared many stories of your father while you grew up and him teaching you how grow into manhood. Even though we did not have a chance to meet him in person knowing how his son turned out showed how great the man lived and how he will continue to live through his children and grandchildren. Our prayerful minds will be with you and your family in this time of life's changes. Your friends and work family here at FMS.

I sincere wishes and prayers are sent to the family of Jack Compton. I grew up with Karen as a child and feel her loss as Jack was a very kind and outdoors kind of man. I regret that Im not making the wake, but my legs and feet have been swelling very badly for weeks now which is making it difficult to walk. Im just down the road if theres anything I can do to help the family in this time of need ? Barry G. Martin Ridgeway, Va.
