    To all of the family I am so sorry for your loss. I have been knowing Homer for more years that I like to think about. He and my mom worked together at Smith Steel in Dumas and I think that he and Raymond gave her a pretty hard time ( all in good fun of course)
    Homer was a good man who loved his children and liked to brag on them when I had time to listen.
    I pray for you all to have comfort and peace that can only come from our Lord and Savior.
