Judy and Family,
Our condolences on the passing of Gomer. He worked for me for over thirty years, although I must say we really worked together. We spent a lot of time together working in the shop. And Gomer could fix anything. Give him a part and he could install it. No part,no problem. He could rig up some repair that would work. He could be stubborn and opinionated, but I could always count on him. I will miss him.

John and I would like to express our deepest condolences on the passing of "Gomer". He was an amazing man who touched the hearts of so many. He also was a wonderful bus driver who made us all feel like our children were in good hands while on his bus. Prayers to all of you.
