I am sorry I want able to attend your funeral. The distance between us has seperated us. I will miss you Poppie. I remember playing with your model plane and you telling me how parts of it worked. Thank your for the sacrifice you made from 1951 to 1971. I will forever miss you. Much love -Great Grand Child Maddox Epperly

My dear “Uncle Bob Creed,” how much we will miss you here on this earth, but now you’re with our eternal Father in heaven. I can see you in the midst of my mind with my beloved “Nannie,” Mary Ellen Roop, Uncle Johnny, and Uncle Kenny. My only sadness is I can’t sit in your Kitchen, and talk to you about things, when poor health and distance has separated us, but not in our hearts. I heard you liked the little truck with the treats I ordered for you. I was going to call you, and the Lord took you home. He needed his Angel, Uncle Bob , to meet the ones he helped in the pearly gates previously, and tend to the new Church with his podium made of gold, roses in t...he courtyard and fountains of beauty. . Dry your tears my sweet Aunt Jackie, Bob is now home, the one that counts, no more funerals to officiate, no more sadness or sickness, nor pain. just meetings of joy for the rest of us family and others to be welcomed to our new heavenly home of grace. .Rest in peace, sweet “Uncle Bob”” I feel your gentile spirit and see your sweet bright smile from here..... Love, Angie, Mike, Linda. Bobby Dale and Family🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺Read more
