    I wish I could have met Mr Conner, but I am a sister in Christ Jesus with his daughter, Anita. The love Anita and her father had for each other will never die, and one day we will get to have a reunion with him in Heaven, and I will get to meet and embrace him. Praise be to GOD the father for showing us how to be earthly parents and for so many other innumerable blessings both seen and unseen!

    Mr. Conner was such a nice Christian gentleman. He proudly shared pictures of his grandchildren with us. We continue to enjoy one of his hand made bluebird houses. We are keeping your family in our prayers at this time.

    I so enjoyed meeting Mr. Conner in Lynchburg when he came to visit the girls. He was a sweet, godly man, and I know he'll be missed by many! You took such loving care of him. I'm praying for you all.

    Anita, Prayers for you and family. May it comfort you to know he is at the right hand of God and your mother is standing right beside him. May that bring you peace in your time of sorrow.

    My deepest sympathy to Early's family and all his many friends. He was a very special man, and I always enjoyed talking with him when he'd be in Food Lion, getting groceries. He was certainly devoted to Margaret for all her life, a special bond we don't see in many couples. RIP Early, your time on earth is done, but we will see you again, and Margaret, in a better life without any pain and suffering. God has those plans for us.
