  1. Memories of Monroe

    Written by: Hallie Bateman

    Monroe taught me alot in my early twenties. Jesus recently reminded me of this man I spent hours with in a season of my life. God is so specific with me. Monroe taught me the importance of patience. I would sit with him at his computer to delete emails. Haha
    I would also cook for him occasionally and he would share beautiful stories with me.
    One time I was helping him fix his washer and I got so frustrated but then in this he taught me a good spiritual lesson.
    What a good man he was!
    Now he is dancing with Jesus!
    Much love to the family from Switzerland.
    He had an impact on my life.

  2. A thousand years is like one day

    Written by: Denise Stamos

    My sweet Roe, the twinkle in your eyes every time I saw you melted my heart. Even a couple of days before you passed, you still had that twinkle. Thank you for being a part of my life and being there for me every time I needed a friend. When my dad passed last year, you had such soothing words for me. At my dad’s service I was reminded that “a thousand years is like one day and one day is like a thousand years”. 2 Peter 3:8. I’ll see you at super time and this time, Luby’s is on me! Forever and a day, always in my heart.

  3. What a great man ! Served his fellow man where-ever he went. A great American hero who loved and served his country. Loved his Lord and now will live with Him forever. Save me a seat friend, I will see you at the House….
