One of a Kind
Our deepest sympathies to Norma, my good friend, Tim, and the Pierce family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Homer was one of a kind; we will remember him with a wink and a nod... and great big smile.

I grew up just 4 doors north of Homer's home on Joseph street, now N 8th. Walked to school together each day, crossing US 50. Played after school. Enjoyed his companionship, for all those years.
