My heartfelt condolences to Gary on the passing of his Dad. Gary may very well be one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life, and I suspect that his Dad's soul runs thru to Gary too. May you be comforted in the love of family, friends and God's unending love.

The Wasson family is in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember Dale's beautiful singing voice, his kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, graciousness, cheerfulness and optimism, to name just a few things. The Wasson family is a wonderful group of people, and this makes me happy, to know that they have each other right now, even though they are missing one of their very favorite people in the whole wide world. Love to every one of the family members and their friends.

May God's special blessings be with your entire family. We certainly remember Gary, Sandy and Paul - when our children - (some of similar ages) were growing up. Gary was always a great friend to deceased son, Tim. He had a good heart and was always there if needed.

There is never a time when He is unresponsive to our pain or any need. His arms are always open.

Know you have caring friends

Dear Wasson family,
Dale was a father, grandfather and friend to me and my children. Always greeted with smiles and hugs, I will forever remember his generous, adventurous spirit and especially his love of music and hiking in the hills and mountains of Tennessee. I know his joyful self will be missed.

Being your first cousin was a ure pleasure from the starts, although our paths have not crossed a lot, since my fifteen years of P.G.A. travel. I have always found you to be a fine Christian gentleman, as was your father John. This is the best comment I could ever give to any
man. "I will meet you in the morning, just inside the eastern gates, I 'll be there." We cannot come to the services, but you all are in our thoughts and prayers. May the Presences, the Comforter be very near you. John and Ruth Egan.

John Barney.
