To Carlisle's dear family,
Though we'll be in Bluffton for our annual convention, our hearts and thoughts will be with you as you lay Carlisle to rest. It has been a joy to know and minister to Carlisle these last almost nine years, and I will miss him - what a fine fella, and a good man!

May God bless you all in this time of loss, and may He give you the comfort of a holy hope for eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Fr. Ted

I had only met and talked to Mr. Carlisle a few times but he always told me stories about my grandmother Bessie Murrell. Bessie's brother John Nelson Murrell Sr was Ione's father so Ione was my grandmother's niece.and that made Carlisle her great nephew. I remember Ione and Leona coming to visit my grandmother. I will keep this family in my prayers.
