  1. We were so sorry to learn of Orlando’s passing. We attended Central Baptist with Orlando & Jeanette through 2001 but saw them occasionally afterwards. Orlando was a unique individual and both were loving, caring individuals who loved to share stories from Tennessee.

  2. Cyndy, the girls, and I are so sad to hear of Orlando’s passing. You are all in our prayers. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help around the house.
