Aunt Betty,

I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Moody's passing and even more sorry that I can't be there with you. I know that mama and papa were waiting there with open arms to welcome him into the beautiful gates of heaven. He will be missed. We love you!

My condolences to Betty and family. Moody drove my school bus when I was in elementary school and I always respected and looked up to him. As a minister I know he had a great influence on many people.

In the photo he still has that look of kindness on his face. He was one of the best men I have ever known. Full of compassion, wit, and humor.

Who knew that he had been a middle school english teacher and a school bus driver?

The obituary reminded me that Betty had a Ph.D, although I don't remember in what subject.

We were lucky to have known him.

Somewhere, a choir is humming the third verse of "Just as I am" and we are all waiting to hear him speak.
