So sorry to read about Mr. Hendrix. He was always so nice to me, always friendly to me and always treated me right. God Bless your family. I love y’all all your family. I won’t be able to go to funeral, I have bronchitis and severe asthma. I have y’all in my prayers.🙏

I will miss a good friend and a good Kiwanian. He was a hard worker in everything the Club did. The Club will miss him.

I went to Swainsboro Tech with Mr. Raymond back in 1969 and 1970. We took Electronic Communication Class with Hubert Gun and (Country Jim) Slawson as our teachers. I have a voice recording of Mr. Raymond on my recorder. I remember him smoking that Pipe. He had such a calm and laid back voice.
