I was very saddened to hear about Mr. Ebbert. I offer my most sincere condolences and my love to the family. I will miss his laughter and friendship we had at the Wellness Center. He was, with-out a doubt, the finest gentleman I ever met in my life time.

Memories are to be cherished, and I will always cherish the memories of Mr. Ebbert as I knew him. Hard worker, sincere, funny, caring, and just a great person. Playing euchre with him or just talking about life and world events was always a joy! I am blessed to have known such a man.

My condolences to your family during this time. May you draw comfort from the words of Job who asked, “If a man dies, can he live again?” God assured him that the answer was yes Job 14:14,15. May you find strength in this promise of God that you can see your loved one again in the future. Again, please accept my sympathy.

My deepest sympathy to Jerome’s family & friends!!!

I remember him to be a kind and caring gentleman.

I remember his kindness about 14 years ago, I had just been to the dentist and feeling despondent. I needed a Christmas tree but all I had was a $20. bill. He said he understood and that I could take the most beautiful tree for only $20. Incidentally, the tree was worth $100.00!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and RIP DEAR JEROME
