Sorry for your recent loss. Barbara and I also came from large families (although not as large as Edward’s) and have experienced the loss of parents. Larry served in the military during the Vietnam War about the same time as Edward. We are sure you appreciated his service to this country just as we have appreciated his service in the Living Church of God. He has a great reward coming in the not too distant future and we will look forward to greeting him then.

We extend our deep sympathy to you.

I will miss my friend dearly, he always lent a listening ear and had big shoulders to cry on and much wisdom to share. He was as close to a father as I would have in this lifetime. He has finished his race and I look forward to seeing him the kingdom of God. Thank you Mr. Bagby.

We were very sorry to hear Mr. Bagby had died. Although we will miss his warm greetings, uplifting attitude, and Sudoku addiction, we look forward to being reunited with him in God's kingdom. He was very special to us and was a priceless source of encouragement in our faith and we know he was priceless to you. Now he will rest until the coming day. "Auf Wiedersehen" our brother and friend Ed Bagby.
