  1. We are very sorry for your loss. My mom(Doris McMillan/Carillon) enjoyed many meals disussing farming with Mr. Bailey. He reminded her of the “good ole days”. He was very kind to her and I greatly appreciate that. Prayers to your family!

  2. Enjoyed very much visiting Mr. Bailey at Carillon! He enjoyed picking on my dog during the visits. We both, Petey and me, looked forward to our weekly visits!

  3. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one.The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible’s promises give comfort and hope. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”.- Revelation 21:4. I hope this will give your family comfort and hope.

    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy
