We were saddened to hear the news from Rick Kindoll that Orvie Humes lost his Battle with cancer. Orvie is the son of Raymond and Brenda Humes from Rolling Fork Beagle Club. Orvie and his family have been on a very difficult journey the past few years. He fought a long and courageous battle until he just couldn't fight anymore and was called home around midnight, July 9th. There have been some cherished memories in your short life and we are sorry many of your dreams weren't meant to be. We do remember a highlight of yours was when you finished Humes High Keno. There is nothing worse than losing a child whose life has been cut so short. You will forever be in our hearts so we will always be near to each other. We were so sorry that a cure was not meant to be and yet thankful for the organizations that helped us through these difficult times and years. We still see your smile and are thankful to the Make a Wish foundation, doctors, nurses and Hospice who helped all of us through this. We are thankful for the time we had and it was just not long enough; and we thank you for your love and we will always love, honor, cherish and miss you! Your pain and suffering has ended and now you can Soar With The Eagles and Rest In Peace.
Humes High Keno, Your 1st Field Champion
We want to let you know our dear son and hero...
Goodnight Our Hero
To be brave is to cry But still to fight on, And that's what you did, Our hero, our son.
The battle was hard. We thought we had won, But still you fought on, Our hero, our son.
The happiness you brought To the lives you have touched Will live on forever As you are loved so much.
When we close our eyes we can see you. When we whisper your name we can hear you, And when we reach with our hearts we can touch you.
Goodnight our hero, our son, our Orvie. You were just a child But you have died a man.
Orvie, you brought so much into our lives and we thank you
Bless us Lord As we pray. You took our Little boy home today. Please let him know, Please as we pray, How much we Loved him every day. We loved his laugh, We loved his smile, We loved his everything, We loved our child.
Our deepest sympathy is with the Humes Family
We send your family our condolences during your time of grief May God bless your souls, You may be wondering why did he have to go But only God and Heaven knows When the day comes you'll see him at the crossroads But until that day, Just know God works in mysterious ways
