Casey was a local fixture around Bogata, having worked at the barber shop, the drugstore, and florist.  He was always willing to help out anyone and did so with a smile.  He loved God, Elvis, country western music and classic hymns, his family and friends, and the staff at Regency Nursing Home.  Casey had a fondness for animals and cared for many through the years, including Iris the donkey and Cali the cat.  He was always quick to smile, and loved telling stories and jokes or breaking out in a song.  Casey is now resting peacefully in the arms of Jesus, his Lord and Savior.

    I remember meeting Casey while on visits to Regency for church singing days. He LOVED to sing and was always willing to sing a solo and/or duet. He was such a kind and gentle soul. He is now singing with the heavenly choir.

    I remember walking with Casey as a young boy. He was very nice to me and we enjoyed talking a laughing. I will never forget we were walking along and a dog got hit by a car. I did not think the dog would make it, but he was bound and determined to make sure it did. He nursed it back to health and that dog follow us around until one day he was gone. Casey said he went home, but he was so happy the dog made. it. Rest in peace my good friend.

    I met Casey at Bogata Nursing home in 1991. He was a wonderful person to be around and reliable worker. I watched him walk back and forth to Buckman Drug Store for years. He was a pleasure to be around and talk to. When he and my mom Melba Bullard were young they were play mates. God Bless you Casey.
