Lots of friends and family were there. Beautiful flowers and wonderful comments. Thank you Jehovah for the resurrection hope!! I can't wait to see my brother again❤️Love Always, Shirley"

"My beloved Uncle. You were and will always be one of the greatest men in my life. You meant so much to the family. I can recall countless funny stories my Mom (Dorothy) and Aunt Donna would tell of your childhood. I always laugh about the clubhouse Auntie burned down lol. We all love you so much. My Mom even prayed to have a son born on your birthday and her prayers were answered with Carey. Although you're no longer here with us, your presence and love will always be with us. You are missed. Love, Carm"

        Welcome home my son, I can hear The Master Say,
        Your Job was well done, You fought a good fight,
       Sometimes both Day and Night.
       You've ran the race, keeping good pace, a Job well done,
       with a smile on your face, that's part of God's saving Grace.
        Day's were long, many things went wrong, You kept the Faith
        and held on strong, But you were tired and wanted go home,
        God heard your Prayer, He would not leave you in despair.
        Welcome Home My Son,
         Welcome Home:
          I Love You Bro!
         From Your Sister
         Linda (lindy)
        Melinda Johnson
         From Boston, MA."

This tribute was added by Delena Leary on 9th August 2016

"To my eight sibling’s, as we prepare to say our good-byes to our father, each of his children, all nine, are linked together with a common dominator, which factors in a unique formula (SB) of its own.

A heart felt moment to spare, I stand praying a sibling’s prayer

A gathered moment of laughter, with the mirror image in which we share, we find a similar reflection without a glair

I stand praying a sibling’s prayer

As our father is laid to rest, let us find gratitude in knowing our father stood proudly

As we all stand repeating a sibling’s prayer

In loving memory of my father, Jessie L. Sutton

Your loving daughter,
Delena P. Leary"
