My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all the family, and so many friends. I have known Mr. Case my entire life, through my late Grandfather, Lem Barnwell, and always knew him to be a sweet, kind, generous man, who loved the Lord, his Family and music, as well as the many friends he made, everywhere. My prayers are with you all, during your sad, but temporary, “Goodbye”. God bless you all, Ernestine Nagell

Praying for your family. I know he will missed but he will always be with you. I never remember a time he did not express his love for his family and grandchildren. Know you were loved and honored.

Daddy, my heart is content to know that you are not in any pain no more. You are the most “wonderful” dad in the world. Your love for music has been past down to many of your children and grand children. Your support throughout my life is the foundation that holds me strong today. Be happy in heaven, do not worry about us, we will see you soon. Love always and forever.
