I was very sad to hear about Poochie’s passing. I was a teacher with him at North Tazewell Elementary years ago and we car pooled together. I have fond memories of him singing the song Oklahoma to me every morning when he found out I was moving to Oklahoma City. He was a very special person.

This is so sad to hear - "Pooch" had a large spirit and seemed to have a real zest for life. We were so blessed to have him join us for the Veterans' Appreciation Breakfast on November 10 at First Christian Church. We will miss Mr. Yost. God hold his family close.

I was blessed to meet and befriend Poochie at Blfd. State. We had several classes together. I will never forget that wit and smile that he always shared with those friends in his circle. Be happy because I know he is now walking the streets of Gold.
