Funeral Arrangements

Funeral arrangements for Hunter:

Friday, August 30th

11am – Memorial Service, approx. 1 hr.
Sellars Funeral Home, Mount Juliet, TN (2250 N Mt Juliet Rd  Mt Juliet, TN 37122)

*Funeral procession will leave following the service and travel to the cemetery. All are welcome to join us at the cemetery. It’s about 25 minutes travel time between locations.

1pm – Military Honor Guard ceremony
Nashville National Cemetery (1420 Gallatin Pike S  Nashville, TN 37115)

2-4pm – Please join us for some good food and good company at the Life Assembly Church fellowship hall (555 Pleasant Grove Rd  Mt Juliet, TN 37122)

*We are hoping to arrange for someone to be able to watch any children in attendance at church, but can not guarantee it at this time.

If you’re coming from out of town – Mount Juliet is only 15 minutes from the Nashville Airport. It’s a great little city full of restaurants and shopping, just 25 minutes East of Nashville.

The memorial service is going to be really informal. Hunter didn’t want a bunch of tears shed for his death, but would have preferred laughter shared in honor of his life.  If anyone is interested in speaking at the memorial service, please contact me at jennjlindsey@gmail.com. Ultimately we’d like to have 2-3 people that knew him well that have anything they would like to say about him, and don’t mind carrying on for 5-10 minutes, to be willing to speak during the service.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Fisher House, whose purpose is “providing a “home away from home” for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.” It’s an organization that we’ve been donating to for years, as we feel it’s a really noble cause.

The Finish Line

With a very heavy heart, I’m sorry to tell you that Hunter passed away yesterday shortly after noon. Since our last post about how happy his 42nd birthday was two weeks ago, his condition had rapidly declined. He had been admitted to an in patient hospice unit at the beginning of the week.  Hunter was happy with the decision to be admitted, as he was much more comfortable having 24 hr. medical care since he often felt on the verge of suffocating, and wasn’t able to get enough relief at home anymore. It had gotten really hard to watch him struggle just to breathe, and know that there was no real way that we could help him.

He was ready, and he was at peace. I may post more on this at a future date, but right now just wanted to get the information out there, as I know many of you had already heard. We will be posting our plans for the service by Monday, but likely it will be on Friday morning  (30th), here in Mount Juliet. As soon as we have the details figured out, I will get it posted so that any of you that wish to attend can start making plans.

I am so sorry that this isn’t the news that any of us wanted to hear. Please know that he truly felt the love, respect, friendship, encouragement, thoughts and prayers from all of you throughout this whole journey.
