Don Gibson Obituary, Death – Briston, Tennessee, Johnson City, Tennessee – stepfather, Don Gibson, passed away yesterday, and it is with a very heavy heart that I convey this news to you all. I am very sorry for your loss. My mother had a beautiful life with Don as her husband. I loved him so very deeply, and he treated me (and Kelly) with nothing but love, respect, and dignity throughout our whole relationship. We are overcome with profound sorrow. We would be grateful if you would pray for both of us, and in particular for Don’s children, Don Jr., Scott, and Julia, as well as their families, children, and grandkids.
Arrangement information will come later. At this time, we would be grateful for your prayers. Although we don’t communicate much, the way you minister via music never fails to move me. My prayer for you is that the Lord showers his favor upon you and your loved ones in this season to an even greater degree than you have showered it upon me. God be with you everyone. Wow Kris ! Tom and I deeply regret the inconvenience. It is such a trying experience to lose a parent. Simply a momentary parting of the ways! Your entire family will be kept in our thoughts and prayers at this time. Oh, Kris, you have my deepest sympathies as you go through this double tragedy. I cannot imagine. Rest certain that I will be praying for you and your family.
I pray that the Lord would continue to bring you consolation, serenity, and rest as well as the strength to get through these days. Although I do not know you, Kris, my heart is bleeding for you in this difficult time. Your mother and mine both lived in Oakmont, and I recognize your mother from that community. She was a lady of the utmost honor, and I held a great deal of admiration for her. I couldn’t have been happier for her when she announced her retirement and the opportunity to devote more time to her cherished grandchildren. The news of Mr. Gibson’s passing was a blow to the stomach. I want to express how regretful and upset I am. I am going to pray for everyone in the family.
