My condolences to the family. Continue to let your fond memories of Custer warm your hearts. Always remember that God cares for you and is “close to the broken-hearted.” May you call on Him in prayer for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Psalm 34: 18

Rev. Lowell C. Rice

My thoughts and prayers and those of the Crate & June Rice Family are uplifting the Custer Picklesimer Family through this time. I have many memories of Custer when he operated a coal mine in Johnson County and then served the people of Johnson County as the Property Valuation Administrator. He was a good man who always had the people at heart. May the Lord bless and comfort everyone who is diminished by Custer's passing.

Alice, Dana, Cassie and Tookie, so sorry for your loss. Uncle Custer always had a warm smile and a kind word. He will truly be missed. I was reading an article where he was quoted as saying he had lived a long full happy life, and that he did. He loved his family and his country. Thoughts and Prayers and may God bring you comfort at this very difficult time. Love Jenny and Josh Barker
