We have fond memories of Father Poole when he was here in the Prestonsburg community , and when he came to various reunions over the years. His message was always one of peace and love. For that we will always be grateful.

Very sorry to hear of the passing of Father Poole. I did not know him personally but through St. Mildred Church. Loved, to see him when filling in for Father Jay. He was a delightful gentleman and will be missed. My prayers and thoughts are for him and his family. Blessings and peace to you, Mary Guffey
