    Pastor Moore meant the world to my kids and me. He and Ms Pixie took us into their loving arms and blessed more than they know. I will be forever grateful for Pastor. May you enjoy your deserved glory in the presence of The Lord. I love you and will see you again.

    A man of integrity and a man filled with love for all those he came in contact with was Bro. Moore. I am blessed to have known him and spend special times with him. Much love and prayers to Pixie and all the members of the Moore family.

    Tremendous love and grace of God presented so clearly in Billy Roy’s life. He loved God with all his heart and showed that love to all of us. He was such a great minister and friend to us when our son Andrew suddenly died at age 11 in 1982. I thank God for his testimony all of these years. Bev Carroll

    Bro Moore was such a wonderful blessing to me, as he was to so many others. I haven’t seen him in years, but feel the loss of him all the same. I know he is rejoicing in Heaven amd singing praises to the Lord face-to-face. What a joy for him to be welcomed into Heaven’s gates and Jesus’ arms. Praise God for the light and witness he was, as well as the legacy he leaves with us. We will see him again in Glory! Much love to Pixie and the rest of the family.

    It was great to see Bro Moore at the youth group reunion in October. His voice was a little weak but his faith and enthusiasm were so strong. The years I spent at the Lord’s Chapel were an amazing part of my life. Thank you Bro Moore for for all your sharing and caring.

    Bro. Moore always knew how to put a smile on your face with a kind word from his loving heart. I pray for Pixie and the Moore family that they find comfort in the memories that that they shared over many years with such a special man.

    Dearest Pixie…When I first moved to Nashville from Indiana back in the 80’s my pastor told me I needed to attend Bro. Billy Roy Moore’s church…The Lord’s Chapel. I did just that! We loved him and your family so very much. Thanks for serving so many with so much and touching lives for the kingdom. Bro. Moore did great at Hoy Allen’s Funeral last month and I count it a pleasure having seen him one more time before Jesus called him to join Hoy in GLORY! We will be praying for you and your family. Love you, Kathy & Richard Pearson

    Pixie, our prayers are with you and the family today. You and Bro. Moore have always been such a blessing to us. When our baby died in 1960 at ten days old, Bro Moore spoke with such eloquence and compassion. His words gave healing and hope to our hearts. May the Holy Spirit cover you and give you comfort today, tomorrow and always! We love you!!

    Brother Moore was a VERY SPECIAL “Instrument” in the hands of the LORD. He was so “down to earth” and yet one of the most deeply Spiritual Men of God I’ve ever known. In fact, the Lord used Billy Roy to “anoint and send us out” to spread the Gospel as “SONGWRITERS Ministry” Glenn Ashworth, Jacky Watts and I way back in 1980. I believe God used his evangelistic gifting to help us win the many tens of thousands of souls we’ve seen saved over the years. We will miss you deeply Brother Moore… but as you used to say “only for a little while”!
    Abundant blessings to Pixie and all the Family and friends whom I know will miss him as will we.

    Dear Brother Moore was the minister at The Lords Chapel when my family moved to Franklin. I never knew a man who exuded such love and compassion for the hurting souls of the world.

    He married my daughter, Caryn Coyle, in September 1993, in Franklin, TN.

    The Angels in Heaven are Rejoicing today as they welcome this faithful Christian soldier and son!

    The Lord led me to a place a long time ago. Brother Billy was preaching that day. It was the first time I ever felt the presence of God. What a wonderful day it was that day.

    Pixie,
    Johnny and I just heard about Brother Moore’s passing. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Brother Moore was truly a man of God and a friend to all. He made a difference in many lives at Soddy Community Chapel and the Soddy-Daisy Community in general. It is a blessing to have known such a wonderful family.
