I am so sorry to hear of Virgil's passing. He was such a sweet and kind person and I always enjoyed seeing him when we would come to visit. Condolences to all of his family from one of his first cousins.

My poppy was by far one of the most influential people in my life. He never failed to put a smile on my face. I knew that no matter the situation he would always offer me advice that I knew would be exactly right. My favorite thing to do was sit in bed with him and listen to all of the stories about his life. I will always remember what all he is told me and I will always utilize it through everything I do. Especially how to cook considering every time I saw him the first thing he would ask is if I had eaten. He was a very godly and wise man. I will miss him more than I knew was possible.

Papaw , my role model, the only man's opinion that ever mattered to me. He was the positive influence when I didnt have any. He was the one person I could go to about anything , and I would always feel better about whatever it was after we prayed together. This man showed me what living right should look like .His smile I will carry with me always. He lit up a room with it as well as my life. I love you Papaw and can't wait to one day see you again.

I don't know where I would start.
My dad was everything to me.
My buddy, my mentor, my inspiration and my HERO
He always set such a good example. If only I had followed.
I know he loved me no matter what crazy thing I did.
He didn't always agree but he always loved me regardless.
That always gave me comfort knowing I could mess up but be so loved .
I can't imagine living my life without him.
Daddy I love you and I have a big empty hole in my heart.
