May God comfort the family as you go through this difficult time. I was just remembering the Allgood family last Wednesday as I drove down Aiken Rd in Bogart. My sister and I lived with our grandparents (A.E. and Jannie Lou Brown) next door to Mr Roy and Mrs. Allgood from about elementary school - high school and fondly remember the Allgood family.

I was the luckiest girl to call him my Pa. He will always hold a special place in my heart and I will forever hold onto the finest memories of an incredible man. He loved his family more than anything and the love he had for my Grandmother was the most beautiful love I have witnessed. I am a better person because of him and I will miss him so much but know he is smiling and laughing in heaven and watching over us all.

My condolences to the Allgood Family. I worked with Mr. Allgood at Bells many years ago. Great guy, funny, and a pleasure to work with. Lisa and John, I'm thinking of you today as you hand over this wonderful man to our Heavenly Father. I know he will be a shining star.

Dear Allgood family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Allgood. Growing up I remember he was such a sweet man and so funny! The looks he would give us all... especially Jimmy! He couldn't even disipline the kids without getting tickled at something they would say back! I know it was fun growing up in the Allgood house and I am sure those memories will help you through this sad time with a smile on your faces. Lori Brightwell Dillard

James was so good to my late husband Bill Norris and to me. when Bell's went to Cornelia to open a new store he asked Bill to go. We had a new baby and Mavis was so helpful to us. James was my uncle by marriage but he was also my uncle by heart. I am sending love to all of you. You had a wonderful husband and father and grandfather. Barbara Nunnally Norris Sims, Herb too.
