Elaine, Lee, Tracy, Caitlin & Brayden--

Words can't express how much Uncle Junior and the many memories of him mean to the Whitlow family. Always there for us, even before we knew we needed something. Forever grateful to Junior for his strength, endurance, faithfulness, and willing spirit. The Old Henry Road will not be the same without him. Heaven is much sweeter today as Junior is now with our Savior, Jesus Christ; and Granny, Papa, and many of our family loved ones gone before. "Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was." Romans 6:5

Continued prayers of comfort and strength.
