Uncle Truman, was my favorite. He always put a smile on your face. He loved the Lord with all his heart. I know you must be singing Gods praise. You now have a new body, not frail and weak. Surely , your feet are dancing before the LORD, never to shuffle again. I can only imagine you sitting, talk to Jesus, and all your loved on. I will miss all those talks we had but, I know you are with our savior. Save me a seat. LOVE YOU!!!

Truman was a dear friend from East Sligh Avenue Baptist Church. I first met him when I was a teen and he would visit my parent's home (Bob and Sara Gary). I loved when we would play UNO together.... He was my punching bag :) ... he always laughed when he was going to get me good. As I grew up, he became a true source of encouragement to me. I always loved visiting the church and knowing he would be there to talk to.... he loved to talk and ask lots of questions. I only have the fondest of memories of him. I will always love and miss you my dear friend!
