Some of the happiest times we can remember are those spent with our Uncle Winfred and Aunt Katie. We would always look so forward to them coming to visit and spending time with them in the Smoky Mountains. I can never remember a time that he did not greet us with that huge wonderful smile and all the laughter we shared will always uplift our hearts. We are so thankful that the Lord saw fit to give us such a great Uncle and allowed us the fabulous times we spent together. Kenny & Terry Kimsey

When my wife, Anabolena, and I moved to my birthplace of Cartersville at the beginning of my career, my Uncle Winfred was very helpful to us, first in recommending me for a job with his former employer, and second in helping me purchase a good car to get around in. I will always remember his cheerful, positive attitude and that warm smile of his that he seemed to always have on his face. Katie, you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this time.

Will remember when I would visit my Mom and Dad and you would be sitting in their kitchen sharing a cup of coffee but more importantly you share the gift of time. We all will miss you
