Truely one of the best, a very special person indeed, that will be greatly missed by many people. Putting aside his own pain that he lived with daily, he'd lend a hand or help someone else, sometimes he'd give you sage advice in those stories he'd tell, without you even realizing it, but suddenly you seemed to have the answer to a question that you might have been pondering. Those Mighty Big Boots won't be easy to Fill. We're better people for having had him in our lives. Warner Petty and Alberta (Crouch) Petty
