Dear Cousins,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was such a sweetheart of a man. He was so smart, a great business man, and even more important, a great family man. Even as a child, it was apparent to me how much he adored Aunt Frances! I remember so many good times spent at Granny Teet and PaPa Will's house with all of you. Those huge dinners where we were at the kid's table and all of us having a great time are some of my best memories.
May you find comfort in wonderful memories of great times spent with your Dad.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again, May God hold
you in the hollow of his hand.
