I never had a better friend than Poozie.
We laughed a lot during the past 55 years, mostly at each other. But that's what friends do. We saw more baseball games together, than I can count. And, in the old days, drank more beer than a care to remember. He was a good hard working man and we shall never see anyone like him again.
I know we will meet again in the not-to-distant future. John James, Bradenton , FL

Sally, Robin, Linda, and Scott, I have wonderful memories of visiting all of you in California several summers many years ago. Poozie always made the trips memorable. He was a special man, filled with kindness and humor. I know he will be missed. I will continue praying for God's peace and comfort for each of you. Laura (James) Grizzle
