I have never known a nicer man who literally always kept it real. His presence will surely be missed but I take comfort in knowing that he is in the presence of God alongside his beloved wife. To Carlton, Jr and Jeffrey, be strong, and know that you are not going through this alone. Our prayers and condolences are with you and we pray that you will find strength in each other and in your faith.

Death leaves a pain that nothing can heal but the time spent with our love ones is priceless. When ever I spoke with Uncle Tettie, he would say, “which one are you” . I would say , I’m Shelia. He would always say, “oh yeah you Neldia’s baby girl.” I love you both, find strength in knowing God has a plan. Love, Neldia’s baby girl❣️

Rest in Heaven Uncle Tettie. My heart was so blessed when Jeffrey told me that before your transition you were thanking your Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that he was telling you Well Done...... You were the last Patriarch in the Griffin family. We have some wonderful memories of you. Please tell the gang hello... you all have set great examples for those of us who remain to carry out the Legacy of Jack and Daisy Griffin. Until we meet again fifty years from now.... Love You from the SIP.

Carl, is what my mom, who was his baby sister, always called him! He loved his family! We called him Uncle “Teetie” which he didn’t like! We would fuss about his name! He would always say that’s what the folks in Mississippi called him. And now since he was a city boy, we should him call Carl! I will miss him but I know that he’s happy now with Aunt Gladys, Uncle Floyd and all of the rest of his siblings who went before him !

I remember the many times we went to Atlantic City with the Surburben nights group on Labor day week. Brings back many memories with him and his family.
