I have known the Armstrong Family for many many years. I watched all 4 children grow up and then their children. I will always remember the hilarious things that happen. Preston was wonderful child, young adult and young man. I miss them all love them and I am so sorry. LindaGarman

I can still see him laughing right now, especially at the time I made a guy get out of my car off 380 across from The Sheriff’s office in Decatur...this was few years after we graduated anyways we were good friends and I had a Camaro andPreston thought I was cool use to drive us Denton and this guy who rode with us on way back one night and he was so annoying I told him to quit or I make him get out, he didn’t so I said get out and drove off, Preston laughed so hard but then he said “ you are going back right ?” I said no. He laughed again. Come to find out next day Preston told me after I dropped him off he went back to get the guy. He was sitting all alone waiting for us to come back I didn’t Preston did. He never forgot that memory. Neither will I knowing he had a good heart and a smile so big that you just can’t forget. I will never forget him. he and I shared a sense of humor, had lots of laughs especially in high school. I am very proud of the man he grew up to be and a beautiful wife and boys he loved so much my heart aches for them and his family especially Cindy and Jeremy and Tommy who I love always. Keep smiling Preston you are a friend I will always cherish in my heart never will I forget you.

So proud to see Preston Armstrong grew into a responsible young man. Melissa I only met you twice,1.At ya'lls wedding and 2. At my husband's memorial. Preston's Uncle Derrell. Both times I could see the electricity of love you had one for another. I'm so sorry your lives together was so short. I know you will miss him along time. It's been 11 years ago that l lost mine and l still miss him. You can have hope that you will see him again. That's how l make it one day at a time. Sorry l won't be able to be there, because of health issues l have. Hugs,and love and prayers for you, your sons and all the rest of his family and friends. Your Aunt Carol
