I remember when I would stay at Nannie and Papa's house, Papa would always have his Honeycombs out. One day, he had me try Honeycombs and it became my favorite cereal. To this day, I eat Honeycombs. I believe in heaven he is eating lots of Honeycombs with Nannie. I miss you Papa.

Love your Great-Granddaughter, Kylie <3

One of my pleasures while serving as a Lay Pastor for 5 months at Pocola UMC was meeting and visiting with "Mama" and Ted. They were so much in love with each other. As a veteran, I had the great opportunity to visit with a true "hero" who was very modest in sharing a few stories about his military service. They both will be missed but have left a beautiful and loving family.
