Uncle RA you will be dearly missed and always remembered with Love. I have lots of fond memories. RA liked to laugh and make others laugh too. My mom and dad were always smiling and laughing when we’d visit RA and Helen. One time when I was about 13, he showed me how he would shoot crows out of his field. A few years later I went to visit and RA had baby calves he was raising, and he shared that with me. They would wrap their tongues around his hands and arms...
Rest well Uncle RA...please give my Mama a hug and my heart horse a pat. One day we will all be together in Gods Heavenly House, and live forever. How beautiful it must be there, I am sure. <3 <3

To my sweet cousins, Brenda, Robin, Kathy, and Tammy,

God blessed you all with such a warm and loving dad. He made everybody smile that was around him, and we were so lucky to know him. May God bless you and comfort you and make you strong right now.

All my love,
Joan

Helen,

I remember having a lovely visit with you and R.A. about 9 years ago when you came to visit my dad, L.A., in the hospital. What a blessing it was for Daddy to get to see you and catch up with his good friends. Thank you so much for sharing that day with us.

You are in my prayers,
Joan
