Preston was a wonderful man. Always boisterous. Always smiling. I remember playing in their backyard on those big oak trees when they lived off of Kirkman St. I loved to follow all my cousins and my older sister around and do whatever they were doing, even though I was youngest, therefore the pest! But how I cherish those memories. You will be missed Preston but you were so surrounded by love and family...and that made you a very rich man. Till we see you again... Rest Gently.
Bonnie
