So sorry for your loss. Mr. Watson was a great neighbor. Always had a smile on his face and spread joy just by his nature. I always enjoyed seeing him up and down Grandaddy Rd. training his bird dogs.

My wife and I visited Lawrenceburg in 2016 and I wanted to visit OK Baptist Church. OK is the church where my mother was baptized and served as church secretary in the early 1900's. My cousin, Elvis came directly to us and extended his greeting and asked Carolyn and I to be seated with him. Knowing Elvis "Folly" all my life, more closely in my first 16 years, I see him as the man's man, the Christian's Christian. I look forward to seeing him in heaven. My prayers go out for The Lord to ease the sorrow associated with this loss, and to concentrate on his new life.
