So very sorry for your loss. My husband Chris passed away in October and he always talked so fondly of all his relatives in KY...His Mama Hazel's brothers and sister and all his exploits with his cousins. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. God bless!

I'm going to miss him! So many happy memories of Uncle Ed growing up when I'd spend the summers in Kentucky. My love and prayers to Aunt Delora, Stevie, Lisa, Mary Lynn and their families. Wish I could be there to give you all a big HUG.
