Uncle T, I will definitely miss your humor and sarcasm. You always had something funny to say! You were a great man and will be missed by many! I'm not sure who is going to say the blessing at Thanksgiving and Christmas now, but it won't be quite like yours. I don't think I remember anyone else ever saying it but you! Xoxo Scarlet=)

Condolence to the family of N.T. from a schoolmate at Garth.

May 14, 2012

When you came in from "the country" in the 9th grade to join our '48 Garth High class, it was the beginning of four very memorable years. What fun we had when we piled into your gray car! Bettie, you and I enjoyed 12 years of school as fellow classmates (a rarity in today's society). N.T's parents had grown up with my mother (Frances Ware Nash). She always called N.T.'s dad "Buggy" so I always called N.T.'s parents Mr. Buggy and Miss Frances I remember many a good time at their home in the country( now a subdivision?)). Our love and condolences go out to Bettie and family. May the happy memories and stability of your years together give you the strength at this time of your loss. May someday the Class of '48 reconvene in Heaven . What a blessing those happy years at Garth together were.

Dear Uncle T,
Thank you for hiding all of those Easter eggs, helping me to catch all of those lightning bugs, teaching me how to make cotton candy and teaching me how to swim.
You will be greatly missed.
Your niece,
