"Wink," Brian and Creasy Family, Liz and I share our condolences in the loss of your father, grandfather, friend.
Although I didn't know him, I do know the character of the family and for that reason, I know he was a good hard working, patriotic man. He taught you well.
I always liked hearing stories about his early days, love of racing and the early NASCAR Days. He certainly passed that legacy on to you. It reflects in your mechanical abilities, "It's truely in your blood".
While his spirit has left the earth, his memory remains. As the pain of his loss lingers, it will soon pass, you will smile as you cherish your memories of him.
Bless You All,
Sincerely,
John D. Barksdale & Liz
