I was Mr. Stuckey's mailman for 2 years over 25 years ago. I remember talking to him about his garden and him planting his corn so early in the year. He was a nice man and I know his family will miss him greatly.

Papa, Thank you for inspiring my who life growing up and setting the bar on what a man can achieve. Thank you for always Suggesting the next step but leaving it open for room to grow. Most important, thank you for providing me with such a caring Mother that has raised me till this point (give or take a year heh). I love my family and I want to say hi to my Uncle Jim, Aunt Vicki and all my cousins following because you never know where we will end up next, I wish only Valhalla for Papa and I hope he is chilling on a vacation island, made with clouds , with grandma. I love all you guys and can't make it but I will make some phone calls. I think we should play siting on the dock my the bay, just my recommendation for the funeral. -Nathan
