With great sadness, my family and I wish you our sincere condolences. Myself, my sisters and brother were raised at the head of Snow Hill. As a teenager and as a young man we talked many times and he always took a little time to chat. I considered him and his brothers good friends. I admired his work ethic and kindness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless you all.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Phil Gibson and Family
