I was employed by FCHC for 12 yrs, those years were some of the best years ever, and Truman was someone who made them special to me, he was so kind and funny, if you were having a bad day just run into him and oh my goodness your bad day was gone! He always had a smile on his face and something sweet or funny to say... Truman will he missed by many. Rest in heaven sweet man.

I enjoyed getting to know Truman while working at FCHC. Our days started with Truman collecting the mail. It wasn't a normal day without Truman. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Over the many years that we have known Truman and Joyce... and the many, many times I came up with beautiful notes, beautiful words for cards, Thank You Cards, Sympathy, Christmas, and and the list goes on... I can't find it in me the way I would like to express my self over his death. I most likely will later but I've waited days to figure this out. Joyce, remember that Willard and I cherish you and Truman and will hold your hearts in ours. May the angels comfort you with hugs and grace. We love you both, Willard & Linda

Very sorry for your earthly loss. Praying: Grace. Peace. Comfort.

Truman was always encouraging and supportive of us during our time at FBC Marlin. He also taught me, as a young bride, all about meat and the best cuts...
