All of my memories are from many years ago when we were children in Oglesby. Our families were friends for several generations. I truly was sad to learn of his death. Over the years we had sparse contact however, that does not mean the fondness established in childhood dimmed. I do want to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family. My best memories are oh so many that just the mention of his name stirred in this octogenarian mind.These brought out of my treasure box lots of smiles and pleasure. Thanks Punk!

I loved hearing the stories about travels abroad. Valued the love you have for Coleta and your family. And, most of all your sound and honest advise. I pray the Lord covers the you all in love and peace.
