My condolences to Vernon, and all. Mr. Webb was a great man and extremely wise. He always had very strong caring advise. The last place I saw him was Publix we talked for a good fifteen minutes and shared some good laughs. It was good to hear him say the family was doing well, and it's good to know him, and his wonderfull wife are reunited.

What a special special man who left endless memories for all he touched to hold on to. May all of Mr. Web's memories be with you all and comfort you for a lifetime. I know he made me laugh countless times whether I lived in Ormond, Nashville, or Richmond. I can just picture him in heaven dancing cheek to cheek with Miss Doe, the love of his life! That makes me smile. He will be missed equally with Miss Doe!

Mr. Webb will be sorely missed, I will always remember his mild manner, yet upbeat personality. To the family, don't look at it as a loss, as he remained here to watch over you for a season. Now he's in heaven rejoicing with the Lord, and beside the love of his life, looking down on you!

May God bless and keep you during this you all!

Looking at the photos, I don't know which is making me laugh more: Uncle Vernon's tight slacks, or Grandpa's chicken legs that I've somehow inherited. Nonetheless, I'm flooded with loads of memories I haven't thought about in a long time, and I can't stop smiling at the photos of my beautiful grandmother and awesome grandfather. I miss my grandfather. I miss his voice; I miss his laugh; I miss watching he and my mother dancing. I hadn't spoken with Grandpa much in recent years, and that last time I saw him was about five years ago at an Applebee's in Jenkintown, PA, where I had lunch with my mother and he. Regardless of how absent I was though, he'd always loved and comforted me as if we'd spoken regularly. We'd go years without speaking, but he was always quick to remind me of how much he loved me and how proud he was. Grandpa was also never afraid to set me straight when I was being a bonehead. I miss you, Grandpa. I love you.

I did several shows at Theater Workshop with webb, most recently Guys and Dolls. Webb was always a joy to be around and we had many laughs together. He will be missed.
