Where do I start - when I was a baby Gary and Diane and Shirley and Donnie took me everywhere with them. Gave me first water without being boiled and I walked the first time with all of them. So Gary you were with me thru about everything. Me getting saved growing up in Church with all of you singing in the choir together. Over the past few years didn’t get to see you much but still prayed because that was all could do. After you talk to Jesus and mama and papa Shirley and Diane please tell my daddy and mother hello. Lots of fun times to remember!! You just made it a little ahead of us but we are not far behind.
Eloise Denise and Scott remember the great memories of your daddy and his teachings of Jesus and that he loved y’all more than life itself especially those grandchildren!!! I love y’all
