Mr. Chubby when I first met you I was introduced to you as Rolonda’s best friend, you we’re very welcoming and made me feel right at home. Every time Rolonda spoke of you she always had this glow that lit up the entire room. She was proud to be your babygirl! There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t pray for you. Take you rest, may you Rest In Peace as memories of you live on!

Mr. Chub, father in law you were one of a kind! I came into your family nervous, shy not knowing anyone and you were very outspoken. You did not let me go unnoticed, every time there was a function in the family you let everyone I was your daughter in law. You made me feel right at home. You told your jokes that always had me laughing loud through the house and when we would come into town late you would stay up waiting on us and get out of bed to get our laugh on!!!! and tell us that you cooked... Oh how I will miss that sooo much...Good byes are never easy and certainly don’t seem fair But what we can still hold on to is the memories of our time we had here with you. Mr. Chub you faught til the end and your strength was immeasurable. You were not only Rollins dad to me you were his very best friend. I admired the father-son relationship y’all had with each other. Thank you for everything you’ve ever done for us ❤️ You’re forever in my heart. Rest peacefully

Father in law, I miss you so much in such a short time. We didn't get off on a good foot but little did I know that we would form a bond and a friendship that I will forever cherish. I remember when my father passed and you said Big Den I got you. It won't be the same without you but I know when I think of you I will do more smiling than crying because I have nothing but fond memories of you. On that note I'll be signing off. Love, your Son In Law, Big Den.
