I remember the many times the family enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving at our house, or Robbie and Arthur's home, in Lufkin. His family spent the night with us one time and his children were taking turns brushing their teeth the next morning. He told them to be sure they brushed their tongue...they said uuughh that makes me gag. I think about that every morning when I brush my tongue. Even though we lived miles apart, we would stay in touch by phone. He would always tell me 'Tell my brother Jerry hello for me and hit him on the back of the head'. Jerry loved it.

Jerry and I have many wonderful memories of good times together. Jerry has been reminiscing about occasions of things they did growing up together.

Remembering the last time we were all together. Glad to have shared this special time. I am envisioning a big table in heaven and the family is gathered around it, laughing and talking! Love, Martha & Steve

My deepest sympathy to my family members during this time of grieving. Uncle Jirrell and Aunt Eleanor have always had the midas touch when it came to selecting greeting cards. They would find the sweetest cards for whatever the occasion. Always such a joy to open one from them. Uncle Jirrel would always end with "Love ya sweetheart." that would always melt the miles away from their mailbox to mine. And the phone calls always started out "Hey Sweetheart!" He also took great pleasure in teasing me about my "vicious attack dog." The dog just knew a kind soul. These are sweet memories for me.
