Thoughts and prayers for all the family. Losing a loved one is so very difficult. May you find comfort in knowing that he is with the Lord. Darlene Jenkins Anderson Southers "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

I always waited on Mr. Seal at the Dollar General in Shenandoah. He was actually the nicest man you ever wanted to meet. He never bragged about anything. I always went back and got his chocolate milk for him and helped him with other items. It is sad the best have to go early. I loved him from the first time I met him. I told him to get those brakes fixed and he told me he did. Such a great man. I did not realize he had served our country to the fullest. He never bragged! I will miss him very much. Kay Allen
