Papa was more of a father to me than my grandfather. He was so kind and full of life and laughter. I have so many great memories with him playing with my brothers and me growing up. One memory that stands out was him excitingly walking me on stage in a pageant when I was a little girl. He always made everyone around him smile through his humor and through his kind heart. He truly was one of a kind and I will miss him so immensely.

My best memory of Eddie is his respect for his family and friends, his love of life and his wonderful kindness to everyone. I never heard him speak badly of anyone.

Terri and Pam, you and your families have been in my thoughts the past days. Uncle Harold was a wonderful man. Although our visits sometimes spanned months to years, it was like you had seen him yesterday. I loved when Uncle Harold would share a few stories from his childhood about his brothers and sisters when they were kids. I always came away with a special feeling of how much he loved and cherished family. He will be missed terribly, but remembered in the many stories and memories of the times we were able to be together. Love you Uncle Harold.

Pam, Terri and family.
I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Harold was a true southern gentleman, he always had a smile and a kind word to greet all with. He would always make you feel special everytime he greeted you and would kiss your hand.
Uncle Harold will be truly missed.

Terri, Pam and Family,
It is hard to find the words to express how bad we feel for the loss of your father. Your father had a heart of gold, a true gentleman and was a complete joy to be around. Our hearts are broken, but hopefully we can mend with memories of the times we spent with him. Harold will be missed but never forgotten by the family.
Uncle Archie and Family

Uncle Eddie was a blast!

He used to get down on the floor and play with us kids. He took us to the mountains camping. He loved cars, motorcycles, and Elvis.

He was always, always smiling, laughing, and lifting the spirits of those near him. It would be impossible to forget him.

Uncle Eddie was the most kind hearted man I knew and proud to call him my uncle. One of many favorite things that stick out to me is the way he called people " Cotton Picker". Brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. I will miss him dearly. I love you Uncle Eddie ❤️

Uncle Eddie was one of the best uncles I've ever had. He was a wonderful male role model in my life and hands down the best dancer I have ever seen. His kind heart and huge smile is going to be missed dearly.
I love you Uncle Eddie
