Hollis Ray Venable
December 7, 2018
I have so many memories of daddy. He loved everyone, he seemed to find the best in everyone, he taught me to love people no matter what. I was a daddy's girl. He taught me how to farm and how to drive a tractor even how to shoot a gun. I have so many memories I just can't seem to name them all. I guess the most fondness memory is working out in the field with him, day light to dark. He said your hard work would always pay off in the end. He taught me never to steal and never lie. I miss you so much daddy, I wish you were still here but I wouldn't bring you back for the world. I love you Daddy!!!
