Webb I just heard about your Dad. I’m so sorry. I Know it’s a hard thing. I lost my Dad a little over a year ago. Your family was a special part of my life when we were kids. I will never forget that squirrel he kept in a cage in the den. He was the only one who could pick him up. He was always good to me and I never forgot it. Be well my old friend.

I remember AW from about 55 years ago. He always had a friendly smile, with tobacco, and also rescued me several times when I was at the lake at the Carr farm in Wilson. The entire family was friendly and wonderful to be with. Janet was a great lady. I remember Webb and Connie when they were little.
I am very sorry for your loss.

I always considered my cousin a gentle and kind giant of a man. Me being his city kid cousin thought AW could have been in one of those old western movies as one of the heroes. He always had a chew of tobacco in his mouth, always working on something on the farm, adored his family and loved his dogs. He rescued me more than a couple of times. Once when his horse took off with me and another time when I was running from the momma hog when I wasn't supposed to be playing with her piglets. He will be fondly remembered.
