Our sympathy to Howard's family. He was a friend and neighbor at the Outdoor Resorts in Gatlinburg. A super guy.

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. McAnnally's death. I knew him, Forestine, and children at Roebuck Park Baptist Church in Birmingham. Such a sweet family. Jay and Cindy, we pray for your comfort.
