  1. He was one of THEE BEST that God has ever put on this Earth. His smile and personality could charm the birds right out of the trees. He touched everyones heart and made them feel like a million bucks. He loved his Dixie, his family, and everyone around him.

    God has a very special place for him in Heaven. My heart goes out to all of you in this most difficult time.

  2. We are so sad for your loss. I will miss seeing him in the yard or at the store. Such a nice man. You all are in our prayers.
