    You were the best Granddaddy in the world. I only regret the distance that seperated us and prevented your great grandsons from getting to know you the way I did. My heart aches that you are not here and at the same time I rejoice in knowing that you are in your forever home with God. I love you Granddaddy!

    Dear Jo Ann:

    We are very sorry at the passing of your husband. I remember many years ago, when I first met the 2 of you at Bible Baptist. Then years later to have you back in our lives at Coldwell Banker/Lakeside. We feel bad that we just found out about his death today, Kathie was looking at the obits from Hendersonville Funeral Home. He was a wonderful and kind man.
