It has been almost 50 years since I saw or spoke with you (1971 in Dalton, you working with the telephone company). And, going back 60 years ago, I still remember you could hit the softball further than anyone else in the 5th grade!! I now live in Ooltewah and was at the Five Springs Methodist Church annual homecoming yesterday and someone ask all to pray for your family. I am deeply saddened by the news of your loss. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. May God’s love surround you and comfort you during this difficult time. I pray for peace, comfort, and understanding for you all.
