    Dear Tant Family,
    Please accept my thoughts of C.E. at this time and always.
    I stopped by his house today as well as West Harpeth in remembrance of this fine and respected man who I knew 15 years and enjoyed visiting him and his dogs. I know he is together again with them and his wife, who he spoke of often. I was one of countless friends and acquaintances.

    Brandaddy was loved by all of us. I always visited him at Christmas and remembered him so many times throughout the year. I am glad he is with Granny and Doug. That is where he belongs. My thoughts are with you Steve, Sandra, Kelly, Warren, David, and all the grandchildren.

    My sincere condolences to the family. Words are never enough to take away the pain we feel when we lose a loved one in death; but our loving Heavenly Father gives us comfort, endurance and hope through the Bible Scriptures. ( Romans 15:4). So read your Bible daily so you can be strengthened daily.
