    I will never know a man more loving and caring than you Papa! I love you so much and I will always remember your smiling face! As Riley would say you are in Heaven with the Angels now! I love you so much and you will be missed! Give Daddy and Larry a big kiss and hug from me… To the best Papa in the world!

    Faye and Grandchildren, I will miss junior so much because he has been a part of my life for so long, he was always a good brother-in-law, even allowing me to live in your home on more than one occasion for a short period of time.
    I will always remember the good times we had together on vacation and all the good barbeques we had together, as well as all the good catfish dinners we had over the years. we especially had a good family reunion in Gulf Shores and Gatlinburg. I am so thankful that we had a great visit last fall.
    I am most thankful for his decision to name his Lord in baptism. I am sure that he is flying around in heaven with his Mom and Dad and Barry and Larry.
    May God bless all of you.
    Love you all, Linda

    Faye:
    My sympathy goes out to you for the loss of your husband Junior. I have not been in the family that long but i can say that it was a pleasure knowing Jr. When Linda and I would come down for a visit I always enjoyed our trips out to the stores and hanging out in Decatur. It was always good talking about our experiences in the military, that was something we had a lot in common, even our trip to the Army and Navy Surplus Store. Take care and know that he had a good life and we know he is in a better place.
