Your parents were both wonderful people. They were proud of your accomplishments. Your Momma and I enjoyed Garage Sales. Sorry you had to let them go so close together. Prayers for comfort.

I am so sorry for your loss. I love Phyllis and George they were such loving and caring people. I miss Phyllis I used to take veggies up to them and they would always bring a Little Ceaser pizza by soon after for the kids. Now I am at a loss for words. George meant the world to me. He would let me hunt in his fields and every time I saw him he would say " Did you get one yet " To this day I still haven't gotten one. I pray I do get one this year in George's name lol. He had such the snicker laugh. He would take me around the fence line to help him, It was just as much fun for me as I think it was for him. I would do odds and ends for him and we would enjoy it too. George will be missed and will be loved. God bless You Keith and Jeff. Your Dad was a great man!

Jeff and Keith, I am so very sorry to hear of your dad's passing. Your mom was one of my very best friends in high school and after many missed years, she found me on FB. Dale and I was able to visit them in their beautiful home several times and to meet for a meal or two. You were blessed to have these wonderful parents.
