Thinking of all you today, Lot of fond memories of summers together, Your family would fight over the last piece of corn pie. Also, I gave up eating corn for a few years after shucking corn on your front porch and finding a silk worm. I think I was twelve. Love Sherry

Tammy, Debbie, Cathy, Billy, and Families No words can express the deepest sympathy I would like to extend to your family at this time. Your father was a very intelligent, talented, kind, caring, loving, man (father). It is evident in each one of you (his children). Hold onto the each other and the memories he has left behind to keep him alive in all your hearts. He came to visit Billy one day with containers of homemade applesauce he had made from the apple trees at the his home. He told me the "secret" was to add cinnamon disk candies as the apples cooked down. Needless to say, everyone loved it! I went on to share the "secret" recipe with my grandchildren at home! He touched so many people in so many aspects of his life. My heart felt thoughts and prayers are with you all.
