Memories Timeline


  1. Earnest please give my love to Mamaw and Papaw and my Daddy. Tell them that I love and miss them daily and please keep an eye on all of us down here. I’m so thankful that God took you as you would have wanted, doing the things you loved. Until I see all of you again, keep that laugh going, and tell Mamaw to save me a bowl of mashed taters. Kiss Cleo from me and Mom, tell Squirrel I miss him to, Lord the list is so long, to long….
