What do you say at a time like this ? My heart is crushed doodlebug and you will be truly missed . I remember all the times you and i and Tina and bubba went to the VFW and danced the night away and your smile was always the same warm and caring . We shared many laughs and fun times but you would always look after everyone and kept the peace among all . You were a loving soul and i will remember that always . Rest in peace my sweet friend . Love Tracy Smith and Family !

This is really a sad time. My granddaughter doesn't understand why her grandpa was taken for no reason but she does say that he is now in heaven with her mom(Robin Richards) so she's gonna be happy about that instead of being sad. She's only 6 but she seems to have a positive outlook on everything even the hard to believe things. For his children & grandchildren please know that we love & pray for y'all every day.
