    For a lot of you that knew him growing up,He was called “Country” or “Slim”.I just called him Daddy. For those of you that knew him well, a hand shake agreement was just like having it written in blood. My father would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. But you had to always do what you promised him. I think sometimes he was part elephant,because he didn’t forget anything. My father was the most dedicated person I have ever known when it came to his word,his work,and responsibilitys. He was brought up hard and had many tragidys in his life. parents,wifes,a sister,a daughter and a grand daughter all passed away befor him. I’m sure that weighed heavy on his mind.
    I love you and I will miss you!!
