    We go “way back” with Clayton and Anne, and love them very much. We hope they knew that. Thanks for all the “jobs.” Patsy & “Chigger” Blair

    The world has lost a ray of sunshine with the loss of this “wonderful” man… He meant the world to me and so many other people! Such a good father-in-law, grandfather & business man with the utmost compassion for all the lives that he touched – and not to mention the most charming sense of humor… I love you Henry Dorris and will carry you in my heart for the rest of my days!!

    Not only was Henry a great man to do business with but I enjoyed his company every time I was around him. Played many rounds of golf with him, went on many golf trips, Henry was just an all around great man.

    I wanted to say how sorry I am for the loss of such a wonderful person. I am praying for you Anne and your family. I will always cherish the Ya Ya get-togethers and all of his funny stories and jokes. His smile would light up the room and his smile is lighting up Heaven today. Heaven sure gained a wonderful angel yesterday. He will be missed.
