My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Gary. May God comfort you in the days to come. Cathy Stratton Brumley
Unc, was always so very good to me. Some of my greatest childhood memories are all the great times we had together. When Kenny was so sick 10 years ago and in the hospital for 3 months, he came to see us. He wanted to know if we needed any money. He said he would loan it to us and we could pay it back when we could. We didn't have any money problems but that touched me more than I can say. I loved him, Aunt Maylene and you of course so much. I wish I could be there but know I will keep praying for all of you. Love you Cous, Betty Sue
You will be missed. rest in peace
