I remember my cousin coming down South during the summer, something he loved to do my mother his Auntie Ruby remembers. He would also work on the farm with his family. We will cherish these memories.

Our condolences go to all the family, and special prayers to Mary the wife and Mary the mother, my Aunt. May God give us all peace above our own understanding during this time. Love to everyone until we meet again.

My heart hurts to hear about Dennis. Dennis was a good friend of the family and he also was charge over our department at Lakeland. He would come and work with me on stripping floors and teaching me the old skool way. He was a hard worker and dedicated to his work. When he left Lakeland our department felt the void and he was missed and when he came back, I remember everybody was so happy to see him visit. He was such a good guy always made everyone smile and had a great sense of humor. We called him DenDen at work, because of how kool he was. I’m so sorry for your loss, such a great loss! May GOD BLESS AND STRENGTHEN you all during this time. Praying for you all.
