He was a special man that loved his family and friends and always made me feel welcome anytime I visited with his Special daughter, Debra who I know loved her daddy very much and spent countless hours helping out around the house just trying to help her mother anyway she could. She's talked to me in many conversations about how much she loves her daddy and how she's gonna miss him so much when he leaves to go be with our wounderful Lord but knowing he's a man of God will bring you Debra and the family peace in your hearts.  Debra , I love you and I love your family so please let me know what I can do to help if there's anything thing any of y'all need..
