I have many memories with this man from riding in the parade in his model a ford to playing music on Friday nights in Danville. If you could do something, he "used could do it". He was crazy about his family. He was the oldest member of Pleasant Hill Baptist. He loved playing bluegrass gospel music and enjoyed listening to it. I know his last year's in earth was hard, he hurt so much, but I have peace in mind that he is in heaven, and no longer in pain. Rest in peace Pepaw, we all love you and will see you again one day.
