    I am sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Gatlin. Ed and his wife Burnadean were wonderful people. We lived on Bee Spring Rd. and loved talking with Burnadean every chance we got. Usually at Wal Mart. There are alot of special people ion Dellrose area and we were blessed to know each one of them. Prayers for the family and friends. Hugs,
