    So sorry for your loss. I did not know him personally, but I am related to him somewhere down the line. My grand daddy was Frank May & my daddy was Billy W May Sr. You are all in my thoughts & prayers.

    My granddaddy loved his life more than I ever thought a person could love something. He never met a stranger and truly shined a light anywhere he went. He always shared how happy he was to see us or how proud he was of us. May we live our lives just like he did, loving those around us every moment. He will he missed by many.
