Marshall and Paulette;
I’m sorry for the loss of your brother. He had a long and fruitful life, something to be thankful for even while you are mourning. I look forward to seeing each of you sometime when I visit ‘Fayetteville. I have many fond memories of you both.

Uncle Toe,

Words can never express how special you are and how much you have meant to everyone. Your leaving left such an emptiness in our lives, but I know you are forever well now and in God’s presence and I can only imagine the smile on your face and I am so thankful that you are my uncle and for having you in my life, a true blessing. You touched everyone you met in such a special way, like an angel here on earth. We love you so much.
