Condolence & Memory Journal

Sorry for your loss. Sorry we are unable to be there. Carol you was there when Mom & Dad passed away. We all will miss him but my parents are with him now. Your Dad always looked to me as his "biggest" customer.He showed it as he "notched" the column in the store as I grew. May God be with you all Merrill & Elaine Morris

Ann, Johnny, Nancy, Carol and families: The deepest parts of my heart are aching for your loss! He was such a dear to me, for the many years I was in and around Canton. He accomplished much, in business, and in his family life. He lived well, he laughed, he gave himself joyfully, and he loved life in a way that will run through the threads of our lives forever! My love and prayers, Becky Williams Buckman
