We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Aurbery. He was such a sweet man always willing to help you if he could. And he loved his grands especially the little blonde blue eyed girl as he would call her. We will miss him driving by and honking or waving some times stopping to see How Ted was even though he had been sick or un the hospital too. We remember when we first started going to McDonald's on Sunday and Wednesday nights after church from Black Oak he and Mary Ruth would be there. We happened to need a place to sit one evening he offered the extra seats at their table we struck up a conversation and from then on we would sit with them or Pete and Barbara Bell from Trinity. It wasn't long before they were asking us to singings or we would talk about the Lord. One new years eve they invited us to a new years eve watch service in Trumann and with in a couple weeks we were at Trinity worshiping with them. We so enjoyed the times we would go to singings gospel or a special preaching. After Mary Ruth passed Aubrey was ready to go too. Fly high our friend you will be missed
