The msg on Facebook from his pastor called him a true southern gentleman. I totally agree. He was a tender spirit in a tough country man. I will miss his voice, his generous love for others and our dances wherever the music was playing. He appreciated God's beautiful world and His love for us. He will be greatly missed forever.
