My childhood memories are filled with visions of Uncle Ab and his dogs, cousins and relatives in the warm Kentucky sun. Good memories. My wife Kim and I were able to visit with Ab and Tiny a couple of years ago, and I'm so glad she got to meet them. He was truly a blessed man- he had the love of family and friends, and the Lord's peace in his heart. May God's peace be with you all today, and may the memories of Ab put a smile on your face for years to come. It will for me. Love, Tim

My Papaw was the hardest working man I have ever known. I didn't get to see him as often as I would have liked, but I love him dearly and will miss him very much. I have so many memories of him that I talk to my kids about often, and hope that I can carry on his memory for many more years. As sad as we are that he is no longer with us, we can take comfort in knowing he is now with Mamaw, Dad, Brandon, and other family and that we now have one more angel looking down upon us.

Uncle Ab will be missed and my memories of him will be cherished. Thanking God for his love, his mercy and the gift of memories. I have many fond memories, but, on one of the last visits to see my uncle and his family I witnessed uncle Ab reading the bible and he smiled a smile that was a deep loving smile that only comes with feeling the love of the Lord. It made me cry and rejoice. God I ask you to be with my uncle Ab's
family and let each one feel your wonderful love, give them peace. Love, Brenda
