    Arlene and family, We are so sorry for the lose of your husband, father and grandfather. We know the only words of comfort are from his the world of God that say’s I will never leave you comfortless. He understands the pain in your heart and the grief that will come as you miss your precious loved one.. We have the hope that one day we will see him again in Heaven. Know now that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May God’s sweet Holy Spirit comport you during this time. You are in our prayers. Love, Bobby & Beverly Watts Hunter, Wayne Manlove, Lynn Cunningham
