    For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judges, shall give me at that day: and not me only, but into all them that love his appearing. II Timothy 4:6-8

    Paw Paw you will be truly missed. You served your country and our family for a long time and I truly thank you for your time and the lessons you taught me growing up. It seems like yesterday that you Uncle Sweetne and Uncle Tommy would make your rounds to the house and get us up out of bed to go cut firewood for the entire family. Theses are days I remember oh so well. I love you more than life itself. You will be truly missed. REST IN HEAVEN LOVE Christopher Thompson
