Haven’t seen Peanut in many years but remember how kind he always was, to me, and others. A gentleman always. My condolences to the family and all who knew and cherished him. ‘Peanut’: Rest In Peace.

Jo Nell, I’m so sorry I couldn’t attend your dad’s funeral. I had taken my aunt to the doctor. Peanut was a good neighbor to us for many years. It’s so hard to lose a parent but you will see him again-I’m praying for God to wrap his healing arms around you. Ann and Charles Warren

I just saw this about Peanut. I hate that I have missed coming to see the family. I am so sorry. I would see him occasionally at breakfast in Bethel. I know he will be missed. Thinking of all of you. Eddie

Very sorry to hear that Peanut had passed away. Will miss seeing him down at the Jukebox at lunch time. Sorry we didn't find out in time to make the service. He always reminded me a lot of Aunt Katy and Nanny. I know you will miss him very much.
