So many good memories, so many words to describe B.L.. But I know this for a fact, he is in the arms of the Lord with Doris and with as many in heaven who have welcomed him home as those of us here who will miss him dearly.

Randy, Lance, Melissa and families, We are unable to fly back for the funeral but are so thankful we got to see your Dad last month. We had a wonderful visit, though all too short. We have good memories of B.L. and your Mom, and that is what carries us through. It is a hard time of the year for the family, having lost Grannie Woodard in September, your Uncle Jessie (Wayne)in November, your Mom in January and now your Dad in October. Please know that even though we are 1000 miles away from you, we share your grief and loss of your Dad. We love you all. Renee
