    I really liked uncle Emmitt. He always had a quick wit about him and he could make anybody laugh. He always had a good demeanor about himself and was a joy to be around. His son Enmitt and I are friends as well as cousins. I enjoyed being around Dixie and Harley Hank as well fond memories of all of y’all. Sandy I’m so sorry for your loss and will have all of y’all in prayers.
