Susan and Iris Ann, our thoughts go out for your family as you deal with the loss of your precious daddy. I remember so many conversations with him and your mother when I lived in Cottonwood. Prayers for comfort in these days of grief.

Susan and Iris, I'm so sorry for your loss. I work at the Hobo Pantry and although I'm not from Cottonwood, I saw it through your Daddy's eyes. I looked forward to him coming in to drink coffee in the evenings and tell me about his memories of the town. He knew everyone and all of their relatives. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Tina Rolph
