    Pops, I hope I brought you some joy during the last hours of your life with telling you so many funny stories from our lives. You smiled a lot as you held a constant look at me. I asked you if you were smiling, because it looked like you were, and you replied “yeah”. I told you to think about those funny stories I told you, to always remember them and you said “yeah”, then laid your head back to rest. I am Blessed that the Lord gave me that final moment, for closure, until I see you again in our Fathers house.

    Lovingly your #2 son,

    What a great man, and family. He will surely be missed. He taught me two lessons in my younger days. #1, careful who you out fish, you might go swimming, and not because you wanted to. #2, when he put on boxing gloves, he wasn’t going to take it easy on you. Lol. I will never forget those days. I wish I could be there for you Tim. RIP Mr, and Mrs Touchton.

I remember the talk we had about his faith in God , He loved God with all his heart, and I know he is in Heaven now ! He will be greatly missed! I can’t be there but all the family are in my thoughts and Prayers!
