Many good memories of Uncle Donny and his family, always so much fun to visit. Even the night Chuck pulled me down the Aunt Elsie's hill by my nose attached to his fishing rod (fun-all but that part). Just got off the phone with my mom Jenny Lee, she is heart broken they missed out on so much of each others lives. Best wishes and love as you all go through your loss. Cousin Butch

Our sincere sympathy from the Stevenson family to Alan Haywood and his family on the recent death of your "papaw". May you find that in time you will remember him with smiles rather than tears when you think of him. May God comfort each of you.
