Uncle Amos and Aunt Alice were such a blessing to my wife Patsy and I. When I was in Navy school in Pensacola, she stayed with them for about two months. I would come there on the weekends. He would take us fishing out on Lake Sampson and down to the Saint Johns river. We have fond memories of our family there in Florida over the years. Love you uncle Amos.

Thank you for being so amazing! I still remember each and every memory with you. All the summers and hunting trips throughout the years. You always had time for us kids and taught each one of us so much! We were a lucky family to have you. I will think about you and see you on my phone each and every day.

Love you,
