Dear Edwin, did not know of your loss until way after. Daddy enjoyed sports watching with Austin at the store ( on his special stool). Many memories of the store and the many customers that were part of the fixtures there. God be with your family. Daughter of Choc & Emma Loftice Dianne (Loftice) Brown, October 14, 2005 God Bless You, Austin. I miss your face at the home. Dorothy Lorance Gibson, May 11, 2005 Dear Eddie: I've been out of town and have just seen the obituaries and found out that your father had passed. I extend my condolances and sympathy. Your father was always so cheerful and nice to me. Every time I would stop in for a Dr. Pepper he would smile and ask me how's it going and how were my parents. He was a good man. I lost both of my parents in 2001. It was a difficult time for me. May the Peace of the Lord comfort you now and forever more.

Dorothy June Lorance Gibson, September 28, 2004 Dear Edith and Edwin, I was so saddened to hear about Austin. I have many great childhood memories from the store. Before Dad passed last week, we shared some of the memories from those days. Austin was one of Dad's best friends and he always made him laugh. They were both fun to be around. You are in our thoughts and prayers, may God bless you all. Rocky Marty Bailey, September 27, 2004
