Troy & I are humbled that you included us and it has been a joy to be neighbors for almost 10 years, even though we’ve known & loved you almost all our lives. You’re the kind of person we all should strive to be...kind, caring, loving & if we had a secret, you’d keep it. You were never one for gossip. You are a such a great person through-and-through. We will dearly miss you but we know you’re at peace now. All our love Nubbin. Debbie & Troy Ledbetter, July 7, 2020
