Grew up with Hesley's boys on Moody cove. As I became older Hesley and his brothers Randy, Gerald and Mike became all very close to my heart. Love all of them and consider them family as they did me. You will be missed dearly Tippy.

Life is so precious and so valuable. Each day being so important. All of my memories of Tippie are ones of joy. Growing up as a child hanging out with the family on weekends was always so fun we always loved going to see his mom and dad and all our cousins his love for his wife was obvious and now may God let them be together with family with no more loneliness not pain May God give the family comfort and peace unknownst to them. For those who were very close. Know God will give you strength to get thru this. To the family. May you lean on God and reach out when times are too sad. I will miss Tippie and the many childhood memories. Love you cuz.
