Thank you all for your kind and powerful tributes to my grandfather. I never knew him, but I grew up with his legacy of integrity and service. His family and community vividly remember and love him. I would like to add a photograph of him to this page, but I don't think I can. Thank you all for your service and dedication as well.
Respectfully,
Laura Sorrells
