To the great-grandpa I never knew. You raised a son who took in a young widow with two daughters to raise and cherish. Papaw told us about you as we grew up, and when we were older told us about that fateful day. You are a hero to us, your 5 great-grandchildren. You now have 7 great-great grandchildren, and I promise they will know as much as they can about you and the service you gave to Harlan Co. Your son, our papaw, was a wonderful man who left usceirh many happy memories! Thanks again, papaw, for all you did and the wonderful family you left behind
