I first remember your wife, who was my Great Grandmother Hargis. It was after her death that I heard stories about you. Later, your daughter Stella (my Grandmother, Mimi) was there when a memorial was held in your honor. It was after her death that I found this memorial page and now I pay tribute to you. You will be remembered.

Well, you died when Mimi (Stella) was still a kid, so Mom wasn't even thought of, therefore of course I wasn't even thought of.

Mimi is in heaven with you now as of Oct. 2004. I really miss her.
