Don't know much about the man that would have been my gramps, but I know he raised a great son if he had anything to do with how great my dad ... Is he must of been a great man.

Although we never knew our wonderful grandfather, I named my oldest son, the first grandchld on Leroy Fennell's side, after you. I just wish that we had the opportunity to have known you, the wife and children you left behind were awesome people with great integrity. You would have been proud!

As I think back on this incident, I am amazed at the service my grandfather provided for town of Cadwell, GA. I am also amazed that his wife raised his 12 children on her own after his death. Sounds like they both were two strong people who were committed to their duties and provided security to a town and also to their own family. I am proud and grateful that I am a decendant of the Fennell Family.

My grandfather. I wish I could have met him, but he was killed many years before I was born.

My grandfather, whom I never met. Your character was reflected in my father Leroy Eugene Fennell and my brother David Wayne Fennell. I am so sorry that I never had a chance to meet and have a talk with you, but as a veteran who has lost friends to war, I salute you for your service and sacrifice. Thanks to you, I am alive and well in 2013.

With love and regards,
