Uncle Nose,
It's me "Big Belly Whooper." I will never forget the love You and Aunt Bea shared at a very low point in my life . You opened your home and treated me like one of your own. You helped me to work through some issues that only You, Aunt Bea and Deena knew. The talks that we shared during that time, the many hugs that you gave and the support given was something that will never be forgotten. The last time I had the opportunity to see you was truly a joy from the bottom of my heart. I thank God for that moment and the video that captured the joy on your face it will always be treasured. Rest well Uncle Nose you will be sorely missed but never ever forgotten!
Loving You Always,
Paula (James) Tucker

Uncle Nose, what a man and human being. Uncle had set the standards as to how to love family and friends. I will always cherish the time with him and remember the family gatherings full of laughter and joking with one another. Uncle Nose, I will always remember you waiting patiently for my tuna fish salad and yet my cooking. It has been my pleasure and honor to serve such a gentleman, and a man who strongly believed in Integrity. I will deeply miss you Uncle but you will continue to live on in my conversations and actions - "Integrity".

God's Peace,
Niece - Lydia James Farmer

My heartfelt sympathies to you Deena, your mom and family. I will always remember your Dads big voice and more importantly his big heart & smile. He was such a great person, no one could meet him without being touched by his wisdom and humor. I will forever be grateful for him for stepping in to be a father figure to me after I lost my dad. He always had advice and guidance that was comforting. He made us laugh everytime he stepped in the room. He will be missed and remember for being one of the best fathers, husband and friends. Anything you all need, don't hesitate! Love you.
