Dear Zerah and Family, I am sorry to hear about the loss. What a great man Dub was. He was always the life of the crowd. I know that he will be surely missed. If there is anything that I can do for any of you please let me know. I will miss getting to hear him tell stories that him and J.B. (Paw-Paw) use to do. I still have the beautiful baby bed that he made for me when I was a very little girl. I love yall and I will keep yall in my thoughts and prayers. Love Ashley
