Greene County has lost a good man. He had a big heart and was always thinking and caring for others. He was a good friend and will be missed. He was a very close friend of my daddy's and I sure hope they have met up with each other and catching up on the good times and probably have found a pond or two to fish in. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. Zeke and Phillip, I definetly know what it is like to lose a father. All I can say is time will heal your pain. If the family needs anything please do not hesistate to give us a call. Also, my mother, Barbara Webb, you may not know is very sick in the hospital and will not be able to attend the services. She expresses her thoughts and sympathy to the family and will visit when she is feeling better. Sincerely, Laurie Webb Rimes, Adrian Rimes & Barbara Webb.
