My heart aches at the loss of a dear, lifelong friend & neighbor, but it overflows with gratefulness for the many laughs and fun times that Cotton brought to our lives. If there is a fishing hole in heaven, I can imagine that he is there now fishing and catching up with my daddy, Dane Birdsong, & E. H. Armor.

Such a loss for this county, family, friends, and Church. What can I say, but he was such a wonderful Christian. I will always remember one of Farrett's sermons where he talked about being raised in a Christian home and seeing his father reading his Bible daily. What a wonderful witness! I'm sure that heaven's gates opened wide for him. Love to you all, Mike and Margaret Patrick

I was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Cotton. He was a big supporter of our education program for the Master Timber Harvesters and Registered Foresters. He was always interested in making sure there were quality classes available, and was there for advice when needed. He will be greatly missed. My prayers are with his family.

Kay, Farrett, George and rest of the family...so very sorry about Cotton's illness and passing. Can't think back on my own childhood without remembering all the times our families got together for cook-outs and so forth...Birdsong, Boswell, Durham, Phelps, Veazey...boy, what fun we had! I remember Cotton's larger-than-life personality, mischievous grin, infectious laugh, good-natured teasing...and how he always made me feel welcome in your home (even after I accidentally split open George's cheek with a golf club!). Farrett, I've no doubt your daddy was looking down on you and bursting with pride during the service yesterday. Your composure was truly remarkable...and your comments a wonderful combination of funny, moving and memorable. Wish I'd been able to share this with all of you in person...but please know that you've been, and will continue to be, in my thoughts and prayers. ~Rebecca Phelps Long

As my football coach Cotton taught me the value of physical and mental discipline on the field of play. As my employer he taught me the value of hard work and not smoking cigars in his hay field. As a Christian he showed me the value of the spiritual graces of kindness and mercy. My daddy especially love Cotton with a deep respect for his integrity and service to the church and community. These lessons have lasted throughout my life. I am thankful to God for allowing Cotton to be a righteous influence in my life. Patrick Tice
