My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mr. Stokes for your loss. No doubt he lived a long, fulfilling life and you will miss him dearly. I hope you can draw comfort from Gods word, as I have, where He promises us that there is going to be a resurrection and that we can be reunited with our dear loved ones again - right here on the earth. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:9,10;

The first crawfish boil I attended was at their old house on south ninth street. Some of my most memorable Deer hunts as a teenager was with Gaynell and Keith. Awesome times, awesome family. Will be truly missed.
