You are certainly missed here at the barber shop. Always a smile & chuckle of the day. "Come on girl, give me a hair cut". I will remember your stories about your grandchildren. Walter you made our day better, every time we saw you. Good man, good friend! Melinda@Red's barbershop

You know I loved you. I am among many. You were probably the best Bridgeport, and this world, had to offer. I cherish the wonderful memories that pile up in my mind these days, all the way back to holding hands on the school bus in 1967.
Can't keep a good man down!! You flew high last Thursday, and the angels escorted you home.
I look forward to the day we meet again.
Always and forever,

Freda Davis Morrison
