    Walking With Daddy
    When I was a child I had to tag along,wherever he went he never went alone.
    I struggled in his footsteps trying to keep up,discouraged at times I never gave up.
    In later years we walked side by side,the paths of our footsteps we never had to hide.
    So proud to walk holding Daddy’s hand,he proved himself to be my best friend.
    I’m reminded of words I said long ago,’walk a little slower Daddy, I want to go.”

    Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you and your family…

    Love, Glenda Copas

    I remember all the times at “Ninnie’s” house when Uncle Rex and the family would visit. He’d help us with our current Lego project and was always happy to see us. I have felt nothing but love ever come from Uncle Rex and while I know he’s resting now, he’s still going to be hard to let go of. Love to the whole family.
    Love and prayers, Jennifer and Chris Jones

    Rex was indeed a good man. He came to the nursing home at least two times a week to see my mother-in-law him and Freddie and prayed with her everytime before they left. Needless to say we lost her on April 4,2010. Rex then started coming to our house and really hepled my husband. Rex was a treasure. May God Bless All of The Family.
