    My Prayers are with you as I know the Lord is with you through this time. I have fond memories of BELVIN my uncle especially during our family vacations to see our family in the Carolinas. I remember how much he loved his wife Shirley.I remember how he liked to talk on his CB radio, and how he loved collecting hats from every place he had been. He also took an intrest in us kids,and on vacation he would take us waterskiing around the lake. Im Thankful I was able to see him not to long ago on a trip down there with my parents. It amazed me that he recognized us and called us by name and it was a nice visit. But I have to mention the funniest thing I saw him do. Whenever we would visit the nursing home with my aunt Shirley , he would do a little dance for her. he would run to her and hold her. I thoought that was the most adorable thing in the world. His love for her! Now we can rest in the Lord knowing he is with our Father in heaven never to suffer anymore. Love from me to Diane and Debbie MY wonderful cousins and my Precious Aunt SHIRLEY Love, Priscilla
