When I was a small boy Rhett provided my Mother with large cardboard boxes from Bud Burma and we used them as wall coverings in our little house. (Cardboard Sheetrock) He also provided rejected coat lining pieces that my Mother used to make cover for our beds. There were Bud Burma coat labels all over those quilts. I be she still has at least one or two left after these (55) or so years.(Man those quilts were slicker than any silk sheets you have ever seen.She even sewed some of those coat lining pieces together as coats for use around the house to protect our school coats from getting dirty or torn. Every time I saw Rhett I thought of those nice deeds he did for us. I just recently told a friend about these and other nice deeds/gestures Rhett did for us when I was a child. Thank You Rhett! Even though I did not see you a lot as an adult you will be missed. We are satisfied that you are resting with JESUS tonight.
Grace, I know you were a big part of the above and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We pray GOD will give you peace and comfort and happy thoughts every time you think of Rhett.
