  1. the picture is what I remember of Felton. A little smile as if he was up to something. My kids moved to Dacula in grammar school and wanted to know who the heck this cousin was that aggravated them and cat called when they were walking home.
    As we all did they learned to love Felton. I know he will be greatly missed and I wish his family all the best in the world. They surely gave great memories.

  2. May God comfort you during this time of sorrow. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled Trust in God, and trust also in me” -John 14:1
