I wanted you to know that I always thought of Doc as such a sweet man. He used to come to the Blue Roof truckstop when I was a waitress, he always had a smile and so you just wanted to hug him.

I was just thinking about him over the week-end when we ordered (Doc''s breakfast) off the menu.

Sorry for your loss.

On behalf of the Fountain City Lions Club, we want the family to know how much we thought of "Doc".  He not only was a tenant at the Senior Apartments, he was our friend.  His smile and humor lit up the building when he was present.  The ladies of the apartments will be lost without him.  And we, the Lions, have lost a great friend.
