Jennie, Bud and Corky ... I am so sorry to hear about Roy's passing. He was a wonderful, kind fellow and I always loved seeing him and the rest of the family. He and Jennie would pick Paul up sometimes when he was little and came back to TN from AZ for summer breaks and they would take him down to the lake to fish and hang out. Precious times. Love you all and prayers to you for strength and guidance in the coming weeks.

I enjoyed knowing Mr. Arrowood, he was obviously a good man and blessed to have a family who loved him and honored him. I'm certain that he was comforted to have his family around him as he passed into the arms of Jesus. I'm honored to have known him and his family. I'll pray for comfort and strength for the family and Mrs. Arrowood and that your suffering will soon turn into comfort that he is in a better place with no pain or suffering.
I am so sorry to hear about Pop. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
I have good memories of LeRoy and the family. One of my favorites is when my brother Kenny and his sons would walk to Jonesborough and ask for money to buy a drink. He would tell them to get a drink of water when you leave and get a drink of water when you get there. Sending prayers to all.

My sincerest condolences to Roy's family - I know they will miss him as will I. I tried to visit him whenever I was in the Jonesborough area. As a 1st Cousin, we knew other almost from birth. RIP my friend and enjoy your reward in heaven.
Buddy so sorry for your loss, prayers for all the family
