I cannot begin to describe Mr. Battle, as I knew and called him, in so few words. He was a man that Janie and I called a great friend, a great neighbor, a great gardener and home maintence expert, and a great sentinel in times we were away. His presence was felt like a family relative's is felt, his pleasant smile and abundantly generous nature valued as few others could possibly be, and the example he and his beloved wife Hazel set for those of us to follow was second to none.
Our hearts go out to Mrs Battle as she mourns her loss after 71 years of marriag. Our prayers ask for the wonderful milestones of such a marriage to rush to the forefront as time soothes the aches of loss and replaces them with sweet memories of cherished times together. May God bless each of you in these trying times. Our love to you all,
Janie and Monroe Yarbrough
