It's been many years since seeing and speaking with Cotton. I used go Deer hunting with Cotton and have many fond memories.

I was sadden to hear of his passing.

We were so sorry to read about "Cotton's" passing away. Please know that your family is in our prayers. I remember Cotton very well from the days we sang in the choir together. This was before Central moved to it's current location, while we were still worshipping at the old St. John's building. He was a very friendly and kind man. We know he will be sorely missed.

Our prayers are with you.

What an honor to have shared in the life of this great man. There were few times that I visited him that he would not smile. I pray you all hold dear the precious memories which have made him such a great man. It was an honor to serve you! Sincerely, Chaplain Fred Parker

Cotton was a "give you the shirt off his back" type of guy. Then would make sure you had shoes, pants, coat, and a hat and something to eat. Outstading man and a fine neighbor. We were privilaged to have known him and Betty. Heaven was proud to receive them. Our condolances to the family. May our Lord comfort you in your loss.
