Guest Book Highlights

September 25, 2020 "Blessings and peace to the Groom family. I will remember Winston Groom as a fun, storytelling, big smiling, eyes twinkling, taller than an oak, Southern gentleman. He was always accommodating and always smiling. He could weave a basket full of tales and was beyond brilliant. I'm sure he's bending God's ear, and well "that's all I got to say about that."" - Jack Bacot
September 23, 2020 "Beautifully written book and move. My sincere condolences to the Groom family. May the God of all comfort provide you all the strength to cope with your loss " - TD
September 22, 2020 "Martha and I are very sorry for your loss, and we are loosing too many, too fast. I certainly wish I could have met Winston, having enjoyed many of his writings." - Martha & Jep Hill
September 22, 2020 "I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Groom. His Mother, Mrs. Ruth K. Groom taught English and Creative Writing classes at Murphy High School and it was fortunate to be in her class in 1966. Mr. Groom shared her wonderful smile and sense of humor. He will be missed by many." - Jewel T. Bragg
