BAILEY helped build character in my life after my dad told him to wake me for work anytime of the night and he wasn’t bashful about doing that! He took his occupation seriously and gave it his all, always! I never met another man so devoted to God which was obvious to me and all his friends!
Rest In Peace

Bailey's love of Christ was a wonderful witness to all of us. I remember him coming in to church on Sunday morning after he had worked all night sitting with his arms crossed, dark glasses as he slept, sometimes snoring so loud Berthina nudged him awake. He loved everyone and found joy in his family and the little things of life and now his joy is complete. The Bill White family will miss him but we will see him again
