Goodbye to a wonderful man who shared his love with all of his family, and everyone he called family. He was a exemplary grandfather to James R. Outen, Jr. (James) and the best in-law anyone could hope for. I know there was a grand celebration in heaven, as many loved ones opened their arms to welcome him home. He leaves a beautiful example of a life lived in faith. Love you forever. Nickye, my heart and prayers are with you.
