Kaye & Bubba my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Turkey was an amazing man that I’ve love every since I was a little child. He was a lovely, gentle, kind teddy bear, but mean if he had to be. Just know that I love y’all and you’ll always be family to me.

Raymond was my best friend, we have hunted together and shared many laughs. Raymond and I were hunting, a few years ago, at the hunt club. While riding our four wheeler's he ran over a cotton mouth Moccasin, but did not hit it. I was right behind him and saw the snake, stopped and Raymond was yelling for me to shoot it. After it was dead he came up with a machete, I told him it was dead, but he said "just want to be sure" so he killed the dead snake.
If Raymond liked you he could not do enough to help. He was brave, honest and loved his family -- have to say he was a real man.
Will really miss him
