We all have had many good times together at Parades and Shows all over this Northeast corner of the state.We all knew how much he loved the Super C as well as his wife and family.
The five generations with the Super C last summer at the Edenton Parade gave him much joy and l am glad we were able to do that for your family.
The membership of both groups will be keeping you and your family in our prayers.
