  • I will miss my cousin, but I’m glad I got to see him and hear his voice one last time
    before God called him home to his forever resting place. I’m going to miss you and miss your
    laugh ( that alone made others laugh with him, regardless if you knew what he said or
    not). I must admit he was one of a kind. He reminded me so much of my uncle Bob
    Whitt. Good bye dear cousin from this world. Love Vet

    Hey Pop’s,

    Missing you like crazy, but I know that you’re in a better place. Tell Aunt Faith I said Hi & that she’s missed as well.
    Don’t party too hard!! Love you


  • Alicia Fosque Whittington:

    Sorry I didn’t get too see you before you left this world. I kept making plans to stop by to see you but I never made it. I have fond memories of you with that smile. We usually spoke in passing but not much conversation was given. You will be missed. If you happen too see another young man up there in your journey tell him his mother says, “Hi!” I’m sure you two will get along just fine, he had the same kind of hearty laugh and smile.

    Sorrowfully submitted,
    Alicia Fosque Whittington
