    To my Uncle Norwood, thank you for being the Man you were and giving me my first paying job at 8 yrs old trucking tobacco. You helped teach me what a hard day's work was and what a square meal was, Pepsi and square nab. You'll always be in our heart and memories. Frank (Junior) Cupsta

    The Veitch family sends our love and prayers to the Davis's immediate and extended family. Praying for God's presence and strength for Grandma and for His Majesty's angels to come and assist her. "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Hebrews 1.14) The "purple" candle was picked as a symbol of royalty (purple as a color as old Roman symbol for Royals) since Granddaddy and Grandma are Royalty. Our love and prayers with the family at this loss, especially Grandma. Granddaddy will be missed. The Veitchs.
