Billy, Virginia, Debby and Ms. Cottrell,
I have wonderful memories growing up in White Hall and being around your family. Mr. Cottrell was a good influence on me and others over the years. He seemed to always know the right way to explain things and have a great sense of what you kids were up to! Thanks for being a good family friend over during my formative years at White Hall. Your Dad was one of the original anchors to White Hall.
Betsy and I send our deepest sympathy to you all.
May GOD'S great love comfort you during this time of loss.
