Alton and uncle Dan Al and I are thinking of you both during the lost of your father and brother David Wilmoth

We are so sorry to hear of Big Papas passing. This is the name his great grandson Jackson called him. We always enjoyed how he loved seeing Jackson and rubbing his round little head as he put it. He was a very kind,smart, generous and loving person. He will be greatly missed, but remember he is at peace now and in a better place, and the best part about that is GOD has another angel. Our prayers are with all the family. The Browns
