    We were so shocked to hear of our cousin’s passing. Pleasant memories of every time we met. He was always ready with a smile and a praise for the Lord. Love y’all! The Axton siblings, Robert (Sandy), Barbara (Steve), Sharon (Carl), and Carol

    My precious brother, my heart is broken that you are gone from me, but I am happy that Jesus has given you rest. You have always been there for me even when you were greatly inconvenienced to do so... can't put into words how much I miss you already. "Feast at Jesus table."
