Glenda and Vivian, we were sorry to hear about the lost of your father. We had the pleasure to spend time with him and your mother in 2010. I really enjoyed his sense of humor and his story telling. In fact, I videotaped a conversation that I had with him, regarding my grandfather Victor Dixon. I will share it with you in the near future. May God bless you, and comfort you in your time of grief!
