Alton was such a sweet, energetic man. I never say him without a smile on his face. Your marriage of over 6 decades is a testimony to God’s great love in your life (and a lot of perseverance and grace). Thank you for being a testimony to the rest of us. We will go on remembering and loving Alton until we gather with him around the throne! I love you! Lisa

Jeri, I cannot remember a time in the years we’ve known you that Alton wasn’t smiling or greeting everyone around him. His life was a remarkable journey and you as well as the boys will find comfort in those memories. Until we all gather again and see his smiling face, please know we love you and are praying for you all.
Sending hugs, Larry and Kathi

Jeri, First know that you are loved by your church family, friends, boys, extended family and so many others. I know that no one loved you more than Alton and that can not be replaced but we are here for you. Alton was a great man of God who loved God, loved you, and loved others. It was an honor to know him and I look forward to the time to see him again. I will miss seeing that smile on his face but look forward to seeing yours! We love you. Brice
