  1. I often think of Mr.Foy,aka PawPaw as I sit and watch a SAINTS game! I enjoyed being able to watch the game with him and Greg. I loved to hear him talk about his past and jobs he had done. Knowing his history made his words of wisdom much more important.Because he was normally quite I had to ask questions to get his words out, Haha. He often spoke of how he wanted his Grandsons to grow up to be great men. I pray that Greg,Chris,and Matthew do continue to grow into Great men and then they would know thier father and pawpaw would be proud. I pray as you guys ajust to this chapter of life. Remembering all the fun times,happy times, and the love you all share. I will be praying as I do on a regulary basis for you guys! May Gods love, peace, understanding, and comfort be with your family. Love always, Jessica.

  2. If memory serves me, Buck and Cleta were coming home from Germany and they stopped by Enterprise to see us. Days before you could tell Daddy was excited that his baby brother was coming home! He called all their sisters to let them know to come by the house. For a couple days, I got to sit and listen to stories of the past and hopes for the future, but mostly I remember Buck and Daddy, deep in conversation, happy see each other and catching up.Thinking about that, I'd bet Buck is with Billy Wayne right now, happy to see his son again and catching up.God Bless
