  • Raymond Nettles
    Relationship: Son

    When I came into this world and I needed a father, you were there. Even though you were my uncle by marriage to my mother's sister, you provided a home and a good life. From an early age, we spent many hours fishing all over the area. You taught me how to be a good fisherman and a good man. When I was seven years old, I moved away to my grandparents' home. Up until a few years ago, I didn't know that my leaving hurt us both. Even though I spent weekends and summers at your house, it was never the same again. When I worked at your company during summer school breaks, I was so proud of the respect that everybody gave you. You were respected by every person in the company. That taught me that a black man can get respect by hard work. I could never repay you for the things you did for me but I will always love and cherish the times we had together. Until I see you again, Love Raymond
