    Although we've only known y'all for a short time we could enjoy and appreciate the love shared by this family. Ray was an enormous force in his community, on the farm, and anytime you spent time with him, for us it was always around the diner. We can't imagine how hard this loss will be for Mendie and his girls but we pray you find peace in knowing he touched so many lives and was by all accounts, a wonderful man. God bless you and comfort you.

    Sorry to hear of Woody's death. Spent time with him as a volunteer fire fighter, along with the training and competitions. Always friendly and outgoing. Rest in Peace my friend...

    I am so thankful that I could watch Woody’s service that was videoed today. Sadly, I couldn’t attend . Woody and I went to school together and were good friends. It’s obvious he touched many lives in school and continued for many years after. My prayers and love go to his beautiful family. He will be missed.

    Mendie and family. So sorry for your loss. It was such a good surprise to see Woody at the diner not too long ago. I worked along Woody's side with AVFD many years ago and anyone that knew Woody could tell his passion for the department. This world is less a good person. Please know that you and the Daniel family are in our thoughts and prayers.
