Nanny and Shonda, I feel so blessed to have been able to share a part of your lives growing up. The times I traveled with Shonda to Villa Rica to stay with you and Pawpaw are such sweet memories! I can picture him sitting in his chair smiling and joking around. He was such a sweet man. I bet he is making everyone laugh in Heaven! I hope you can find comfort in the fact that you will see him again some day with our blessed Savior! Love, Terri Akers and family

I was very sad to here of Mr Skinner passing away, He was a true Wildcat fan and I allways enjoyed our conversations during the games. We made fun of each other, with me being a Tennessee fan and Mr. Skinner being the biggest UGA fan it allways made for interesting talk between us. I will truley miss him, Villa Rica and the football games will not be the same with out him. Our Deepest Sympathy The Hickman Family
