He has been a local favorite for many years. . . .Born and raised on a cotton farm, he had first hand experience with the bitter sweet challenges of farming in the Delta. . . .He also loved listening to the stories of which his Grandpa and other old-timer's spoke--times that were hard but rewarding. . .Precious memories of family, home, friends, struggle, love of the land. . . .He never forgot them and now he's sharing them with us!
