PeeWee loved to be around good people and to have a fun time, he loved to go fishing and he loved a good spade game while listening to and singing along to music, we often did our version of Karaoke open mic night at Pooh's house.(to anyone who has ever participated in it, I bet your smiling right now)

PeeWee grew up saying everyone he met was his cousin. When growing up I can't tell you the number of times he would bring someone home to tell Ma they was our cousin. So to all y'all here that ever met him- Hi Cousin!

PeeWee fought a good fight and held on as long as he could.  He talked with Mama the Friday before he died, they talked and she prayed for him and rubbed his back, I  heard him tell her  " "Mama I'm tired".

My message to yall is Get Right Church So We Can Go Home
