  1. Melba, We were saddened to learn of your Dad\’s death. He will always be remembered fondly for his smile and genuine concern for everyone with whom he came in contact. So often on the streets of New Haven his friendly wave would beckon me, and for a few minutes we\’d chat and catch up on each other\’s lives. Family meant the world to him. I will never forget him. Love, Mary & Nelson

  2. Dear Grandpa, as time continues to pass, I now truly understand exactly what you helped instill in me; ALWAYS choose right over wrong! And for that, I’ll ALWAYS love, respect, and miss you… Sincerely Your Grandson, David Bailey / Luke 1:37!
