  1. Preston was a wonderful, Christian man. His guitar and mandolin music was a joy to hear!

    Requiescat in pace (rest in peace), dear Preston.

  2. When Preston married my mother, Clydene, he fill a void for so many of my family. A loving companion for my mother until her death. Father figure for myself, my brother and sisters. Granddad for my kids, nephews and nieces, and a brother in law to all of my mother’s immediate family. I have never met a more caring, accepting, God loving, hard working, and talented man. Thank you Preston, God blessed us by bringing you into our lives, and blessed you by giving you a long and fruitful life. You will be missed.
    Lillie Mae, may God continue to bless you with courage and strength during this difficult time and provide you with good health and happiness.

  3. We welcomed Preston into our family when he was married to Clyde ‘ene., my sister. Her children loved him and how he loved my sister before losing her to cancer. We know that he’s still playing his guitar, too, in heaven. Rest in peace sweet man! Lillie Mae,, I pray for your remaining time to be sweet and pure.
