Aunt Barbara, Charlotte, Junior, Dave and Family, Our hearts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Praying God will wrap His arms around each of you and give you the comfort that only He can give. I know you have many sweet memories of Uncle Jimmy and I know they will be a blessing to you in the future. I will never forget his kind, sweet attitude and that smile he had for everyone he met. He was a real gentleman. I look forward to the day, as I'm sure you all do, when there will be no more pain, illness or sorrow and we can all be reunited. My heart is with you. Love, Betty Lou and Jimmy

David, I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t have the chance to know your father, but I know he must have been someone special to have raised a great son like you.” I'm praying for you and wishing you moments of peace and comfort.

Our sincere condolences to the Litten family. In 1984 is when I first had the privilege of meeting the Litten family. Wonderful memories of family gatherings, graduations and weddings took place over the many years. Papa would always have a good time and his laugh was infectious. I always looked forward to seeing Papa & Nannie Litten. May the loving memories of Papa Litten's life comfort you & others whose lives he touched. God Bless, you are in my heart & Prayers. Your extended family from New Hampshire , Aunt Donna

Papa, As I stand over you tomorrow my mind will take me back to the summer of 1980 when I first met you and Nannie. I knew then that you'd be a big part of my life. I'll see that smile and hear that laughter that gets everyone else laughing. Most of all I thank God for you and Nannie and that I had you in my life...because you two helped lead me to my salvation in my late 20s. That's the greatis gift anyone can give another person. So because of that I know I'll see you again....you'll always be in my heart!

David my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your father. Though I never met him I felt like I knew him from your loving comments about him. Everyone has a father but us lucky ones had a Dad. I know he will be solely missed but he is now at home and healthy with all his loved ones that went before him. May God continue to comfort and bless your family.
